GLOBAL DATABASE PRIVACY NOTICE
The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is the biggest shake up of Data Protection and Privacy Laws in the EU in decades, and is forcing companies to change the way they use Personal Data, and it ensures you have greater control over how your data is used by companies in today’s technological world. Please take the time to read this statement to understand how we process the personal data we may hold about you. We may need to update this time to time so do check back regularly to stay up to date.

What we do
GLOBAL DATABASE provides subscribers with a platform to access accurate business data with worldwide coverage and a focus on hard–to–reach emerging markets along with traditional mainstream territories.
Why we do it
It’s our mission to enable businesses to promote more effectively to the right people in other organisations.
The General Data Protection Regulation defines six lawful bases for the processing of Personal Data. Of these six we have concluded that the most appropriate lawful basis for processing personal data is our legitimate interests. Global Database has a legitimate interest in processing personal data relating to decision makers and budget holders (“Business Data”) in organizations across the world, inclusive of the UK, because:
- Owing to the nature of our business and the size of our database, it is impractical for us to contact every individual to obtain his/her consent.
- The processing we do is unlikely to affect the fundamental rights and freedoms of the individuals whose data we collect and store and make available to our customer. We have concluded this because:
- We only process information taken from the public domain that is specific to business to business data (B2B), never personal data.
- We provide Business Data to help our customers promote their offerings to other businesses.
- It is in the interest of individuals whose personal data we process for us to maintain healthy and accurate information so that businesses can better reach the most relevant business contacts – promoting the legitimate interests of the individual and our customer.
N.B. for more information about our legitimate interest, please take the time to review GLOBALDATABASE - GDPR READY.
