Privacy Policy

Insight Group PLC is strongly committed to protecting your privacy while interacting with our content, products and services provided on our website www.insightgroupplc.com (herein referred to as ´┐ŻOur Website´┐Ż). We want to provide a safe and secure environment for you.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to tell you what kind of information we may gather about you when you visit our website, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct this information. Our policy allows you to choose what kind and how much information you provide to us and to control how we use whatever information you give us. Our goal is to provide you with a satisfying experience while allowing you to control your privacy and to give you a means to voice any questions or concerns you may have.

This policy applies only to Our Website and not to other companies' or organisations' websites to which Insight Group PLC is linked.

Collection of information

Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our services. Depending on the service you are accessing, you could be asked to provide information such as your name, email address or information about what you like and do not like. It is entirely your choice whether to respond to these questions or not.

Our Website collects two types of information. The first type is anonymous information. For instance, we may collect information to tell us that five thousand people visit this Privacy Policy today, but we do not know their names, where they live or their date of birth - they are 'anonymous' to us.

The second type of information that Our Website collects is personal information. Our Website will collect personal information that lets us know the specifics of who you are such as your name, email address, or phone number, when you provide it to us. With this information, we can provide a variety of personalised and enhanced services that are not available to anonymous users. We hope that you will find it beneficial to provide individually identifiable information about yourself to us because it will make our services more valuable to you.

Sometimes, we may specifically ask for personal information about you when you sign up to use a service. Certain information may be required, such as the above, in order to provide that service or product to you. This information may also be used to inform you of additional products and services which may interest you. You can choose not to receive such information when you are undertaking product or service registration on our website. We may also ask about your interests, but it is your choice whether to respond.

How much of your personal information that you choose to disclose to Our Website is completely up to you. The only way we know something about you personally is if you provide it to us, for example when you complete a form to download one of our research reports.

Use of anonymous information

Our Website automatically gathers anonymous information to monitor the use of Our Website like the numbers and frequency of visitors to Our Website and its areas, very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We only use such data in the aggregate. This collective data helps us determine how much our audiences use parts of the site, so we can improve Our Website to assure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many users as possible. Our Website may publish or provide this aggregate data to other people.

Use of personal information

Our Website will only use the personal information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it. Our Website will not use it for any other purpose without your consent.

Cookies

A cookie is a small file that a website sends your computer. It records information necessary for certain website functions, such as remembering your preferences or settings.

Our Website does not use Cookies.

Disclosure

We do not disclose personal information that you may give us, such as your name, address, email address or telephone number, to any organisation or person outside Insight Group PLC unless you have authorised us to do so.

No sale of personal information

Under no circumstances will Our Website sell or receive payment for licensing or disclosing your personal information.

Interacting with Our Website

When interacting with Our Website, we suggest that you use your discretion and exercise caution when providing your personal information.

Note that whenever you post personal information in publicly accessible places, such as chat rooms or message boards, this information becomes available to anyone with access to the internet. This information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Therefore, we recommend that you refrain from posting any information that you do not want seen in these public areas.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Be responsible whenever you are online.

Access and correction: personal data

If Our Website holds your personal information, Insight Group PLC will where possible provide you with access to the information. Insight Group PLC will take reasonable steps to correct the information so that it is accurate, complete and up to date.

Security

Insight Group PLC operates secure data networks that are designed to protect your privacy and security.
