Why we collect personal information from you
You can visit this website without revealing any information to us about yourself.
However, there are parts of the Exigent website where we will need to collect your personal data for you to proceed. Whenever we ask you for information that enables us to identify you it will be clear that we are doing so and, in every case, you can choose how we use the information. Information of this type will only be asked for on those parts of our websites that allow transactions to be performed, or where you choose to sign up for a webinar, newsletter, white paper or other event, in contrast to those parts of our websites that are merely informational in their function. It is also needed so that we can contact you if you have asked us to do so or if it is necessary as part of a particular transactional process, for example in order to validate your authorised user status in relation to a transaction.
What Information do we collect from you?
Personal information is information that can be used to identify an individual. We collect personal information to enable you to enjoy the full features of our website and access special sections or receive update, communications and notifications from us via email. Information of this type will also be collected when you contact us directly by email for any reason or if you specifically request that we send you information.
