Your information

The information we collect is held for two reasons: firstly, to provide the required service levels expected of a provider to you and second, to provide you with notifications, news, and alerts specific to your interests.

Information you voluntarily provide to us

When you sign up for and use our services, consult with our team, send us an email, or communicate with us in any way, you are voluntarily giving us information that we collect.

We will not pass your contact details to other organisations unless you agree.

Our lawful basis for processing your data

It is in Executive Compass’s legitimate business interest to keep its customers and contacts informed of our latest content, activity, and services and to provide them with information about upcoming opportunities.

We process customer and client data and use direct marketing as part of this legitimate interest. It is necessary for us to use a variety of direct marketing channels and messages to ensure our contacts are kept informed, and wherever possible we make sure the messages we send are targeted and relevant. Any direct marketing that we undertake complies with e-privacy rules on consent.

We will keep your data safely and securely for as long as necessary or according to your instructions, and we review the data we hold at least once every two years. If you would like more information about how we store your data, please contact us directly.

In particular, you could expect to receive from us:

  1. Electronic notifications for public sector opportunities within your region / sector that may be of interest.
  2. Emails to promote use of our services. Wherever calls to action will lead to being added to a distribution list or contacted it will be clearly stated and you can opt out at any time.
  3. An electronic copy of our monthly newsletter to be kept up to date with Executive Compass news.
  4. Electronic alert messages. For example, we may notify you of a change of contact details.
