Gatehouse Advisory Partners Commitment To Your Privacy
Gatehouse respects your privacy and your right to understand how your information will be handled and used. This policy intends to explain how they collect, use and store your information. Using your information in a way that you are comfortable with and keeping your information secure is an integral part of the service Gatehouse aim to provide. Please note that by visiting and using www.gatehouseadvisorypartners.com, you are accepting the practices described.
What Information Does Gatehouse Collect And How Do They Use It?
Gatehouse collects and uses information about you to ensure they can continue to provide you with a quality bespoke geopolitical advisory service. You provide Gatehouse with your information directly when you sign up to receive Signal, join Gatehouse membership or attend an event hosted by Gatehouse. Gatehouse uses your email address and contact details to fulfil your membership, invite you to events they believe you will be interested in and to contact you with the latest geopolitical advice.
Gatehouse also collect information about you indirectly when you visit their website. Every device connected to the Internet is provided with a domain name and an IP Address. When a visitor requests a web page from within the Gatehouse Advisory Partners website, their servers automatically identify and log the HTTP request that is made. Please note that this information does not reveal anything personal about you. In fact, the only information automatically gathered and logged is as follows: the IP address of the site that may have referred you; your IP address; the web page that you may have linked to Gatehouse from, if any; the product identifier for version and make of browser (e.g. Internet Explorer 10); the operating system platform that you may be running (e.g. Macintosh or Windows); search words or terms that are passed from a search engine (e.g. Google or Yahoo).
Gatehouse has found it advantageous to use this information to enhance customer experience; through maximum compatibility with the various browsers and operating systems that its customers use. Additionally, by analysing visitation patterns, referring URLs and search engine terms, Gatehouse can strategically enhance their exposure across the Internet.
Please note that Gatehouse will share your information only with your recorded consent or when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such actions are necessary.
How Can You Manage The Information Gatehouse Hold About You?
As part of Gatehouse commitment to providing a quality bespoke advisory service, where you have provided your consent, Gatehouse will personalise your service by only sending communications about geopolitical issues that they believe are relevant and interesting to you. If you would like to change the ways in which Gatehouse communicate with you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the team will ensure your preferences are updated. You can also unsubscribe from the Signal via the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each edition sent to you. Please note that it may take up to two weeks for your preferences to be registered on the Gatehouse systems, so you may still receive communications during this period.
If you would like to know more about what information Gatehouse hold about you including making changes to, or requesting the deletion of, information that they hold about you, you are also entitled by law to make a Data Subject Request. You can make such a request by emailing Gatehouse at email@example.com. Please note that Gatehouse may need to exclude certain information as part of your request, e.g. in order to protect the privacy of other individuals or if they are permitted to exclude the information for legal or other reasons. If you would like to contact the Gatehouse Data Protection Officer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How Do Gatehouse Keep Your Information Secure?
Gatehouse is committed to ensuring they have information security measures in place to keep your information secure.
Gatehouse will not share your information with any third parties who might wish to market their goods and services to you unless you have provided your consent. Gatehouse will ensure that any information shared outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) is only done so where there is evidence of the relevant protection in line with data protection legislation requirements.
How Long Will Gatehouse Keep My Information?
Gatehouse will only retain your information for as long as is necessary or where they have a legitimate interest to continue doing so. Gatehouse will make every effort to ensure that where possible your information is anonymised or deleted once the purpose for which it was being used no longer exists. If you unsubscribe from Gatehouse communications and/or services, they will only retain your email address for the purpose of recording your preference to ensure they send no further communications to you.
If Gatehouse specifically changes the way in which they use your personal information or if they need to notify you about a change to the information that they hold about you, they will specifically contact you.
The security of your personal information is of upmost importance to Gatehouse. Whilst Gatehouse use security measures to protect your information against loss, misuse and alteration, as is the case with all computer networks linked to the internet, they cannot make absolute guarantees over the security of the information you provide over the internet and as such cannot be held responsible for it.
Gatehouse Advisory Partners reserves the right to transfer information in connection with the sale of all or part of the Gatehouse Advisory Partners capital stock or assets to any third party. Furthermore, they are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties that receive the information.
Gatehouse would ask you to ensure you never send any sensitive information, such as passwords or credit card information, via email. Additionally, they would recommend that you never share your password for the Gatehouse website. Please note that you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.
