How we use your Data
Information collected from the registration process about your place of work and areas of professional interest will be retained securely and only used to help the NAPCE committee to understand and analyse the membership and conference attendee profiles.
Information received via web cookies, is used to enhance your experience of the site, fault resolution and for logged-in members to ensure access to entitled resources (see cookies note).
Your consent to use your data for such contact is valid for 13 months. After this time, if your membership expires, we will erase your data from the NAPCE records and you will need to register again via the website if you wish to rejoin NAPCE or purchase a conference place.
All personal data is held within an IT secure environment.
Controlling your data
Data will be controlled by the NAPCE Executive Committee Membership Officer and processed by the NAPCE Executive Committee Officer with responsibility for Website Data Protection Management.
We do not share, sell or rent your personal data to third parties for marketing purposes.
Members have the right to view all personal data held and can at any time cancel consent to use that personal data.
We would like to be able to contact you directly with information regarding NAPCE activity which we think will be of interest to you. If you are registered as a member, we will also email you to remind you of the date your membership is due.
Declining to give consent will not affect your membership but you will no longer receive direct communication from NAPCE with the exception of automated email membership renewal reminders (one per membership period).
