The rules for e-mailing employees of Public Bodies and Companies are governed by the PECR (Privacy and Electronic Communication Regulations).  Under PECR the rules on consent, the soft opt-in and the right to opt out do not apply to electronic marketing messages sent to ‘corporate subscribers’ which means companies and other corporate bodies eg limited liability partnerships, Scottish partnerships, and government bodies. The only requirement is that the sender must identify itself and provide contact details. 

When you access our website to access information, either directly or in response to an email from us, we do not automatically collect any information about you. We may track which pages you visit and record how long you spend on each page. Should you download any reports, white papers, case studies or similar assets we will ask for your name, organisation name, job title, work telephone number and email address.

Why we collect this information

We will use your name, organisation name, job title and email address to screen out ‘spam’ requests for information, to send you our report, case study, white paper or newsletter, to record how many requests have been made for different publications and in order to check how useful the information was to you and whether there is other information that would be helpful. Tracking your pattern of access to this website is to help us to improve access and does not involve your personal details.
