Gathering of Information

KGB is an organisation that gathers and stores a wide variety of personally identifiable information, some of which includes names, email addresses, phone numbers, payment information, social media accounts, and company addresses. The KGB obtains information either directly from people or via the firms that the persons’ parent employees work for. E-mails, phone conversations, online registration forms, event registration forms, and in-person encounters are all potential avenues via which the information might be gathered. KGB does not collect personally identifiable information about people, with the exception of situations in which there is a necessary necessity for doing legal business or where such information is supplied on a voluntary basis.

Users should also be informed that non-personal data and information may be automatically gathered through the normal procedure of KGB web servers, as well as through the use of cookies technology and/or the tracking of Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses. This information and data will not identify users personally and will only be used for internal purposes. Your web browser, the type of computer you use, the operating system, the companies who offer your internet access, and any other information that does not personally identify you might be considered non-personal identifying information.

The information that is gathered in this manner helps us to better develop and tailor our services to match your requirements and preferences, as well as to bring to your notice additional options for services, events, and networking.

The Reason Behind the Processing

KGB will use the personal data that has been obtained to provide you with information on the services provided to clients, to process and react to inquiries that have been received from the general public or other relevant stakeholders, and to get in touch with you to solicit your opinions. KGB may use statistical analysis of user behaviour and attributes to evaluate interest in and use of various portions of the website. These analyses may include using the website’s search functionality. The personal information that is stored by KGB may also be used in an aggregate form, which excludes any personal identifiers, in order to provide information to third parties, such as trends and outcomes, and to assist us in enhancing the functions and content of the website or other marketing materials.

If you or your parent business are already a client of KGB, opting out of receiving marketing emails from us will not prevent us from communicating with you in any other way. When your company starts doing business with KGB, you will automatically be signed up to get specific information that is associated with the organisation. We are obligated to provide you with this information as a result of a constitutional mandate.

You have the option to choose whether or not to engage in further communication with KGB, even if you are not currently or have never been one of our customers. We also obtain data through networking (for example, through the exchange of business cards), and if the information is pertinent, we add it to our data management system. For promotional purposes, we could on occasion purchase data that has been “opted in” (lists compiled by trustworthy service providers).

Data retention

The acquired personal information is kept in the Content Management System (CMS) of the KGB as well as other relevant data management systems, which may be paper-based or electronic. Any information that might potentially identify a user will not be shared with a third party without the user’s prior consent, and even then, only under very limited circumstances. The information will not be shared with any organisation that is situated outside of the EU. At certain intervals, we shall do the following:

  • Examine the amount of time for which we will retain your personal information.
  • When choosing whether (and for how long) to keep your personal data, one factor to take into consideration is the reason or purposes for which we currently have it.
  • Delete in a safe manner any information that is no longer required for the aforementioned goal or those goals.
  • If information becomes out of date, it should be updated, archived, or safely deleted.

Security

KGB takes appropriate precautions to protect any personally identifiable information it may possess. The safeguards that are put into place will be suitable to the different kinds of information that are stored, and they will be compliant with any and all applicable laws that regulate the protection of personal information. The availability, confidentiality, and integrity of the individual’s personal information are all protected by the measures that have been taken. We have taken the necessary precautions to protect your personal information from being inadvertently lost, misused or accessed in an unauthorised manner, changed, or disclosed by putting in place adequate security measures. In addition to this, we restrict access to your personal data to only those employees, contractors, and agents who have a genuine and pressing need to have access to such data in order to fulfil their job responsibilities. Your personal information will be processed by our employees, contractors, or agents in line with the instructions that we provide. They shall be held to a duty of secrecy and required to handle the personal data with the utmost care and attention to detail. We have established measures in place to deal with any considered breach of data security, and we will notify you and any relevant regulator of a suspected violation where we are legally obligated to do so. We have also set protocols in place to deal with any considered breach of data security. Employees of the KGB get training in data security and the safeguarding of information. Encryption technology known as Secure Socket Layer (also abbreviated as SSL) or Transport Layer Security (also abbreviated as TLS) will be implemented in certain sections of the KGB website. This will improve data privacy and help KGB avoid the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information it collects and stores.

Third-Parties

Links to Websites Operated by Other Parties

We may give connections to the websites of other parties when it is suitable to do so and exclusively for the legitimate business purposes of KGB. We may also provide adverts that incorporate links to the websites of third parties. Users of the website will find that these links are offered for their convenience.

This Privacy Policy does not extend to such other websites, nor does it cover how those other organisations use the information that you provide to them. Both the material that is shown on such sites and the steps, if any, that are taken by such sites to preserve the privacy of your information are outside of KGB’s control.

The KGB does not have any control over how those technologies are used.

Opt-Out

KGB maintains contact information on its clients and the wider business community in order to transmit information about our services and updates. This is done because KGB has legitimate commercial interests in doing so. In addition, KGB distributes promotional materials that promote its services, new clients, industry news, and other pertinent offers. On occasion, KGB will work in conjunction with other organisations and businesses in the industry to promote additional initiatives that may be of interest to KGB’s clientele as well as the general business community. KGB does not provide these organisations with any personally identifiable information in these circumstances; however, KGB may distribute the information of the organisation on their behalf to those individuals who may genuinely benefit from receiving such information or who have elected to receive such information. You have the option to opt out of receiving promotional materials if you do not want to do so. At the very bottom of each and every email sent out for marketing purposes will be a link labelled “unsubscribe.” You may also send KGB a written notification following the instructions outlined below. If your parent business has designated you as a relevant contact needed to receive information on its behalf, you are not permitted to decline to receive essential information that KGB is obligated to supply you in accordance with the contractual responsibilities that KGB has to its customers.

Social media

In order to better manage our interactions on social media, we may use technologies supplied by a third party, such as Hootsuite. Hootsuite may save the message if you submit it to us in a private or direct communication via social media. These direct messages, along with any other personally identifiable information, will not be distributed to any other organisations.
