About our processes:

1) When working with our membership

When you sign up and join as a member and use our services, we store your information and send correspondence on a contract basis. This includes a newsletter about industry activities and information about parties we think will be of interest. You can opt out of the newsletter at any time.

We will retain your data until your membership is cancelled.

2) When working with third parties

When engaging with third parties for business purposes, we process contact details of people at those organisations as a legitimate interest. We will retain that information until deemed out of date or we receive a request to delete it.

3) When recruiting and employing people

When people apply for a job with us, we process information that is necessary for the recruitment process. For example, legal reasons (such as employment and money-laundering laws), for contract, and legitimate interest (such as understanding your skillsets and employment history). If applicants are not successful, we delete their data after six months, unless there is business or legal justification for longer retention.

For employees, we process information necessary for their employment, for legal, contractual and legitimate interest (e.g. performance monitoring) reasons. We retain employment records for 7 years after termination of the contract and retain some data after that time for references or to support legal activities.

If you are unable to provide required data for our recruitment or employment purposes, we may be unable to employ you.
