VMG 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).
1. What information does Candour hold about you and how is it collected?
If you register on the Candour, your personal information (including your name, job title, company’s name, telephone, fax and mobile numbers, postal and email address) is collected by VMG. We also collect personal information from you when you contact us (by email or otherwise).
2. What we do with your personal information?
All of the personal information described above will be stored on Candour user database (unless you notify us that you no longer wish us to retain such information, in which case it will be deleted).
Candour will only use your personal information in order to contact you (for example by email, mail or telephone) for those purposes to which you have previously consented on the site.
If you do not wish to receive our newsletter, please tick the relevant box on the registration form when you register on our website. You may cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time by clicking on the link at the foot of any edition of the newsletter.
Candour 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 Candour’s relationship with its sponsors and advertisers
– Enable site audits to be performed
– Enable Candour to review, develop and improve the services which it offers
3. To whom is your personal information disclosed?
Candour will share your personal information with the other members of its group and (provided that you have not ticked the opt-out box on the registration form) will make your name and postal address available to reputable third parties so that they can send you details of their products and services.
In supplying Candour with your personal information, you agree that Candour 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 Candour’s assets or stock or our website services whether by merger, acquisition, reorganisation or otherwise. Candour will not otherwise disclose your personal information to any third parties.
4. 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. Candour will also share your personal information with members of its group which are located overseas. By registering on the Candour site and communicating with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of your personal information in this way.
6. How do we protect your information?
Candour is committed to data security. If you subscribe to access our premium content (and, accordingly, enter payment details), Candour offers the use of a secure server. The secure server software encrypts all information which you input before it is sent to Candour. Candour 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, Candour cannot guarantee the safety of any personal information which is transmitted to us on-line.
