Additional Information for EU Residents
Use of private information policy (GDPR)
Last updated: 14 August 2018
We respect the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and this policy explains how we collect and treat any information you give us.
Our policy covers:
- Why we value your privacy
- How we collect information
- What information we hold
- Where we store your information
- What we use your information for
- Who has access to information about you
- The steps we take to keep your information private
- How to complain
- Changes to the policy
Why we value your privacy
We value your privacy as much as we do our own, so we’re committed to keeping your personal and business information safe. We’re uncomfortable with the information companies, governments, and other organisations keep on file, so we ask for only the bare minimum from our customers. We’ll never use your personal information for any reason other than why you gave it, and we’ll never give anyone access to it unless we’re forced to by law.
How we collect information
What information we hold
When you contact us by email or through our website, we collect your name, email address, phone number and the company you work for, if you’ve given us that. When you register for a seminar, we collect your name, email address, phone number, and a billing address. If you do business with us, we also collect your business name and payment details and keep records of the invoices we send you and the payments you make. All purchases are processed by CardKnox, our ecommerce platform and we never have access to your credit card information.
Where we store your information
When you contact us by email or through our website, we store your your information in Insightly, our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software. If you sign up for a newsletter, we store your email address in Campaigner, which is the marketing platform we prefer. When you buy something, your information is stored in CardKnox, our ecommerce platform, and if we do business, we store your information in our accounts software, QuickBooks. We chose these systems partly for their commitment to security.
What we use your information for
We occasionally use your contact information to send you details of our products and services. When we do, you have the option to unsubscribe from these communications and we won’t send them to you again. We might also email or phone you about our products and services, but if you tell us not to, we won’t get in touch again. We will use your information to send you invoices, statements, or reminders. When we store information in our own systems, only the people who need it have access. Our management team have access to everything you’ve provided, but individual employees have access to only what they need to do their job.
The steps we take to keep your information private
Where we store your information in third-party services, we restrict access only to people who need it. The computers we use are all protected by a passcode or fingerprint access. These computers ask for authentication whenever they’re started or after 5 minutes of inactivity. Our mobile devices are also protected by a fingerprint or facial recognition.
How to complain
We take complaints very seriously. If you’ve any reason to complain about the ways we handle your privacy, please contact privacy@SeminarsforEngineers.com or by phone on +1-973-287-4900.
