Privacy Policy

Equity is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to our website. This privacy statement outlines the personal identifiable data (personal data) which Equity may collect from those who visit the website and how we may use this data.

Equity is a data controller and processes information which you give us to help in the effective operation of the union and to provide members with the right to vote, to help with research and to receive union information, goods, benefits and services. We will not collect any personal data such as your name, address, telephone number or email address, unless you provide it voluntarily. You may choose to provide us with personal data, for example in order to join the Union, for the purposes of entering or updating details on a directory, or becoming involved within the discussion forum. By submitting your personal data you consent to such use. Any personal data collected from you as a visitor/user of our website is kept private by Equity and is not shared, sold or otherwise transferred to any third parties with the exception of organisations with which we work in partnership such as the British Equity Collecting Society.

You are entitled to ask for a copy of the personal data we may process about you (there is a small charge). Please send your access request by email or postal mail to the Head Office address as listed in the contacts pages of this website. For your own security we may ask you to provide proof of your identity before granting the access. Your personal data is not kept any longer than is necessary to serve the purpose it was collected for. You may have your personal data deleted or corrected by sending us an email or by sending a letter to the Head Office address given in the contacts pages of this website.
