Data we collect and process
We only process the minimum amount of personal data necessary for the purpose for which it is collected. In running and operating this website we may collect and process certain data and information relating to you and your use of this site in the following ways:

Information you give us
This is information about you that you give us by corresponding with us by phone, e-mail, when you register for our events, attending our events or otherwise.  The information you give us may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, financial, or other identification documents.

Information we collect about you
Depending on the circumstances, we might also obtain personal data about you from other sources such as public registers, business partners and service providers such as Linkedin.

Lumenia may also acquire your professional contact details, such as your name, your role, organisation name, postal address, phone number and email from the Oliver Searle Partnership Limited (“Oliver Searle Partnership”) with whom you agree to receive correspondence from us.

How we use your data
We gather and use your information to:

  • Allow us to provide you with the services you request from us;
  • Notify you of changes to our services or events;
  • Allow you to participate in events organised by us;
  • Provide you with information about other services we offer that are similar to those you have already requested of us or enquired about;
  • Contact you to provide you with information about our services that we feel you would benefit from and have an interest in. We rely on your consent provided to the Oliver Searle Partnership to enable us to contact you in this regard; or
  • Comply with legal obligations to which we may be subject.

Our legal basis to process your personal data
We rely on the following legal basis to process your personal data:

  1. Performance of a contract: Lumenia will process your Personal Data to the extent required to provide you with the requested service(s) and access to our events.
  2. Legitimate Interests: After completing a Legitimate Interest Assessment (“LIA”), we have come to the conclusion that the requirement to process your personal data to provide you with services and access to our events, as well as contacting you regarding our events that we think may be of interest to you is not overridden by your rights and fundamental freedoms. We have concluded that there is a minimal risk of affecting your fundamental rights and freedoms by processing your personal data. If you would like to request a copy of our LIA, you can do so by contacting our Data Protection Champion.
  3. In compliance with legal obligations: Lumenia will process your Personal Data for the purpose of undertaking investigations and providing information to legal authorities  and any other person charged with the detection, investigation or prosecution of offences.

Contractual Obligation to provide personal data and consequences for failing to do so
To allow Lumenia to provide services to you and for you to attend Lumenia’s events, it is necessary for you to provide Lumenia with your personal data. If you do not provide Lumenia with your personal data required to register for the event, you will not be in a position to attend the event.

Who we share your data with
Your personal data may be disclosed internally when passed from one department to another in accordance with the data protection principles and this Notice.  Personal data is not passed to any internal department or any individual that does not reasonably require access to that personal data with respect to the purpose(s) for which it was collected and is being processed.

We will not sell, rent or otherwise disclose your personal information to any third party without your consent except in the following circumstances:

  1. ERP Vendors directly involved in supporting the event: By registering for the ERP HEADtoHEAD™ event we share your personal data, (which you provide to us at the point of registering for the event) which includes your name, business title, organisation address and website, business email address, business telephone number and the date of attendance at the event with the ERP Vendors directly involved in supporting the event. The ERP Vendors may use this data in their marketing campaigns, including e-mail marketing campaigns and only under the terms of our Data Sharing Agreement which we have with all ERP Vendors. The ERP Vendors are also bound by their own privacy policies to which you may also be given the opportunity to accept or decline. We also share vendor score data that you provide to us at the event and the sessions that you attend with the relevant ERP Vendors.
  2. Trusted third-party providers:  Where we use or partner with trusted third-party providers to provide services for us, including, for example, the delivery and processing of any necessary marketing materials for the purposes of the event and other IT and operational services. These companies will have access to only the personal data needed to perform their specific functions and not for any other purposes. They are bound by Data processing agreements as well as their own privacy policies.
    The virtual event platform will be managed by our event partner Outsourced Events in conjunction with CrowdComms. To gain access to the event platform you will need to agree to their Terms & Conditions.
  3. Legal advisors: We may disclose or share our data with our legal advisors in order to enforce or apply our general Terms and Conditions or where same is necessary for the defence of legal claims.

Lumenia may provide information, in response to properly made requests, for the purpose of the prevention and detection of crime, and the apprehension or prosecution of offenders.  It may also provide information for the purpose of safeguarding national security.  In the case of any such disclosure, we will do so only in accordance with the Legislation.

Lumenia may also provide information when required to do so by law, for example under a court order.

Whenever Lumenia discloses information to third parties, Lumenia will only disclose that amount of personal data that is necessary. Third parties that receive Personal Data from Lumenia must satisfy Lumenia as to the measures taken to protect and keep it secure.

Appropriate measures will be taken to ensure that all such disclosures or transfers of personal data to third parties will be completed in a secure manner and pursuant to contractual safeguards.

Data transfers outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”)
Countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) are required to have a similar standard of protection of personal data.  This is not always the case outside that area.  Apart from the UK, we do not transfer data outside the EEA, but in the event that we do, before doing so, we will take steps to ensure that there is adequate protection, as required by the Legislation. Data transfers to the UK are made subject to Article FINPROV.10A: Interim provision for transmission of personal data to the United Kingdom of the Trade and Co-operation Agreement between the EU and UK. This allows for the free flow of data from the EU to the UK, pending the implementation of adequacy decisions in relation to the UK to be adopted by the EU under Article 36(3) of Directive (EU) 2016/680 and under Article 45(3) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679.

Data security
We take our data security responsibilities seriously, employing the most appropriate technical and organisational measures so as to avoid the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information by means of the internet, including through e-mail, 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 or from us by means of e-mail and any such transmission is at your own risk.

Data retention
It is our aim to only hold your data for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which it was gathered. In certain circumstances there may be legal requirements to keep data for a minimum period of time. We may store it for a longer period if so required for example, by applicable laws, regulators, payment protection, law enforcement or for secure archiving. In any case of longer storage by us, the terms of this privacy notice will continue to apply. Unless specific legal requirements dictate otherwise, Lumenia will retain information no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data was collected or for which they are further processed.
