Privacy Policy

Who we are

In the privacy policy references to 'we' or 'us' refer to The Sustainability Business Group. This policy will explain what information we collect about you and how we use it.

The information we collect and how

We will collect:

  • Any personal details you type in and submit, such as name, address, email address, etc. We will use this to provide you with relevant information in the future.
  • Data which allows us to recognise you, your preferences, and how you use this website. This saves you from re-entering information when you return to the site. This data is collected by cookies from your navigation around the site. A cookie is a small amount of data which we send to your computer. The data is then stored on your browser or hard disk. Details about disabling these cookies can normally be found in the Help facility provided with your browser.
  • Your IP address (this is your computer’s individual identification number) which is automatically logged by our web server. This is used to note your interest in our website. It is also possible that we will use your IP address to help diagnose problems on our web site.

By submitting your information you consent to the use of that information as set out in this policy. If for any reason our policy does change, we will post the changes on this page so you can view them. If changes occur with which you are unhappy, you can email us with and instruct us to no longer use your information.

It is not possible for us to predict the route which the information will travel (due to the Internet's infrastructure being a global one); this means your information may be temporarily transferred outside the European Economic Area. By submitting your information you consent to this transfer.

By submitting your information and using our web site, you consent to the collection, storage and processing of your personal information by us in the manner set out in this Policy.

The nature of Internet communications means that your communications may be susceptible to data corruption, interception, and delays.

The Sustainability Business Group will not be liable for damages arising out of or in connection with the use of this site in any way. This is a comprehensive limitation of liability that applies to all damages of any kind, including (without limitation) compensatory, direct, indirect, or consequential damages, loss of data, income or profit, loss of or damage to property and claims of third parties.

  • You may contact us at any time to view, amend or delete your personal data, or to exclude it from the usages listed above.
  • To protect your identity, we have "anonymized" your IP address, meaning we never collect your full IP address - this enables us to differentiate you from other website visitors, but does not enable us (or anyone else) to identify you as an individual.
