Personal data:

Identify Group Ltd. collects personal data about you to help in the event booking process. Standard examples of personal data include name, address, email address, telephone numbers  included when completing any online registration forms (though this list is not exhaustive). 

You agree that we may collect, use, store, maintain, transfer and delete your personal data.

We collect and process sensitive personal data only so far as is necessary to ensure that we conform to legal requirements (e.g. under the equality of opportunity laws).

Where necessary, we may pass data to third parties that help us to process data and to prospective employers or clients for the purpose of recruitment. Also, we may share aggregate detail (collated research material with all personal identification(s) removed) with third parties. We do not disclose individual names or any identifying information without your express consent unless the law, statutes or court orders require such information be released.

Safeguarding data:

When you provide personal data to this or any of our group websites, it is secured on servers located in the UK that are protected by our own privacy policy.  Identify Group takes reasonable measures to protect your data from misuse, loss, or other unauthorised use, and we make sure to remove your personal data after it is no longer required for its intended purposes. However, Identify Group cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or unauthorised use will never occur (e.g., that someone will not overcome our security measures), and makes no representations or warranties to this effect.[G8] 

Only recruiting staff of Identify Group Ltd companies may directly access any personal data, provided through registration, by you.

Transfer of data across and outside the European Economic Area (EEA):

Any data passed onto Identify Group and its subsidiaries may be transferred to countries that are not part of the EEA.  These countries may have differing, lesser or no laws protecting the use of personal data in the above ways. Agreeing to this privacy policy means consenting to Identify Group companies’ transferal of your personal data within Identify Group Ltd. and its clients in order for us to deliver the quality service we pride ourselves on, and that some of these countries may fall under the categories above.
