INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT, AND HOW WE USE IT
士 THE GOOD ONE collects information from you when you create your account for the Site, request copies of publications, seek additional information regarding our services or employment opportunities, or register for conferences and other 士 THE GOOD ONE-sponsored events. If you do not provide such information, you will not be able to create an account for the Site, request copies of publications, seek additional information regarding our services or employment opportunities. Some of 士 THE GOOD ONE registration, enrollment, account setup and other forms may ask you to give us contact information, unique personal identifiers, financial information, subject areas of interest and/or demographic information. We may use this data to tailor your experience at the Site with relevant 士 THE GOOD ONE materials or, if applicable, to assess candidacy and qualifications for employment with 士 THE GOOD ONE.
We sometimes aggregate demographic information, and the types of systems and browsers of users for internal purposes, so that we may better understand the Site’s user population, identify subject areas of interest, and determine whether the Site is designed to work with the computer settings of a majority of our visitors. 士 THE GOOD ONE also may conduct user surveys on the Web or use technologies to provide 士 THE GOOD ONE with information on a number of areas, such as user identity, user viewing habits, whether or not users found what they were searching for, whether the Site content is relevant to user needs, and the like. 士 THE GOOD ONE uses the information gathered from such surveys to improve our web content, navigation, and overall visitor experience and to provide you with relevant 士 THE GOOD ONE materials.
Any personal information that is provided, such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, subject areas of interest, etc., allows 士 THE GOOD ONE to inform you about updates to the service and to notify you about other products and services offered by 士 THE GOOD ONE that may be of interest to you. We will not sell, share, or rent or otherwise make available any of that information to other parties, except that we may disclose the information to third parties who perform services on our behalf and have a need to access the information in connection with those services. Any third parties will only process this information to the extent to which and within the limits that 士 THE GOOD ONE itself is permitted to process that data. In addition, 士 THE GOOD ONE may disclose your contact information in response to inquiries by rights owners in connection with allegations of infringement of copyright or other proprietary rights arising from information that you have posted on the Site or otherwise provided to 士 THE GOOD ONE. Individuals that subscribe to e-mail newsletters are given the opportunity to opt-out of promotions, news, and information at the time of sign up. 士 THE GOOD ONE also provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the points where we request information.
HOW WE MIGHT SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
The third parties with whom we may need to share personal information to help us provide services and products to you and to run our Website include: our subsidiaries or affiliates; our advisors; our third party service providers who process information on our behalf to help run some of our internal business operations including email distribution, IT services and marketing and events services; law enforcement bodies in order to comply with any legal obligation or court order.
Because 士 THE GOOD ONE is a global organization we need to transfer personal information which is collected on the Site or through other means across the 士 THE GOOD ONE group of companies to help operate our business efficiently. This also includes third parties located in different countries around the world, including outside of the EEA. These arrangements may involve your personal information being located in various countries around the world e.g. USA where privacy laws differ. We only make these arrangements or transfers where we are satisfied that adequate levels of protection are in place to protect information held in that country. In addition, the Site may be viewed and accessed anywhere in the world including countries that may not have laws regulating the use and transfer of personally identifiable information. By using the Site, submitting information through this site, or submitting personal information to 士 THE GOOD ONE through other means you voluntarily consent to such international transfer and hosting of such information to those countries and parties.
From time to time, we may send you information regarding services, publications, products, and events that we perceive may be of interest to you or your business.

If, at any time, you prefer not to receive further communications from us in any or all forms (except in connection with information, products, publications, events or services that you specifically request), you will have the ability to unsubscribe from such communications by means of a link provided in every e-mail that is sent to you by us.
We may collect e-mail addresses at the point of subscription from users who wish to receive e-mail notification of publications and press releases in identified subject areas of interest, and/or those who send us e-mail messages or express interest regarding our services or employment opportunities, or register for conferences and other 士 THE GOOD ONE-sponsored events.

The processing of the data entered during registration takes place on the basis of your consent of the GDPR laws. You can revoke your consent at any time.

The granted consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation. The data deposited with us for the purpose of obtaining the newsletter will be saved by us from the newsletter until your cancellation and will be deleted after cancellation of the newsletter. Data that has been stored for other purposes with us (such as e-mail addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.
