WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT
EBOOKSIDEA collects data about you that is limited to the kind of information that can be found on a typical business card: first name, last name, job title, employer/company name, work address, work email, and work phone number. In some cases, we may ask you to provide additional professional information such as the size of the company you work for, and industry type.
To enhance and/or update the information that you have provided to us, we may combine it with professional information or personal data that we collect from third party sources. The personal data that we refer to in this document is the personal and professional information you provide, as well as information that we obtain from third party sources, both of which we typically combine as one user record.
HOW WE COLLECT IT
We may collect your personal data when you register to receive any of the products, content or services offered by EBOOKSIDEA or its third party sponsors (“sponsors”) such as publications, subscriptions, contests, newsletters, memberships, premium content, webcasts, video, white papers, online seminars, conferences and events.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON’T PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA?
In order for us to provide the products, content or services you request, we need your personal data. Therefore, if you do not provide such personal data, we cannot deliver the products, content or services.
EBOOKSIDEA’S PUBLISHING NETWORK
This website is one of many that EBOOKSIDEA and its group of undertakings operates, all of which we collectively refer to as the Ebooksidea’s Publishing Network. Where permitted by law, we may share the personal data we collect about you with another ebooksidea’s Publishing Network company so that we can provide you with information about products, content and services that might interest you, and for internal analytical and business development purposes.

HOW DO WE SAFEGUARD YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
EBOOKSIDEA maintains safeguards which include technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorized use, access, inadvertent disclosure, alteration, and destruction, and we require the third parties we contract with to support EBOOKSIDEA’s business operations to employ reasonable security measures as well (see “When and how we share your information with others” below).
We update and test security on an ongoing basis and restrict access to your personal data to only those who need to know in order to provide EBOOKSIDEA’s products, content or services to you.
STORAGE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We may store your personal data using EBOOKSIDEA’s own secure on-site servers or other internally hosted technology. Your personal data may also be stored by third parties, via cloud services or other technology, to whom EBOOKSIDEA has contracted with, to support EBOOKSIDEA’s business operations (see “When and how we share your information with others” below).
These third parties do not use or have access to your personal data other than for cloud storage and retrieval, and EBOOKSIDEA requires such parties to employ at least the same level of security that we use to protect your personal data (see “Security of your personal data” above).
WHAT WE DO WITH THE PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT
WE USE THE PERSONAL DATA THAT WE COLLECT TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU, DELIVER WHAT YOU REQUEST, IMPROVE OUR SERVICE, AND TO PRESENT OTHER INFORMATION AND BUSINESS OFFERS THAT MAY BE OF INTEREST.
TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU
We may use your personal data to send you important notices, such as communications about your registration, transactions, and changes to EBOOKSIDEA’s terms, conditions, policies, and/or other internal purposes.
TO DELIVER WHAT YOU REQUEST
We may use your personal data to provide the products, content or services you request. If you enter a sweepstake, contest, or similar EBOOKSIDEA promotion, we may use your personal data to administer such promotion.
TO IMPROVE OUR SERVICE
We may use your personal data for auditing, data analysis, and research to improve EBOOKSIDEA’s products, content and services.
TO PRESENT OFFERS THAT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO YOU
We may contact you to offer you additional EBOOKSIDEA or third party products, content or services that may be of interest to you. When we contact you regarding any such business offers, your personal data continues to be held by EBOOKSIDEA, unless you specifically indicate that EBOOKSIDEA can share it, such as when you tell us you wish to receive a business offer from one of our third party sponsors.
THE LEGAL BASIS WE HAVE FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
The GDPR requires data collectors, such as EBOOKSIDEA, to have a legal basis to use the personal data of EU residents. Therefore, this section shall apply to any such personal data collected by EBOOKSIDEA.
EBOOKSIDEA uses the personal data that you provide to supply you with high-quality products, content and services as you request, to send important notices, and for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to provide you with the information you need to make the most informed technology purchasing decisions. We may also use your personal data to offer you products, content or services that may be of interest to you, based upon your interests or the preferences you shared with us, and may share your personal data with third party sponsors of content, events, and other business services or offers.
The legal basis for processing your personal data is your consent. In certain circumstances we may otherwise process your personal data if EBOOKSIDEA has a legitimate interest in doing so and EBOOKSIDEA is not infringing any of your rights and freedoms.
When EBOOKSIDEA processes your personal data for EBOOKSIDEA’s legitimate interests, EBOOKSIDEA will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under data protection and any other relevant law. Our legitimate business interests do not override your interests. EBOOKSIDEA will not use your personal data in circumstances where your rights and freedoms override our legitimate interests, unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law.
WHEN AND HOW WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA WITH OTHERS
EBOOKSIDEA may share your personal data to deliver content and services from our sites, affiliated companies and third parties services that might interest you, including sponsored content and events, for business operations, and to comply with valid legal processes.
If you are an EU resident, EBOOKSIDEA will only share your personal data with third parties outside of the Ebooksidea Publishing Network, with your consent.
FOR CONTENT AND SERVICES THAT MAY INTEREST YOU OR THAT YOU REQUEST
As we mention above, your personal data may be shared within the Ebooksidea Publishing Network to provide you with information about products, content and services that might interest you and for internal analytical and business development purposes (see “Ebooksidea Publishing Network” above). We may also share your personal data with third parties to deliver third party sponsored content or other services that you request (see “third party sponsored content and events” below). As indicated above (see “To present offers that may be of interest to you”), however, your personal data continues to be held by EBOOKSIDEA, unless you specifically indicate that EBOOKSIDEA can share it with the third party sponsor.
FOR BUSINESS OPERATIONS
We may also share your personal data with third parties we have contracted with to support EBOOKSIDEA’s business operations including delivery, fulfillment, payment processing, email deployment, suppression list management and data processing.
FOR THIRD PARTY SPONSORED CONTENT AND EVENTS
EBOOKSIDEA partners with third party sponsors to make available a large library of content to our users, such as white papers, professional events (live or online), as well as other business services or offers. In return for access to such offers, we may ask you to provide us with personal data as part of the registration.
AS REQUIRED BY LAW
Your personal data may be shared when authorized by law or necessary to comply with a valid legal process.
IN THE EVENT OF NEW OWNERSHIP
If part or all the ownership of EBOOKSIDEA or any of its products or services are sold or transferred, your personal data will be transferred to the new owner.
INTERNATIONAL DATA TRANSFERS
HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We retain your personal data for the duration of your business relationship with us, and we hold your information only as long as necessary for each purpose we use it, unless we have obtained your consent to use for another or similar purpose.
YOUR RIGHTS AND PREFERENCES
If you inform us that you want EBOOKSIDEA to provide the categories and specific pieces of personal data EBOOKSIDEA collects, your personal data erased (if you are an EU resident) or deleted (if you are a California consumer), that you do not want your personal data sold (if you are a California consumer), that you no longer wish for us to communicate with you for marketing purposes, or to otherwise restrict EBOOKSIDEA’s processing of your personal data, we may retain some basic information in order to avoid sending you unwanted materials in the future, and to keep a record of your request and our response.
