GDPR – Important Information about your Personal Data
At PHECC we are committed to protecting the personal data we hold about you and with the introduction of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we are taking the opportunity to update our Data Protection Notice and provide you with further information about your personal data rights and how we use your information.
What is the GDPR?
The GDPR is an update to existing data protection law effective across the EU from 25 May 2018. GDPR will give you more control over your personal data and places greater accountability on PHECC and all organisations when collecting, using and keeping safe your personal data.
PHECC is the controller of your personal data which means that we are responsible for how your personal data is collected, used and protected. We respect your personal data and take great care to ensure security and confidentiality are maintained always. We do not share your data with any other bodies.
What is Personal Data?
Personal data is the information which identifies you or which can be used with other information to identify you. PHECC collects personal data in a variety of circumstances in particular - registration, qualifications and examination activities.
How we Use Your Information
We use your personal data to facilitate your engagement with PHECC as a registered prehospital emergency care practitioner and to help us run the administration of PHECC. Emails which are an essential part of our communications with you as a registrant and maintaining your licence may not be obstructed.
If you are a member of our mailing list, we may send you information about PHECC and pre-hospital emergency care practitioner initiatives including our newsletter, events and other communications we feel may be of interest to you as a registrant. We would like to continue sending you this information and will contact you shortly seeking permission to do so and you will be given an opt out facility if you wish to stop receiving these general communications.
