How have we got your information

You may have given us your personal data yourself. For example, you may have given us your business card at an event, emailed us requesting information, or filled in an online form so that you could download a report, document or some other information. We may have found your contact details at some publicly available source but in this case we wouldn’t use them without your consent.

What information do we collect

If you are an RealTime Lead Group user your organisation may have asked us to create an account for you. To do this we only need your name and email address. If your organisation creates your account they will choose what information to collect and what information to disclose to publishers. This RealTime Lead Group Privacy Notice can’t address that situation, you need to contact your organisation’s RealTime Lead Group administrator if you have any questions. If you are the RealTime Lead Group contact for your organisation or someone who has expressed an interest in RealTime Lead Group, we only require your name, your role or job title, your department, the name of your organisation and your business contact details (phone numbers and email address). Occasionally we might ask you for other personal information when we run an event or an online survey. We’ll always make it clear why we’re collecting that information and how long we’ll keep it and of course it will be up to you whether you want to participate in the event or survey.

What we do with your information

We only use your information in connection with the RealTime Lead Group service.

We may contact you with news about RealTime Lead Group including changes and improvements to service and to tell you about any events or surveys that we’ll be running.  If you’re the nominated contact for your organisation, we may also need to use your personal data to process your purchase orders, invoices and payments and to contact you about the service. This means we might need to share your personal data with some of our suppliers/service providers. We’ll never sell your data. We might need to share it with third parties but only in connection with the RealTime Lead Group service – for example, if you are located outside The Netherlands then one of our local partners may need to use your personal data so as to deliver some aspects of the RealTime Lead Group service for us. Sometimes we’ll run communication campaigns using carefully selected marketing agencies to contact you on our behalf and so we’d have to give them your contact details. All third parties must to give us contractual commitments to only use your information in connection with RealTime Lead Group. If any of them want to put you on their own mailing lists, they need your specific agreement and they should let you review their own privacy policy.
