What information we collect
Systems Assurance Ltd 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 via our own employees through telephone conversations with employees of your organisation.
Our website collects and stores certain information automatically using cookies and similar technologies, including IP addresses, the region or general location of a computer or device accessing the internet, browser type, operating system, page view history, and other usage information.
How we collect it
We may collect your personal data when you register to receive any of the products, content or services offered by Systems Assurance Ltd 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?
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.
How do we safeguard your personal data?
Security of your personal data
Systems Assurance Ltd 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 Systems Assurance Ltd ‘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 Systems Assurance’s products, content or services to you.
Storage of your personal data

Your personal data may also be stored by third parties, via cloud services or other technology, to whom Systems Assurance Ltd has contracted with, to support Systems Assurance Ltd 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 Systems Assurance Ltd 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).
