Newsletter Sign Up and Downloadable Content

As part of the registration process for our monthly e-newsletter and for downloadable content, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you have expressed an interest in; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy for us to still keep in touch. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.

Website Analytics

When someone visits the Kompetently website we use a third-party service, Hubspot, to collect internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. This works on the basis of reverse business IP tracking. A small tracking code is placed on a business’ website(s) which then enables them to identify the business IP addresses of their website visitors. Hubspot matches the identified business IP address to a wholly owned global database of businesses and business information. The software is almost entirely focused on leveraging business-related information to effectively match a business IP address with wider business data to provide valuable business-related visitor information to our customers. It does not identify any personal IP addresses, mobile devices or any other data than that associated with the business. Business related data is not applicable under GDPR – which has the intention of protecting personal data. Therefore, the majority of the Hubspot solution and its features are not relevant to GDPR. More information about Hubspot and GDPR can be found on the Hubspot Privacy Policy page
