2. How will your data be stored secured?

We will always hold your information securely. The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers, such as our customer relationship management (CRM) supplier – see their privacy policy here (TBEC newsletter recipient list) and here (TBEC member listserve). By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information using the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data sent to us this way, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to our site.

4. Will TBEC share your personal information with anyone else?

We will only use your information within TBEC for the purposes for which it was obtained. TBEC will not, under any circumstances, share or sell your personal data with any third party for their own marketing purposes, and you will not receive marketing from any other companies, charities or other organisations as a result of giving your details to us.

TBEC suppliers

We may need to share your information with service providers who help us to deliver our projects. These “data processors” will only act under our instruction and are subject to precontract scrutiny and contractual obligations containing strict data protection clauses. We do not allow these organisations to use your data for their own purposes or disclose it to other third parties without our consent and we will take all reasonable care to ensure that they keep your data secure.

Where legally required

We will also comply with legal requests where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies for tax purposes or law enforcement agencies for the prevention and detection of crime) subject to such bodies providing us with a relevant request in writing).

5. How long will we keep your personal information?

We will retain your information for as long as you want to stay in touch with us. If you request to receive no further contact, we will retain a minimal set of basic information for the sole purpose of avoiding sending you unwanted materials in the future.

6. Your right to refuse data collecting

Notwithstanding the commitments we make elsewhere in this privacy policy, in addition you have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will always inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes.
