CGLN (“We”) is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This policy (together with our terms and conditions and any other documents referred to on it) sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.
1. Data we may collect from you
We may collect and process the following personal data about you:

Within the Membership Portal, Named Members have control of editing the following Profile data:
Profile summary (About yourself)
First and last name
Area of interest
Country in which you are based
As a Named Member your Profile is by default set as Hidden meaning you will not appear on the Membership Directory. You have the option to make your Profile available to the Directory – this is advised to maximise from the benefits of CGLN.
Within your Profile, you are also able to turn on the Private Messaging functionality so other Members can contact you via the CGLN platform. This is also advised to maximize from the benefits of CGLN.
c) Financial data including credit card details
Card payments are not processed on a page controlled by us. We use an online payment service provider who encrypts your card details in a secure environment.
d) Technical data including, where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and pattern and does not identify any individual
e) Marketing and communications data including preferences in receiving marketing, attendance at events
f) Website usage data including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data and the resources that you access.

We may use your Identity and Profile data to form a view on what we think you may need or what you may be interested in.
You will receive marketing communications from us if you are a Member and if you have not already opted out of marketing. This is necessary for our legitimate interests to develop the CGLN and for you to get the most out of the network.
You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues. However, we would appreciate you contacting us in the first instance to deal with any concerns. We will respond to all legitimate requests within one month.
