Privacy


We want to keep you informed about our campaign, while remaining totally committed to protecting your privacy and data. This privacy policy applies where we are acting as the data controller with respect to the personal data of subscribers to www.thisismarketing.co.uk.

We use the information that we collect about you in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2018 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003. 

Our Privacy Policy sets out how we collect, manage and use your data, so you have clear expectations.

HOW DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION ABOUT YOU? 

We collect the information we need directly from you. That way, you know what we have, when you have given it and we can be sure you’ve provided us with the most accurate and up to date information. At times we may ask you for data; this can happen in the following events:

  • When you subscribe to the campaign
  • When you contact us for any reason
  • If you complete an online form
  • If you provide us with your business card
  • If you enter a competition
  • If you visit our website

 WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT? 

The information we collect about you may vary based on what area of the campaign you engage with.  Typically we need:

  • Your name, job title and address so we know who you are 
  • Your telephone number and email address so that we can keep in touch with you about the campaign
  • We only collect information about you that we need to deliver the campaign. We respect your privacy and we try to minimise what we do collect.
  • We may gather information when you visit our website, such as which pages you visit or how long you spend reading a particular page. This data helps us to improve your online experience.
  • We collect information about your personal opinions and preferences as part of our campaign research - this is purely to ensure the campaign results are as effective as possible.

We keep a record of the communications we send you, and may even track whether you receive or open them so we can make sure we are sending you the most relevant information.

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.

THIRD PARTIES 

We will not share any of your personal details with any third party without your explicit consent. This will only be done if we believe the opportunity is of benefit to you, or for legal reasons allowed by law.

The third-party providers used by us to fulfil our promise to you will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. These providers are carefully selected professional contractors (such as mailing, research and website suppliers) who help us deliver the campaign.  We have agreements in place with any providers we may use to ensure that your data is secure at all times, and cannot be accessed or used for any other purpose.

GIVING YOU CONTROL

Unless you ask us not to, we will tell you about our campaign. You can opt out of any of these communications at any time.  Every time we communicate with you we will tell you how to do this.

HOW WE KEEP YOUR DATA SAFE 

We aim to collect accurate and up-to-date information so that we can provide you with the excellent, efficient communications.

A lot of the information we receive reaches us electronically. We take great care to keep the information we hold about you safe and secure, with robust technical security using secure passwords.

HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION FOR?

To make sure we meet our legal data protection and privacy obligations, we will only hold your data for as long as we actually need it and will use it solely for the reason we acquired it.

This will usually be the amount of time the campaign runs and for a period of time after. We will also continue to use your information as long as you opt in to receive information.

After this period or withdrawal of consent we will delete your data or anonymise it so it cannot be linked to you.
