We have updated our User/Subscription Privacy Notice to reflect changes we’ve made to strengthen your privacy rights. This is our commitment to how we use your data and keep it safe. We have made changes to address the new standards introduced by the European data protection law - known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
What is Personal Information?
Personal Information is information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, company and job title.
We do not consider personal information to include information that has been anonymised or aggregated so that it can no longer be used to identify a specific natural person, whether in combination with other information or otherwise.
We collect personal information from you when you subscribe to our magazines, websites or newsletters.
How we use your personal (subscription) information?
We use your personal information to send you the information, magazines and newsletters that you have specifically requested. We will also use your details to contact you about your subscription and provide you with personalised advertising and marketing.
It is your choice how we use your personal information
