What data we need

The basic personal data we collect about you does include: name, job title, telephone number(s), email and business address.
Why we need it
We need to know basic personal data in order to provide you with the consultancy services you have engaged us to provide, and to assert our right to be recompensed in return for these services, as per the services agreement or contract we have with you. If you do not provide this information we will be unable to provide the consultancy services you have requested.
We will also collect your personal data for marketing activities, and to provide you with information about our products and services. Specifically, these marketing activities will include: email marketing, newsletters, press releases, telephone sales, event invitations, product launches, product and services updates and direct mail.
These marketing communications may be transmitted via of telephone, email or post. Please note that where marketing information is transmitted to you via email then your data will be shared to a secure third party web-based marketing automation application, Marketo.

We will not collect any personal data from you that we do not need in order to provide the above mentioned activities.

How long we keep it

Personal data collected and processed solely for marketing activities will be kept until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive marketing communications.
