The following Additional Privacy Statements (the "Additional Statements") have been added by the Event Organiser and are specific and in relation to this Event ("2021 Data Science Festival Online") only. These set out additional Promotion and Insight activities that are being conducted by the Event Organiser and sets out additional data processing that they expect to do:
At The Idols Group LTD we collect different types of information about our users for four main reasons: -To provide personalised services unique to individual users. -To help us to monitor and improve the services we offer. -To keep customers up-to-date about the products and services they have registered for or subscribed to. -To fulfill contracted services
About us The protection of your privacy and personal information is important to us. We make sure that not only do we have appropriate security measures in place, but that any other organisation we work with to provide a service also meets the same standard as us.
We will respect your privacy. You should receive marketing emails only from us and other organisations we have carefully chosen. We will make sure that the boxes you need to tick if you are happy to receive marketing are presented clearly and at an appropriate time.
We will make it clear at the point when we request your information, what we are collecting it for and how we are going to use it.
We will collect and use your personal information only if we have your permission or we have sensible business reasons for doing so, such as collecting enough information to manage your subscriptions or process your event registration.
We will minimise the amount of information we collect from you to what we need to deliver the product and services you have requested.
We will be clear in our dealings with you as to what information about you we will collect and how we will use it.
We will use personal information only for the purposes for which it was originally collected and we will make sure we delete it securely.
Our websites are accessible via the internet. Please remember that if you post any comments or links on any of our sites that they can be read and accessed by anyone and everyone.
What information do we collect about you and how do we use it? We collect information on you: -When you register for an event (including live streamed events), an awards programme or competition -When you contact us for information -When you work with us in a commercial capacity, either as a sponsor or partner -When you sign up for a newsletter -When you subscribe to a paper or digital magazine -When you download an app -When you use the website -Through cookies -If you choose to reveal information in postings -If you complete your details on research questionnaires, and when you enter sales promotions and competitions.
Certain services that we provide may involve us collecting extra information (your location or preferred language, for example), so that we can tailor the information we give you better.
What legal bases do we use for processing your data? We use different legal bases depending upon the purpose for collecting your data in the first instance. For all data collected to sign up for a product and service such as a newsletter, an event or a magazine subscription we process the data using Legitimate Interest, i.e. you are able to access an extensive range of information in exchange for supplying your information, and we have a relationship where the balance of benefit is in your favour.
You always have a choice in the management of your data in this manner and can opt out of processing under this basis at any time.
Where you provide data in the course of the purchase of a product we process your data under Contract, i.e. your data is necessary for the fulfilment of the service.
Any additional contact, i.e. telling you about another product or service closely related to the product or service you have bought is managed under legitimate interest.
Any secondary processing of your data, i.e. sharing with third parties, sending you messages on behalf of third parties, transfer to third countries, is managed under Consent.
Under the terms of current data protection legislation, we will always make it as easy as possible for you to opt out of unwanted processing, providing it does not restrict our ability to provide you with the service you have requested.
Profiling From time to time we may use some elements of the data you supply to target the messages we send you. For example, we may use your location to send you information about an event which is happening in the same country, or we may use your company type to send you a relevant news story.
None of this information is collated by wholly automated means and the rights and freedoms of the data subject are safeguarded by suitable measures.
How long do you hold on to my data? Because we collect data for a wide range of purposes, we do not have a singularly defined retention period. For each individual product and service we define a carefully assessed time frame within which we retain your data. After this, data is managed to ensure that it is either erased from our system, minimised and retained for legal reasons or pseudonymised and retained on a global suppression list to ensure that you do not receive unwanted messaging from us.
Registering as a subscriber or delegate The minimum information we need from you to register you as either a subscriber or a delegate is your name, job title, company name and address, landline telephone number and email address. We will ask you more questions for different services, including marketing emails. Unless we say otherwise, you must answer all the registration questions. We may also ask some other, voluntary questions during registration (for example, general demographic questions about your business) so we can gain a clearer understanding of who you are. This enables us to assess whether you qualify for a free subscription or registration, need to be invited to an event as a VIP or to deliver specific products to you. We may also use these details to create anonymised audience information for our sponsors and partners to facilitate their advertising or commercial decision-making processes. We will process data collected for the purpose of facilitating your registration or subscription on the basis of Legitimate Interests to deliver the service for which you have registered or subscribed. We will also, on this basis, contact you occasionally about other relevant The Idols Group products events, and services which we think will interest you. You always have a choice and can opt out of processing on this basis at any time by contacting our Database Manager, the by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone on 01908 465570.
Other uses of your data We will also send you emails from trusted partners we think may interest you. At any time you can decide not to receive these emails and will be able to ‘unsubscribe’. We will only share your data with our sponsors, exhibitors and commercial partners.
Updating your personal information Under current data privacy legislation, you have the right to rectify, erase or restrict the processing of your data without undue delay. You may also request access to the data we hold on you. To do this or to update your personal information at any time please contact our Database Manager, the by email at email@example.com or telephone on 01908 465570.

Legal information and how to contact us Under the currently Applicable Laws we have to say who the ‘data controller’ is for The Idols Group LTD products and services provided via our websites, our magazines, events and other products and services.

HeySummit is not responsible for any part of the above Additional Statements and is only responsible for the Core Privacy Statements set out hereunder:
The following Core Privacy Statements (the "Privacy Statements"), together with the Core Terms of Service and any other documents referred to herein set out we will use the data you provide us at www.HeySummit.com and/or www.app.HeySummit.com (the "Platform") and what Insight activities are ongoing there too.
Please read these Privacy Statements carefully and ensure that you understand them. You will be able to change your Privacy Preferences at any time throughout your time using the Platform and thereafter.
HeySummit’s purpose in establishing this Privacy Statement is to give you information about how HeySummit collects and processes your personal data through your use of the HeySummit Services, including any data you may provide through the HeySummit platform. If you do not agree with the terms, do not access or use the HeySummit Services, websites or any other aspect of HeySummit’s business.
This Privacy Statement applies to all users of HeySummits Platform and associated technology. It is important that you read this Privacy Statement together with any other Privacy Statement or fair processing policy we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting, or processing, personal data about You, so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your data. This Privacy Statement supplements other notices and privacy policies and is not intended to override them.
Data protection law in certain jurisdictions differentiates between the “controller” and “processor” of information. HeySummit and Event hosts are independent controllers of certain types of your personal data, such as your registration data (like name and email) and attendance data (like Event name, date and time of Event, and Event sessions attended). Event hosts are the controller, and HeySummit is the processor of Event data, such as information and materials submitted to, or during an Event.
We keep our Privacy Statement under regular review and it may be updated periodically. Laws, regulations, and industry standards evolve, which may make those changes necessary, or we may make changes to our services or business. We will notify you by posting an updated, date-stamped version of this Privacy Statement on our website. If we make changes that materially alter your privacy rights, we will provide notice to you in accordance with applicable law. Notice may be by posting a notice on our website, by email to you at the email address that you most recently provided to us, or by other means, consistent with applicable law. Accordingly, please keep your account information, including email address, updated.
The HeySummit Services include links to third-party websites and applications as well as to partner providers of multiple different types of services associated with a particular Event.
Clicking on links to third party websites, content or applications may allow those third parties to collect or share data about you. We do not control those third-party websites or content and are not responsible for their privacy statements or the way in which they collect or use your data.
Where you access or use third party services provided by an Event organiser, advertiser, sponsor or any other party who participates in an Event, we encourage you to request details of and read the Privacy Statement of that party. We do not control those third parties and are not responsible for their privacy statements or the way in which they collect or use your data.
