What Information Does Gettway Collect?

You provide us with information about yourself, your firm or company, and your practices when you visit the website, register for certain services and events, download whitepapers, subscribe to our publications, or register for email newsletters and alerts. This information includes your name, company name, job title, phone number, mailing address, and email address. You may also provide additional comments on how you see Gettway servicing your needs and interests.

If you choose to correspond with us through email, Gettway may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.

We may obtain additional personal and other information about you from third parties, and combine it with the information that we collect from you. These third parties may include publicly available sources such as LinkedIn.

The website may utilize a standard technology called “cookies” and web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website. Gettway may also use small pieces of code called “web beacons” or “clear gifs” to determine the same information.

A cookie is a very small text document, which includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that website's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.

As you login on our website, the website uses its cookies to differentiate you from other users so your data is only available to you. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from logging in more than is necessary for security. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server's log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the website are most popular. This helps us gather feedback in order to constantly improve our website and better serve our customers. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not generally store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.

What is GDPR?

GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation is the name of the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation).

The aim of the GDPR is to protect privacy of individuals in the European Union and to harmonise the national legislation of the European countries.

As of 25 May 2018, the GDPR is directly applicable and fully binding for data processing and protection throughout the European Union, thus replacing the Personal Data Protection Law in effect until now.

GDPR was developed with the aim to harmonise the differences in requirements to the processing of personal data between Member States, allowing EU citizens to have better control of their own personal data, including easier access, awareness in case of identity theft, establishment of clearer rights to erasure of personal data (the “right to be forgotten”), the right to object etc.
