Our Privacy Policy and your Rights

Effective date: May 24, 2018

​Who we are

At Consigas, security is the core of our business. We are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our customers as well as visitors to our website. In particular, we want you to know that Consigas is not in the business of selling, renting or trading personal information with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. We just don’t do that sort of thing. But just in case you don’t believe us, in this Privacy Policy, we’ve provided lots of detailed information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

Types of data we collect and why

Personal Data

When you visit our website or communicate with us via e-mail/phone, for instance to request information, sign up for newsletters, enrol in a training, or to propose your products and services as a vendor, we collect and we ask you to provide information about yourself (“Your Information”) that may include:

  • Contact details – including your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, the company you work for, your job title or business role, your area of responsibility, your country or region
  • User ID and password – if you establish an account with us

  • History of interaction – with our webpages, and traffic data relating to your Internet connection;


If you pay for our services by credit card, then we use third-party services for payment processing (payment processors).
We will not store or collect your payment card details. That information is provided directly to our third-party payment processors whose use of your personal information is governed by their Privacy Policy. These payment processors adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of payment information.
The payment processor we work with is Stripe and for more information please visit their Privacy Policy

Mailing Lists

As part of the registration process for our e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer Lars Meyer at privacy@consigas.com.
