Personal Data:
What data do we collect?
The ACI UK Administrator is the ‘Controller’ of all personal data you provide to us. We only collect basic personal data about you which does not include any special types of information or location based information. This does however include name, work address, email and telephone numbers etc.

Why do we need it?
We need to know your basic personal data in order to communicate with you about ACI UK membership, services, news and event inviations. We will not collect any personal data from you that we do not need in order to provide and oversee this service to you.

What we do with it?
All of the personal data we collect is processed by the ACI UK Administrator from a single UK location.  For the purposes of emailing we use Mailchimp to host and manage contact data, subject to their Terms of Use and associated Data Protection and Privacy Policy.  Complete membership data is also maintained in non-electronic format.  We do not provide personal data to third parties other than in the situation that a third party is co-hosting an ACI UK event and ACI UK data collected at registration for the event is required by the third party to run the event (e.g. to provide guests with access to a secure building).  Similarly, no other third parties have access to your personal data unless the law allows them to do so.

How long  do we keep it?
We are required under UK tax law to keep basic personal data (name, address, contact details) for a minimum of 6 years after which time it will be destroyed. The information we use for marketing purposes will be kept with us until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive information from us.

What would we like to do with it?
We would like to use your name and email address to inform you of future ACI UK news, activities, updates and services and to invite you to future ACI UK, ACI Financial Markets Association and associated third party events. This information is not shared with third parties and you can unsubscribe at any time using the link at the bottom of emails and by email.

What are your rights?
We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. If at any point you believe the information we process about you is incorrect you may request to see this information and have it corrected or deleted. If you wish to raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal data, you can contact our Data Protection Officer who will investigate the matter.
