Commercial Reporter’s Privacy Policy

Commercial Reporter's Privacy Policy

At Commercial Reporter, we're committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This policy explains when and why we collect personal information about people who visit our website, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

We may change this policy from time to time so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you're happy with any changes. By using our websites, you're agreeing to be bound by this policy (this is our Terms of Use).

Any questions regarding this policy and our privacy practices should be sent by email to privacy@barcadiamedia.co.uk or by post to Barcadia Media, 14 Edward Street, Blackpool, Lancashire, FY1 1BA.

How do we collect information from you?

If you register to receive our newsletters, you will be asked for certain information - for example, your name, address, email address, and news preferences (i.e. what types of news you're interested in).

How is your information used?

We may use your information to:

  • send you newsletters as per your preferences;
  • notify you of changes to our services;
  • send you communications from third party commercial services companies that may be of interest to you to you. These may include information about events or our associated brands (i.e. Commercial Reporter Awards, our educational Roadshows) or about products and services that are related to your professional interests

We provide you with this communication on the grounds of legitimate business interests – i.e., we will process the personal information you have supplied to us to conduct and manage our business to enable us to give you the most appropriate marketing, information, service and products and provide the best and most secure experience. These are what we consider to be our 'Legitimate Interests'.

We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity – please get in touch with us on 01253 272998 or privacy@barcadiamedia.co.uk if you would like to know specifically how long your data is kept for a particular purpose. You have the option to be removed from our database at any time.

Who has access to your information?

Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond Commercial Reporter for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have specifically given us permission us to do so – such as in the case of our Roadshow events - or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

Your choices

You have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from us. If you do not want to receive our news or promotions any longer, then you can select your choices by ticking the relevant boxes situated on our email preferences page.

How you can access and update your information

The accuracy of your information is important to us. We're working on ways to make it easier for you to review and correct the information that we hold about you. In the meantime, if you change email address, or any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please email us at: privacy@barcadiamedia.co.uk or telephone 01253 272998. You have the right to ask for a copy of the information Commercial Reporter holds about you.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it's treated securely.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

If you would like to see a copy of our Data Security Policy, please email privacy@barcadiamedia.co.uk.
