1. Privacy commitment

This is the privacy policy for the WACL (“we” or “WACL”) which together with our website terms of use sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the Act), WACL is a data controller and our address is 35 Ballards Lane, London N3 1XW. We are committed to safeguarding your privacy online and have developed this privacy policy to deal with issues which may concern you. Please read this policy to understand how your personal information will be treated. This policy may change from time to time so please check it periodically.

2. Personal Information

The details which you provide about yourself and any information which identifies you such as your name, address, email address (“personal information”) will be collected by us when you become a member or attend an event (if relevant), or when you submit such information directly by filling in an online form.

3. Use of Personal Information

This information will be held on our system and used for setting up and managing your website account, for your WACL membership (if relevant), to provide you with information, products or services that you request from us and to make available to you information relating to WACL and its services. Some of this personal information, such as your name and email address, may be available to others using this site.

4. Protection of Information

We will not pass on your personal information to third parties unless we are required by law or by a regulatory or government authority to do so. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that you remain anonymous even though we include your IP address in our aggregate information. However, we can and will attempt to use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our website terms of use, or to protect our services and other users.

5. Cookies

We take every precaution to protect your personal information. To this end, all personal information stored by us is kept on an encrypted database server in a secure environment. Only WACL executives and approved contractors/developers who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personal information. Regular security reviews are held by us to ensure that the site remains safe and secure for your protection.

We may need to transfer, store or process your personal information at a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). By submitting your personal information to us, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Please do not share your password with anyone. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal information, we will use procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
