Where we got your information
Your information has been provided by you or a colleague in order to receive products, services or communications from us. Your data was provided through our websites, via email, over the phone, from business cards, connections on LinkedIn and Twitter and referrals from clients and other colleagues.

For information about your rights, please see ‘Your Rights’ section below.
What personal data we collect
We only collect information that is required to keep in contact with you. We collect your name, company name, job title, telephone number, mobile number, email address and office address. We do not collect any special categories of personal data, as defined under the GDPR.
What we do with your personal data
International Marketing Partners processes data under legitimate interests. We have an interest in making sure our marketing is relevant for you, so we may process your information to send you marketing that is tailored to your interests. When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests; we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
We produce high value content to help organisations consider international markets for growth and development. This content is available on the website and is sent to you from time to time.
We will use your data to maintain email, telephone and offline contact with you, preferably at your place of business.
Whenever we process data for these purposes we will ensure that we always keep your personal data rights in high regard and take account of these rights.
Who we share your data with, and why
We use Microsoft Dynamics CRM to store your data and Outlook or Mailchimp to deliver our email communications. Where possible, we gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our communications. For more information, please see Microsoft’s Privacy Statement and Mailchimp’s Privacy Notice.
We will also monitor any emails sent to us, including file attachments, for viruses or malicious software. Please be aware that you have a responsibility to ensure that any email you send is within the bounds of the law.
We may transfer your data on an ad hoc basis for the conclusion or performance of a contract, or pre-contractual measures taken at your request. From time to time this may be outside of the EEA.
We hold your personal data in high regard and will not share your data without your consent. We may disclose your personal data if required to do so by law.
How long we hold your data
We will hold your data for as long as it remains relevant to do so. Should you leave your employer and we are informed, we will retain your personal data but will stop sending you communications.
Where we process your data
We process data at our registered offices and (under contract) at the sites of data processors and third parties appointed by us. Some of these processors may be outside the EEA.
We apply UK data protection law to our processing.
How we keep data secure
We take appropriate steps to maintain our contact information in a secure environment to prevent unauthorised use. Our processors are bound by contract to do the same.
