What do we collect
We further detail it below in accordance with Californian privacy requirements:
Please note that you can also opt out of tracking by certain third parties through the mechanisms at https://youradchoices.com and https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices.
As a California resident, you have the right:
- To request access to the personal information we have about you;
- To request that we delete personal information about you;
- To opt-out of our use, transfer, exchange or disclosure (including to third parties) of personal information about you;
- Not to be discriminated against based upon whether you decide to opt-out.
To exercise the access, deletion, and opt-out rights described above, please submit a verifable consumer request to us by either:
You have the right to request that Informa disclose to you what information it collects, uses, discloses, and sells. You also have the right to request that a business delete any personal information about you which the business has collected about you.
Please note for your protection, any request sent to Informa will be subject to the following verification procedure requiring you to provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably identify you are the person about whom we collected personal information including details of products/services you have previously taken with us and also we will ask you to provide some evidence that you are a California resident (e.g utility bill). We reserve the right to deny your request if we cannot verify your identify. Where we deny your request in whole or in part, we will endeavor to inform you of the denial, provide an explanation of our actions, and provide the reasons for the denial.
You have the right to direct Informa to not sell your information. To exercise this right to opt-out of the sale of personal information, please click here: Do Not Sell My Personal Information.
Informa shall not discriminate against you for exercising any of your above rights. Please note we will continue to communicate with you directly and send you information about your product/service and promotional materials that may be relevant to you.
You may designate an authorized agent to make a request to exercise your rights on your behalf. Your authorized agent must be able to provide to Informa proof that you have authorized the agent to act on your behalf. For your protection, we reserve the right to deny any request from an agent who does not submit proof that they have been authorized to act on your behalf.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
