Privacy Notice - Female Fraud Forum
This privacy notice sets out how the Female Fraud Forum (“FFF”) uses and protects any information that we collect from you. The FFF is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.
The personal data that we collect and how we use it
The data that we routinely collect includes members’ names, the name of their firm or chambers and a professional address and email address. Occasionally a member will provide us with a personal email address and/or telephone number if that is their preferred contact method. We collect this data directly from our members when they join the FFF.
Sometimes members will pay for events using payment methods such as PayPal. This results in the provision by members of data such as addresses, phone numbers and email addresses which may be different to their membership data. The FFF does not make use of this information.
What is this data used for?
We use membership data for the administration of your membership; the communication of information, and the organisation of events.
Who is your data shared with?
We store membership data on our membership database. We operate a policy of limiting the number of committee members that have regular access to this database. However, during the organisation of events or updates to the Committee on membership, your membership data may be circulated amongst the currently elected FFF Committee members and Sub-Committee members. Details of both the Committee and Sub-Committee can be found on the FFF website www.femalefraudforum.com.
Sometimes we are required to provide attendee lists for events that are being organised with external venues and it is in these circumstances that membership data may be shared with other third party organisations.
Your personal data is not passed on by us to organisations other than as indicated above.
How is your data stored?
Your membership data is held on our membership database. This consists of an Excel database secured by password protection.
Withdrawing consent for the FFF to hold your data
You can withdraw consent at any time for us to hold your personal information. Should you wish to do so, please contact the FFF Membership Secretary, whose details can be found at www.femalefraudforum.com. Should you wish to withdraw consent and you notify us accordingly, your details will be removed from our membership database and you will no longer receive communications from us.
How long we keep your data for, and why?
We will hold your data for the duration of your membership of the FFF. After your membership lapses or you cancel it, we will hold your data for a further year. After this period if you have not renewed your membership we will delete your information.
Should you have any queries about how we hold and process your data please contact the FFF membership Secretary.
