How we store your information

We keep your information in an excel spreadsheet on our company sharepoint system. This is held in a secure way on Microsoft Office 365 servers.

It is also contained within Mailchimp email lists and may be contained on Hubspot a CRM system we use to track our conversations with customers. Mailchimp and Hubspot comply with GDPR legislation and provide a secure way of storing the personal information you have given us.

We use EventBrite to take bookings onto our Brief Encounter Workshops – we do not see or hold any of your payment details as that is all handled by EventBrite.

What we use your information for

We like to keep in touch and so use your email to send you News about Brief Marketing, information about upcoming Brief Encounters and any offers we’re running relating to our Brief Encounter workshops.

We do not share your information with third parties, unless you have requested that we do so as part of an Awesome Brief (finding a marketing specialist on your behalf).

If you have been a client of ours we will hold the information relating to a project we have run on your behalf for up to two years. We will ask your explicit consent to be added to our email list.

What happens in the event of a data breach?

If there is a breach of the secure systems that hold your data then Brief Marketing will notify the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and you within 30 days of discovering the breech. (In practice we will endeavour to do it immediately).

You don’t want to hear from us anymore?

We’ll be sad to see you go, but no problem, send us an email to goodbye@briefmarketing.co.uk with your full name and with the email address you want to remove and request to be removed from our database. We will delete our electronic files, and remove you from all of the mailing lists that you may be on.
