PS8 Ltd is what’s known as the ‘controller’ of the personal data you provide to us. We collect basic business personal data about you; your name, company name, company address, company telephone number, company email address and your bank details if you enter a contract with us. We will also collect data on what parts of our service interest you.
We collect your personal data in connection with specific activities, such as event updates, newsletter requests, registration for exhibitions and events, or information you provide at public events.
The information is needed to fulfil your request or to enable us to provide you with a more personalised service (for example, keeping you up to date with industry events, letting you know about DIT grants).
We collect your personal information in a number of ways:
Sometimes, with your consent, we will process your personal data to provide you with information about our work or our activities that you have requested or are expecting.
On other occasions, we may process personal data when we need to do this to fulfil a contract (for example, if you have requested a quote for stand design or signed up for an event).
We also process your data when it is in our legitimate interests to do this and when these interests do not override your rights. Those legitimate interests include providing you with information on upcoming events and exhibitions which are relevant to your business. Please see the section on 'Legitimate Interest' for more information.
We only disclose information to third parties or individuals when obliged to by law, for purposes of national security, taxation and criminal investigations and the following:
We will never sell or rent your personal information to other organisations.
We will continue to hold client’s details (those who have entered a contract with us) unless instructed to delete your record. All other contacts will remain on our database for 8 years from the date of this policy (April 2018) after which we will email you to check you would like to continue hearing from us.
Click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any marketing email or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to ask to be removed from our database.
Broadly speaking Legitimate Interests means that we can process your personal information if:
We will carefully consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights before contacting you with emails pertaining to our legitimate business interests of promoting our events and exhibitions within the food and drink sector.
We generally use legitimate interests as an approach for our direct marketing and newsletters.
The following are some examples of when and why we would use our legitimate interests as an approach to market our events and exhibitions.
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under data protection and any other relevant law. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent).
New data protection law, starting in May 2018, gives everyone a number of very important rights. These are:
