Foteb Privacy and Data Protection Policy

New legislation known as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) came into force on 25 May 2018. The legislation includes the key right for you to be informed, clearly and transparently, about the way in which we gather, use and store your personal data (any information which identifies you or which can be identified as relating to you personally). We are required to provide you with information on the handling of your personal data and what you can do if you have any concerns.

This policy therefore sets out the ways in which FOTEB uses, stores and protects your data

We only store information given to us by you in person or via email, post or telephone. This is used for the purposes of:

maintaining accurate membership records;

contacting you regarding upcoming events

to meet any legal or compliance requirements.

We will only process your personal information for these purposes, or otherwise as notified and agreed to by you, or as we are permitted to do in accordance with data protection laws.

We do not collect or store sensitive personal data (such as information relating to health, religion, political affiliation or ethnicity) about our members.

We will never sell your personal data to third parties. Your information is only available to the Committee who specifically require access to it in order to carry out the tasks listed above.

We will only use and store information for so long as it is required for the purposes it was collected for.

This privacy policy only applies to the collection of your personal data by us and the use of that data by us.

You have the right to have your information amended or deleted by emailing and detailing the changes you want. Please also contact us by the above means if you wish to exercise any of your other rights under GDPR such as to obtain a copy of the personal data we hold about you, or if you have any other concerns.
