The commercial purpose of the company is to provide information, education and insights and to facilitate information exchange between companies and investors, which in turn drives investment, innovation, progress, and economic growth and may create a source of revenues for the company. In order to do this, although we are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (and we do not give advice, information or promote ourselves to individual retail investors) we must first collect information from you via the registration pages on our websites in order to ensure compliance with Financial Conduct Authority rules, by categorising you as HNW, Sophisticated or Professional (if you are an investor); or as an Entrepreneur (if you are seeking investment); or otherwise as a professional investor or adviser. This information is held indefinitely in order that we are able to demonstrate regulatory compliance at any future date. In addition we may use these data in a non-attributable manner, for the purpose of research.
We use the information we have collected, to provide our services to you which includes: informing you by email about, and inviting you to participate as audience in, our current and evolving live and on-demand video content; analysing attendance, in order that we can connect fundraising companies to interested investors such as yourself where appropriate, as well as to provide supporting evidence of a return on investment in the case where we have been contracted by a partner, sponsor or client, to provide live or on-demand TV coverage of a partner or client event. Prior to sharing any data with third parties, we will in each case seek an undertaking that those data will be treated in accordance with the GDPR. It is however acknowledged that control or enforcement is out of our direct control.
