This policy describes our approach to meet the GDPR requirements: it includes the following elements:

Purpose of the database: To circulate information to contacts on the SWME Conferences, related work such as obervations and the annual reports and related activities which share the objectives of SWME.

1. Personal data held: Name and email address. No other data is held on databases by SWME organisers.

2. This data would consititute a low risk to our contacts.

3. External systems: We use Mailchimp mailing system to send bulk emails to the contacts on our listing:

4. We have no desire to send people unwanted emails. All emails carry an ‘unsubscribe’ option or the data controller bob.earll@coastms.co.uk will remove contacts on request.

5. Sign up to the the SWME activities will be made explicit from 2017 on SWME booking forms.
