- Location Data. We collect location data such as information about your device's location, which can be either precise or imprecise.

You can opt out of allowing us to collect this information either by refusing access to the information or by disabling your Location setting on your device. However, if you choose to opt-out, you may be unable to use certain aspects of the Services.

Information collected from other sources
In Short: We may collect limited data from public databases, marketing partners, and other outside sources.
To enhance our ability to provide relevant marketing, offers and services to you and update our records, we may obtain information about you from other sources, such as public databases, joint marketing partners, affiliate programs, data providers, as well as from other third parties. This information includes mailing addresses, current employer, job titles, email addresses, phone numbers, intent data (or user behaviour data), Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, social media profiles, social media URLs and custom profiles, for purposes of targeted advertising and event promotion.
2. How do we use your information?
In Short: We process your information for purposes based on legitimate business interests, the fulfilment of our contract with you, compliance with our legal obligations, and/or your consent.
We use personal information collected via our Website for a variety of business purposes described below. We process your personal information for these purposes in reliance on our legitimate business interests, in order to enter into or perform a contract with you, with your consent, and/or for compliance with our legal obligations. We indicate the specific processing grounds we rely on next to each purpose listed below.
We use the information we collect or receive:
- To deliver and facilitate the delivery of services to the user. We may use your information to provide you with the requested service.
- To respond to user inquiries/offer support to users. We may use your information to respond to your inquiries and solve any potential issues you might have with the use of our Services.
- To send you marketing and promotional communications. We and/or our third-party marketing partners may use the personal information you send to us for our marketing purposes if this is in accordance with your marketing preferences. For example, when you express an interest in obtaining information about us or our Website, subscribe to marketing, or otherwise contact us, we will collect personal information from you. You can opt out of our marketing emails at any time (see the "What are your privacy rights" below).
- Deliver targeted advertising to you. We may use your information to develop and display personalised content and advertising (and work with third parties who do so) tailored to your interests and/or location and to measure its effectiveness.
Additionally, as a network-driven business, we have a legitimate interest in providing content value in return for engagement by both clients and interested parties. They actively engage with our content and benefit from it. We therefore share identifiable data with our network for the purpose of value creation for both interested parties. For example, if you attend an event, it is in our legitimate interest to share your individual data with the sponsor, if we deem it relevant and of value to both sides.
3. Will your information be shared with anyone?
In Short: We only share information with your consent, to comply with laws, to provide you with services, to protect your rights, or to fulfil business obligations.
We may process or share your data that we hold based on the following legal basis:
- Consent: We may process your data if you have given us specific consent to use your personal information for a specific purpose.
- Legitimate Interests: We may process your data when it is reasonably necessary to achieve our legitimate business interests.
- Performance of a Contract: Where we have entered into a contract with you, we may process your personal information to fulfil the terms of our contract.
- Legal Obligations: We may disclose your information where we are legally required to do so in order to comply with applicable law, governmental requests, a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process, such as in response to a court order or a subpoena (including in response to public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements).
- Vital Interests: We may disclose your information where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding potential violations of our policies, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person and illegal activities, or as evidence in litigation in which we are involved.
More specifically, we may need to process your data or share your personal information in the following situations:
- Business Transfers: We may share or transfer your information in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company.
5. Is your information transferred internationally?
In Short: We may transfer, store, and process your information in countries other than your own.
If you are accessing our Website from outside, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed by us in our facilities and by those third parties with whom we may share your personal information (see "Will your information be shared with anyone?" above), in and other countries.
If you are a resident in the European Economic Area (EEA) or United Kingdom (UK), then these countries may not necessarily have data protection laws or other similar laws as comprehensive as those in your country. We will, however, take all necessary measures to protect your personal information in accordance with this privacy notice and applicable law.
We will always take steps to ensure that any international transfer of information is carefully managed to protect your rights and interests:
- We will only transfer your personal data to countries recognised as providing an adequate level of legal protection or where we can be satisfied those alternative arrangements are in place to protect your privacy rights.
- Transfers to service providers and other third parties will always be protected by contractual commitments and further assurances, where appropriate.
- Any requests for information we receive from law enforcement or regulators will be carefully checked before personal data is disclosed.
- We have listed below the systems we use, and where we send data outside of the UK and on what basis we do so:
- XERO - Data is transferred outside of the UK to the United States
- Loxo - Data is transferred outside of the UK to various international locations
- Rocket Reach - Data is transferred outside of the UK to the United States
- Microsoft 365 - Data is transferred outside of the UK to the United States
- Google Analytics – Data is not transferred outside of the European Economic Area.
6. How long do we keep your information?
In Short: We keep your information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Privacy Notice unless otherwise required by law.
We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements). No purpose in this notice will require us to keep your personal information for longer than 2 years. We check our Data Retention Policy regularly to ensure we maintain a legitimate reason for retaining your data.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize such information, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
7. How do we keep your information safe?
In Short: We aim to protect your personal information through a system of organisational and technical security measures.
We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, despite our safeguards and efforts to secure your information, no electronic transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorised third parties will not be able to defeat our security, and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, transmission of personal information to and from our Website is at your own risk. You should only access the Website within a secure environment.
In the unlikely event of a breach of our security, we will inform the relevant regulatory body within 72 hours of the breach being discovered. If your personal data were involved in the breach, we shall also inform you.
8. What are your privacy rights?
In Short: You may review, change, or terminate your account at any time.
You have certain rights as an individual, which you can exercise in relation to the personal data we hold about you. If you request to exercise any of your rights, we reserve the right to ask you for proof of your identity. We aim to acknowledge your request as soon as possible and address your query within one month from your request.
The right to access
You are entitled to a confirmation of whether we are processing your data, a copy of your data, and information about purposes of processing, who we disclose it to, whether we transfer it abroad and how we protect it, how long we keep it for, what rights you have, where we got your data from and how you can make a complaint.
The right to rectification
If you believe the personal data we hold about you is inaccurate or incomplete, you can request for it to be rectified.
The right to erasure
You have the right to ask for the erasure of your data if you withdraw your consent, terminate a contract with us, or believe the personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. In that case, you may request that your data be deleted. However, this will need to be balanced against other factors; for example, certain regulatory obligations may mean we cannot comply with your request.
The right to restriction of processing
You can ask us to restrict (i.e. keep but not use) your personal data, but only where:
- Its accuracy is contested, to allow us to verify its accuracy; or
- The processing is unlawful, but you do not want it erased; or
- It is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected, but we still need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or
- You have exercised the right to object, and verification of overriding grounds is pending.
- We can continue to use your personal data following a request for restriction, where we have your consent; to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or protect the rights of another natural or legal person.
The right to data portability
If we collected your personal data under a contract or your consent, you could request us to transfer your personal data to provide it to another third party of your choice.
The right to object
You have the right to object at any time to processing of your personal data where processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or the exercise of an official authority vested in the controller. You may also object where the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms, where you are a child.
The right to withdraw consent
If we process your personal data under your consent, you can withdraw it at any time. You can contact us at email@example.com. We do not have to comply with a request where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.
If you are a resident in the UK and believe we are unlawfully processing your personal information, you also have the right to complain to the UK Information Commissioner's Office.
If you are a resident in the EEA and you believe we are unlawfully processing your personal information, you have the right to complain to your local data protection supervisory authority. You can find their contact details here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm.
If you are a resident in Switzerland, the contact details for the data protection authorities are available here: https://www.edoeb.admin.ch/edoeb/en/home.html.

9. Controls for do-not-track features
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track ("DNT") feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. At this stage no uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this privacy notice.

In Short: Yes, if you are a resident of California, you are granted specific rights regarding access to your personal information.
