Privacy And Data

We believe that it should be easy for you to understand what data we hold about you, how we use that information and who has access to that data. Within the links below are our detailed policies covering all aspects of privacy and data protection and over the next 12 months, we'll be updating these as part of our internal data audit ahead of the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) coming into force. 

What are we doing for GDPR?

In anticipation of changes to data protection law, we've committed to a full audit of our systems and processes related to all aspects of using your data. This process is being headed up by our Head of Membership Support and Engagement and will see all the documentation on this page updated along with potential new policies being introduced to ensure we are fully compliant with the new regulations.
