- Your newsletter preferences
- Other opt in preferences
If you telephone or email us with an enquiry, we will ask you for consent to store any personal or business information that you give to us and may request you complete an opt-in form online.
If you opt in to our monthly newsletter, we will send you our ‘Research Snippets’ as dictated by your opt-in preferences. If you opt in to hearing from YouthSight, we may periodically send promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting, using the email address which you have provided.
Data will be stored on our systems until you opt out or request that your information is erased.
You can opt out of receiving marketing any time – by either clicking a link in an email we send to you or by contacting us on the details below.
How do we use the information about you?
We use any information that you have submitted to the website to send you the relevant information you have requested, as well as using your data to market our offerings, research insights, products and services and keep you up to date on industry news.
In addition, we may disclose information about you:
- to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
- in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
- in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk);
- to the purchaser (or prospective purchaser) of any business or asset which we are (or are contemplating) selling, but only where lawful and compliant with the Data Protection Act 1998.
We only use privacy compliant software internally to perform marketing if you have consented to this. To perform this marketing, we store your data in a core “Contact Management System” which is linked to our semi-automated marketing system. When we wish to distribute marketing campaigns, names in this system are checked for suitability and if they have been asked to be marketed to.
If using a live chat feature, we may pass any information voluntarily submitted during the conversation through a data privacy compliant third-party live chat system. This data will never be shared with third parties.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

If using a live chat feature, we may also store a cookie that informs us that you have entered into a live chat before for streamlining the process.
Other cookies we store are primarily statistical and broadly anonymous (although geolocation, IP addresses and network addresses can be logged).

Controlling your personal information
If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by writing to or emailing us at email@example.com.
