Information About Us

www.scaleglobalsummit.com is a Website operated by SCALE Global (“Website”). This Website provides access to SCALE’s events, which are focused on alternative investing and entrepreneurial ecosystems.

We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. We are responsible for protecting your personal information as a “data controller” under applicable data protection legislation. If you have any queries about this Policy or how we use your personal information, please contact us by writing to us at hello@scaleglobal.co or hello@stagelightgroup.com.

This Policy sets out the basis on which any personal information we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal information and how we will treat it. By visiting our Website, you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this Policy.

This Policy is prepared in compliance with local, state and federal laws as in force from time to time.

Protecting your personal privacy is very important to us at SCALE. Below you will find a statement of our commitment to ensuring the privacy of your personal information (information you provide to SCALE which personally identifies you, listed in information we collect, or other identifying information).

Information We Collect

We may collect personal information including your full name, personal address, business name and address, business email address, personal email address, mobile and business telephone numbers, credit card information, social media profiles, dietary requirements, special arrangement information for hearing, vision and mobility or other matters, and bank account information.

We may collect information about your company, including a description of its business, finances, assets under management, and investment strategy.

How We Collect Information

We obtain personal information when you provide this to us via: (1) direct email from you to us; (2) electronic or written uploads to the Website or responses to letters; mailings and other means of communication, (3) via SCALE’s social media sites; and (4) during the course of providing our services to you.

We may record emails for quality assurance purposes. We may also collect technical information relating to your use of our Website, including your browser type or the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address used to connect your computer to the internet. We also gather general information about the use of our Website, such as which pages users visit most often and which features are of most interest. We may use this information to personalize the way our Website is presented when users visit, to make improvements to our Website and to ensure we provide the best service for users. Wherever possible, we use aggregated or anonymous information which does not identify individual visitors to our Website.

Why We Collect Information

We collect this information for the purposes described in the section titled “How We Use Information”. The lawful basis for which we process your information is:

  • your consent;
  • processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party. If you fail to provide this information, we may be unable to perform the contract;
  • processing is necessary for compliance with our legal obligations;
  • processing is necessary for the purpose of the legitimate interest pursued by us or a third party, except where your rights as a data subject override our legitimate interest.

How We Use Information

We use the personal information in accordance with the terms of the contracts between us. We may use your personal information:

  • to provide you with services or information you have requested; and
  • to notify you about changes to our services; as part of our efforts to keep our Website safe and secure; and to ensure that content from our Website is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.

We will never disclose your personal information to a non-affiliated third party without first receiving your permission.

SCALE will never willfully disclose any personal information about our visitors to any non-affiliated third party without first receiving the user’s (or if a child, the parent’s or guardian’s) permission. We do not collect personal information from our visitors other than what is supplied to us on a voluntary basis.

SCALE may use the information for trend analysis, pattern detection, and Website administration. In addition, SCALE may collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. SCALE does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so your use of our Website remains anonymous.

Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), SCALE will never knowingly request personal information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent. Only persons 13 and older may provide personal information to SCALE. Persons 13 and younger may visit the Website but may not register or otherwise provide any personal information.

 For How Long We Keep Your Personal Information

We keep your information for no longer than is necessary. We will retain your information for any period required by law, and where we are not under a legal obligation to retain your information, we will determine what is necessary by reference to the lawful basis for processing set out above and our legitimate interests.

If you have any questions about how long we keep your information, please contact us.

Cookies

Do we use ‘cookies’? Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process information in your account. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We use technical cookies, tracking cookies and third-party cookies.

We use cookies to:

  • Understand and save user’s preferences for future visits.
  • Keep track of advertisements.
  • Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may also use trusted third-party services that track this information on our behalf.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Since browser is a little different, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

By accessing our site, you consent to our use of cookies. If you are located in the EU, you will receive a popup notice on the website. We also use cookies for which we do not require your consent as they are cookies necessary to render you our services. Without them the services that you have asked for cannot be provided.

If you disable cookies, some features will be disabled such as ecommerce functionality and other site functionality. This will turn off some of the features that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.

The cookies used by us do not allow a person to be identified individually. Cookies do not contain any personal information so it cannot link you as a person to any name or surname. Only the IT system on which the cookie is stored can be identified via its IP address.

At present, there is no standard or agreement on how to respond to “do-not-track” signals that may be sent by web browsers. Accordingly, we currently do not take any action in response to these signals. We may reassess how to respond to these signals if and when a final standard is established and accepted. In the meantime, you can opt-out of many advertisers’ use of cookies to tailor advertising to you by visiting http://www.aboutads.info/choices/

 

California Privacy Rights

California residents may also request that certain information be deleted, but exceptions apply. California law also provides that you are not to be discriminated against if you exercise these rights. If you are a California resident and would like to request this information or opt-out of the sharing of your personal information with third parties for marketing purposes, please submit your request in writing to hello@scaleglobal.co or hello@stagelightgroup.com.
