Personal Information is any information from which you can be identified. “Sensitive Personal Information” is Personal Information relating to your religious or ethnic origin, religious or political opinions, sexual orientation, physical or mental health, trade union membership or criminal convictions.
You are not required to provide us with any Personal Information when visiting the Federation Website. However, we may collect information from you during your use of the Federation Service whenever you submit any such Personal Information to us using on-line forms, when you e-mail us or when you post a message on any bulletin board.
Examples of Personal Information that we may collect when you use the Federation Service in these ways include [name, job title, organisation, address, telephone number, email address, DOB, age, third party contact details, skills]. We do not generally seek to collect Sensitive Personal Information about you. However, we cannot guarantee that we will not come into possession of such information. For example, you may include some Sensitive Personal Information in an e-mail, bulletin board message or on-line form which you send/submit to the Federation.
To the extent that we may receive Sensitive Personal Information, we will not use it except to the extent that you ask us to or to the extent that we are required to in order to fulfill your request.
The Federation will use the Personal Information about you, that we collect via the Federation Website, only for the following purposes:
If required to do so by any applicable law, search warrant, subpoena or court order, or by any regulation, treaty or other legally binding obligation with which the Federation or any company or trust within the Federatio is required to comply, The Federation or any such company or trust will disclose some or all of your Personal Information as and to the extent that it is required to do so.
The Federation shall not sell, rent, distribute or otherwise make Personal Information available to any third party without your prior permission.
The Federation uses a number of mechanisms to protect the security and integrity of your Personal Information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once any Personal Information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps and all other precautions required by law to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
You may request access to any Personal Information that we hold about you. If you would like a copy of your Personal Information, please contact us via the Contact page stating your full name and providing us with sufficient information to verify your identity. Please also help us to respond quickly by indicating why you think we hold Personal Information about you and what information you think we may hold. Please note an access fee may be charged to cover our reasonable costs of providing the information to you.
Sometimes there may be a reason why access will not be possible. If that is the case, you will be told why.
If you would like us to correct or update any of the information that we hold about you, please contact us via the contact page.
