When you access our website, or use any of our services, we (including companies we work with) may place small data files on your computer or other device known as cookies.

We use a web application framework on the Marketing Procurement iQ site, and this uses its own cookies to be able to operate.

How we use the information we collect

Provide the service to you;

  • Carry out internal administration and analysis;
  • To help us to improve the services we offer;
  • To provide personalised services unique to individual users;
  • To use anonymous details about our users to sell appropriate advertising space on the site. This might mean showing an advertiser how many users we have on the site; it does not mean sharing an individual’s details with an advertiser. Where we collect registration information from an individual, we will never share that individual’s information with a third party, including an advertiser, without that user’s explicit permission.

How we use the information for marketing
We will only send you direct marketing communications in circumstances where we have your specific consent or where we believe we can demonstrate a legitimate interest.

When you sign up to any of our services, we ask for your consent to send you direct marketing communication over a variety of channels. We will honour your right to withdraw your consent at any time.

We will always provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of this when you provide your information to us.

How we share information with third parties
Whenever a user requests a page on our website, IP address, browser, version and operating system are stored in a log file. This information is only used for statistical purposes to help improve this site and provide accurate statistics to advertisers in the form of aggregated data.

We will not sell or rent your information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your consent.

However, just like most service providers, Marketing Procurement iQ works with third parties who administer important functions for us that allow us to offer and enhance the services we provide e.g. a payment gateway to repeat subscription billings.

We reserve the right to disclose to third parties your information to comply with applicable laws including but not limited to disclosure in accordance with the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 and lawful authority requests, to safeguard the proper operation of our systems and to protect ourselves and the companies we work with. 

Information security
Marketing Procurement iQ  is committed to handling your information with high standards of information security. We collect, store and process your information on servers primarily located in the United Kingdom but also elsewhere in the European Economic Area. We use safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files and we authorise access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfil their job responsibilities. Our site uses industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of information during transmissions to our servers. These security measures mean that we may occasionally have to ask you for proof of identity before we are able to disclose personal information to you.
