Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data.  Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession.  The processing of personal data is governed by [the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the “GDPR”)].

Who are we?

Under Article 9 Para 2(d) of the GDPR we are permitted to process sensitive data when it is;

“carried out in the course of its legitimate activities with appropriate safeguards by a foundation, association or any other not-for-profit body with a political, philosophical, religious or trade union aim and on condition that the processing relates solely to the members or to former members of the body or to persons who have regular contact with it in connection with its purposes”
