Privacy Policy

NSI is committed to protecting your personal information and respecting your privacy and rights when it comes to information processing. NSI commits to maintaining compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and any associated data protection regulations that come into force as and when required. This Privacy Notice tells you what to expect when NSI collects your personal information, and details your rights as an individual to control how your personal information is processed.

Collection of Personal Information

When you access and browse our NSI Summit website (including when you register to attend by completing the registration form on our website) and when you correspond with us by phone or email, you may give us information about yourself. This information can include your name, postal address, email address, landline and/or mobile telephone number, and information about your employment (including your job title, responsibilities and employer's details) as well as other personal information.

With regard to each of your visits to our website(s), we may also collect the following information:

  • technical information, including the Internet protocol(IP) address used to connect your computer to the internet, your login information, browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating systems and platforms; and
  • information about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstreams to, through and from our websites, information you viewed or searched for, page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks and mouse-overs), methods used to browse away from that page and any phone number used to call us.

How we use your information

Where NSI collects personal data such as your name, postal address or e-mail address, then this information is used exclusively by NSI for providing the services requested or for controlling access to restricted areas. By completing the Summit registration form you are consenting to NSI processing your personal data as described in this Privacy Policy. NSI will only pass your personal data to relevant third party organisations or individuals with your explicit consent or where necessary for the purposes of registration and/or relevant NSI Summit communication, or unless specifically compelled to do so by law or court order, or other legitimate reason. The data that we collect from you will be processed and managed by a third party supplier operating under direct instruction from NSI. Your data will not be used by our supplier for any purpose other than that specified by NSI.

Contact details of individuals who attend the NSI Summit may be shared with exhibitors and sponsors following the Summit, subject to consent having been given during the registration process.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Public Website Areas

You can visit the NSI Summit website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself, except where you voluntarily choose to give us your personal details via the registration process. When you register to attend the NSI Summit you will be offered a choice as to whether or not you would like your details to be shared with exhibitors and sponsors. By completing the registration process you are consenting to receiving e-mail communications regarding the NSI Summit to keep you informed about exhibitors, speakers, the event programme, travel information and other information related to the NSI Summit. The aim of these communications is to ensure you are fully informed about the event so you may use the opportunity to its full benefit. If you prefer not to receive communications regarding the NSI Summit you may unsubscribe at any time.
