How do we use your information?

We use information collected about you as outlined in this Privacy Policy.


Our primary purpose in collecting your personal data is to provide you with the products and services you requested and those which we believe will optimize your use of the Site. We may use your personal data for the following purposes:

•            To compile internal statistical data reflecting Energy Intelligence title readership and to carry out research, including market research, statistical research on Site traffic, sales and other commercial information to assist us in improving the services and products we provide to you and tailor the Site;*

•            To provide internal departmental usage information for charge back purposes;*

•            To help in development of any new and updated publications, features and/or services and products;*

•            To identify you as an Authorized User pursuant to a license or subscription agreement or otherwise when accessing the EI Services;

•            To provide the information, products, services, events or support you request and related after-sales services;

•            To send other messages that are useful to the services and products we provide and events we host or co-host;

•            To manage our relationship with you and to carry out any related administration;

•            To promote our services, products or events or the services, products and events of our partners, including by email and via social media platforms (subject to the relevant marketing permissions);*

•            To protect the security of our IT systems and services against unauthorized or unlawful access and misuse;*

In more legal terms, we process your personal data where we have your consent to do so or otherwise where this is necessary for:

  • The performance of our contract with you for the provision of EI Services or to take preliminary steps at your request;
  • Us to fulfil our legal obligations; or
  • The purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests.  Our legitimate interests are those indicated with a “*” above, and we consider that we have implemented sufficient checks and protections to ensure that your rights and interests are not unreasonably intruded on.

*However, you can object to processing on any of these bases at any time and, if you do so, we will stop processing the personal data unless we can show compelling legitimate grounds which override your rights and interests, or we need the data to establish, exercise or defend legal claims – see “Your rights” below.



Energy Intelligence also records your visits to the Site and any updates to the personal data that you enter or that are transferred from other related applications so that entries or changes can be validated.


Technologies such as “cookies” are used by Energy Intelligence and our Site analytics providers.


Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Our Site uses “cookies” to help you access our Site. Also, our Site’s cookies help speed up navigation, keep track of items and help to provide you with custom-tailored content. In addition, Energy Intelligence also uses cookies to remember information that you gave us so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our Site.


A web analytics service s shows us how visitors found and explored our site, and how we can enhance their experience.  It provides us with information about the behaviour of our visitors (e.g., how long they stayed on the Site, the average number of pages viewed) and also tells us how many visitors we have had.


These various technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the Site, tracking users’ movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.


As is true of most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, to analyse trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.


Cookie consent

In most cases we will need your consent in order to use cookies on the Site. Exceptions to this apply such as where the cookie is essential in order for us to provide you with a service you have requested. If you visit our website when your browser is set to accept cookies, we will interpret this as an indication that you consent to our use of cookies and other similar technologies as described in this policy. If you change your mind in the future about letting us use cookies, you can modify the settings of your browser to reject cookies or disable cookies completely.


If you do not want to accept cookies, you can change your browser settings so that cookies are not accepted. If you do this, please be aware that you may lose some of the functionality of this website.

Applying to work with us

If you apply to work with us, we will use the information you supply to process your application and to monitor recruitment statistics. As a global business we may transfer your details outside of your home country and to other companies or locations in our group. We will ask you to sign up to additional privacy terms if you apply for a job with us.  Once a person has taken up employment with us, we will compile a file relating to their employment. At that stage we will give more details about how we hold employee data and we will expect the employee to sign up to additional privacy terms as part of their employment.

If you apply to work with us through a third party, such as a recruitment consultant, please also check their privacy policy before proceeding.  We do not encourage unsolicited approaches either directly or from third parties – please do not send personal data to us unless the data subject has read and agrees to this privacy policy.

We may retain details of candidates who may be of interest to us, either now or in the future, for up to one year and, if required, longer.  If you would not like us to do that please let us know.  Additionally, if your circumstances change – for example you no longer wish to be considered by us for employment – please let us know that too.

We may use third parties to consider potential hires.  We may also verify details in your application and make what we consider to be reasonable and necessary background checks about you. These background checks may require a third party to contact you and obtain information.


Who may use your information?

Energy Intelligence will share your data with other Energy Intelligence Group entities worldwide.  We may run some of our events with our partners and we may share your information with them.  We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such partners, and their privacy policy will apply to their use of your personal data.


We may also use your data for marketing purposes – please carefully read our statements on marketing when disclosing data to us.


Energy Intelligence may disclose your personal data to enforce our policies, to comply with our legal obligations or in the interests of security, public interest or law enforcement in any country where we have entities, offices or affiliates. For example, we may respond to a request by a law enforcement agency or regulatory or governmental authority. We may also disclose data in connection with actual or proposed litigation, and to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the EI Services or other intellectual property of Energy Intelligence, or to protect our property, security, people and other rights or interests.


Energy Intelligence may pass your personal data to third-party service providers providing contractual services to us, such as web hosting, delivering subscriptions, developing or supporting products and features, list processing, sending email messages on our behalf, providing marketing assistance, and providing customer service.  Energy Intelligence provides such service providers only with the information they need to perform their services and subject to appropriate contractual protections.


Energy Intelligence also collects your credit card information when you choose to pay us by credit card. This information is shared with financial services companies relevant to the transaction.


We may also share your personal data with any third party you have asked us to share your personal data with – such as Facebook or any other social media site if you have asked us to connect with your account.


You may have accessed our website(s) through a hyperlink from the website of one of our trading partners. If so, you consent to your personal details and purchase information, including behavioural patterns, being shared with that trading partner in accordance with our contractual relationship with them.


If we or any part of our group is sold, or some of its assets transferred to a third party, your personal information, as a valuable asset, may also be transferred to the acquirer, even if they are not in the same line of business as us. Our customer database could be sold separately from the rest of the business, in whole or in a number of parts. Potential purchasers and their advisors may have limited access to data as part of the sale process. However, use of your personal information will remain subject to this Privacy Policy.


Similarly, your personal information may be passed on to a successor in interest in the unlikely event of a liquidation, bankruptcy or administration.
