GDPR & ePrivacy Policy

Terms and conditions of the contract: your rights under GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) & PECR (Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations)

This contract is between you, the data subject, and Executive Grapevine International Limited.

The contract is at the request of the data subject.

Your privacy is important to us and we take it very seriously. We want to help everyone who uses Executive Grapevine International Ltd’s (EGIL) services to get the most out of them. This policy covers all our brands – HR Grapevine, HR Grapevine Live, HRGrapevineVirtual Live Events, Executive Grapevine and myGrapevine and their associated products and services including webinars, virtual round tables, lead generation, solus campaigns, advertising, and third party partner licenses hosted on our platforms.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a new regulation which replaces the Data Protection Regulation (Directive 95/46/EC). The Regulation aims to harmonise data protection legislation across EU member states, enhancing privacy rights for individuals and providing a strict framework within which commercial organisations can legally operate. The UK has voted to leave the EU but currently remains in transition until the end of 2020 and therefore , the GDPR will be applicable until that date. Furthermore the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has laid out its intention to continue with a similar level of regulation post 31/12/2020 or on whichever date the UK does leave the EU should that be sooner or later.

The policy below lays out in simple English how the GDPR and the current PECR (soon to be updated to a new e-Privacy Regulation) applies to the way EG handles your personal data. Our aim is to be responsible, relevant and secure when using your data.

Our expectation is that individuals giving consent share these aims and objectives.  If this is not your expectation, please do not subscribe or enter into a positive or confirmatory action on our platforms. Entering your email into the subscription box indicates that you have read and understood the terms and conditions of the policy. Entering a comment, question, like or follow or request to join a virtual group will be considered to be a positive action and consent to data processing for marketing under GDPR.
