Information we collect
We collect information from you when you visit our site, subscribe to our blog or complete a form. When completing a form you may be asked to enter your name, email address and other information.
The information we collect through our forms may be used in the following ways:
- To personalise your experience;
- To improve our website;
- To administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site feature;
- To send relevant emails.
How we collect information
As it is not technically possible for you to complete a form and your data not being processed by our CRM (once you hit submit your details are sent to the CRM and stored), we have to obtain your consent or simply cannot complete your request. If you have questions on this or would like to access a gated piece of content without completing a form contact email@example.com with your request.
How long we store information
We intend to retain data from opted in contacts until they revoke that op-in or until they haven’t engaged with any Episode Consultants content for two years as we do not want to unsubscribe any of our followers from our blog or marketing updates unless they do so themselves. Customer data will be stored for an indefinite period in order to comply with requirements around reporting and accounting but also in order to provide customers with copies of previously completed work if required. Contacts who are engaged in active sales conversations will have their data stored for the same length of time as customers. This is to facilitate longer sales cycles as well as to comply with requirements around reporting.

This does not include trusted third parties that support us in operating our website or servicing our visitors as long as these partners comply with our privacy guidelines. We may be required to release information when this is mandatory to comply with the law or to protect your or our rights, property or safety.
