How and why personal information is used

If you have made an enquiry about us or our products or services, either online or over the phone, your personal information will be used and stored to respond to the enquiry or to take other steps at your request, prior to you entering into a contract with us. Where one of our sales representatives speaks to you over the phone, the calls are recorded for training and monitoring purposes… and for on occasion when announced for editorial purposes.

If your professional personal information is relevant to our products and is freely available through public sources, such as a website related to your work or profession, listed directories, press releases, industry publications, or if you provide it to us, to the extent permitted by applicable data protection laws, we may use such personal information in the products we provide to customers, for example in subscription products, research, industry analysis and insights.

If you make an enquiry or engage us to provide consulting services or research/analysis, we will collect information such as your name, country, job title, company information or academic affiliation, postal address, e-mail address and telephone number. We will use this information to respond to the enquiry or to fulfil consulting services.

International transfer of personal information

Due to the international nature of business and the technologies required, personal information may be accessed by our colleagues and third-party service providers from locations all around the world whose data protection laws may not be as extensive as those in regions such as the European Union. We put in place appropriate protection to make sure your personal information remains adequately protected and is treated in line with this policy and applicable data protection laws.

We may share your personal information with third parties who assist in providing our products and services and administering our business. These include IT and marketing technology host suppliers, web and data hosting providers,  sales platform providers, communication tool providers. Personal information will only be shared with third parties if and to the extent it is necessary for them to provide our products and services to you.

We may share your professional information with trusted partner organisations for their marketing purposes in accordance with local data protection laws and where required.

How long information is kept

We will only retain personal information for as long as is necessary and as permitted by applicable laws. We will retain personal information while we are using it, as described in the section above. We may continue to retain it after we have ceased such uses for certain legitimate business purposes.

For example, if you have opted out of marketing communications from us, we will retain limited details about you to ensure we can honour your opt-out request. We may also continue to retain your personal information to meet our legal requirements or to defend or exercise our legal rights.

The length of time for which we will retain your personal information will depend on the purposes for which we are required to retain it. After we no longer need to retain your personal information, it will be deleted or securely destroyed.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
