Database Management & Regulatory Compliance:
Registered readers will receive an email as each magazine is published (maximum 6 per year). Please ignore and advise us should you receive other emails as these will be fraudulent. Reader emails are not shared with other organisations or used for any purpose other than to advise of new e-magazine being available for download or for questions/reminders concerning registration or subscription. Registered readers may cancel at any time with effect from the next publication.
Since the publishers started in 2010, there have been increasingly more regulations on using personal data without consent. There is some divergence between consumer and b2b usage of such data. It is not in the interest of the publishers to distribute their e-magazine to people with little or no interest. At all times we try to comply with regulations, but sometimes regional requirements make this difficult - the reason why we make it extremely easily to stop future emails.
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) concerning the rules around email consent will tighten from May 2018. Contractors World e-magazines has always collected minimum information in compliance with requirements that satisfy Legitimate Interests compliance under which we only distribute emails with links to the magazine to those companies in the construction and associated industries who, by the nature of their occupation could find editorial content of interest. We have made it extremely simple (one click) to be removed from all future emails. A request to be removed is recorded so that it cannot be inadvertently used. No personal information such as gender, age, home address, mobile telephone, etc is ever requested. Information such as job title is optional.
Individuals may receive an email for the first time with a download link, if the email address was obtained:
NOTE: The publishers never buy email databases or use automatic web email harvesting systems.
All new registrations are scrutinized by the publisher who, at his discretion, may refuse an address if it indicates that there is reasonable doubt to consider the person's activities not relevant to any part or all of the editorial content.
To ensure full compliance with GDPR regulations outside legitimate interest, the publishers ask each recipient of an email relating to the e-magazine, to confirm their data stored and update as appropriate. Where a recipient updates and confirms their interest on-line, they will be asked to confirm their details by email to prevent fraudulent registrations.
There are no restrictions on who may register for the free e-magazines. However, if they are outside the requirements of 'legitimate interest' as applied by the publishers, they will need to complete a more detailed registrations form which is then subject to email confirmation.
