GICC Privacy Policy

Your privacy is a top priority at GICC. We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality of your personal information and providing a secure online experience. This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, and protect your information when you visit our website or interact with us in any capacity. GICC Management Consulting and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “GICC,” “us,” or “we”) recognize that your privacy is crucial to you. We are dedicated to safeguarding your privacy and securing your personal information, which includes any data capable of identifying you as an individual. This Privacy Policy outlines how we manage and protect your personal data in relation to GICC’s business activities, such as conferences, events, and client services, as well as on websites, applications, and communications that include a link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, “the Sites”), in our role as data controllers.

Information We Collect

GICC Management Consulting collects personal data, including some client services, during its business operations. We also gather personal data on specific areas of the Sites when you register for or apply for jobs through the GICC Recruitment Portal, create a user profile, subscribe to GICC newsletters and alerts, sign up for conferences and events, and/or participate in public user posting areas (such as bulletin boards, discussion forums, and surveys). The personal data collected may vary and can include information you provide, like your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, fax number, and background details needed for job applications.

We may also automatically collect information about the devices you use to engage with our Sites. This automatically collected information can include IP addresses, device identifiers, web browsers, and browsing data gathered through cookies, web beacons, pixels, clear gifs, and other similar technologies (collectively, “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies”) on our Sites. Additionally, we may automatically collect information about how you utilize the Sites, such as what you have searched for and viewed on the Sites. The information gathered automatically may be linked to a unique identifier and any other personal data you have provided.

GICC may also obtain personal data about you from third parties, like data brokers or aggregators, during its business operations, including in connection with some client services. This comprises demographic, professional, and other publicly available online information, including details you decide to make public through social media platforms and other public online forums. We may merge this data with existing information about you or use it independently for purposes such as benchmarking and data analytics activities (e.g., analyzing recruiting practices across industries, detecting fraud patterns in financial transactions, and foot traffic in retail environments). We will always strive to verify that the third party has provided transparent information about its use of this data, including its disclosure to third parties like GICC, in compliance with applicable laws.

Use of Information

GICC utilizes your personal data to fulfill your requests for information, process your participation in conferences and events, customize the content you view or receive on the Sites, assess and enhance our services, deliver newsletters and alerts, recruit and evaluate job applicants, analyze the performance and functionality of the Sites, publish your letters to the editor or comments, prevent fraud, enforce our terms of use, comply with all applicable laws and corporate reporting obligations, enforce GICC’s agreements, and fulfill other purposes initiated or requested by you. In some cases, the collection of personal data may be necessary for the operation of the Sites, or we may use it in our business activities, including in connection with some client services, such as providing specific services or products like our benchmarking products. We may combine and/or analyze personal data to evaluate and offer content and services most relevant to you. We may retain any of your personal data on file and use it to contact you.

GICC and its service providers may use first and third-party Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies, including web beacons, to manage our Sites and our services and gather analytics about your usage. GICC and its service providers may collect information about whether you open or click any links in the knowledge, research, or event communications that we send to you. The information provided throughout this Privacy Policy about cookies also applies to these other tracking technologies.

Our Sites do not track you by gathering personal data about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Therefore, we do not modify our data collection and usage practices in response to “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers.

The legal grounds for processing your personal data

Our processing of your personal data for the purposes outlined above is based on the following:

  • Our legitimate interests in promoting and safeguarding GICC, fostering and maintaining relationships, recruitment, and delivering our services;
  • Your consent, for instance, when you create a user profile, sign up for our newsletters or alerts, or for business purposes that support web operations, such as enhancing and understanding the quality of your experience on our websites;
  • Compliance with the law when specific information is required to fulfill our legal or regulatory obligations.

Disclosure of personal data: data recipients and international data transfers

Personal data collected during GICC’s business activities, including in connection with some client services, as well as on the Sites, may be transferred from time to time to GICC subsidiaries and affiliates and their personnel throughout our global organization, as well as to our third-party service providers located worldwide, including in countries where local law may provide you with fewer rights than those in your own country. Additionally, the Sites may be viewed and hosted by GICC and our third-party service providers anywhere globally. When required by law, we have established legal mechanisms to ensure adequate data protection of your personal data processed by GICC subsidiaries, affiliates, and third-party service providers, including the transfer of your personal data to countries other than the one where you reside. If you would like more information about these legal mechanisms, which may include the EU’s Standard Contractual Clauses, please get in touch with us at the address below. By using any of the Sites and providing information on any of them, you voluntarily consent to the such cross-border transfer and hosting of such information.

GICC will not intentionally disclose or transfer (and will take reasonable measures to prevent unauthorized or accidental disclosure of) your personal data to third parties without your consent or as otherwise permitted by law, whether for such third parties marketing purposes or otherwise, except as follows. GICC may provide access to your personal data to third-party service providers engaged by GICC to offer services related to the Sites and GICC’s business activities, including in connection with some client services, as agreed upon in our client services agreements. We maintain processes designed to ensure that any processing of personal data by third-party service providers aligns with this Privacy Policy and safeguards the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of your personal data.

We may also share your personal data with third-party service providers who perform services and functions on our behalf to support our interactions with you, such as processing recruitment materials, administering surveys or contests, or communicating with you.

Furthermore, we may disclose information about you:

  • If we are required to do so by law or legal process;
  • To law enforcement authorities or other government officials;
  • When we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity;
  • If disclosure is necessary to protect the vital interests of a person;
  • To protect our property, services, and legal rights;
  • To prevent fraud against GICC, our subsidiaries, affiliates, and/or business partners;
  • To support auditing, compliance, and corporate governance functions; or
  • To comply with all applicable laws.

Additionally, we may disclose or transfer your personal data in the event of a reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, or other transfer or disposition of all or any portion of our business.

Social Networking

The Sites may enable you to sign in and link your social network accounts, including, but not limited to, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube, with GICC. The Sites may also allow you to log in to a GICC account using certain social network account credentials.

By linking your social network account with GICC or logging in to a GICC account using your social network account credentials, you grant us permission to access information made available in your public profile for that social network account. The information accessible in your public profile varies based on the social network and your settings but may include your email address, real name, profile picture, gender, and location. We use the information we obtain from your social network account in accordance with the social network’s terms of use and this Privacy Policy. Please refer to the privacy settings in your social network account for information about what data is shared with GICC and other connected applications and to manage the data shared through your account, including information about your activities using our Sites.

If you wish to disconnect a social media account from us, refer to the settings of that social network account and its provider.


GICC has adopted generally accepted technology and operational security standards to safeguard personal data from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Only authorized GICC personnel and third-party service providers are granted access to personal data, and these employees and service providers are obligated to treat this information as confidential. However, GICC cannot guarantee that unauthorized individuals will not gain access to your personal data.

Data Retention

GICC retains personal data as necessary for the duration of the relevant business relationship.

We may also retain personal data for longer than the duration of the business relationship if we need to protect ourselves against legal claims, use it for analysis or historical record-keeping, or comply with our information management policies and schedules. If you request that we delete your personal data, GICC will make reasonable attempts to delete all instances of the information in its entirety.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

GICC may update this Privacy Policy from time to time to reflect changes in our practices, legal requirements, or industry standards. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy periodically to stay informed about our data protection practices.
