Privacy Policy

Informi is a trademark of AAT. Informi carries a firm commitment to the privacy of your personal data.

This privacy policy describes the information we collect through this website (, and:

  • What we do with it
  • Who we share parts of it with
  • The information we collect and how we use it.

We believe it is essential to respect the privacy of all visitors and to make safe and ethical use of the information provided to the website. We aim to give you as much control as possible over the information you give us, and in all cases the disclosure of your personal details is voluntary.

Where we ask for information we do so in order to offer you better services, both on the website and in the rest of our operations.

Some of the information you give will be held in databases: we will ensure that these are highly secure and can only be accessed by authorised people. Any information that is stored in the UK will comply with the Data Protection Act 1998. Any mailing information that is stored in the US will comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield framework.

We will ask for your email address to:

  • Set up your Informi account
  • Update you with information and newsletters
  • Send you occasional invitations to participate in surveys to help us enhance and improve our service.

You can change your email address or choose not to receive further information at any time.

Who will have access to the information

Any information you give will be available to Informi. We will only share your email address with select parties we commission to undertake research on our behalf and with your prior consent.

Information you give in response to surveys and questionnaires on the website will be used in two ways:

  • By Informi itself to help determine policy and to help improve its services to members
  • By third parties that Informi may make the information available for market research - in this case, the information will be made available only in the form of anonymous qualitative and statistical reports.
  • We may follow up some survey responses by phone or email, but only where you have given your permission for us to do so as part of the initial research.
