We take our responsibilities regarding your data very seriously and this privacy policy outlines our responsibilities and our use of your data. 

This privacy policy is up to date as of 1st November 2023 and is routinely reviewed/updated. 

The data we collect 

Our approach to data is to collect the minimum volume required to successfully run our business.  These include: 

  • Where you have asked us to contact you 
  • Where you have purchased a ticket or registered to attend an event 
  • To enable us to service our contractual obligations 
  • To meet our legal obligations 
  • To respond to enquiries and complaints 

Our services are not suitable for children and therefore no children’s data is collected. 

What information does PJLJ Ltd collect from you? 

We collect your name, job title, employer, email address, mobile number and specific questions that relate to that event. We collect these via our “sign-up for alerts” page, registering our events or any of our free resources. 

We may also collect financial details to ensure we meet our obligations to make payments to you. We do not collect credit card details as we use a 3rd party provider to accept payments and they retain your credit card details. Please view their privacy policy here  

We make every reasonable effort to secure the data we collect is held in secure systems with access carefully managed.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. 

An anonymised string created from your e-mail address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service Privacy Policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Embedded content from other websites 

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. 

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website. We have no control over 3rd party websites and users access these links at their own risk. 

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Data Retention 

To meet our legal obligations we retain data for 7 years.

Who do we share your personal data with? 

We have never sold personal data to a third party and we never will. 

When you attend an event you may be asked to share your data with exhibitors by allowing them to scan the bar code on your ticket. If you choose to allow this then you are giving your consent direct to them to process your data.

We have strict controls in place regarding access to data and limit access to data on a need-to-know basis.  All contracts with our external team include confidentiality clauses. 

Where is your data held? 

We use mainstream software to process data and undergo careful due diligence before adding new technology.  We ensure that all systems have high levels of data security and that all team members comply with our security policies.  

Data in our systems may be transferred outside the UK to the EU and US via the software systems we use. Where this is the case we ensure that relevant legal protections are in place.
