If the individual consents to being entered into the Competition only, their data will be stored for a period of three months, following the Competition. This amount of time is required in order for us to keep your details on file, in the case that you do contact us (via email, phone or website) regarding our company and/or the services we offer.
Within that time the individual will receive one email from ADVAM, providing a summary of the Event and inviting them to subscribe to ADVAM Updates. The individual can also subscribe to receive ADVAM Updates at any time via www.advam.com/subscribe-now/
If there is engagement between the contact and ADVAM, either via email, telephone, www.advam.com or message via our social media channels (LinkedIn or Twitter), within the three month period, the data will be maintained by ADVAM until there has been a period of inactivity for three years, or the individual contacts ADVAM and exercises their right to amend or delete. This amount of time is required in order to ensure that the individual and ADVAM representatives are able to maintain communication and maintain a record of previous communication. ADVAM Updates will only be sent to individuals which are existing customers and/or have subscribed to ADVAM Updates.
If the individual consents to receive ADVAM Updates, they will receive an email confirming their subscription. Their data will be retained until the individual unsubscribes from ADVAM marketing communications, the individual exercises their right to amend or delete; or there has been a period of inactivity for three years. This amount of time is required in order to ensure that the individual and ADVAM representatives are able to maintain communication and maintain a record of previous communication.
If the individual is linked to an existing client of ADVAM, data will be retained, in order to provide the service to the client and the individual, for the duration of the client relationship. If the client relationship is terminated with ADVAM, their data will continue to be retained until the individual unsubscribes from ADVAM marketing communications, the individual exercises their right to amend or delete; or there has been a period of inactivity for three years. This amount of time is required in order to ensure that the individual and ADVAM representatives are able to maintain communication and maintain a record of previous communication.
If, for any reason, ADVAM is not able to collect personal information via the iCapture App, an individual can provide details via the submission of their business card, or by completing a paper form. During the event, the paper forms will be kept secure in a locked cabinet during the event. Following the event, the paper forms will return to the ADVAM office. All data collected on the paper form will be manually entered into the ADVAM database. This will be entered within two weeks of the event and the paper forms will be put in secure disposal at this time.
