Only authorised users should have access.  It is necessary to collect some limited personal data to do this, and doing so does not unduly prejudice your interests, fundamental rights or freedoms.

We may also process your personal data for marketing purposes to send you insights, information, materials and invites relating to the services of FTI and/or other N-Site panel members. We consider that we have a legitimate interest to use your personal data for these marketing purposes considering your interest in N-Site, the materials published on the site and the connection with related services that we and other N-Site panel members offer. Processing your data in this way does not unduly prejudice your interests, fundamental rights or freedoms and you are able to opt out of our processing of your data for such reasons at any time by contacting [nsite@fticonsulting.com] or using the “unsubscribe” function included within any marketing emails that you receive.

Such panel members will operate as separate and independent controllers of your personal data for such purposes and the processing will be subject to the terms of each panel members’ own privacy policy which FTI cannot guarantee as providing the same or no less than equivalent protection as the standards that FTI applies to its own processing. However, FTI uses reasonable endeavours to ensure that appropriate protection is afforded to any data shared with the panel members and that data is processed in accordance with applicable law.
