We collect certain information or data about you when you register with GMDT or use our websites.

We collect:

  • Your email address when you sign up to our newsletter via the website, and how you use our emails – for example whether you open them and which links you click on.

Where your data is stored

We store your data on secure servers in the European Economic Area (EEA).

We also use Mailchimp who are based outside the EEA but we only share your name and email address with them.

By submitting your personal data, you agree to this.

Keeping your data secure

Sending information over the internet is generally not completely secure, and we can’t guarantee the security of your data while it’s in transit.

Any data you send is at your own risk.

We have procedures and security features in place to keep your data secure once we receive it. We may pass on your personal information if we have a legal obligation to do so.

We won’t share your information with any other organisations for marketing, market research or commercial purposes, and we don’t pass on your details to other websites without your specific approval.

Your rights

You can find out what information we hold about you and ask us not to use any of the information we collect.

If any information we hold is incorrect we will correct it as soon as we are notified.

If at any time you ask to be removed from our database then all your details will be removed within a month of your request.

We use a third party provider, Mailchimp, to deliver our quarterly e-newsletters and emails to all members and volunteers. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us know how many people are engaging with us. For more information, please see Mailchimp’s privacy notice.
