The personal data collected varies and may include information that you provide, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, and background information required to apply for a job.
We may also automatically collect information about the devices you use to interact with our website. The information we automatically collect may include IP address, device identifier, web browser, and browsing information collected through cookies and other tracking technologies on our website. We may also automatically collect information about how you use our website, such as what you have searched for and viewed.

CDIS uses your personal data to fulfill your requests for information, process your requests to participate in conferences and events, personalize content that you view or receive on the website, evaluate and improve our services, distribute newsletters and alerts to you, recruit and evaluate job applicants, analyze the websites’ performance and functioning, prevent fraud, comply with all applicable laws and accomplish other purposes you may initiate or request. In some situations, the collection of personal data may be required for the operation of the website, or we may use it in the course of our business activities, including in connection with some client services, for example, to provide certain services or products such as our benchmarking products. We may combine and/or analyze personal data to evaluate and offer content and services most relevant to you. We may keep any of your personal data on file and use it to contact you.
Our website does not track you by collecting personal data about your online activities over time and across third party websites or online services. Accordingly, we do not alter our data collection and use practices in response to “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers.
Our processing of your personal data for the purposes mentioned above is based:
Disclosure of personal data: data recipients and international data transfers
Personal data collected in the course of CDIS business activities, including in connection with some client services, as well as on our website may be transferred from time to time to CDIS subsidiaries and their personnel across our global organization, as well as to our third party service providers located throughout the world, including in countries where the local law may grant you fewer rights than you have in your own country. Where required by law, we have put in place legal mechanisms designed to ensure adequate data protection of your personal data that is processed by CDIS subsidiaries and third party service providers, including the transfer of your personal data to countries other than the one in which you reside.
CDIS will not intentionally disclose or transfer (and will take reasonable steps to prevent the unauthorized or accidental disclosure of) your personal data to third parties without your consent or as otherwise permitted by law.
You should be aware that whenever you publicly disclose information online, that information could be collected and used by others. CDIS is not responsible for any action or policies of any third parties who collect information that users publicly disclose in any such forums on our website.
If you would like to disconnect a social media account from us, refer to the settings of that social network account and its provider.
CDIS has implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security to protect personal data from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Only authorized CDIS personnel and third party service providers are provided access to personal data, and these employees and service providers are required to treat this information as confidential. Despite these precautions however, CDIS cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to your personal data.
The Sites are not designed for or directed at children 16 years of age or younger, and CDIS does not intentionally collect or maintain personal data about anyone under this age.
Where granted by applicable law, you may have the right to request access to the personal data that we have collected about you for the purposes of reviewing, modifying, or requesting deletion of the data. You may also have the right to request a copy of the personal data that we have collected about you and to have any inaccuracies in that data corrected. In certain circumstances, you may also request that we cease processing your personal data.
If you would like to make a request to access, review, or correct the personal data we have collected about you, or to discuss how we process your personal data, please contact us. We will make reasonable attempts to promptly investigate, comply with, or otherwise respond to your requests as may be required by applicable law. Different laws may prevent us from providing access to your personal data or otherwise fully complying with your request depending upon the circumstances and the request, such as for example, where producing your information may reveal the identity of someone else. We reserve the right to charge an appropriate fee for complying with your request where allowed by applicable law, and/or deny your requests where they may be manifestly unfounded, and/or excessive, or otherwise objectionable or unwarranted under applicable law.
In addition, and where granted by local law, you have the legal right to lodge a complaint with a competent data protection authority.
