1. Introduction

Consumer and Media Intelligence Ltd. (CMI) is committed to protecting your privacy and security. From time to time we may invite you to supply personal information in order for us to provide you with services (such as access to subscriber-only services and email newsletters).

In order to deliver such services, we will need to process and store your personal information and may need to transfer it to the relevant partner(s), to affiliates of CMI for processing both inside and outside the European Economic Area (EEA). By submitting your personal information, you consent to such processing and transfers in connection with such orders, offers or services and for any other purposes to which you consent at the time you provide the information or as provided in this privacy policy.

2. What information does CMI hold about you and how is it collected?

If you register on the IoT World Website, your personal information (including your name, job title, company’s name, telephone, fax and mobile numbers, postal and email address) is collected by CMI.

In common with many other on-line services, if you have registered on the IoT World Website, we may use “Cookies” to store and sometimes track information about you, but only on an anonymous basis. A cookie is a small amount of data sent from the server which is stored on your PC’s hard drive. You can set your browser to refuse cookies or ask your browser to show you where cookies have been set up. Certain services are only activated by the presence of a cookie and, if you choose to reject the cookie, a particular on-line feature may not be available to you.

3. What CMI do with your personal information?

All of the personal information described above will be stored on CMI user database (unless you notify us that you no longer wish us to retain such information, in which case it will be deleted).

CMI will only use your personal information in order to contact you (for example by email) for those purposes to which you have previously consented on the site. You may cancel your subscription to CMI’s newsletter at any time by clicking on the link at the foot of any edition of the newsletter.

Consumer and Media Intelligence will also use the information which you provide in aggregate form (i.e. so that no individual users are identifiable) to determine demographic profiles and browsing patterns in order to:

– Develop marketing profiles and assist strategic development
– Manage CMI’s relationship with its sponsors and advertisers
– Enable site audits to be performed
– Enable CMI to review, develop and improve the services which it offers

4. To whom is your personal information disclosed?

In supplying CMI with your personal information, you agree that CMI may transfer that information (to the extent that it is still held on our database at the relevant time) to a third party who acquires all or substantially all or CMI’s assets or stock or our website services whether by merger, acquisition, reorganisation or otherwise. CMI will not otherwise disclose your personal information to any third parties.

5. Transfers of personal information overseas

As the internet is a global environment, using the internet to collect and process personal information necessarily involves the transmission of that information worldwide. CMI may also share your personal information with it’s partners which may be located overseas. By registering on the CMI site and communicating with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of your personal information in this way.

6. When does this Privacy Policy not apply?

This Privacy Policy only applies to the collection and use of data by CMI. It does not cover third party sites to which we provide links. Those sites may have their own privacy policies.

7. How do we protect your information?

CMI takes steps to guard against unauthorised access to the personal information of the users of its site. Although it makes every effort to create a secure environment for your personal information, CMI cannot guarantee the safety of any personal information which is transmitted to us on-line.
