Our Privacy Policy

Data Protection

We apply the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

GDPR works in two main ways. It gives individuals rights over how their personal information is used and sets out rules for organisations that process personal information.

Our Information Security and Privacy Policy describes how we treat personal information.

Our Cookies policy describes what cookies we use on our website and their purpose.

We collect and use personal information only with the approval of the said persons to offer people information and services. This policy will apply to all forms of information and to all systems used to collect, store, process or transfer information.

iCon is committed to:

  • performing privacy impact assessments to protect the privacy and rights of its customers and employees
  • protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information it collects, stores, transfers and processes in accordance with EU law and international good practice, and to meeting its legal requirements and contractual obligations
  • explaining why it needs personal information, only asking for the personal information it needs and only sharing personal information within iCon and with other organisations as necessary or where the person concerned has given their consent
  • allowing people to request access to the personal information it holds on them
  • not keeping personal information for longer than necessary
  • ensuring that actual or suspected breaches of information security are reported and investigated
  • assessing and measuring the maturity of its information security controls annually

We will provide adequate and appropriate resources to implement this policy and will ensure it is communicated and understood.

Retention and Marketing

iCon retains personal information as provided to it in order to serve its customers. We’ll use the personal information that you provide us with to send you direct marketing and to better identify services that interest you. We do that if you’re one of our customers or if you’ve been in touch with us another way (such as registering to attend an iCon event or entering a competition). We use the information provided for marketing and to identify the services you’re interested in. Your contact details. This includes your name, address (if available), previous studies (if available) phone number and email address. We’ll send you information (about the services we provide) by phone, post, email, text message, online banner advertising. We also use the information we have about you to personalise these messages wherever we can as we believe it is important to make them relevant to you.  We do this because we have a legitimate business interest in keeping you up to date with our services. We also check that you are happy for us to send you marketing messages before we do so. In each message we send, you also have the option to opt out.You can ask us to stop sending you marketing information or withdraw your permission at any time. We take all steps to ensure that any information we have is kept secured.
