Types of data we collect

Website Cookies
Like most websites, Dubai Week websites use cookies to collect information.  Cookies are small data files which are placed on your computer or other devices (such as smart ‘phones or ‘tablets’) as you browse this website.  They are used to ‘remember’ when your computer or device accesses our websites and collect information about browsing behaviour when you access this website via the same computer or device so that we can continue to develop and improve this website.  This includes statistical information regarding the use of our website and does not collect or record information on your name, address or other contact details.

Google Analytics
When someone visits a Dubai Week website, we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not allow Google to make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Lead Forensics
We use Lead Forensics to identify the public IP address of visitors to our websites via a line of Java script inserted into webpages. Lead Forensics uses the IP address to tell us the corporate information of the organisation registered to that IP address (individuals are not identified.) Lead Forensics also records the activities undertaken by these visitors on our websites. This information may be used by our businesses for follow up marketing with relevant individuals at the organisations.

Mailing Lists
As part of the sign-up process to join our mailing list, enter competitions, or to request further information about a particular product, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to send you the information that you have requested, to contact you if you have a legitimate interest in our other products and services, we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re satisfied.We use Adestra to deliver our newsletter and email marketing campaigns. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter.

Exhibitors and sponsors
