Privacy Policy

1.0 Preamble

Future of Finance is a provider of on- and offline events, their associated content, and related services. We make all reasonable efforts to respect the privacy of everybody who visits our Website, registers for our events, or communicates with us. 

This Privacy Policy describes how Future of Finance maintains, uses and shares information that we collect when you use our Website. We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, and you will be deemed to have been notified when we post the changes here.

2.0 Types of information we collect

Some of the information that we collect when you use our Website, such as your name, company name, postal address, email address and telephone number, can allow you to be identified. This is what we mean by Personal Information, and we collect it from you in the following ways:

Registration for an event: When you register to attend a Future of Finance event, or agree to be sent reminders of the event, or agree to be contacted about future events, you are asked to provide Personal Information, which we use to deliver the event and related services to you. 

Panels and articles: If you appear on a panel at Future of Finance event or contribute an article to the Website under your own name, or make a comment in areas of our Website that provide facilities for generating content from users, you consent to the posting of any Personal Information that you provide. Any such Personal Information can be read, collected, or used by other visitors to the Website, and we have no control over how these visitors use your Personal Information, so you should always be careful when deciding to post any personal data.

Other sources: We may receive your Personal Information from other sources, such as public databases, directories, publications, websites, sponsors and other third parties. Such Personal Information is always used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Polls: We may ask you to complete surveys or short multiple-choice question polls when you register for an event, or during the event itself. Participation in these polls is voluntary, and the information is used only in aggregate form to highlight or illustrate points of discussion at an event and is never used in such a way that individual respondents can be identified.

Queries: If you share Personal Information with us in order to pose a query, whether by email or telephone or mail or any other means, we will use it to respond to your query only. We do not share such information with any third-party, unless you consent to us doing so.

Social media: If you engage with our events, content and related services on social media, we may receive your Personal Information via the relevant social media platform provider, including information about people with whom you are connected through that platform provider. This personal data may be shared with the social media platform provider and other users of the social media platform. By engaging with our material on social media, you are deemed to understand that the use of the information is governed by the privacy policy of the relevant social media platform as well as this Privacy Policy. 

Visitors: If you visit the Website without registering for an event, or contacting us, or appearing on a panel or contributing an article, we do not collect any Personal Information about you except through a server log that automatically records the Internet domain from which you access the Website, your Internet Protocol (IP) address, the browser you used, the date and time you visited the Website, the page on the Website you visited and the address of any third party website which offered you a link from their website to ours. This information is used to calculate usage levels, diagnose server issues and administer services. We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address. We do not use email trackers or cookies or any similar technologies.

3.0 Service providers 

We contract with third-party service providers to perform certain functions for us. These service providers may be given access to your information for the purpose of performing those functions, but they may not use this information for any other purpose.

4.0 Transfers of data to other jurisdictions

We may transfer your Personal Information to countries outside of your own. By using our Website you consent to the transfer of your Personal Information in this manner. Although data protection legislation differs between countries, we will make reasonable efforts to ensure your Personal Information is protected to at least the same degree as is described in this Privacy Policy.

5.0 Sale of the business or assets

If we sell the business of Future of Finance, or any of its assets, we may need to disclose your Personal Information to the prospective buyer of the business or its assets. If the sale is completed, your Personal Information will be acquired by the buyer, so that the buyer can continue to provide the services associated with the business or assets. You will receive a notification from the new owners of your Personal Information.

6.0 Communications 

We use the Personal Information that we collect from you for the purpose of informing you about events and content we believe will be of interest to you. You consent or refuse consent to our use of your Personal Information in this way when you register for an event.

7.0 Access, correction and deletion

If you would like us to stop sending you communications, or would like us not to disclose your Personal Information to other organisations, or would like to access your registration information to correct or delete it, please contact Wendy Gallagher at wendy.gallagher@futureoffinance.biz.

8.0 Third parties

We may make your Personal Information available to other organisations, such as the sponsor of an event, to allow them to communicate with you about products or services they believe may be of interest to you. You consent or refuse consent to our use of your Personal Information in this way when you register for an event.

If you provide further information to other organisations, its use and security is governed by the policies and practices of those companies and not by this privacy policy. We make no representations or warranties about any of these other organisations or their privacy or cyber-security policies. 

Once you click through to an unaffiliated website, this Privacy Policy no longer applies. We urge you to obtain and review the applicable policies of any other organisations you contact or whose websites you visit.

9.0 Legal disclosure

We will disclose your Personal Information when required to do so by law or regulation, or in response to a court order or subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a request by a law enforcement agency or where we believe such disclosure is necessary to protect our legal rights and interests, or to protect the legal rights and interests of other users of our Website and the related Services.

  1. Retention period

We have a data retention policy that ensures we do not use or store your Personal Information for longer than necessary. The period of retention is governed by the business rationale for collection, the expiry of the purpose for which Personal Information was collected, and especially by whether consent was given for the information to be retained  for longer than the original purpose for which the Personal Information was originally collected.

Our retention policy is adjusted to take account of guidance issued by the Information Commissioner of the United Kingdom, or any other regulatory agency, or any industry best practice recommendations published, or changes in our legal and regulatory obligations.
