We use cookies on this website. A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

USING YOUR PERSONAL DATA

GDPR lawful bases we use for sales and marketing

Under the GDPR there are six lawful bases under which businesses can collect, use, and store personal data. Net Zero Week Ltd has identified three which we rely upon for our social mission: Contractual, Legitimate Interests and Consent.

Contractual

In many circumstances Net Zero Week Ltd rely on the lawful basis of performing a contract. This enables us to respond to you when you express an interest in our activities and to fulfil any requests or works.

Legitimate Interests

Some of our activities use our legitimate business and social mission interests to collect and use your personal data. In such cases, Net Zero Week Ltd has taken into consideration our commercial interests, societal mission-based benefits, and your interests. We do not believe our activities will have a negative impact on your privacy rights and freedoms. Net Zero Week Ltd also relies on Legitimate Interests to:

  • Send you marketing communications about our mission
  • Send you marketing communications related to other company’s mission that Net Zero Week work with which we believe are important to society
  • Undertake business sales activities such as telemarketing
  • Use publicly available contact details such as credit agency data
  • Use social media data from our connections to contact you
  • Use contact details gathered from exhibitions, conferences, and other networking events we attend

Consent

Sometimes Net Zero Week Ltd will rely on your consent, where you actively agree.

Removal from databases

Net Zero Week Ltd will always offer you the choice to withdraw your consent or stop receiving marketing communications.
