How does RAD Science collect or obtains your information?
What personal information do we collect?
What are the legitimate interests we have for collecting/using your personal information?
The principal basis on which we collect and use your information is when you give us your affirmative consent. However, when you register for a RAD Science event RAD Science has a legitimate basis beyond consent to collect your personal information in order to provide you with the goods or services that you expect for us to deliver, which depends upon us having and using your personal information. Once you have a formal relationship with us, RAD Science also obtains a legitimate interest in providing you with timely information about upcoming events and/or products in which you may have an interest; so, to better serve you, we will market or promote those events/products to you. Thus, depending on the precise situation, RAD Science may rely on one of these legitimate bases in collecting your personal information.
How do we use your personal information?
RAD Science uses your personal information for administrative and business purposes particularly to contact you about RAD Science events, or to process purchases you make on our websites. We may also use personal information to send out industry surveys to improve our representation of the testing industry and to improve our websites, as well as for advertising and analytical purposes (e.g., monitoring/ analyzing visitors to the websites). Additionally, RAD Science permits you to access various social media networks through our websites (e.g., Twitter, LinkedIn). You need to be aware that if you decide to access such social media through the RAD Science websites, your information will be available to those services.
Disclosure of your personal information to third parties
. RAD Science discloses your personal information to the extent necessary to fulfill our obligations to you if you register to attend RAD Science events or other RAD Science-sponsored events. A related use of the personal information is to share that information with third-party sponsors, who are usually industry vendors that may contact you. RAD Science has found that in general this type of disclosure is appreciated by clients; however, we have adopted a policy that entitles you to consent to that disclosure in advance and/or to direct us not to include you in that sharing, as well as enabling you to withdraw that consent.
Do we sell personal information to third parties?
No, RAD Science will never sell your personal data to any third party that is unrelated to the organization.
How long will we retain your personal information?
RAD Science does not retain personal information longer than is necessary, taking into account any legal obligations we have (e.g., to maintain records for tax purposes), as well as any other legal basis we have for using your personal. Your information that we use for marketing purposes will be kept until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive this information
How do we secure your personal information?
RAD Science may use contractors and/or subcontractors who employ commercially available and generally accepted technical and organizational measures to protect personal data against loss, misuse, or alteration during its transmission, storage, and processing. RAD Science’s eventual processor of personal data is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. Moreover, only authorized RAD Science contractors are granted access to your personal information, and only where it is necessary to the conduct of their business operations on behalf of RAD Science. In reality, we note that no method of securing personal information transmitted over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, RAD Science cannot guarantee the absolute security of any personal information. If you have any questions about security on our websites, you can contact us.
Do we transfer your personal information outside of the European Economic Area?
What are your rights
? Your rights in relation to your personal information are to: (1) be informed about its use; (2) have access to your information; (3) correct your personal information; (4) have your personal information deleted; and (5) restrict how we use your personal information. You also have the right to have your personal information ported to others; however, because RAD Science’s use of your personal information is limited to individual registration for information and marketing activities related to the RAD Science, it is not technically feasible for RAD Science to honor such a request because we are not able to exchange that information with another entity with which we have no direct interface or any reason to exchange data. You are also entitled to know if RAD Science is using any automated decision-making (including profiling); RAD Science does not use any such automated technologies in the processing of your personal information.
