At IDC we are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information we collect about you to process orders and to provide a means for informing you of our future research publications and services.
Controllers of personal information
Any personal information provided to or to be gathered by IDC is controlled primarily by the Director of Marketing and Operations, IDC EMEA, IDC UK Ltd, British Standards House, 389 Chiswick High Road, London W4 4AL.
What information do we collect? How do we use it?
When you order, we need to know your name, email address, delivery address, credit or debit card number and the card's expiry date (if applicable). This allows us to process and fulfil your orders.
We also ask for your telephone number, which enables us to contact you urgently if there is a problem with your order.
We may also use the information we collect to notify you occasionally about important new research publications and services that we can provide.
If you would rather not receive this information, you may opt out by emailing us at email@example.com.
IDC does not provide your client account information to any third party. Specifically:
IDC does not store or maintain your credit card information
- We do not sell your account or usage information
- We do not report usage or user information to any third party
- We do not accept any advertising on our site and therefore have no information reporting requirements to any third party.
For credit card users, we move the transaction information from our Web server to our financial systems and do not maintain your credit card information in our user database.
By submitting your order, you consent to this transfer. IDC may occasionally notify you about important future research publications and services which will also use your personal information.
If you would rather not receive this information, you may opt out by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org detailing your name and address; we will then remove your details from our database.
Corporate Administrators at our client organizations have access to usage statistics for their account base.
If your user account is part of a corporate account, then a Corporate Administrator at your company may access your user and usage information. Corporate Administrators can access user information only for individuals within their corporate profile.
No one external to IDC has access to user information for individual accounts (individuals not part of a corporate account).
