USE OF THIS WEBSITE
WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT
CVOX collects data about you that is limited to the kind of information that can be found on a typical business card: first name, last name, job title, function, level, employer/company name, type of company, work address, work email, work phone number, country. In some cases, we may ask you to provide additional professional information such as the size of the company you work for, and industry type or specific preferences, e.g. language, interests, hobbies.
To enhance and/or update the information that you have provided to us, we may combine it with professional information or personal data that we collect from third party sources. The personal data that we refer to in this document is the personal and professional information you provide, as well as information that we obtain from third party sources, both of which we typically combine as one user record.
This Website also collects and stores certain information automatically using cookies and similar technologies, including IP addresses, the region or general location of a computer or device accessing the internet, browser type, operating system, page view history, and other usage information.
Cookies are small text files that can be stored on your computer, tablet or mobile device (“Computer”) when you visit a website. A cookie will typically contain the name of the originating domain, the lifetime of the cookie, and a randomly generated unique number or other value. Cookies used by CVOX identify you as a unique user by means of a tracking ID. The cookie itself is anonymous and does not contain any personal data, except when such information has been supplied by you, such as when you provide your name and email address when completing a registration form.
We request your consent before we use any cookies except strictly necessary cookies and we provide accurate and specific information about the data each cookie tracks and its purpose in plain language before consent is received. We make it as easy for you to withdraw your consent as it was for you to give your consent in the first place.
HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION
We may collect your personal data when you register to receive any of the products, content or services offered by CVOX or its third party sponsors such as publications, subscriptions, contests, newsletters, memberships, premium content, webcasts, podcasts, events, digital conferences, video, white papers, online seminars, conferences and events.
Necessity of personal data
In order for us to provide the products, content or services you request, we need your personal data. Therefore, if you do not provide such personal data, we cannot deliver the products, content or services.
This Website is one of many that CVOX and its group of affiliates operates, all of which we collectively refer to as the CVOX Network. Where permitted by law, we may share the personal data we collect about you with another CVOX Network company so that we can provide you with information about products, content and services that might interest you, and for internal analytical and business development purposes.
HOW DO WE SAFEGUARD YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We maintain safeguards which include technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorized use, access, inadvertent disclosure, alteration, and destruction, and we require the third parties we contract with to support CVOX’s business operations to employ reasonable security measures as well (see “When and how we share your personal data with others” below).
To communicate with you
We may use your personal data to send you important notices, such as communications about your registration, transactions, and changes to CVOX’s terms, conditions, policies, and/or other internal purposes.
To deliver what you request
We may use your personal data to provide the products, content or services you request. If you enter a sweepstake, contest, or similar CVOX promotion, we may use your personal data to administer such promotion.
To improve our service
We may use your personal data for auditing, data analysis, and research to improve CVOX’s products, content and services.
To present offers that may be of interest to you
We may contact you to offer you additional CVOX or third-party products, content or services that may be of interest to you.
THE LEGAL BASIS WE HAVE FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
CVOX uses the personal data you provide to supply you with high-quality products, content and services that you request, to send important notices, and for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about our products, content and services. We may also use your personal data to offer you products, content or services that may be of interest to you, based upon your interests or the preferences you shared with us, and we may share your personal data with third party sponsors of content, events, and other business services or offers.
The legal basis for processing your personal data is your consent. In certain circumstances we may otherwise process your personal data if CVOX has a legitimate interest in doing so and CVOX is not infringing any of your rights and freedoms. When CVOX processes your personal data for CVOX’s legitimate reasons, CVOX will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under data protection and any other relevant law. Our legitimate business interests do not override your interests. CVOX will not use your personal data in circumstances where your rights and freedoms override our legitimate interests, unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted by law.
WHEN AND HOW WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA WITH OTHERS
CVOX may share your personal data to deliver content and services from our sites, affiliated companies and third parties’ services that might interest you, including sponsored content and events, for business operations, and to comply with valid U.S. legal processes.
For content and services that may interest you or that you request as we mentioned above, your personal data may be shared within the CVOX Network to provide you with information about products, content and services that might interest you and for internal analytical and business development purposes (see “CVOX Network” above). We may also share your personal data with third parties to deliver third party sponsored content or other services that you request (see “For third party sponsored content and events” below).

CVOX partners with third party sponsors to make available a large library of content to our users, such as white papers, professional events (live or online), as well as other business services or offers. In return for access to such offers, we may ask you to provide us with personal data as part of the registration.
For appropriate legal reasons
Your personal data may be shared when authorized by law or as necessary to comply with a valid legal process such as to respond to requests from public and government authorities, including those outside your country of residence, enforce our terms and conditions, protect our operations, protect our rights, privacy, safety or property, to allow us to pursue available remedies or limit damages we, or other third parties, may sustain.
