Sharing Data with Trusted Third Parties / External Suppliers in the Events Industry
Due to the nature of our business and the size of our databases, it is not practical for us to ask every individual for his/her consent which we fell would be more of a nuisance. We have assessed our and our clients’ business interests in carrying out marketing activities and we have carefully considered the impact the collection and use of personal data could potentially have on individuals’ rights. Our databases contain business data, which is used to promote business in the UK and such activities are unlikely to affect the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals concerned. We have therefore concluded that the most appropriate lawful ground for the processing of your personal is our and our client’s legitimate interests
We only share your personal data as necessary for any third party to provide the services as requested or as needed on our behalf. These third parties are subject to strict data processing terms and conditions and are prohibited from utilising, sharing or retaining your personal data for any purpose, other than as they have been specifically contracted for (or without your consent).
When we work with third party operators, such as venues, our partner destination management companies, sub-contractors, etc. we ensure that personal information in our possession is provided to them only with our knowledge and subject to legally binding agreements requiring them to keep such information confidential and secure.
