We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. We have established the following personal data control mechanisms:

Surveys & Promotional Offers

We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).

We may send you event reminders close to the date of an event or service you have registered for, or information on events or services similar to those you have previously registered for or other communications we are obliged to send under a legal or contractual obligation.

You may receive marketing communications from us if you have expressly requested information from us about our services, other events or services, or made an enquiry, or if you provided us with your details when you entered a competition or registered for a promotion. We will not however send you generic marketing about us unless you have expressly consented to receive it.

Third Party Marketing

You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages by following the opt-out or unsubscribe’ links in any marketing message sent to you or by Contacting Rume2 management.

Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of a product/service purchase, product/service experience, event or other transaction, or where we need to keep your contact details or make contact with you for contractual performance or legitimate interest purposes, or compliance with a legal obligation.
