GDPR – 25 May 2018
With the advent of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
CWCT continues to ensure that the privacy of members and customers is protected. We do not sell our databases or share them with third parties.
The databases are stored on our internal server and access is limited to CWCT staff on a need to know basis.
Most of our communication with members is by email and we limit this to notices about technical publications and updates, courses and meetings.
The personal data we retain includes:
- Full name
- Job title
- Company name and address
- Industry type
- Telephone number
- Email address
No financial information (bank, credit card details) is stored.
Each December we write to members with a note of the information we hold giving them the opportunity to check and amend it.
Members may add up to seven additional contacts to our database but must now have each person’s consent to be added.
In future, if names are added, it will be assumed that individual consent has been given.
