Company Connecting Privacy Policy

Who We are

At Company Connecting we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors to our web site. In particularly, we want you to know that Company Connecting is not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes.

We do help companies and organisations collaborate with one another. We will do this by contacting you directly and asking if we can connect you with another person or company.

What we collect

Companies and people can register with Company Connecting. On registering you will be asked to provide an

  • e-mail address
  • Username

These are the only two pieces of information that we require, and we advise all registered users to use an anonymised username, and where possible a generic e-mail such as info@. If you provide us with a non-generic e-mail, you are giving us explicit permission to use it to contact you. (The website will have a check box for you to tick, to provide us with this permission)

If you are an IT, telecoms or tech company we also ask for the following pieces off information:

  • Company Name
  • Website

This is to enable us to provide you with access to update your company details

Once registered, you can also enter the following optional pieces of information

  • Company Role
  • Name
  • Phone
  • LinkedIn details
  • Image

 

What we do with the information we gather

We require the e-mail address and username for:

  • managing access to the search facility on our database
  • managing access to update their company profile
  • maintaining the security of our database

We use the optionally supplied information to connect you with another person or company where there is a potential common interest. We will do this by contacting you personally via e-mail or LinkedIn and asking if we can connect you with the person or company.

Our use of cookies

We use analytics cookies to collect information on website activity (such as the number of users who visit our website, the date and time of visits, the number of pages viewed, navigation patterns, what country and what systems users have used to access the site and, when entering our website from another website, the address of that web site).

Google Analytics

When someone visits www.companyconnectingg.com we use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Mailing Lists

As part of the registration process described above we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don't rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our occasional newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer Janice Grant Shaw      

Access to your personal information

You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to our data protection officer Janice Grant Shaw at support@companyconnecting.com
