Privacy Policy

This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for all products and services owned by InterGame Ltd (collectively referred to in this Privacy Statement as “we” or “InterGame”. We describe the type of information we collect from you and how we use it. We use our legitimate interests – the publication and distribution of industry related print and digital publications, processing of client data and the direct marketing of our publications, events and related services – as the lawful basis for processing your data.

WHAT DATA WE COLLECT & HOW WE USE IT

Here we explain how we process personal data that is provided by you and information collected automatically.

1. INFORMATION PROVIDED BY YOU:

TO RECEIVE OUR FREE PUBLICATIONS

When you subscribe online to our free publications we ask for a name, email and sector so we ensure you receive our publications and the news that is most relevant to you. There is an option to add further details online at your discretion. If you have passed our team a business card to subscribe we will hold the information provided in our databases. If you have provided us with a postal address we may send you free copies of our printed products. We may occasionally send you policy updates and news about how to be included in our publications. The data you supply may be used to help us segment our databases and to provide non-personally identifiable, readership profiles. We may share this composite information with current and potential advertisers and business partners to help them better understand our services. You can unsubscribe from our free digital publications by following the links on each digital mail or by following the instructions on posted copies. Alternatively, please email michelle@intergame.ltd.uk

WHEN YOU START TO BUY A PRINT SUBCRIPTION

When you have purchased a print subscription your personal data is used to send you the products you have purchased. It is also used for our internal administrative purposes, and to help us to serve customers better. As a print subscriber you automatically receive our e-publications so please be sure to also have read the section above. Your postal data is shared with a third party supplier only for the purposes of mailing. We will send you information on renewing your subscription before and after the expiry date. To amend or remove your data from InterGame ’s systems please email michelle@intergame.ltd.uk. If you have started but not completed the subscription process online we will contact you with reminders to alert you to the process not having been completed and may contact you regarding any issues including any problems processing payments. For more information on how we use your data read our Subscriber T&Cs.

WHEN YOU ARE AN ADVERTISER

As an advertiser you automatically receive our free digital and, where applicable, print publications for the period of your campaign to help you to monitor the product(s) you have purchased so please be sure to also have read the two sections above as they could both apply to you. You can remove your personal details from our digital and print publication distribution lists by following the link in our emails or emailing michelle@intergame.ltd.uk. If you change roles or companies we ask that you let us know. You can amend or ask to be removed from a company record at any time by emailing michelle@intergame.ltd.uk.

DIRECT MARKETING TO BUSINESS CONTACTS

InterGame may have contacted you with information on how our publications could help to promote your brand or about how a subscription could benefit you or free trials of our products. We only contact you if we think you might be interested in reading our free publications and finding out more about our products because, for example, you have passed us a business card. You can opt out of any communications by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email campaign sent or by letting our sales or editorial teams know you would rather not be contacted. To amend, rectify, or remove a contact from any of our mailing lists please email michelle@intergame.ltd.uk

EDITORIAL OPPORTUNITIES

As a publisher InterGame collects and stores editorial information that could include personal information. Any press releases, articles, letters to the editor, blogs or similar requests sent into InterGame ’s teams may be published in our digital and/ or print publications and associated social media accounts. Press releases may be edited prior to publication. Publication of information, in part or full, is completely at the discretion of InterGame. InterGame may contact people who have passed InterGame their contact details because they are interested in being included in our publications. The details of each communication will be kept as long as needed for journalistic purposes and then securely deleted. We will also add contacts provided within editorial requests to our database and send you relevant free industry publications so you can track your coverage. You can unsubscribe from any email by following the link at the bottom of each email or by emailing michelle@intergame.ltd.uk.

WHEN YOU HAVE REGISTERED FOR OUR DIRECTORY

You can submit your company information online for publication in our Directory, which may be made public online and offline and be distributed in both print and digital format. The inclusion of details submitted for our Directory is entirely at the discretion of InterGame Ltd. As a Directory registrant you receive an automatic free subscription for our e-publications and may be contacted by our sales team to see if you are interested in upgrading your listing or our other products. For more information see our Directory T&Cs.

WHEN YOU HAVE CONTACTED US

We have features where users can submit information to us by email or by contact forms. Requests for service, support or information may be forwarded as needed to best respond to a specific request. We may retain emails and other information sent to us for our internal administrative purposes and to help us to serve customers better.

WHEN YOU HAVE ENGAGED WITH OUR INTERACTIVE FEATURES & SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS

Some of InterGame Ltd ’s websites and social media sites may offer interactive and community features such as discussion boards, webcasts, blogs and user profiles.

InterGame publishes industry jobs. Any contact information you submit regarding a job or classified advert may be published online by InterGame.
