You value your privacy and we respect that. When you register or purchase with gastechnews.com, we need to collect a certain amount of information about you to make registering easier for you and for us. We believe that you have a right to know how we use that information and how we keep it secure. So we’ve answered the most frequently asked questions below. If you have any more questions about our policy, call us at +44 (0) 203 180 6571, email [email protected] or write to us at dmg :: events (UK) Ltd (‘dmg events’), Northcliffe House, 2 Derry Street, London, W8 5TT, United Kingdom. Dmg events is part of the Daily Mail and General Trust (‘DMGT’) group of companies.
What information do we collect?
When you order or register with us, we may need to know your name, company name, email address, postal address, telephone number, billing address, credit card number and credit card expiration date so we can process and fill your order/registration. It also lets us keep you updated on the status of your order. Now and then, we may run contests or other promotions. When you enter, we’ll probably ask for your name, mailing address, email address and other information so we can run the promotion and notify winners. When you send a request, review or comment to our team, we may ask you for your email address so we can get back in touch with you, if we need to. When you visit our website, we may also collect IP addresses linked to your personally identifiable information to protect you from fraudulent use of your account. We may, from time to time, conduct online surveys. When you complete a survey online, we may ask for certain information from you, including your email and/or mailing address. We may add to the information we collect from you and your use of our services, with information we learn from your interactions with other companies in our wider DMGT group.
How do we use the information?
When you place an order on our website, we use your information to process and fill your order. We may send you an email to confirm or to update you on your order. We may also need to contact you by regular mail, email or phone if we have any questions about your order. When you register for one of our conferences, your information may be made accessible to our conference partners. Since you are also their customers, these partners are very concerned about protecting your privacy and will only use your information as outlined in this policy. When you order, register, complete a survey or participate in any contest or promotion on our website, we’ll use the information you give us to send you email or regular mail about our products, services or other contests and promotions you might be interested in, unless you opt out. We may also use the information to personalize your experience by using your product interests and purchase information to enable you to receive recommendations for other products, services or promotions from us and DMGT companies or other companies that we believe might interest you, and where you have indicated that you wish to receive these offers. But only dmg events will send you messages in relation to the services of companies outside our DMGT group. We may also notify you of functionality changes to the website. Also, we may, from time to time, combine your information with information of other customers to help us analyze trends, purchasing patterns and preferences, and demographics.
Do we share your information with third parties?
We share your information with our trusted third party service providers who manage our website. These third parties provide specific services and administer activities offered at our website; for example, call and email centre and credit card processing. These third parties are not authorized to discuss or make any use of your personal information; it can only be used to provide such services. If you register for one of our conferences, we also provide your information to our trusted conference partners. These partners adhere to the same strict privacy guidelines as dmg world media. Now and then, we may also use third parties to help us collect and aggregate site guest and customer information. We may share this aggregated, non-personally identifiable information with existing and prospective business partners and advertisers. None of the aggregate information will contain any information that identifies you individually. Subject to your agreement we may share your details within the DMGT group of companies so that you can receive information and offers by email, telephone or post that we believe will be of interest to you. We will not share you details outside our group for this purpose. Only dmg events will contact you in connection with the offers of other companies unrelated to dmg events or the DMGT group and only where you have consented to receive these other offers. Other than the disclosures described in this policy, the only other time we may disclose specific individual information is if we reasonably believe that it’s necessary to comply with applicable laws or regulations or to protect the interests of dmg world media, its affiliates or guests.
How can you access or change your information or opt out of receiving information about new products and promotions from us?
If you want to update your information or remove yourself from any of our email or regular mailing lists, simply call us at +44 (0) 203 180 6571, email [email protected], or write to us at dmg :: events, Northcliffe House, 2 Derry Street, London, W8 5TT, United Kindgdom. Please note that your request to be removed from mailing lists might take up to five days to become effective. Even if you’re removed from a list, if you order online, we will send you an email to confirm your order and may need to contact you by phone, email or regular mail if we have questions about your order. There will be an unsubscribe option within each promotional email that you receive from us so you can automatically remove your name from our mailing list, if desired.
How do we protect the privacy of children?
The safety and privacy of children is very important to us. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we will not knowingly collect or request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent.
How do we use “cookies”?
How do we make sure your information is secure?
We use the latest encryption technology (Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL) to keep your personal information secure. When you order with us, your information is encrypted (or coded) using a secure server for maximum security. This coding makes it extremely difficult for anyone to reach your information as it moves through our ordering system. To check the security of your computer, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock, then the encryption technology is active and the server is secure. You can also check by looking at the URL line of your browser; when you access a secure server, the initial characters of the site address will be “https”. To make sure that your information is secure, we recommend never giving your credit card or personal information in an email; email messages are not secure. Certain browsers don’t allow communication through secure servers. If this is the case, you won’t be able to place an order online.

Do I have to turn the security feature on when I want to register?
Every purchase at gastechnews.com is secure. The security features are automatic, and always on. You don’t have to do anything but register. How do I know if I’m connected when I start registering?
Once you’ve clicked the “Submit” button, your browser looks for a digital certificate to confirm that it’s communicating with gastech.co.uk. Once a positive ID is made, your registration will continue securely. Are all the pages on gastech.co.uk secure? Most of the pages on our site provide information about gastech.co.uk and our products. We make this information available freely and there’s no reason for these pages to be “secure.” The pages that we make secure are the ones on which you actually make a purchase with your credit card information. Is my information secure when it’s travelling across the Internet?
All of your information is encrypted before it’s transmitted across the Internet, then decoded only after it arrives at our secure servers.
