Who we share your personal information with
If you are attending an event, we will share your information with our event providers (if any). Apart from that, we generally only use your information within Inside Ideas Group and our subsidiaries.
However, sometimes we use other organisations that provide certain services for us, for instance our customer relationship management system or our cloud provider.
We will share your personal information with these organisations to a certain extent depending on the nature and scope of services they are providing to us. We have appropriate contracts in place to make sure they are processing personal information in accordance to our instructions.
Sometimes we receive requests for information from government departments, the police and other enforcement agencies. If there is a legal requirement for sharing your personal information, we will provide it to the organisation that is asking for it.
We currently do not engage with third party advertising providers.
Where we process your personal information and the safeguards we have taken for it
Normally, we will only store and use your personal information in our systems, which are mainly located in the United Kingdom. However, sometimes, we may need to transfer your information to Inside Ideas Group companies located outside the United Kingdom and the European Economic Area. In order to ensure a sufficient protection of such transfers we have put in place data sharing agreements amongst our companies.
Moreover, some of our service providers are located overseas. We have taken steps to make sure that your personal information is transferred only to those organisations which have appropriate safeguards in place, such as commitment to the EU – U.S. Privacy Shield, Binding Corporate Rules or other mechanisms.
How long we keep your personal information
Except for dietary requirements and disability information which we delete immediately after an event, we usually keep your data for no more than 3 years after the end of our customer relationship or from your last interaction with us.
Our commitment to you
We will process your personal information in line with applicable laws. This means that we will:
- only collect and hold information about you which we need for a particular purpose;
- keep your personal information up to date and accurate (to help us do this, please let the Sales and Marketing Team know if any of your details change);
- comply with your communication preferences and with any objection you may have about the way we communicate with you;
- take appropriate steps to secure and protect your personal information from being used without permission, or illegally, and to safeguard your rights; and
- destroy your personal information in a secure way once we no longer need it.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights) if the request is legitimate.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
