What we will not collect

This website is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children.

We do not intend to collect sensitive information through our website unless we are legally required to do so. Examples of sensitive information include race or ethnic origin; political opinions; religious or philosophical beliefs; trade union membership; physical or mental health; genetic data; biometric data; sexual life or sexual orientation; and criminal records.

We ask that you do not provide sensitive information of this nature when using our websites. If you choose to provide sensitive information to us for any reason, the act of doing so constitutes your explicit consent, where such consent is necessary and valid under your local law, for us to collect and use that information in the ways described in this privacy statement or as described at the point where you choose to disclose this information.


Where we are legally required to obtain your explicit consent to provide you with marketing materials, we will only provide you with such marketing materials if you have provided consent for us to do so.

If you opt into any subscriptions, you will receive automated emails when content is updated. If you select any preferences such as issues, topics, subjects or industries, you may receive email communications related to those self-selected topics.

We may send emails and marketing communications on our own or in conjunction with another organisation with which we have entered into a collaboration arrangement.

Transfers of personal data

The Company may transfer your data to servers in countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) due to the nature of the internet and cloud storage, which means that data may be processed in another country, although we do not have an operation outside the UK. We will take all reasonable steps to make sure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy

Retention of personal data

We will retain your personal data on our systems only for as long as we need it, given the purposes for which it was collected, or as required to do so by operation of law or regulation.

We keep contact information (such as mailing list information) until a recipient unsubscribes or requests that we delete that information. If you choose to unsubscribe from a mailing list, we may keep certain limited information about you so that we may honour your request.

Rights in relation to your personal data

You may have certain rights under UK or EU law in relation to the personal data held by Pinpoint Visualisation Limited about you. In particular you may have a right to:

  • request a copy of the personal data we hold about you;

  • ask that we update the personal information we hold about you, or correct such personal information that you think is incorrect or incomplete;

  • ask that we delete personal information that we hold about you or restrict the way in which we use such personal data. Please note that we may not always be able to comply with a request for deletion of personal data for legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request;

  • object to our processing of your personal data; and/or

  • withdraw your consent to our processing of your personal data (to the extent such processing is based on consent and consent is the only permissible basis for processing).

If you would like to exercise these rights, please contact us by sending an email or by one of the means set out at the end of this privacy notice. We may charge for a request to access details of your information, if permitted by law. If your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive we may refuse to comply with your request.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated. You may also have the right to lodge a complaint with your local data protection regulator.

Inaccuracies and corrections

We would like to keep your personal data accurate and up to date, but we do not assume responsibility for verifying the ongoing accuracy of your personal information. If you become aware of any errors or inaccuracies, or you believe our website has collected excessive information about you, please let us know by emailing us at .

If you have questions about the accuracy of identifying information you previously submitted to Pinpoint Visualisation Limited, or want to have outdated information removed, please contact us.

If you want to unsubscribe from mailing lists or any registrations, you should look for and follow the instructions we have provided within the appropriate area(s) of the communications to you. Alternatively, you can contact us at any time to request that such communications cease by emailing us at .
