What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We only hold data relating to your organisation and your position within it, which we use to assess your membership criteria. This will usually comprise name, title, job role and an e-mail address and phone number, unless you have specifically requested us not to store it. If you have requested that, we will probably have difficulty assessing your eligibility for any events though.
At the time of writing, the website does not hold user accounts or allow registration of new accounts. There is one global user account used by the SPOCS of each organisation. In the future, this may change.

These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
