We may collect and use the following information:
What do we do with the personal information we collect?
We use your personal information to provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
Whom do we share this information with?
Your personal information will be used for the above purposes by relevant staff in Idis and by those who support them in their roles. It will also be made available to companies within our group of companies (“Group”), and to those we engage to help us run our business, including our strategic business partners. This may include distributors of our products and services, as well as service providers and subcontractors retained to perform functions on our behalf or to provide services to us, such as warehousing and delivery; marketing and advertising; software development; website hosting and management; information technology and office services; legal, accounting, audit and other professional service providers; and other services related to our business. This information is provided to such service providers and subcontractors on the basis that they do not collect, use or disclose the personal information for any purpose other than to perform such functions on our behalf or to provide services to us or as otherwise required by law.
Your personal information may also be shared within our group of companies for other limited purposes e.g. to the extent needed for proper management and analysis and decision making including in relation to taking decisions regarding the expansion of our service offering.
Idis may also disclose your personal data:
Other than as set out above, we will not transfer, disclose, sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission to do so or are otherwise required or permitted to do so by law.
Where is your data?
The personal information you provide through the Website is processed in the United States. It may be transferred to other members of the Group or other third parties as described in the previous paragraphs. We will take steps to ensure that your personal information will be afforded the level of protection required of us under applicable data protection legislation and this policy.
Direct marketing and your preferences
Idis and (if you agree to our sharing your personal information with them) other members of our Group may wish to provide you with information about new products, services, articles, podcasts, webinars, educational tools, events, details of the expansion of any of our service offerings and other materials which may be of interest to you and may invite you to take part in market research or request feedback on our services. This communication may occur by email, telephone, post or SMS. We will obtain your consent where we are required to do so in accordance with applicable law.
Idis will ensure that any direct marketing or market research that you receive or are contacted about by electronic means will provide a simple means for you to refuse further marketing. For example, in emails it may provide you with an ‘unsubscribe’ link, or an email address to which you can send an opt-out request. Idis and members of our Group will stop any marketing to which you object or withdraw your consent to within a reasonable period, in order to allow sufficient time for the change to be administered. You can change your mind at any time about marketing by informing Idis using the contact details set out at the top of this notice. In such cases Idis would not necessarily remove all your personal data from its database(s) but would note and respect your changed direct marketing preferences.
