Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Transferring your information outside of Europe

As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Union (“EU”). By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EU. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If we transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy. If you use our services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU in order to provide you with those services.


To comply with GDPR, The People Space has carried out a Legitimate Interests Assessment which is documented below:

Purpose of Processing

The People Space has a legitimate interest to process personal data relating to HR decision makers and budget holders in organisations in the UK and rest of Europe in order to promote itself. The data is acquired from list brokers, who gather this data from publicly-available sources and directly from the companies concerned.

Lawful Business Objective

The processing is necessary for business-to-business marketing purposes; a lawful business objective specifically identified by the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 (PECR). Recital 47 of the GDPR identifies direct marketing as a legitimate use of personal information.

Reasonable Expectation

The data subjects are senior business people with decision making and budgetary responsibilities and can reasonably expect to be contacted with marketing material relating to their professional roles.

Adequate, Relevant & Limited

The data collected is limited to names of senior managers and directors, their job titles, company addresses, company landline telephone numbers and corporate email addresses. If a person leaves their role, their name and contact details are deleted from the database.

Opt Out

If a data subject requests that their data is removed from the database, it is removed or supressed so that it cannot be accessed or added again at a later date.

Valuable Service

The People Space provides a valuable service to senior HR and people leaders with timely, expert and practical insights to help them in their job role and with personal development. In the absence of The People Space and similar high-quality service providers, people leaders would not have access to learnings and information to help them upskill and adapt to changes in the business world, which would have a detrimental effect on the success of their businesses and the wider economy.
