Types of information collected by The Analytics Institute

We collect and further process two types of information:

"Personal Data"
This is data that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you and may include your name, address, e-mail address, user IP addresses in circumstances where they have not been deleted, clipped or anonymised and telephone number. Such information is only collected from you if you voluntarily submit it to use and we use it to deliver the Analytics Institute services and information to you. The Analytics Institute collects personal data in the following circumstances.

Under the Analytics Institute membership, member organisations are asked to nominate named contacts in their business/ organisation with whom the Analytics Institute may communicate with to provide The Analytics Institute services. These contact details are collected on a business to business basis and the legal basis for such data protection is to facilitate the necessary performance of the membership function.

In addition, member companies or individual professional members may provide contacts details to the Analytics Institute when seeking training and/or certification services from the Analytics Institute.

Other personal data processed by the Analytics Institute are for attending Analytics Institute events and training courses, for undertaking our industry surveys, and communicating with policy, media and other stakeholders with whom the Analytics Institute communicates as part of its role as a lobby organisation.

We will also have supplier contact details which will contain individual names.
In addition, the Analytics Institute processes personal data of employees.

The Analytics Institute websites are not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children.

Like most websites, we gather statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate basis of all visitors to our website. This Non-Personal Data comprises information that cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information regarding, for example, user IP addresses where they have been clipped or anonymised, browser types and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of our website.

Purposes for which we hold your Information

We use the Non-Personal Data gathered from visitors to our website in an aggregate form to get a better understanding of where our visitors come from and to help us better design and organise our website.

The Analytics Institute uses member contact and other relevant personal information to provide membership services to member companies and to individual professional members.

It is core to the Analytics Institute membership services that the Analytics Institute communicates with its members to keep them informed and up to date on what we are doing on their behalf and to seek their views and input (including membership surveys) on issues of relevance.

While the Analytics Institute member interactions are primarily business to business, they contain - principally via member contact details - some personal data. The relevant legal basis for processing any such personal data in the Analytics Institute member communications and membership necessity.

The Analytics Institute relies on its legitimate interest as a business representative organisation and professional body to represent its members and also to provide information on a range of lobbying and policy development issues and initiatives to officials (national, European and international), commentators, media, trade unions, other employer representatives and other similar stakeholders.

The Analytics Institute provides information, training and events to non-members who enquire, generally via the website in the first instance. Non-members may also contact the Analytics Institute via the phone or via personal interaction with an Analytics Institute staff member. Non-members includes individuals attending Analytics Institute training or events in their personal capacity. We rely on consent and contractual necessity for those communications.

The Analytics Institute data retention procedures ensure that the information is kept for no longer than is necessary.

Employees and Job candidates
If you apply to work with the Analytics Institute we will use the personal data you give us during the recruitment process and will retain it for one year after your recruitment process ends unless otherwise obliged by law to retain it. We will only share it with our recruitment agencies and contractors if they are party to the process and to check references with third-parties nominated by you. We may keep de-personalised recruitment statistics for our own internal purposes but none of this data will identify you.

When you attend an Analytics Institute event, we will need your name, email address, payment information and, in some cases, your dietary preferences. This information is necessary and used by us in organising and administering the event. We delete event attendance data within a maximum of 14 months (and maybe less depending on the event). if the event is an annual event we will hold your contact details to let you know when it is next being held. We normally handle Analytics Institute events ourselves but we may also use event managers who are GDPR compliant. Where this happens, we ask those external event managers to display their privacy statement to those with whom they interact with on Analytics Institute's behalf. If you are a speaker at an Analytics Institute event, we will publicly promote your involvement via Twitter, LinkedIn, media interviews, emails and webinars. This data may continue to be processed by those platform providers after the event has ended.

The Analytics Institute provides training programmes to members. The Analytics Institute training programmes may involve other third-party contractors to the Analytics Institute or maybe provided in association with other programme operators. Where this happens, the Analytics Institute will have an agreement in place with the other third party which will honour and protect the data privacy rights of training participants. These rights are set down later in this privacy statement.

Disclosure of information to third parties

We may provide Non-Personal Data to third parties, where such information is combined with similar information of other users of our website. For example, we occasionally inform third parties - usually sponsors of the Analytics Institute events and initiatives - of the number of unique users who visit our websites, the demographic breakdown of our community users of our websites, or the activities that visitors to our website engage in while on our website.

We will not disclose your Personal Data to third parties unless you have consented to our doing so. We will, however, disclose your Personal Data if we believe in good faith that we are required to disclose it in order to comply with any applicable law, a summons, a search warrant, a court, workplace relations forum, regulatory order, or other statutory requirement.

We may occasionally transfer personal data outside the EEA but will not do so without your permission nor without appropriate assurances on the adequacy of data privacy protection commitments.

Your Personal Data is held on secure servers which are hosted by ourselves in accordance with our data retention schedule. The nature of the Internet is such that we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us via the Internet. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Any transmission of data is therefore at your own risk.

Our suppliers are also required to use appropriate data protection compliance measures. We will continue to revise policies and implement additional security features as new technologies become available
