Personal information is any information that can be used to identify you.

We may also collect details of your visits to our website, for example your location data. We use this to provide you with the information, services or products that you’re interested in and which are most relevant to you.
Keeping your information up-to-date
To make sure we always have the most up-to-date information about how to contact you, we may also, from time to time, update your records to reflect any changes to your personal information.
How do we use your personal information?
As a business development community, our main mission to support your business grow through helping you expand your business network, connecting you with specific business owners, providing you with opportunities for collaboration and mutual support. In short we connect people to make things happen.
