We do not sell, rent or trade your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes.

Leighton House and Sambourne House have procedures in place to minimise the risk to your privacy and to ensure recordings are managed appropriately in line with data protection legislation. You can also protect your own privacy by muting your microphone, turning your camera off, using an appropriate pseudonymous screen name or avoiding any personal information to be disclosed during the course of the event (for instance, via comments or questions in the platform’s chat, actively participating or sharing your screen).
