The primary purpose of the Placecube website, placecube.com, is as a resource to help visitors learn more about our organisation.
We take care to protect the privacy of customers and users of the site and, if we do ask you to provide certain information, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
You are entitled to know whether we hold personal data about you and, if we do, to have access to that personal data and request that it be corrected if it is inaccurate. You can also choose to manage the marketing communications you receive by using opt-out mechanisms in emails we send to you. In such cases, we will retain the minimum personal data necessary to record that you opted out, in order to avoid contacting you again.
If you have submitted personal information through this website and wish us to cease using it for the purposes submitted, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This policy sets out how we collect and process information about visitors to placecube.com.
How do we collect information from you?
We collect information at placecube.com in two ways:
- information which is collected and stored during normal use of the site, such as your IP address and the pages you visited
- when you opt to submit personal information, in order for us to send you further information or email alerts; when you request to view certain content, such as white papers, or research; when you apply for a job; or when you register for an event, conference or webinar.
What information do we collect?
The information we might collect and process includes:
- Information about your computer, such as your IP address, operating system and browser type.
- Details of your visits to our website, the pages you view and resources you access or download. Please see our section on Google Analytics below and our separate Cookies section for more information.
- Information that you choose to provide by filling in a form on our website, including subscribing to newsletters and alerts, registering for a conference, or requesting content, such as a white paper.
- If you contact us with an enquiry, or for information, we may keep a record of that correspondence
- We may ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.
When this information relates to or identifies you, it is treated as ‘personal data’.
How is the information used and why is it being collected?
The information which we collect during normal use of the site is used for system administration, to filter traffic, to look up user domains and to report on and analyse how parts of the site are used. Such use does not result in any personally identifiable data being collected or stored.
Please see the next section entitled Cookies for more information.
We use personal data to provide you with information you request, to process requests for contact or consultation, and for other purposes which we would describe to you at the point where it is collected, or which will be subsequent to your request. For example:
- To fulfil your requests for more information, white papers, articles, alerts, newsletters or other content. Pages that collect this type of information may provide further information as to why your data is needed and how it will be used.
- For surveys or research questionnaires.
- To contact you for marketing purposes where you have agreed to this.
Who will the information be shared with?
In connection with any application, request or enquiry you make, your information will be passed directly to the relevant person or team with our organisation and nowhere else.
By submitting your personal information through this website, you are consenting to it being processed in the manner described above.
We will not share your personal information with any third party, outside of Placecube, that intends to use it for direct marketing purposes, unless we have specifically informed you and you have given us specific permission to do this.
We may use third parties, like service providers, agents or contractors to provide support and administration assistance for the internal operations of our websites, event registration systems, applications and online advertisements.
These third parties may come into contact with your personal information in the course of providing their services to us. They must provide equivalent levels of security for your personal information as Placecube and, where required, are bound by a legal agreement to keep your personal information private, secure and to process it only on the specific instructions of Placecube.
Where might you transfer my information outside the UK?
Most of our systems that would store your information are based in the UK or the European Economic Area. If we need to transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area, we will ensure that such transfers are compliant with the GDPR. Appropriate measures will be put in place to keep your personal data secure.
How long do you keep hold of my information?
Placecube has data policies which mandate how long records, including personal data, must be retained. Retention periods are determined by legislation and business requirements. In most cases we will hold your data for 3 years after last contact, unless a legal or regulatory obligation requires that we hold this data for a superseding period of time.
All information will be kept securely on our systems. All personal data will be held in accordance with the Placecube data policies.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
