  1. How do we collect your data?

i-media collect and store your information from four main sources:

    1. Via our online channels actively; if you contact us from our website using a contact form, email address, competition entry page, Drive Panel sign-up or if this leads you to contact us via telephone. If you contact us via our Social Media channels (Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin) either via direct message or using our contact details.


    1. Via our website passively; through automated web analytics data which does not contain personal information.


    1. As a legitimate interest; if the company you work for already does business with us or we are introduced to your company via an Out of Home Specialist or Advertising Agency, we obtain and retain company contact information through our CRM system, Salesforce.


    1. From an outside source, to initiate contact; If your company does not already do business with us, but we consider our making contact to be in your business interest, we will contact you directly. We use the services of a third party provider ALF Insight. For more detail on ALF’s GDPR policies, please visit their website or to opt out of their database, please email adeline.bonnet@mbi.london.



  1. How will we use your data?

i-media collects data in order to understand what you need and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:


Reply to you in the event that you have contacted i-media. Common examples include an advertising enquiry or a competition entry. At no point does i-media collect this personal data via these channels without your submission of that data.


If you visit our website, whether or not you contact us as a result, the data about your visit is automatically collected. This includes the pages of our site that you visit, whether you arrived directly or via Search Engine, and the information that your browser transmits to us (such as browser type and version). We use this anonymised data to assess the performance of our website.


If you work for a company we would identify as a potential customer, we may source your name, role and work contact details and use this information to contact you via telephone or email directly, to establish contact.


If you do business with us, we collect data in order to carry out our contractual obligations regarding that business. This can be in person, over email, telephone or by fax. The data beyond that used in the initial introduction will only be provided by you; for example what you are buying and how you are paying.



  1. How do we store your data?

We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.


CRM System: Contact and sales contract data is stored to maintain a database of your contact details so that we can identify you during repeat business contact. Salesforce is a reputable and GDPR compliant CRM system and the only tool to log contact and contract data i-media use.


Web Analytics: Anonymised data is preserved and aggregated to help us understand and improve our website’s performance. None of this automatically collected information can be used to identify you.


Secure Payment Information:  Payment is received via BACS which happens directly and no personal data is transferred in the process. When i-media make a payment we retain the bank details provided on the invoice. For accounting purposes all records are kept for 7 years.



  1. Marketing

We only send marketing information we believe is relevant and in accordance with GDPR.


Our Marketing contact list provides a way to keep only those designated ‘legitimate interests’ up to date with our business proposition, and only then via email. Legitimate Interests are constituted of contacts at companies with whom we already do business, or have done within the last 5 years. For further legal detail on Legitimate Interests, click here.


Every email contains the option to manually unsubscribe, which will automatically remove you from future Marketing. If your email address becomes defunct, the email will have been registered as not deliverable and that email address will also automatically be removed.
