Exploring Africa’s opportunities through trade, finance & innovation

 

The dynamics surrounding trade and infrastructure finance for Africa are changing. On November 13th, 475 industry leaders attended GTR Africa London 2019 to discuss how these industries are evolving.

Established as a key annual gathering for a wide range of domestic and international trade, export and infrastructure finance professionals from the African region, the event provided multi-format sessions allowing delegates to hear the latest developments on a range of topics including ECA and infrastructure finance, sustainable development, fintech innovations and more. With 34 countries represented, the event is fast becoming the leading London-based trade finance gathering for Africa-focused corporates and financiers, with the aim to unlock a valuable dividend for companies currently working with and within Africa.

Join us again in 2020 to broaden your horizons and forge new relationships focused on high quality and long-term investments in Africa.

          Data protection law

          The Data Protection Act 1998 described how organisations – including Exporta Publishing & Events Ltd – must collect, handle and store personal information. These rules apply regardless of whether data is stored electronically, on paper or on other materials. To comply with the law, personal information collected must be stored safely, not disclosed unlawfully and used fairly.

          The Data Protection Act is underpinned by eight important principles. These say that personal data must:

          • Be processed fairly and lawfully
          • Be obtained only for specific, lawful purposes
          • Be adequate, relevant and not excessive
          • Be accurate and kept up to date
          • Not be held for any longer than necessary
          • Processed in accordance with the rights of data subjects
          • Be protected in appropriate ways
          • Not be transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA), unless that country of territory also ensures an adequate level of protection

Subject to any necessary consents, we also monitor and/or record the different Sites you visit and actions taken on those Sites, e.g. content viewed or searched for. If you are a registered user (e.g. a subscriber or taking a trial), when you log on, this places a cookie on your machine. This enables your access to content and services that

          • for marketing purposes (subject to your rights to opt-in and opt-out of receiving certain marketing communications) – see paragraph 3 below;
          • for advertising purposes, although the information used for these purposes does not identify you personally. Please see paragraph 5 below for more details;
          • to protect or comply with our legal rights and obligations; and
          • to enable our journalists to contact and interact with you online in connection with any content you may post to our Sites.

          5.      Cookies and similar technologies

          All our Sites use cookies and similar technical tools to collect information about your access to the Site and the services we provide.

          What is a cookie?

          When you enter some sites, your computer will be issued with a cookie. Cookies are text files that identify your computer to servers. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used.

          Many sites do this whenever a user visits their site in order to track traffic flows, recording those areas of the site that have been visited by the computer in question, and for how long.

          Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. Selecting not to receive means that certain personalised services Exporta Publishing & Events Ltd offers cannot then be provided to that user.

           

          Why do we use cookies?

          1. Log In – Where we provide log in mechanisms for site users a cookie is created at login and for the duration of the session. Each cookie contains a unique reference number only (no personal information) which is used to confirm you are authorised.
          2. Analytics – To allow us to keep track of traffic to our website we use cookies. The cookies simply tell us if you have previously visited our website so we can get more accurate figures for New vs Returning visitors.

          We may use cookies to:

          • remember that you have used the Site before; this means we can identify the number of unique visitors we receive to different parts of the Site. This allows us to make sure we have enough capacity for the number of users that we get and make sure that the Site runs fast enough
          • remember your login session so you can move from one page to another within the Site;
          • store your preferences or your user name and password so that you do not need to input these details every time you visit the Site;
          • customise elements of the layout and/or content of the pages of Site for you;
          • record activity on our Sites so that we understand how you use our Sites enabling us to better tailor our content, services and marketing to your needs;
          • collect statistical information about how you use the Site so that we can improve the Site; and
          • gather information about the pages on the Site that you visit, and other information about other websites that you visit, so as to place you in a “market segment”. This information is only collected by reference to the IP address that you are using, but does include information about the county and city you are in, together with the name of your internet service provider.

          Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that, or to notify you each time a cookie is set.

          6.      E-mail tracking

          E-mail tracking is a method for monitoring the e-mail delivery to those subscribers who have opted-in to receive marketing e-mails from GTR, including GTR Africa, GTR Asia, GTR Americas, GTR Europe, GTR Mena, GTR eNews, Third party e-mails and GTR Ventures.

          Why do we track e-mails?

          So that we can better understand our users’ needs, we track responses, subscription behaviour and engagement to our e-mails – for example, to see which links are the most popular in newsletters. They enable us to understand the consumers journey through metrics including open rate, click-through rate, bounces and unsubscribes. Any other purposes for which Exporta Publishing & Events Ltd wishes to use your personal data will be notified to you and your personal data will not be used for any such purpose without obtaining your prior consent.

          How do you track GTR eNewsletters?

          To do this, we use pixel GIFs, also known as “pixel tags” – these are small image files that are placed within the body of our e-mail messages. When that image is downloaded from our web servers, the e-mail is recorded as being opened. By using some form of digitally time-stamped record to reveal the exact time and date that an e-mail was received or opened, as well the IP address of the recipient.
