Lead Generation & Solus Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions are to be read in conjunction with the General Terms & Conditions for all EGIL services, the GDPR policy and precise details outlined of the campaign as stated in the Booking Form.

1 Data ownership

1.1. Lead Generation: All Data (Business Contact Information) which is secured as part of any marketing services campaign is passed in full to a Buyer on completion of the contract.

1.2. Solus: All Data remains the property of Executive Grapevine International Limited (EGIL) unless the Data Subject agrees as part of the campaign to accept the goods and services of the Buyer.

2. Data Processing and Accuracy

2.1. All data is collected in accordance with The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679). This is a new regulation which replaces the Data Protection Regulation (Directive 95/46/EC) and the e-Privacy Directive 2009/12/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. Even though the UK has expressed its intention to leave the EU in March 2019, the GDPR will be applicable in the UK from 25th May 2018. Furthermore, the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has recently laid out its intention to continue with a similar level of regulation post Brexit.

2.2. EGIL uses all reasonable endeavours to ensure Data is accurate and up-to-date and meets the criteria of the Buyers campaigns. All campaign lists used in data products are compiled directly from the data subjects lists owned and researched by EGIL. It cannot warrant that any of the records are 100% complete where public records are not accurate or where subjects have confirmed a variance on this.

2.3. Where using a list for an exclusive Buyer cmpaign, Data Subjects are advised at the time of sign up, that EGIL will rely on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR as a lawful basis for processing their Personal Data.

Article 6 (1)(f): 'processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental right and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of Personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child'.

    2.3.2. Specifically, Recital 47 affirms direct marketing as a legal basis for processing by the Controller or Third Party provided that the interests or the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden.

    2.3.3. Recital 47: 'The legitimate interests of a controller, including those of a controller to which the Personal data may be disclosed, or of a third party, may provide a legal basis for processing, provided that the interests or the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overriding, taking into consideration the reasonable expectations of the data subject based on their relationship with the controller'.

    2.3.4. 'The processing of Personal Data for direct marketing purposes maybe regarded as carried out for a legitimate interest'.

    2.3.5. EGIL undertake to balance the rights of both the individual data subject and any third party to whom the data is passed, taking into consideration the reasonable expectations of data subjects and the provision of Recital 47. Subjects are advised that their data may be transferred to a carefully selected third party, provided they demonstrate to the satisfaction of the EGIL Data Controller that they have met the criteria laid out in Section 4. Whilst EGIL agrees that all Data has been fairly and lawfully obtained in accordance with the GDPR and the current Data Protection Act 2018, no warranty is given regarding the accuracy or completeness of individual addresses, contact names or telephone numbers or that any list is a complete compilation of the categories of persons or establishments described therein.
