What we need

Personal Data : Unless otherwise agreed with you, we will only collect basic personal data about you, which does not usually include any special categories of personal information about you (often known as ‘sensitive personal data’). This information does, however, include the likes of your name, email address and phone number(s).

Business Data : If you are a business member of IPD/BPD, or applying to become one, then, as well as your Personal Data, we will also collect information about your business. This includes information such as its name, what it is, what it does, how big it is, where to find it, and how to contact it. Any Business Data collected is considered to be ‘public domain’ since it constitutes the publicly available listing on our website.

Event Data : If you submit an event for listing on our website, then, as well your Personal Data, we will collect data pertinent to the submitted event. This includes information such as what, where, when and how much it is, who the organiser is, and how to contact them.

How long we keep it

We will generally keep your personal data for an indefinite period of time, in order to enable us to provide you with the services requested (listing management and information communications via email). Your data will be kept with us until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive this information. You have the right to withdraw consent at any time.

What are your rights?

If at any point you wish to either confirm whether your personal data is being processed and/or access the data we hold on you, you can request to see this information and we will respond (subject to verification of identity).

You may also request that we transmit this data directly to another organisation where it is practical for us to do so.

You are entitled to have data deleted if it is no longer needed or there is no longer a legitimate reason for the processing, or if the data in question has otherwise unlawfully been processed. You may also request deletion of your personal data if it was only being processed as a result of you consenting to this and you now withdraw your consent.

You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data (note that this only provides you with the right to raise your objections, not a blanket right to have any and all processing cease).

You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data under certain circumstances, including if you have consented to its accuracy and while this is being verified by us, or if you have objected to its processing and while we are considering whether we have legitimate grounds to continue to do so.
