Introduction

The Women in Business Association (WiBA) is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. This privacy notice sets out the basis on which any personal information we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal information and how we will treat it. By proceeding to use our services and attend our events you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this notice. For the purpose of relevant data protection law, the data controller is Women in Business Association.

The Chair of WiBA’s Committee will deal with all your requests and enquiries concerning WiBA’s uses of your personal data (see section on Your Rights below) and endeavour to ensure that all personal data is processed in compliance with this policy and relevant data protection law.

The information you give us may include your name, address, employer/business name, job title, e-mail address, phone number and whether you are a member of WiBA or not.

Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online, for example personal information can only be accessed by members of the WiBA Committee and the WiBA Administrator.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

When members choose not to renew their membership of WiBA, we will keep their member records for 2 years from the date of non-renewal.

You can exercise your “right to be forgotten” at any time and can request we erase your personal data. Once we receive your request, we will erase the personal data without delay, unless an exception applies that permits or requires us to continue processing your data for legal reasons..

From time to time we use photographs taken at our events on our website and social media channels to illustrate what we do. If you attend an event and do not want to be included in a small group or individual photograph, please advise the photographer at that time.

Names are not identified in photo captions unless with the express consent of the individual concerned at that time.
