Collection and use of client information

This information includes names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses and other limited personal data. This information is used to process and complete their registration to one of our clients’ Press Trips, FAM Trips or Industry Events.
Registration forms are stored for a period of six months after which they are deleted. Registration forms are shared only and exclusively with the specific client hosting the FAM /Press Trip or event.
In the instance where we have collated consumer data, via a business to consumer activation, we would have had consent for doing so and will store this data for a period of 18 months when we will refresh this
