AchievEE.org Privacy Policy - Updated May 23, 2018

We take your privacy seriously, and we take our responsibility to keep your data safe just as seriously. Below you’ll find our privacy policy, where we lay out exactly how we use and manage the data you share with us.

Summary

We collect your data (specifically outlined below, but generally basic information about you in a professional context, such as email, job title, company name, phone number, etc) strictly to provide you with access to our news, events and other programs. We will not share this data with anyone unless you explicitly consent to us doing so. We honor your right to privacy and will comply with your wishes to remove your data from our systems.

Our commitment to privacy

You deserve to know how we collect and use the data you provide to us, and that’s what we are providing to you on this page. This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the achievEE.org website. This notice was updated in May 2018 to reflect GDPR compliance standards.

How we use your information

We use the data you provide to us for the following purposes:

  1. To fulfil a contract, or take steps linked to a contract: in particular, in facilitating and processing transactions that take place on the achievEE, like where you purchase or enroll in a service.
  2. To provide you with access to the content and events we produce.
  3. To analyze profile or behavioral data to help us improve the information & services we offer to you.
  4. To customize our services and website where this involves the use of cookies or similar technologies – in order to provide a more personalised experience.
  5. When you register for or access content provided by outside partners we may share your contact information with them so they can reach out to you directly in the future.

We will store this information to keep you informed about other relevant information & services that may be useful to you.

We will never use or share the information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above.

Some information, such as IP and your email address, may be shared with the following third parties who help us run our website and email programs. They will only use this information to serve our needs and are prohibited from using it in any other instance. They are: Google (ad serving and website tracking), Constant Contact (email), Go To Webinar (event registration). If we partner with any platforms not listed here, we will notify you of its use and/or update our privacy policy to include the platform.

We may also share your data in the following ways:

  1. Owners or sponsors of any items or services made available to you
  2. Subcontractors and service providers who assist us in connection with the ways we use personal information (as set out above), in particular: website hosting providers; technical , marketing and analytics; security and fraud prevention services; subscription management services; payment processing services; identification verification services.
  3. For purposes which are required by law.

Marketing & Communications with your data

Where we have your consent to do so, (e.g. if you have subscribed to one of our email lists), we will send you marketing communications via email regarding information and services that we feel you will find interesting.  You always retain the right to opt-out of communications via the “unsubscribe” button at the bottom of all messages.

Consequences of failure to provide consent

Consenting to allow us to process and store your data is optional. However, failure to provide that consent will prevent us from delivering the content, events and other experiences to you as mentioned above.

The information we collect

Across our web platform and events, you will be presented with the opportunity to sign up for newsletters, purchase conference passes, submit your information to access content such as webinars, apply for eligibility at certain events and more.

The type of information collected on those pages generally includes but is not limited to:

  1. Email address
  2. Phone number
  3. Name
  4. Job title or seniority
  5. Location
  6. Company name
  7. Company type
  8. Mailing/billing address

Based on the information you provide to us, we may create or append other information to your profile in the interest of better serving you (for example, your interests). As is the case with all data we collect, this will be kept private and for our business purposes only.

How to ask us to delete your data

If you would like to unsubscribe from our communications at any time, you may do so in the footer of any of our emails. If you would like us to delete your information entirely, or request the information we store about you, please respond to any of our emails with "Delete" in the subject line. Otherwise, by continuing to interact with our emails and programs, you provide us with permission to manage and use your data as described above.

Our commitment to the security of your data

To prevent unauthorized parties from accessing your data and maintain the accuracy and cleanliness of our own data while ensuring the correct use of it, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
