It’s in Internect’s legitimate business interest to collect personal information so that we may contact you solely in your business capacity. We process customer and client data and use direct marketing as part of this legitimate interest. It’s necessary for us to use a variety of direct marketing channels and messages to ensure our contacts are kept informed and make sure the messages are targeted and relevant. This includes processing registrations or enquiries, keeping you informed about new events and updates on current events and offers as well as informing you about our newly available free industry specific content in the field of your interest. Whenever we process data for these purposes we will take measures to ensure that your personal data is protected. The provision of this information is on a voluntary basis. However, if you do not provide the information requested, we may be unable to process your registration, enquiry or inform you about the issue of your interest.
We will keep your data safely and securely for as long as necessary or according to your instructions, and we review the data we hold at least once every two years.
We only collect the kind of standard, non-sensitive information you would expect a B2B supplier to request and which is necessary for the purposes mentioned above.
For example we would collect:
Your name
Your job title/job role
Your email address and contact number(s)
The name of the company or organization you work for
(And we will collect and store data on the transactions and purchases you make with us but never store any sensitive information such as credit card details and bank account numbers)
Internect uses cookies and other third party tracking technologies on our website to provide visitors with a personalised experience. You can choose to permit or restrict the use of these technologies through your personal browser settings. Internect Cookies do not contain any personally identifying information.
We do not rent or sell our customer e-mail lists. We will always ask you for your permission, should a third party request your contact details from us.
Our mailing list is solely for the confidential use of the original mailer.
Internect is not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites, links of which might be included on our website.
Internect takes precautions to protect your information digitally, through the use of encryption, such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. We also undergo the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) by Barclaycard on an annual basis to ensure that we are compliant when users provide credit card information details to us over the internet. Access to all of our customers’ information is restricted to Internect employees and access to personally identifiable information is limited to employees who need the information to perform a specific job. If you register for one of our events and wish to provide us directly with your credit card details in order to make payment and not through our secure and encrypted online system, for security purposes we would only request credit card details over the phone and never via a form or by email.
We are committed to keeping your personal data accurate and up to date. In case any personal data is incorrect or has changed or if you do not wish to receive further communication from us, we will respond accordingly by correcting, changing or removing your information as soon as possible. You may contact us for any of the above reasons by email at info@internect.co.uk
You can reasonably request access to the personal data that we have concerning you, at any time, and we will provide that information free of charge within one month of your request at the latest. We may ask you for a security check or contact you ourselves for verification purposes.
You have the right to opt out of our direct marketing at any point, and we will deal with your request at our earliest opportunity. You can do so by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link placed in the footer of a promotional email or contact us at info@internect.co.uk with the request to be unsubscribed.

Internect reviews its data protection and privacy procedures and policy regularly. If necessary, Internect reserves the right to amend its privacy policy. In such case, we will amend the “last updated” date and you will be informed of the revisions to the privacy policy via a statement displayed on this webpage.
Legitimate interest is the most appropriate basis for us to contact you and/or to store and process the aforementioned standard, non-sensitive information about you. Only personal data that is needed to provide you with a service is collected and is never used or shared for any unrelated purposes. The information is kept safe from hacking or theft, accurate and up to date. We have conducted a legitimate interests assessment (LIA) and keep a record of it. Please note that we only use your data in ways that you would reasonably expect and that you have a right to be forgotten. Please feel free to contact us at info@internect.co.uk to request your personal data or any information related to privacy.
Internect Ltd. will take all steps necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with the Privacy Policy.
