What data we collect
We collect some or all of the following personal data from you: the IP address or domain name of the computer you use to connect to our website, and information about your visit to our GNSS.asia website via Cookies (you’ll find more information on our Cookie use below). In addition, if you register for our matchmaking services and/or newsletter via this website, we will collect the information you provide in the registration form(s), including your name and email address and the name of the company you are representing.
A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded onto ‘terminal equipment’ (e.g. a computer or smartphone) when you access a website. It allows the website to recognise that user’s device and store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions. Most browsers support Cookies, but you can set your preferences to decline them and delete them whenever you like.
Why we collect your personal data
We process your data to improve your experience on our website, to share information with you via the GNSS.asia newsletter and to provide you with the GNSS.asia support services (if you apply for these via the registration forms). In addition, should you select to be included in our industry database, a subset of your data will also be included in our on-line searchable industry database.
On what basis we collect your personal data
We process your data on the basis of your consent, and also the legal and financial audit requirements imposed on us by, for example, the European Commission.
How we process your data
Your personal data will be retained for a period of two years, unless we are required by law to retain your personal data for a longer period of time. Your data are not subject to automatic decision procedures.
GNSS.asia follows strict data security procedures to ensure that your personal information is not damaged, destroyed, or disclosed to a third party without your permission and to prevent unauthorised access. The computers storing the information are kept in a secure environment with restricted physical access. We use secure firewalls and other measures to restrict electronic access. If the data must be transferred to a third party, we require them to have in place similar measures to protect your personal data.
All of the information we collect or record is restricted to our offices. Only persons who need the information to fulfil their duties are granted access to personal data. We will explicitly ask you when we need information to identify you. We may require you to cooperate with our security checks before we disclose information to you. You can update the personal information that you give us at any time by contacting us directly.
