If you believe our Website has collected excessive information about you, please contact us to raise any concerns.

7. Security of personal information
We have implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. Only authorised persons are provided access to personally identifiable information collected via the Website; such individuals have agreed to maintain the confidentiality of this information.
Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal data, the transmission of data over the internet (including by e-mail) is never completely secure. We endeavour to protect personal data, but we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to or by us.
8. Transfers of personal information
8.1. Transfers of personal information
As Innovayt is a multinational network, with Member Firms in various European countries, your personal information may be transferred to and stored outside the country where you are located. Our network does not currently include countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or countries that do not have laws that provide specific protection for personal information, but we cannot assure that data in transit is only transferred through connections in EEA countries. Where we collect your personal information within the EEA, transfers outside the EEA will be only:
- to a recipient located in a country which provides an adequate level of protection for your personal information; and/or
- under an agreement which satisfies EU requirements for the transfer of personal data to data processors or data controllers outside the EEA, such as standard contractual clauses approved by theEuropean Commission.
We may transfer or disclose the personal data we collect to Innovayt Member Firms and to their third-party contractors, subcontractors, and/or their subsidiaries and affiliates. When we transfer personal data, we do so for the purposes for which the information has been submitted, for the purposes listed above under Use of Personal Information, for the administration and maintenance of the Website and associated systems, and/or other internal or administrative purposes. We also may transfer personal data to third party service providers of identity management, website hosting and management, data analysis, data backup, security and storage services.
The third-party providers may use their own third-party subcontractors that have access to personal data (sub-processors). It is our policy to use only third-party providers that are bound to maintain appropriate levels of security and confidentiality, to process personal information only as instructed by Innovayt, and to flow those same obligations down to their sub-processors.
We may also disclose personal information to third parties under the following circumstances:
- when explicitly requested by you;
- when required to deliver quotes, program descriptions or other reference materials as requested by you;
- when required to facilitate conferences or events hosted by us or a third party;
- for regulatory compliance purposes; and/or
We may also disclose your personal information to law enforcement, regulatory and other government agencies and to professional bodies and other third parties, as required by and/or in accordance with applicable law or regulation. This includes disclosures outside the country where you are located. Innovayt may also review and use your personal information to determine whether disclosure is required or permitted.
9. Retention of personal information
Where we are legally required to obtain your explicit consent to provide you with marketing materials, we will only provide you with such marketing materials if you have provided consent for us to do so.
If you opt into any subscriptions, you will receive automated emails when content is updated. If you opt into any newsletters, you will receive curated emails known as newsletters. If you select any preferences such as issues, topics, subjects or industries, you may receive email communications related to those self-selected topics.
If you submit to us a project idea, we may also contact you with email and marketing communications about subjects that we believe may be of interest to you. We may send emails and marketing communications on our own or in conjunction with another organisation with which we have entered into a collaboration arrangement (e.g. governmental agencies that promote and support the participation of national enterprises in R&D and innovation programs).
If you want to unsubscribe from any communications from Innovayt, you should look for and follow the instructions we have provided in the relevant communications to you. If you do not wish to receive emails or marketing communications from us, you can at any time contact us to request that such communications cease. If you wish to no longer receive only certain communications, please identify such communications in your request. If you choose to unsubscribe from any or all mailings, we may retain information sufficient to identify you so that we can honour your request.
12. Access to data
We are committed to providing reasonable and practical access that allows visitors to the Website to identify and correct any inaccuracies in the information we collect about them.
When we keep personally identifiable information about you, we are responsible for keeping an accurate record of the information that you have submitted to us and verified. We do not assume responsibility for verifying the ongoing accuracy of your personal information.
If you have questions about the accuracy of identifying information you previously submitted to Innovayt, or want to have outdated information removed, please contact us. When requested, and provided that it is practical and commercially feasible to comply with the request and there is no legal or regulatory need for us to keep the information, we will delete identifying information from current operational systems.
13. Rights in relation to your information
You may have certain rights under your local law in relation to the personal information we hold about you. In particular, you may have a right to:
- request a copy of personal information we hold about you;
- ask that we update the personal information we hold about you, or correct such personal information that you think is incorrect or incomplete;
- ask that we delete personal information that we hold about you, or restrict the way in which we use such personal information;
