General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

How Insights is complying with GDPR

Individuals trust us with their personal data every day. We take that responsibility very seriously and see the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as an opportunity to protect and utilise that data in an even more effective way.

This page will outline the fundamentals of the GDPR for your information, as well as how Insights intends to comply with these regulations. If you have further questions about the GDPR, please visit the Official GDPR Portal. For more information about Insights in regards to GDPR, please contact your Insights Account Manager or email us at legal@insights.com.

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is EU legislation that was approved in 2016 and takes effect as of May 25, 2018. It mandates higher standards for how businesses can collect, process, store, and use personal data. The GDPR gives European citizens more transparency, control, and safety over their information.

How does the GDPR affect Insights and our clients?

As an organisation headquartered in the United Kingdom with clients all over the world, we intend to follow GDPR standards in a globally consistent manner. We have always taken great care with data collected, but are equally focused on ensuring the GDPR implementation gives us an opportunity to improve on our processes.

Privacy is a fundamental human right, and the GDPR is Europe’s way of recognising that.
John Walsh
Head of Information Security at Insights

Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions? We have answers!

What type of data are you collecting?

Throughout the course of promoting our business and working with clients, we do collect personal data. However, we only collect and store the minimum data necessary. That means we only ask the pertinent questions, whether you're completing an Insights Discovery Personal Profile or registering for an Insights conference.

How do I give Insights consent to process my personal data?

When completing an Insights Evaluator, we’ll ask for your personal information and inform you of your rights as a "Data Subject" and require that you consent to our Privacy Policy to proceed. If you have any questions prior to proceeding, we will ensure there is a way to contact us for more information. To receive marketing communications like newsletters, learning and development news, and invitations to exclusive events, we will be asking you to “opt in”. If you do not “opt in”, we will remove your contact information from our database.

Can I withdraw consent once I've given it?

Absolutely. If at any time, you'd prefer for Insights to cease storing and processing your data, you can contact your Insights Account Manager or email us at legal@insights.com and we will remove all of your data from our database.

We've invested in specialist resources to oversee our commitment to privacy and data protection. GDPR is a top priority for Insights and we're drawing upon the support of the global organisation to comply and enhance our legendary customer experience
