Contact details, including names, titles, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses; technical areas of specialism and interest; geographical location.

How do we collect data?

How do we use your data?

If your personal data is to be shared with any other third parties, we will take steps to protect your personal data.

Why do we collect data?

We will not process your personal data unless we have a legal basis for doing so. There are four main legal bases that we rely on when it comes to processing someone personal data. These are:

  • "Legitimate interest": this is where we need to process your personal data, for example, if we need to contact you because you have raised a general query with us or where we are in contact with you about this or similar issues, or, in terms of your IP address and any information gathered via "cookies", to aid your use and navigation of our website ( or any microsites or IPE Group links on our web. We may also have a legitimate interest to contact you about services that may be of interest to you as part of our marketing campaigns, in accordance with this Policy.
  • "Necessary for performing a contract": this is where if we are in a contract with you (or about to enter into a contract with you and you have requested certain pre-contract details) and we need to use your personal details to complete this contract - for example, we might need to use your e-mail address to communicate with you.
  • "Consent": this is where we set out specific circumstances where we want to process your personal data and request your consent for this. We will make sure that your consent is explicit. 
  • "Compliance with a legal obligation: this is where we might need to process your personal data to comply with a common law or statutory obligation, such as disclosures for compliance with statutory requirements, requirements relating to money laundering or other such disclosures. We will only process your personal data for this reason if it is necessary and we would not otherwise be able to comply with that legal obligation without such processing.

We may also undertake light-touch marketing to you on the basis that we have legitimate interests to market our business and we may have identified you, or your organisation, as interested in further correspondence or business. For example, if you have attended a webinar, we may contact you to tell you about upcoming related webinars. If you wish to unsubscribe from receiving such marketing communications, please contact

How do we ensure the security of your data?

Personal information may be collected via Microsoft Forms and will be stored in electronic format on our Cloud-based SharePoint system; both tools are encrypted at rest and in transit. We take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse and loss, and unauthorised access, modification and disclosure, and any other interference. Personal information is destroyed or archived when no longer required. All employees are trained in data security. Confidential data is stored in a restricted access part of our SharePoint system.
