Privacy statement

www.womentalkrealestate.org is a site operated by Women Talk Real Estate Limited (the “Company” or "We" or “Us” ). We are registered in England and Wales under company number 10538314 and have our registered office at 26 Webster Road, London, United Kingdom SE16 4DF.

Welcome to www.womentalkrealestate.org (the “Site”). We are a not-for-profit company (limited by guarantee) with a mission to increase the visibility of female professionals in the European commercial real estate (CRE) industry.

The Company aims to realise its mission by connecting female real estate professionals subscribed to the Site (the “Speakers”) with event organisers and journalists subscribed to the Site (the “Users”) for speaking opportunities (the “Services”). The Users and Speakers are collectively referred to as the “Subscribers”.

Our services are provided free of charge thanks to the generous support of industry sponsors (the “Sponsors”).

Subscriber privacy and the security of Subscriber personal data are very important to Women Talk Real Estate. Women Talk Real Estate is dedicated to protecting the privacy of its Subscribers. We may amend this privacy statement from time to time and Subscribers will be notified of any such changes. Subscribers should read this privacy statement on a regular basis.

In order to register and gain access to the Site, we will ask for contact information such as name and email address. We use this information for internal purposes such as tracking Subscriber usage and providing Subscribers with email updates. Except as stated in this Privacy Policy, Subscriber personal information will never be sold or given to a third party.

We may use information that Subscribers voluntarily post and information shown on Subscribers’ profiles for marketing purposes. We shall notify Subscribers if we intend to use their information for such purposes.

Subscribers using our Services receive service-essential messages at the e-mail address they have provided to us. These messages are strictly limited to communication necessary to use our services. For example, we send new users an automated message with their username and password and send an automated message confirming places on training courses, etc.

In addition to such service-essential messages, we offer Subscribers the option to receive information about us, our products, services and special offers through our “keep in touch” form or to Subscribers who opt in to receive this information. If a Subscriber does not, or no longer, wishes to receive such information they can opt out of receiving such information by contacting us on viktorija@womentalk-re.org or by unsubscribing by following the unsubscribe link on the email received.

When Speakers subscribe to our service, they agree to receive invitations to speak at events or to the media. It is at their discretion whether they accept the invitation.

Speakers will have two options of how to receive the User enquiries: User enquiries will go directly to them or a recipient they designate, or they can chose to opt out of media enquiries all together. There is no option for Subscribers to opt out of event enquiries.

When Users contact a Speaker, we will be copied into the initial enquiry for the purpose of tracking the use of the Site and monitoring interaction between Speakers and Users. Once the Speaker or the designated person in charge of the Speaker’s correspondence responds, the communication becomes direct thus we will no longer be copied into it unless the User or the Speaker actively adds them to the correspondence.

Like most websites, our servers use log files to list requests made by Subscribers to the server. We use log files to store information such as internet protocol addresses, browser type, internet service provider, visited pages, date and time used and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. This information is not linked to any personally identifiable information. We will use this information to administer our site and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical, to monitor and analyse how the Site is used and survey purposes and to improve the user experience and security of the Site.

Also like most other sites, we use cookies. Cookies are identifiers that we transfer to Subscribers’ computers through their browser to enable us to recognize their browser. Cookies tell us how and when pages on our Site are visited and by how many people. These cookies do not collect personal information. We do not combine the information collected through cookies with other personal information to further identify Subscribers. For detailed information on the cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them see our Cookie policy.

We may give certain information to third party service providers for the purposes of providing services to us. For example, we may: i) provide email address data to a third party sending newsletters on our behalf; ii) give access to web developers to improve our service; and iii) any other such uses.

This Site contains links to other sites. We are not responsible for the terms of use or privacy practices of these other sites. Use of those sites is governed by their own terms and policies. In particular, the booking process for events and training run by us will be run by Eventbrite and any information Subscribers provide to them will be governed by their own terms and policies.

We may allow outside companies to display ads on the Site. These ads may contain cookies whose data is collected by external advertising companies. We are not responsible for the cookies or privacy practices of these other companies.

All information Subscribers provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given Subscribers (or where Subscribers have chosen) a password which enables access certain parts of our Site, the Subscriber is responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask Subscribers not to share their password with anyone.

Whenever Subscribers voluntarily post information to their profile, they accept that certain information may be used by us for marketing purposes and that information can be accessed by the public. Subscriber Profile Content will be available for download to other Subscribers. We are not responsible for their use of this information.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect Subscriber personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at the Subscriber’s own risk. Once we have received the Subscriber’s information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Subscribers may request information on the data about them that we store, the purpose for which we store it, the legal basis for storing it, how long we will keep the data and who receives the data and for what purpose. We will respond to such written requests within 30 days of submission. Subscribers are entitled to request correction of incorrect data or the deletion thereof at any time. We will correct and or delete such data within 15 business days of receipt of the request. Such data will not be recoverable.
