Issues related to data processing as part of subscription or other services purchased from TH are regulated by separate procedures and agreements.
TH declares that it will make every effort to ensure adequate security of the data transmitted, and agrees to carry out measures to prevent third-party interference in the personal data and privacy of the data subjects. Personal data provided will be used for the purposes specified further in the document.
This policy tells you:
- what information we might collect about you
- how we might use that information
- when we might use your details to contact you
- what information of yours we might share with others
- your choices about the personal information you give us
This policy covers the services that are offered by the TH. And sometimes it covers services offered by parts of our Partner that operate as separate companies. But only when those services link to this policy or tell you it applies.
User – a data subject; a person who provides his/her personal data in connection with the use of TH websites.
TH websites – Internet websites operated by or on behalf of TH and its subsidiaries worldwide.
Commercial Information – any information intended directly or indirectly for promoting subscription, services or image of TH.

3. Personal information
Please be advised that the User may contact TH directly (by phone) or by accessing TH’s websites in order to get acquainted with information about the company, programmes and services and to view or listen to specific programmes, without the need to provide his/her personal information. Irrespective of the above, circumstances may arise when the User’s personal information is required to perform a requested service or process. In such cases the User shall be informed about the necessity to provide the data and the ways in which it will be used, thus enabling the User to decide whether to provide or refuse to provide his/her data. Making personal data available may be required when the User is interested in requesting performance of a particular service (for example preparation of an offer, receiving information about subscription) by an entity owned by TH or in situations when the User is interested in taking part in a process or event (for example participation in a conference). The User may then be asked to fill out and send a form/ questionnaire in which he/she will be clearly advised about what kind of personal data will be collected. In situations when the User discloses personal data of a third party (e.g. of a colleague) in a form/questionnaire, TH shall assume the User is in possession of an appropriate permission from the person whose data he/she has disclosed.
Data provided by the User in the abovementioned way is used by TH solely and exclusively for the purpose of performance of a service requested by the User, carrying out a process or arranging participation in an event.
4. How do you protect my personal information?
We’re strongly committed to keeping User information safe and to do this we design our services with maximum safety in mind. At the same time, no service can be completely secure – if you have any concerns that your TH personal information has been put at risk, please get in touch straight away: firstname.lastname@example.org
4.1 Where we store your information
Companies that provide services to us run their services in the European Economic Area. When you give us personal information it could not be being transferred, stored or processed in a location outside the EEA.
5. What types of personal information does the TH collect about me?
We’ll give details about why we need your personal information and how we’ll use it before you begin, unless it’s obvious.

5.3 Information on your activities outside the TH when you talk about us.

6. How long will the TH keep my information?
When you give us any personal information we’ll always stick to these principles:
- we don't hold your information any longer than we have to
- we only hold your information for as long as we do the activities we told you about or have a valid reason to keep it
- we think about what type of information it is, the amount collected, how sensitive it might be and any legal requirements
7. How can the TH use my personal information?
TH has to have a valid reason to use your personal information. It's called the "lawful basis for processing". Sometimes TH might ask your permission to do things, like when you subscribe to an email. Other times, when you'd reasonably expect us to use your personal information, we don't ask your permission, but only when:
- the law says it's fine to use it, and
- it fits with the rights you have
We use your information for these types of things:
- to deliver our services and to provide you with information about them
- to deal with your requests, complaints and enquiries
- to personalize services and give you things more tailored to your tastes If you don't want to receive personalised email you can turn this option off. Email us: [email protected]
- to help us understand what kind of services you might use and sometimes how you might share things with other people
- to recommend things we think might interest you
- to research and innovate
- to contact you about various things
You're not a guinea-pig here, but knowing how you use our services could lead to the next big technology breakthrough.
8. When will the TH use my information to contact me?
We might use your information to contact you about different things, like:
- to update you on any changes to the TH's policies and practices
- to contact you about a request you sent us
- to answer you when you've contacted us, or to respond to a comment or complaint
- to invite you to take part in TH’s events
- for marketing purposes
- to send you notification on your device if you've selected them in your settings
We'll only contact you when we need to or when you've given us permission.
9. What are my rights?
Remember, you're in control of your personal information. You have the right to:
- request a copy of your information
- not let robots make big decisions about you
- to ask us to correct information that's wrong, to delete it or to request that we only use it for certain purposes
- to change your mind, and ask us to stop using your information. For example, unsubscribing from any marketing emails or turning off personalization
Bear in mind, sometimes we might not be able to help. Like if the law tells us we can't.

Such entities are required to use personal data provided to them only for the purpose of rendering a service on behalf of TH and shall treat the User’s personal data as strictly confidential.
