GibCyber is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected and respected in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using our website or when purchasing a ticket, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

GibCyber may change this policy from time to time by updating this page.  This policy was updated on 24th May 2018.

What we collect

We may collect the following information:

  • Traffic data through google analytics;
  • contact information including name, email address, company name and job title;
  • demographic information such as location, preferences and interests;
  • other information relevant to customer surveys and/or offers.

Our legal basis for collecting personal data

We may process data if it is considered to be of legitimate interest, and if the privacy interests of the data subjects do not override this interest. Normally, to establish the legal basis for data collection, an assessment has been made during which a mutual interest between GibCyber and the individual person has been identified. This legal basis is primarily related to our sales and marketing purposes. We will always inform individuals about their privacy rights and the purpose for collecting personal data.

Collecting personal data based on consents:-

The collection of personal data based on consent from the data subject will be done by using “Consent Forms” that will store documentation related to the consent given by the individual. Individual consents will not be stored and documented in our systems.

Collecting personal data based on contracts:-

We may process personal information for fulfilling our obligations related to contracts and agreements with customers and our partner/sponsors.

What we do with the information 

We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:

  • Internal record keeping.
  • We may use the information to improve our products and services.
  • We and Our Sponsors may periodically send promotional emails about an event you have purchased a ticket to, new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.

Controlling your personal information

You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information in the following ways:

  • When purchasing an event ticket, you will be asked to comply with our terms and conditions, which allows our sponsors to use your information for direct marketing purposes only. You will also have the option to opt out by selecting that you do not comply with our terms and condition at point of purchase.
  • If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you can change your mind at any time by contacting us at connect@ gibcyber.com
  • We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. We may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which we think you may find interesting if you tell us that you wish this to happen.

Security

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
