How we collect your information:
We collect your personal information when you complete our online enquiry forms, complete our membership application form, update your members/observer preferences and register to attend our meetings and events.  The information we collect includes your title, name, postnominals, job title, organisation, address, email address, telephone number, mobile number, working group interests and meeting attendance and email correspondence.

How we use your information:
We use your personal information to send you emails relating to your involvement and/or interest with the Digital Policy Alliance.  We may also telephone you or use postal communications subject to consent.

Who we share your information with:
Digital Policy Alliance mailing lists are not made available to any other organisation. We do not sell your personal information and we do not share it with anyone outside of the Digital Policy Alliance without your prior consent unless authorised by law enforcement agencies.  We only use it to contact you about Digital Policy Alliance membership or participation, news, activities, meetings, events and other similar reasons, which you have chosen to receive.  However, names and organisations of attendees are occasionally shared with venues and joint event organisers to comply with their security requirements.

How long we store your information:
We only store your information for the duration of your membership of, or participation in, the Digital Policy Alliance. When your membership or participation in the Digital Policy Alliance ends we remove your information from our membership database.  Your title, name, postnominals, job title and organisation may also appear in meeting attendance records which are kept in the DPA archive for historical records.

We have conducted a detailed review of our internal procedures and remain committed to ensuring your data is secure.  Therefore, this policy is reviewed from time to time.

It is very important that the information we hold about you is accurate and up to date. Please let us know if at any time your personal information changes by emailing us at [email protected].

Access to information:
You have the right under the GDPR to access the information which we hold about you. If you wish to exercise this right, please send your request to [email protected]. We will have 30 days to provide you with this information and there will be no charge to you, unless we are satisfied that any such requests are vexatious.

To unsubscribe to our emails or for queries in relation to this privacy notice, please email [email protected].

If you are not happy with any aspect of how we collect and use your data, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk). We should be grateful if you would contact us first if you do have a complaint so that we can try to resolve it for you.
