How we get the personal data and why we have it
Most of the personal data we process is provided to us directly by you for one of the following reasons:
- Membership of our Association to access resources and events.
We use the information that you have given us in order to contact you about resources and events and to share/gain professional insight.
We need this information to maintain administrative and accounting records in good order. Your information will not otherwise be shared unless we have your written permission or request to do so (for networking purposes, for example).
Under the DPL, the lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are:
- Your consent. You are able to remove your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting the Secretary of the Association;
- (in the case of membership applications and payments) it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract;
- ELA legitimate interests, and those of our members, in providing services for professional and personal development and information in accordance with ELA Constitutional objectives (and we have assessed that those legitimate interests are not overridden by the interests, rights and freedoms of those whose data is processed).
