This statement, set forth below, is our privacy statement for Alexander Rosse Limited. Here we describe the practices we follow to respect the privacy of all visitors to Our Website.

 

In this statement, personal information means data which relates to an individual and which identifies that individual, either directly or indirectly, such as your name or your contact information.

 

If you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal information, please contact us or your usual representative.

 

Collection, use, disclosure, choice
Registration is not required for you to use Our Website. If you are merely a visitor, we do not collect any personal information about you, except to the limited extent through the use of cookies, which are described below. However, there may be circumstances in which you choose to register and receive ongoing updates from Alexander Rosse. In these cases, Alexander Rosse may contact registrants to invite them to special events, provide them with information about our services, publications and products, or for other marketing purposes.

 

For example, you may choose to register for:

  1. Email alerts
    Alexander Rosse offers an email alert service to site visitors, in which we send subscribers email updates when new information is added to Our Website. If you decide to subscribe, we will collect basic contact information about you, such as your name and email address.
  2. Surveys
    Alexander Rosse may conduct surveys via Our Website. Survey participants may be asked for personal information (name, contact information, etc.) in addition to opinions or feedback. The type of information collected in surveys will vary.
  3. Event registration
    Alexander Rosse facilitates event registration via Our Website or, at times, via third party web sites. Personal information may be collected via event registration forms and the type of information collected will vary. Alexander Rosse may share registrant information with third parties in association with the event.

 

Examples of “third parties” include hotels, sponsors or co-sponsors, promoters, event organisers (including via third party web sites), speakers, panelists, etc. Please check the details provided at individual events to understand fully how your information will be used and retained.

 

Information collected at registration is protected using industry-standard encryption technology as it is sent over the Internet.

 

If you register on Our Website, your personal information will be stored in our customer relationship management (CRM) system.  Data of registrants who have been out of active use for 18 months will be deleted from our CRM system.

 

If you have opted out for receiving future Alexander Rosse publications, your contact details will remain on our opt-out list to prevent that you receive any further publications from Alexander Rosse.

Disclosure
Alexander Rosse may only disclose your personal information outside of Alexander Rosse:

  • Where the disclosure is necessary to fulfil your request and involves a third party organisation with which Alexander Rosse has a relationship (see “Third Party Links” below); or

  • As required by a court order or any other legal or regulatory requirement; or
  • Where the disclosure is reasonably related to the sale or other disposition of all or part of our business.

What is a cookie?
A “cookie” is technology that allows Our Website to store tokens of information (an ‘identifier’) in your browser used only by Our Website while you are on Our Website. Cookies are not used to determine the personal identity of anyone who is merely visiting Our Website.

 

On certain pages of Our Website, cookies are used to help us track your interests while you browse the internet, so we can tailor more relevant advertising to you, and to understand what is important to you.

 

How do I disable cookies?

  4. Targeting and Tracking Cookies
    On certain pages of Our Website, we use cookies to help us understand your interests as you browse the internet, so we can tailor and deliver to you a more personalised service in the future. This assists us in delivering relevant advertising to you during various advertising campaigns we may run from time to time through participating third party sites.

 

These cookies collect information relating to the origin of your visit, where you were exposed to Alexander Rosse advertising, what advertising feature you saw, whether you arrived directly or indirectly to Our Website, the device you used to visit Our Website and which downloads you performed. This information is collected on an anonymous basis via third party suppliers.

 

In addition, we also utilise cookies on certain pages of Our Website to communicate with third party data suppliers in order to extrapolate your digital behaviour. This help us to understand and target more relevant advertising in the future. The information we receive is all aggregate and anonymous, but will include statistics such as demographics, online behaviour, product interests and lifestyle. Targeting and tracking cookies are provided via trusted third party suppliers. Should you require more information regarding our suppliers and how these cookies operate please contact us.

 

What are Web Beacons?
Alexander Rosse occasionally advertises on third party web sites. As part of our effort to track the success of our advertising campaigns, we may at times use a visitor identification technology such as “web beacons,” or “action tags,” which count visitors who have come to Our Website after being exposed to an Alexander Rosse banner ad on a third party site. We do not use this technology to access your personal information and it is only used to compile aggregated statistics about visitors who come to Our Website to gauge the effectiveness of our ads.
