You can change your email preferences at any time by contacting us at or using the unsubscribe button at the bottom of our emails.

International Transfers

In certain circumstances, we may need to transfer your Personal Data to third parties located outside the EEA. For example, where an event takes place at a venue outside the EEA, we may need to provide details such as your name and dietary requirements to the venue/organisers.
Your Personal Data may also be processed by staff outside the EEA who work for us. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, provision of support services.

Where Personal Data is transferred outside the EEA, we will ensure that one of the following applies:

• The transfer is to a country determined by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for Personal Data (including Privacy Shield for transfers to the US);

• Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contractual clauses approved by the European Commission which give Personal Data the same protection it has in Europe; or

• One of the specific derogations provided in Article 49 GDPR applies.

Retention of your information

We will hold Personal Data collected on non-members as long as they remain active and responsive (unless you ask for your information be deleted). If we have not heard from the individual for longer than 2 years, or no longer have a valid email address, details will be removed from the system.

Your rights

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your Personal Data. You have the right to:-

Request access to your Personal Data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the Personal Data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

Request correction of the Personal Data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Request erasure of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove Personal Data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your Personal Data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your Personal Data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Object to processing of your Personal Data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your Personal Data in the following scenarios:-

• If you want us to establish the data’s accuracy.
• Where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it.
• Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
• You have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request the transfer of your Personal Data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your Personal Data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your Personal Data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

Should you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact
Third parties

We will not share Personal Data collected through our Website with unrelated third parties, except as provided in this Privacy Policy.

We may share Personal Data with companies that we contract with to perform services for us, such as assisting us with our mailing campaigns or other data processing, where they need your Personal Data to perform the service for us. These companies are not authorised to keep or use your Personal Data for any other purpose.

Third Parties working on our behalf

We may pass your information to our third-party service providers and systems for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to process event registrations). When we use third party service providers, we disclose only the Personal Data that is necessary to deliver the service. We have contracts in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes.

Third Parties we work in associate with

When this is required, we will take steps to ensure your privacy rights continue to be protected.
