What information does BDIBCA collect?
We collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and anonymous information. Generally speaking, you can visit this website without identifying who you are or revealing any information about yourself.
Personally identifiable information is information that specifically identifies a particular user such as name, email address or phone number.
Anonymous information is information that cannot be connected to the identity of a specific individual. For example, a site may record the number of visits to a particular page that occur in a given period of time, but that does not necessarily provide the names or other identifying information of each visitor.
When you subscribe to our blog post or podcast, place an order for our products or services, or enroll in one of our courses, webinars or workshops, we collect certain information to process your request for information and/or products/services.

What about my GDPR rights?
According to the GDPR a “data subject” is defined as an identifiable natural person. A natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as: a name, an identification number, location data, or online identifier. Alternatively, they may be identified by reference to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person. A data subject may be of any age or nationality.
As a data subject, within the European Union, you are entitled to certain rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Those rights include:
You have the right to be informed with respect to your personally identifiable information (PII) retained by the Company. As such, you may request access to your data that the Company stores and the rights to either correct or erase your personal data.
We will retain any personally identifiable information you choose to provide to us unless: (a) you request for us to delete the information, (b) we stop using our existing data providers, or (c) at Company’s discretion, we decide to remove the data.
You have the right to seek restrictions on the processing of your data.
You have the right to object to the processing of your data and the right to the portability of your data.
You have the right to withdraw consent provided to the Company concerning the processing of your personal data, as well as the right to withdraw that consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based upon consent that occurred prior to your withdrawal of consent.
You have the right to not be subjected to automated decision-making via pre-ticked boxes, additions to our email marketing lists, and the like.
You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority that has jurisdiction over issues related to the General Data Protection Regulation.
We require only the information that is reasonably required to enter into a contract with you. We will not require you to provide consent for any unnecessary processing as a condition of entering into a contract with us by way of downloading a free resource or any other traditional list building methods.
