Data Protection and Confidentiality Policy Statement

When you request information from UNA-UK, sign up to any of our services or buy things from us, UNA-UK obtains information about you. This statement explains how we look after that information and what we do with it.

We have a legal duty under the Data Protection Act to prevent your information falling into the wrong hands. We must also ensure that the data we hold is accurate, adequate, relevant and not excessive.

Normally the only information we hold comes directly from you. Whenever we collect information from you, we will make it clear which information is required in order to provide you with the information, service or goods you need. You do not have to provide us with any additional information unless you choose to. We store your information securely on our computer system, we restrict access to those who have a need to know, and we train our staff in handling the information securely.

We will pass your contact details to your local UNA, so that they can let you know what activities are happening in your area. If you have signed up to an event or other service we will also pass your details to the company or individual providing that service.

We would also like to contact you in future to tell you about other activities we are undertaking, and ways in which you might like to support UNA-UK. You have the right to ask us not to contact you in this way. We will always aim to provide a clear method for you to opt out. You can also contact us directly at any time to tell us not to send you any such material in the future.

You have the right to a copy of all the information we hold about you (apart from exceptional information which we may be legally obliged to withhold because it concerns other people as well as you). To obtain a copy of personal details held on you, write to the Data Protection Officer, UNA-UK, 3 Whitehall Court, London, SW1A 2EL. Please send a cheque made payable to 'UNA-UK' for £10 with your request. We aim to reply as promptly as we can and, in any case, within the legal maximum of 40 days.
