At Selling Simplified Group, Inc. (Reg. No. 27-4882798) (“SSG”), we take your privacy seriously. This Privacy Notice (this “Notice”) states our policy and practices regarding the collection and use of information you submit to us, or which we collect via various channels (including our websites; through written correspondence, including e-mail; or through any of our offices or websites globally). When we refer to SSG, “we”, “us” or “our” we mean our entire company, including our divisions, subsidiaries and affiliates.
Through this Notice we aim to inform you about the types of personal data we collect, the purposes for which we use the data and the ways in which the data is handled. We also aim to satisfy the obligation of transparency under the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”) and national laws implementing GDPR.
Please read this Notice carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your data and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our websites or services. By accessing or using our websites, you agree to this Notice, subject to your rights as provided by this Notice or applicable law. This Notice may change from time to time (see Section 16 “Changes to Our Notice”).
Generally, we collect personal data from two groups of people: our marketing customers and our subscribers. “Personal data” means information that personally identifies someone or that relates to an identified or identifiable person, in accordance with applicable law.
i. Business Customer Data – When we enter into a relationship with our business customers, we will collect the personal data that we need to provide our services to them, including name; business contact information, including phone number, email address, and mailing address; company name; job title; and billing, transaction, and credit card information. We may also collect additional information provided by our customers when they communicate with us.
ii. Subscriber Data – We collect certain data about individuals when they subscribe to our content, including name; business contact information, such phone number, email address, and mailing address; company name; and job title. This information may be publicly available or provided directly to us, such as by our customers or other third-party providers, as permitted by applicable law. This data may include potential subscribers or other parties that have demonstrated an interest in our services or that have registered to attend our corporate events.
i. Through the SSG Websites – Both customers and leads may access our websites and/or communicate with us. In general, you can visit the SSG websites without identifying yourself or revealing any personal data. However, you may choose to provide us with personal data (e.g., via our ‘say hello’ or ‘let’s connect’ web forms). Within the SSG websites, you can make requests for information, register to receive materials, and in some cases, order products or services.
ii. From You – You may provide us additional personal data, such as when you contact us by phone or mail, or when you register for or attend corporate events. In these cases, we will collect your contact information as well as information regarding your communications with us.
iii. From Other Sources – We may collect information, including personal data, from publicly available sources or from other third parties. To the extent that we collect your personal data from these sources, we will treat it in accordance with this Notice, and we will honor your rights regarding your personal data as outlined in this Notice.
You can be assured that information you provide voluntarily will only be used in connection with your business relationship with SSG. We will hold and use your personal data for our legitimate business purposes including:
SSG uses credit card information only for payment processing and related purposes.
Under GDPR, the main grounds that we rely upon in order to process personal data of customers, leads, other users of our websites, and event attendees are the following:
i. Necessary for entering into, or performing, a contract – In order to perform obligations that we undertake in providing a service to you, or in order to take steps at your request to enter into a contract with us, it will be necessary for us to process your personal data.
ii. Necessary for compliance with a legal obligation – We are subject to certain legal requirements which may require us to process your personal data. We may also be obliged by law to disclose your personal data to a regulatory body or law enforcement agency.
iii. Necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests - Either we, or a third party, will need to process your personal data for the purposes of our (or a third party’s) legitimate interests, provided we have established that those interests are not overridden by your rights and freedoms, including your right to have your personal data protected. Our legitimate interests include responding to requests and inquiries from you or a third party, optimising our websites and customer experience, our market research, informing you about our products and services, and ensuring that our operations are conducted in an appropriate and efficient manner.
iv. Consent – We may also ask for your consent to process your personal data in a particular way.
We may disclose your personally identifiable information:
i. To SSG affiliates – When you disclose your personal data to us, we may share it with SSG both inside and outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). For more information regarding our affiliate locations, please see the “Contact Us” section below.
ii. To third-party service providers and contractors – We will share your personal data with trusted third parties where we have retained them to support our business and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal data confidential and to use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them. To the extent that any personal data is provided to third parties outside the EEA, or who will access the information from outside the EEA, we will use approved frameworks, including, with respect to any transfers outside of the EEA or access to the information as above, entering into standard contractual clauses as approved by the European Commission.
iii. To our customers – We may share certain lead information with our customers in accordance with applicable law to allow our customers to connect with potential leads for their products or services. We will not share sensitive personal data with our customers, nor do we share personal data with data brokers.
iv. As required by law – We may disclose your personal data as required by applicable law, regulation or as part of a legal process. If we receive a request from a regulatory body or law enforcement agency, and if permitted under GDPR and other laws, we may disclose certain personal data to such bodies or agencies.
v. To new business owners – If we or our business merges with or is acquired by another business or company, we will share your personal data with the new owners of the business or company and their advisors, provided that we inform the buyer it must use your personal data only for the purposes disclosed in this Notice.
vi. To fulfill the purpose for which you provide it.
vii. To carry out our obligations and enforce rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us.
viii. Otherwise with your consent or as described to you when you provide the data.
We will retain your personal data for the time necessary to provide the services we perform for you or fulfill the purposes outlined in this Notice, and you can always request that we stop processing or delete your personal data. The next section sets out more information on your rights.

To exercise this right, please contact us by us using the details in the “Contact Us” section below.
iv. Right to Object to or Restrict Processing – In certain circumstances, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data, for example, if we are processing your data on the basis of our legitimate interests and there are no compelling legitimate grounds for our processing which override your rights and interests.

The session cookie is never saved nor written to disk, and the information contained in the session cookie is only valid for that particular session and is discarded when the browser is closed.

We have implemented measures designed to secure the information we collect and store about you and will use our reasonable efforts to protect your personal data from unauthorised disclosure and/or access including through the use of network and database security measures, but these cannot guarantee the security of any data which is collected and stored. We use encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data, such as credit card information. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the SSG websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Please note that clicking on links and banner advertisements on our websites can result in your browser accessing a third-party website, where data privacy practices are different to that of SSG.
We are not responsible for, and have no control over, data that is submitted to or collected by these third parties, and if you have any questions about their privacy practices, you should consult their privacy policies.
Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Unfortunately, the transmission of data via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we take commercially reasonable measures to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our websites via third party networks. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Your web browser may let you choose your preference as to whether you want to allow the collection of information about your online activities over time and across different websites or online services.
