We collect, use, and are responsible for certain personal information about you. When we do so we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which applies across the European Union and the United Kingdom and we are responsible as ‘controller’ of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.
We collect personal information about you when you access our website, register with us, and contact us via our website.
We collect this personal information from you either directly, such as when you register with us or contact us via our website, or indirectly, such as your browsing activity while on our website (see ‘Cookies’ below).
The personal information we collect about you depends on the particular activities carried out through our website. This information may include:
We use this personal information to:
This website is not intended for use by children and we do not knowingly collect or use personal information relating to children.
We only retain collected information for as long as necessary to provide you with your requested service. What data we store, we’ll protect within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
We don’t share any personally identifying information publicly or with third-parties, except when required to by law.
Our website may link to external sites that are not operated by us. Please be aware that we have no control over the content and practices of these sites, and cannot accept responsibility or liability for their respective privacy policies.
You are free to refuse our request for your personal information, with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired services.
When we use your personal information, we are required to have a legal basis for doing so. There are various different legal bases on which we may rely, depending on what personal information we process and why.
The legal bases we may rely on include:
We will share personal information with law enforcement or other authorities if required by applicable law.
We do not share your personal information with any third party, so you will not be contacted by anyone outside of mediaforgrowth.
We require you to provide your name and/or email address to enable us to contact you once you have made an enquiry via our website and/or to be able to add you to our mailing list. We also ask for your company details to be able to tailor our services accordingly. We will inform you at the point of collecting information from you, whether you are required to provide the information to us.
If you submitted a startup form with the intent to raise funding and connect with investors, we may transfer your personal information to our members outside of the United Kingdom (UK) and European Economic Area (EEA) located, for example, in India, Mexico, Singapore, and the United States of America, in order to connect you with more relevant expertise.
Such countries may not have the same data protection laws as the UK and EEA. While the European Commission has not given a formal decision that such countries provide an adequate level of data protection similar to those which apply in the UK and EEA, any transfer of your personal information will be subject to the GDPR.
We will not otherwise transfer your personal data outside of the EEA or to any organisation (or subordinate bodies) governed by public international law or which is set up under any agreement between two or more countries.
If you would like further information please contact us at email@example.com
We would like to send you information about our services, which may be of interest to you. Where we have your consent or it is in our legitimate interests to do so, we may do this by email.
We will only ask whether you would like us to send you marketing messages when you tick the relevant boxes when you complete our online enquiry forms.
If you have previously agreed to being contacted in this way, you can unsubscribe at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. It may take up to 5 working days for this to take place. For more information on your rights in relation to marketing, see ‘Your rights’ below.
Under the GDPR you have a number of important rights free of charge. In summary, those include rights to:
For further information on each of those rights, including the circumstances in which they apply, see the Guidance from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on individuals rights under the General Data Protection Regulation.
If you would like to exercise any of those rights, please:
We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it.
Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
We hope that we can resolve any query or concern you raise about our use of your information.
The GDPR also gives you the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in a European Economic Area state or in the United Kingdom if you work, normally live, or if any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred in the relevant state. The supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner who may be contacted at https://ico.org.uk/concerns/ or telephone: 0303 123 1113.
Please contact email@example.com if you have any questions about this privacy notice or the information we hold about you.
