Any details you provide will be held in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018. You have the right to request, at any time, the information we hold about you. Where applicable, you can also ask us to transfer your data to another organisation. If you believe the information we hold about you is incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to ask us to correct it. You also have the right to ask us to stop any future processing of your personal data, or to remove it altogether. We may refuse to comply with a request for erasure where the personal data is processed for legal reasons, or other scenarios that may be in the public interest as specified by the Information Commissioners Office.

Processing Activities

We process your personal data for various purposes: to manage your membership, to carry out a contract we have with you, to comply with the law, or where you otherwise provide consent for us to do so, including promoting our events and services. Where we rely on your consent as our legal basis for processing your personal data, you can update your preferences or withdraw your consent at any time. We may also process your personal data in carrying out the legitimate interests of the HCT, such as internal research, analysis and marketing insight activities. We will not sell your information to third parties, nor do we allow our processors to use your data for any other purpose. We will hold personal information on our systems for only as long as is necessary for us to carry out the relevant processing activity.

Transfers Outside the European Economic Area

Our operations are based in the UK and we store our data within the European Economic Area. Some organisations that provide services to us may transfer personal data outside of the European Economic Area, but we’ll only allow them to do so if your data is adequately protected.

Making a Complaint

If you’re not happy with how we have handled your data, you are welcome to contact us to update your preferences or to make a complaint. If you believe that your data protection or privacy rights have been infringed, you can complain to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office which regulates and enforces data protection law in the UK.
