Types of Data and Collection Methods and Retention Periods

Through the site, we receive data that you actively submit as well as data that we track:

Actively Submitted Data: When you request information, subscribe for a service, register as a user, respond to an online survey or otherwise actively send us data, we usually collect data such as your name, email address(es), mailing address(es), telephone number(s), and certain information related to the business you represent. In each such instance, you will know what data we collect through the site, because you actively submit it.

Passively Tracked Data: When you visit the site, we also passively track information on your computer and Internet connection, such as the IP address of your computer and/or Internet service provider, the date and time you access our web sites, the Internet address of web sites from which you link to our site, the computer technology you are using and your movements and preferences on our site. We use technology that many other web sites employ, including, without limitation, “cookies” or small data files stored on your computer’s hard drive, to collect information such as the aforementioned. In some instances, we also use cookies to collect information in connection with future visits from that site, to recognize you as a previous visitor and to track your activity at the site. You do not need to have cookies turned on to participate in our surveys or to visit our site. You can refuse cookies by turning them off on your browser.

Combinations: Unless you also actively submit personal information such as your name or address, passively tracked data does not typically allow us to identify you personally. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we reserve the right to combine passively tracked data with personal data that you actively submit. We will store your personal data for as long as is necessary to address your requests or as long as you remain an active user of our site and for three (3) years after this.

Where we process your data for marketing purposes or with your consent, we will process the data until you ask us to stop the processing. We may process your personal data for an additional period of time after you request us to cease the processing insofar as we are required to further store your data by applicable regulations. We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your data so that we can respect your request in future.

Collection Purposes, Use of Data

We collect passively tracked data primarily for purposes of administering, protecting and improving our site and our systems, to better understand the preferences of our site visitors, to identify server issues, to compile aggregated statistics about site usage, and to help personalize your experience of our site. This processing relies on our legitimate interest in conducting our business and improving our web site and the products and services we offer. 

We collect actively submitted data primarily for two purposes: Firstly, for the purpose for which you originally sent us the data (e.g., to mail information to you or sign you up for a training course); this processing relies on our legitimate interest in appropriately answer to the requests we receive from our clients or from the users of our site. Two, for purposes of informing you about products and services; this processing relies on your consent, although you can withdraw your consent or opt out of receiving marketing email as explained below.


Whenever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw it, although we may have other legal grounds for processing your data for other purposes. In some cases, we are able to send you direct marketing without your consent, where we rely on our legitimate interests. You may also opt out of receiving additional information or request that we not share your information either with our affiliates or other third parties. If you opt-out under such circumstances, we will respect your decision. To optout of receiving further commercial email or to unsubscribe from services, please contact us at

In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement, or where we are using the data for direct marketing). 

Upon appropriate request we will usually be glad to address your exercise of your rights, but we reserve the right to use information obtained previously to verify your identity. Please also note that these rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, or if you ask as to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping. 

Furthermore, if you have unresolved concerns, you have the right to complain to an EU data protection supervision authority where you live, work or where you believe a breach may have occurred.
