3. How we Collect and Use (Process) Your Personal Information
As with other companies, we collect personal data through various channels including, but not limited to, the following channels:
- Social media communications
- Search engine marketing (SEO/PPC/affiliates)
- Offline marketing campaigns linked to ISG websites
- Business cards
- Face to face meetings (during the conducting of business)
- We may in the future use email marketing campaigns and communications (to individuals who have already consented to receive them)
Mostly, the personal data we collect is limited to the kinds of information that can be found on a business card: first name, last name, job title, employer name, work address, work email, and work phone number. In some instances, but only when appropriate, we may ask you for other specific personal data, although this will always be optional (for example, dietary requirements in advance of an event, or your hobbies and interests).
We will store your details on KMS, which is Cast’s CRM database, in accordance with our marketing data storage and retention policy (see section 8).
We will use various methods to record your consent, which may in the future include the use of a ‘consent preference centre’ available via buttons on pages of our websites. This would enable you to record your consent for us to send you marketing content, based on optional preferences that you control.
How we use your personal information:
If you consent, we will send you free of charge marketing content which relates to any preferences which you may have stated, until you tell us not to. You can change your preferences or remove your consent at any time by e-mailing, telephoning or writing to us. In the future, we hope to offer you the opportunity to do any or all of this by using a ‘consent preference centre’.
Events, news, insights and product and services information:
From time to time, Cast hosts events. These include in-person conferences, meetings or sessions we arrange during industry events. We also publish news, insights and information on our services. If you have given your consent to receive information about events, news, insights or our services, we will send you information in line with your stated preferences, free of charge, until you tell us not to.
We may also include forms on our website which enable you to sign up for specific events if you wish to, or download content such as insights or information about our services. Any data we collect from these specific forms will only be processed and used for purposes relating to the event or topic that the form relates to. Your consent to this will not be used as consent to send you any other unrelated marketing content, although we may also offer you an optional opportunity to consent for us to send you carefully selected marketing content that we think you might be interested in, free of charge, until you tell us not to.
Alternatively, you can contact us and specify which topics you would like us to send you information about, on an ongoing basis, until you tell us not to.
When you make an enquiry to us:
If you make an enquiry to us via our website, by email, or face-to-face (e.g. at an event), we may offer you an opportunity to consent to us storing your personal data for us to send you information relating to your enquiry, on an ongoing basis, until you tell us not to.
4. When and How We Share Information With Others
The personal information we collect from you is stored in one or more databases hosted by third parties located in the European Economic Area (EEA). These third parties do not use or have access to your personal information for any purpose other than cloud storage and retrieval, or the storage and use of postal addresses for individuals who have consented freely to receive information from us by post. The third party which we currently use is Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Subject to consent, the data shared is: name, job title, email, telephone numbers, postal address, dietary requirements, connections with Cast employees, connection with projects or future projects, marketing preferences, marketing consent status. The reason for sharing is that Microsoft hosts the software and databases that contain personal information.
5. Transferring Personal Data From the EU
Cast does not transfer data to countries that have not sought nor received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR. We will only ever do so in the future: with your consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfil a compelling legitimate interest of Cast in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms.
