Taylor & Francis Group Customer Privacy Notice
This Privacy Notice is designed to allow the Data Subject (“you”) to make an informed choice. It covers the information practices by which Taylor & Francis Group (“Taylor & Francis”, “the Company”, “we”, “our” or “us”) collects, uses, shares and secures the personal information.
If you have any requests concerning your personal information or any queries about these practices, please contact us by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can write to: Compliance Officer, Taylor & Francis Group, 4 Park Square, Milton Park, Abingdon, OX14 4RN, UK.
For purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998, the data controller is: Informa Group PLC, 5 Howick Place, London SW1P 1WG, UK.
We collect personal information from you, such as full name, country, job title, occupation, company information, e-mail address and telephone number, and if you make a purchase we will also collect payment information (including credit/debit card number) and billing address.
In addition, from time to time we also collect the e-mail addresses and additional contact details of those who communicate with us via e-mail and request information. We may also have acquired your personal information from a third party data service or publicly available data source.
Use of Personal Data
The Personal Data we collect is used to provide you with the service or subscription that you have requested or to respond to an enquiry that you have made. We use certain third party service providers to assist us in providing these services to you, for example, recruitment, abstracting and indexing, author services, email marketing, web casting, order processing and hosting.
If you inform us of any interests when you register on our Company Websites, then we may contact you with information in relation to those interests.
We may also use your information to send you newsletters, subscriptions, offers, other marketing emails or surveys. Survey information will be used for market research with the aim of improving our services. Participation in surveys and discussion forums is entirely voluntary.
Opt-out or unsubscribe
You may unsubscribe from being contacted for these purposes at any time. If you want to limit how we contact you or cease participation in any of our marketing events, then please contact us via email at: email@example.com. Alternatively, please write to us at Taylor & Francis Group, 4 Park Square, Milton Park, Abingdon, OX14 4RN, UK.
We use several technologies and operational procedures to protect data submitted to us by you. Physical security of data on our equipment is provided by a combination of firewalls and password protection. Provided your browser accepts Secure Sockets Layer encryption, we seek to protect your payment information against unauthorised access through a secure server. Where we use third parties to process personal information, we require them to ensure the safety of your information. We use appropriate security measures on our own systems, but the internet is not a secure medium and we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted via the internet.
Transfer of Data
We (or our third-party service providers) may process your Personal Data in other countries, whose data protection laws may not be as extensive as in the European Economic Area. However, we have taken appropriate steps to ensure the same level of protection for the processing carried out in those countries as within the European Economic Area.
Disclosure of Data
We will never sell your personal information without your explicit consent to do so. We may disclose and share personal information with our group companies or any entity which acquires any part of our business, with our service providers, distributors/agents of our products, suppliers who develop or host our sites, with third-party search engines that may index user profile pages and usernames as part of the URL of the user profile page by default, if required or permitted by law, if we reasonably believe you may be in breach of the law (e.g. if you have posted defamatory content on our sites) and with other third parties with your consent.
Responsibility with You
You should be aware that when you disclose personal information on any public bulletin board or chat areas on one of our Company Websites, such personal information can be collected and used by anyone who views that website and may result in unsolicited messages from other participants or other parties. We are not responsible for any such messages.
Our Company Websites contains links to other websites, including without limitation those websites of other companies within the wider Informa PLC group. Their inclusion cannot be taken to imply any endorsement or validation by us of the content of the said websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices, nor do we accept any liability about the content of such websites including those of our group companies which have their own privacy policies tailored for the business practices and sectors in which they operate.
Changes/Updates to Privacy Notice
We may update this Privacy Notice from time to time to keep up with changing legislation and best practice. We will always include the date of a new version so that you know when there has been a change. If you don’t agree to the changes, please don’t continue to use our Company Websites or provide us with your personal information.
If you have any questions about this Privacy Notice or the data we hold about you, or you wish to ensure that the data we hold about you is accurate and kept up to date, please do not hesitate to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, please write to:
Compliance Officer, Taylor & Francis Group, 4 Park Square, Milton Park, Abingdon, OX14 4RN, UK
