Carrying out our Charitable Activities

 

We may use your personal information for the legitimate interest of carrying out our charitable activities, which may involve contacting your organisation to provide information and support and organising events for members. We may also use your personal information for other purposes that you expressly consent to from time to time.

 

Do we disclose your information to third parties?

 

We may not sell a mailing list to any third party organisation or sell information about your web browsing activity.

We may disclose your personal information to suppliers or service providers in order to provide you with any goods or services you have requested or if we have your permission we may share your information with a contact of NHS-SOS. We may also need to disclose your information if required to do so by law to government bodies or law enforcement agencies.

 

If you book to attend one of our events, we may share your name, organisation and role (but not contact details) with others who have registered or are attending the event. This is to enable more effective networking for you.

 

We may share your name, organisation and role with the venue holding the event – you may be notified of the precise venue when making your booking. This is primarily to enable the venue to know who is on their premises in case of evacuation due to fire or a security threat, and we may require the venue to delete these details once the event has finished.

 

We will always aim to ensure that your information is only used by third parties for lawful purposes and in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

NHS-SOS stores your information digitally on NHS-SOS’s servers at a data centre located in the United Kingdom and also in hard copy at NHS-SOS’s office.

From time to time we may send your data to one of NHS-SOS’s suppliers or services, whose staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your event booking or the provision of connected services such as the supply of equipment. By submitting your personal data, you agree that we may share your information with these third parties in accordance with this Privacy Notice, some of which may store data outside the EU, although we may only do so in accordance with applicable law.

 

We will also aim to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

 

Security to Protect your Information

 

We employ appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your information from being accessed by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. We also endeavour to take all reasonable steps to protect your information from external threats. However, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we may do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website; any transmission is at your own risk.

 

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

 

How long do we retain your data?

 

We may retain certain information in respect of financial transactions for as long as the law requires us to for tax or accounting purposes (which may be up to 6 years after a particular financial transaction).

 

NHS-SOS makes all reasonable endeavours to ensure that your personal information is accurate, kept secure and retained only for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which it is collected. We therefore store your information for as long as you are an employee of, or volunteer for, an organisation that is a member of NHS-SOS. When you leave the member organisation, your details may be deleted from our records once we are notified that you have left.

In accordance with your legal rights under applicable law, you can request information about the personal information that we hold about you, what we use that personal information for and who it may be disclosed to.

(a)  correct personal information that we hold about you which is inaccurate or incomplete;

(b)  erase your personal information without undue delay;

(c) no longer use your personal information for marketing purposes; or
