Types of Information Collected

Data that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you and may include your name, current job title, company address, email address and telephone number. Such information is only collected from you if you voluntarily submit it to us. We define “personal data” as any data from which it is practical to directly determine the identity of an individual. We also apply the GDPR principle of “purpose limitation”, under which personal data must only be “collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes”. Like most platforms, we gather statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate basis of all visitors to our website. This data comprises information that cannot be used to identify or contact you.
