- verify the personal data we hold for you (e.g. to check your postal address is correct)
- enhance the content and relevance of the advertising we provide to you.
We may also research publicly available sources (e.g. websites and LinkedIn) and use external suppliers, to identify business contacts who are likely to be interested in the products and services we have to offer. We will only collect the minimal amount of information required for this purpose (e.g. name, job title, company and contact details) and when we contact you we will always provide you with an easy way to object to us continuing to retain your personal data.

The lawful bases we rely on
Under the GDPR there are six lawful bases under which organisations can collect, use and store personal data. We have identified four which we rely upon for our business activities: Consent, Contractual, Legitimate Interests and Legal Obligation.
Contractual – in many circumstances we rely on the lawful basis of “performance of a contract”, this enables us to respond to you when you express an interest in our products and services and to fulfil any requests.
Consent – in some circumstances we rely on your specific consent, whereby you actively agree and “opt-in”. We will always make it clear how you can withdraw your consent at any time, this can be done via email and telephone. The contact details can be found on our contact page or on any correspondence we send.
Legal Obligation – there will be circumstances under which we are legally obliged to hold your personal data or required to disclose it to a third party by law.
Legitimate Interests – for some of our activities we rely on our legitimate business interests to collect and use your personal data. In such cases, we have balanced our interests with yours and do not believe these activities will have a negative impact on your privacy rights and freedoms. We specifically rely on Legitimate Interests to:
- manage specific aspects of our events.
- send you marketing communications about our products and services via post, phone, or email.
- send you marketing communications related to other companies’ products and services.
- personalise the marketing content we provide you.
- share your contact details with a named sponsor, when you access specific sponsored content.
- undertake business sales and advertising activities
- customise the content you see on our websites.
You can always object to our marketing messages, again please find contact details on the contact page or any correspondence.
If you wish to object to our reliance on Legitimate Interests for any other purpose please use our contact page.
How we use your personal data
If you subscribe to receive one of our magazines, we will use the details you provide us to send you the magazine, to process your payment details, to provide you access to any digital content that’s part of your subscription, to respond to any queries you may have and to contact you with information relating to your subscription (e.g. to confirm your subscription has started, to confirm if your subscription is due to expire, to send you password reminder emails, to engage with you again if your subscription has lapsed, stopped or to offer other magazine trials, or to notify you of any changes to the service).
Creating an online account with one of our websites gives you access to further functionality, features, and content. You can create an online account directly when you register or subscribe. The personal details we collect when you create an online account will include your name, email address, Payment details, username, and password. We also collect the IP address you are using to access our website to enable us to provide IP-based subscriptions and to detect and prevent any account misuse.
Corporate subscriptions operate by providing access to our website based on the domain name of the email address given when creating a user account, or based on detecting the IP address used to access our website. This information would have been shared with us by the organisation who requested the corporate subscription.
During the registration process, you may provide us with further details about yourself, such as your job title and the industry sector you work in. We use these details, combined with other information you have shared with us, to help tailor the content and advertising you see to be more relevant to you, to personalise the marketing messages we send to you and to provide context to our research and analysis of how our websites are used.
Some of our brands will organise events to provide the latest information, insight and opinions from a wide range of industry sectors. These events can be delivered face-to-face at a physical venue or virtually through an online platform either in real time or on demand.
We will use the personal details you provide us when you register to attend an event so we know who’s attending and to allow access. When attending a virtual event, the name you provided during the registration process may be displayed to all other attendees. If you are making a group booking or booking on someone’s behalf, please ensure you have their permission to share their name and contact details with us.
With your permission, we may share some of your contact details with our event sponsors, speakers or exhibitors to be used for their direct marketing activities. If you attend a virtual event, we may share further behavioural information with an event sponsor. This will be limited to whether you visited the sponsor’s virtual booth, watched one of their videos, or downloaded some of their information documents.
Photographs and video footage may be taken at our events and used in post-event publicity or future promotional material. If you don’t want to be captured in any photos or video footage, please let the photographer know on the day of the event. You can also email us if you believe you have been included in a photograph or video footage and object to it being used for post-event publicity or future promotional material.
For some of our events, you may be asked for your badge to be scanned by our seminar hosts, sponsors and exhibitors. This allows us to confirm who attended a seminar and provides a way for our sponsors and exhibitors to send you further information about the event, using the details you provided us when you registered. Privacy notices will be displayed on the day of the event to inform you of this activity. If you do not wish for your details to be shared in this way, then please feel free to object to your badge from being scanned.
We will also share the delegate list with the venue for fire regulation and safety purposes.
Our New Perspective Media brands often provide sponsored content, such as webinars, expert reports, whitepapers, surveys or events. We collect basic work contact details and other information about your company and job role.
When accessing specific content that has been sponsored by another organisation, we will also ask you to complete a short form requesting your permission to share your details with the sponsor. We will share basic work contact details and some of the other information you provided when you created your account or collected subsequently when accessing the specific content. We will always provide a link to the sponsor’s full privacy notice so you are fully aware of how they will process your personal data.
Sharing your details with the content sponsor is always your choice and you will always be provided with a clear opportunity to indicate if you would prefer us not to share this information.
When we collect your personal data, we will include a specific notice to inform you and give you choices about future direct marketing communications from us.
We will only send you direct marketing communications when you have either:
- Provided your consent (e.g. ticked a box or clicked a “button” to submit a form)
- A verbal yes on sales call
- Where we believe we can demonstrate a legitimate business interest and have balanced this with your interests and privacy.
It is always your choice, and you can stop receiving direct marketing communications from us at any time. We will provide a clear and easy way to do this on any communication you receive. Data for telemarketing will be used for contact if you have provided permission to contact you, and you agree that this new permission overrides historic TPS registrations.
For electronic marketing communications (via email, sms and phone) we adhere to the rules of the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR).
When you provide us with your personal details for a particular service, we may also share some of these details with a 3rd party for their sales and marketing activities. We will only do this if you have given us your permission to share your details for this purpose. You will always be provided with a clear and easy way to opt-out. For example, we may ask for your permission to share your details with a 3rd party when you enter a prize draw, when you download a product, or when you register for an event.
