At BDA GLOBAL CORP, we recognize that privacy is an important issue, so we design and operate our services with the protection of your privacy in mind at all times. This Privacy Policy outlines the types of personal protection we assure when you use BDA GLOBAL CORP’s website, as well as some of the steps we take to safeguard it.



We collect information about you if:

  1. you use this (or any other BDA GLOBAL CORP) website;
  2. you enquire about, or engage BDA GLOBAL CORP to provide, its Services (either in a personal capacity, or as a representative for your employer or client);
  3. the use of your personal information is reasonably necessary to provide our Services (in these circumstances, your personal information may be disclosed to us by our client who may, for example, be your employer or service provider, or we may obtain your personal information from a range of public or subscription sources, directly from you, or from your associates or persons known to you);
  4. you apply for a position with BDA GLOBAL CORP;
  5. you attend an BDA GLOBAL CORP hosted or sponsored event or webinar;
  6. you contact us with any other enquiry, complaint or notice.




The following is a summary of the types of personal information we collect, and the purposes for which that information is used.

Website Users

BDA GLOBAL CORP collects your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and any other personally-identifiable information which you voluntarily provide as “comments” when you submit an inquiry through the “Contact Us” tool. BDA GLOBAL CORP also collects other background information about you in connection with career-related inquiries that you submit through its website.

BDA GLOBAL CORP may also automatically collect personal information (through the use of Cookies or similar technologies, including your IP address, device identifier, browsing patterns on its websites, click stream data, and HTP protocol elements) to ensure the effective operation of the website or in order to align the presentation of our Services more closely to your requirements (for example, processing information about your broad geographic location to serve you with a local version of this website). This tracking information is stored in an anonymous, aggregated and non-personal format, and is also used to understand and analyze trends, to administer the websites, and to learn about user behavior on the websites.

In certain instances, BDA GLOBAL CORP may use IP addresses to help identify you when BDA GLOBAL CORP feels, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary to enforce compliance with this Privacy Policy, to protect its services, websites, systems, information, employees, business partners, subsidiaries, affiliates, users, customers or others, or when required by law or for law enforcement purposes.

BDA GLOBAL CORP’s Former, Current and Prospective Clients

If you submit an enquiry to BDA GLOBAL CORP about our Services (either over the website, or by emailing, telephoning or meeting with one of our colleagues), then we will process information such as your name, job title and contact information in order to respond to your enquiry.

If you attend an BDA GLOBAL CORP event or webinar, or if you associate with an BDA GLOBAL CORP colleague at, for example, an industry event, then BDA GLOBAL CORP may collect basic personal information, such as contact details, which you voluntarily provide (for example, by filling in a form or handing over a business card) in order to facilitate your participation in the event, and for the management of our relationship with you as an actual or prospective client.

If you or the organization you are associated with becomes an BDA GLOBAL CORP client, then we may process your personal information in order to:

  1. Carry out “Know Your Client” checks and screening prior to starting a new engagement (as well as basic contact information, this may mean processing compliance related information such as proof of your identity, information about your professional background, history of directorships and, in some circumstance, details of any criminal convictions or adverse media coverage);
  2. Carry out background checks for the purposes of complying with anti-money laundering and terrorist financing laws;
  3. Carry out client communication, service, billing and administration;
  4. Deal with client complaints; and
  5. Administer claims.
  6. Taking account of applicable marketing laws, we also process personal information about our clients (former, current and prospective) in order to:
  7. Send our clients newsletters, know-how, promotional material and other marketing communications;
  8. Invite our clients to events (and arrange and administer those events).

Information Sharing

We do not rent or sell your personally identifying information to other companies or individuals, unless we have your consent. We may share such information in any of the following limited circumstances:

  1. We have your consent.
  2. We provide such information to trusted businesses or persons for the sole purpose of processing personally identifying information on our behalf. When this is done, it is subject to agreements that oblige those parties to process such information only on our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy and appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
  3. We conclude that we are required by law or have a good faith belief that access, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of BDA GLOBAL CORP, its users or the public.

In the event of a transfer of ownership of BDA GLOBAL CORP, such as acquisition by or merger with another company, we will provide notice before any personally identifying information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

We may share aggregated information with others.
