WHY DO WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We use your personal data:
HOW IS PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA LAWFUL?
We are allowed to process your personal data based on:
We are permitted to process your personal data if it is based on our ‘legitimate interests’ i.e. we have good, sensible, practical reasons for processing your personal data which is in the interests of BABICM. To do so, we have considered the impact on your interests and rights, and have placed appropriate safeguards to ensure that the intrusion on your privacy is reduced as much as possible. The table below explains the personal data processed on this basis.
|Personal data||Legitimate Interests|
|Personal data related to members, prospective members, subscribers, and individuals attending events that are used for any marketing or promotion purposes;||It is on our legitimate interest to carry out marketing and promotion campaigns of BABICM services.|
|Personal data related to members, to be shared with other members||Access to contact information of other BABICM members and event attendees when this is a key benefit of BABICM membership. As a benefit to members, personal data related to members and event attendees may be shared with other members and event attendees.|
|Special category of personal data voluntarily made manifestly public by you (see “Data manifestly made public” in the “special categories of data” paragraph below).||
You can object to processing that we carry out on the grounds of legitimate interests. See the section headed “Your Rights” to find out how.
BABICM may process your data to the extent it is necessary for our performance of the contract you have agreed to enter with us.
We are subject to legal obligations to process your personal data for the purposes of complying with applicable regulatory, accounting and financial rules, health and safety and to make mandatory disclosures to government bodies and law enforcements.
Sometimes we want to use your personal data in a way that is entirely optional for you. On these occasions, we will ask for your consent to use your information. You can withdraw this consent at any time.
Special categories of data
We are allowed to process your special categories of personal data on the following legal basis:
Data manifestly made public
Although this sounds like your data is on “the public domain and shared with the public as a whole, it does not mean such thing. When you voluntarily provide BABICM with data related to you for us to deal with any special requirements you may have, for example when attending our annual conference, you are providing this information to our organisation as a whole, and your sensitive data will be used by those staff members, volunteers, or members who needs to deal with your request or preference Since we are an organisation (as opposed to a private, household environment), when you give us your information it is considered that you are making this data sufficiently public in a way that you allow us to use if for the purposes you request or expect us to do. Of course, we will keep this data secure, and it will only be processed by those who need to know.
We need to process your personal data if necessary to defend or establish a legal claim.
We may use your sensitive data if you give us your consent. If so, you we will gather this consent separately and you will always have the right to withdraw the consent at any time.
WHO WILL HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We also share your personal data with BABICM members if you raise a complaint against a BABICAM advanced member, to seek their views and handle the complaint.
We will also share your personal data with legal advisers, the police, other law enforcements or regulators where we are required or allowed by law to do so.
We do not sell your information to third parties
We do not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.
Transfers of your personal data outside the United Kingdom
Because of the services providers we use, your personal data is processed from locations that are out of the UK INCLUDING THE United States or other territories that are not considered as offering an adequate level of protection to the personal data. E take steps for these processing activities to be carried out in compliance with the Data Protection Laws. For example, we consider what safeguards need to be agreed with each provider, and we negotiate the implementation of suitable mechanisms like the implementation of International Data Transfers Agreements that are approved by the ICO.
How we keep your personal data secure
We strive to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss or alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access and any other unlawful forms of processing. We aim to ensure that the level of security and the measures adopted to protect your personal data are appropriate for the risks presented by the nature and use of your personal data. We follow recognised industry practices for protecting our IT environment and physical facilities.
Employees, volunteers and contractors of BABICM who have access to personal data are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Notice by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for BABICM.
Although we take appropriate security measures, we cannot fully assure you that personal data will never be subject to a data breach. In the unfortunate case that this happens, we will activate our incident response action plan set out in BABICM policies, and, if appropriate, will inform you accordingly.
Our Web Site may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different from ours. Website users should consult the other sites’ privacy policies as BABICM has no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
WHEN WILL WE DELETE YOUR DATA?
BABICM will not keep your data for longer than we need to to meet all the purposes we included in the section “Why do we process your personal data?”.
For example, if you are a member, we will keep your data for the duration of your membership and then, we will keep that data if we need it to comply with a legal obligation (including BABICM’s document retention policy). For most of the purposes and legal obligations we have stated a retention period of 6 years, but we also apply shorter periods. For example, we keep data in relation to new enquiries for a 6 months period, after which we delete it.
