Data Protection policy

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becomes law across Europe in May 2018

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becomes law across Europe in May 2018, replacing a patchwork of data protection laws across the various European Union member states, and essentially making privacy the new normal.

We understand that legal requirements may be different in other countries but, as the IET is a UK-based organisation and subject to UK law, all those who work on behalf of the IET are required to comply with the relevant standards.

This policy provides information about data protection and how it applies to the IET and its volunteers, together with providing the steps to be taken by IET volunteers who have access to the personal data of individuals with whom the IET has or may have a relationship. This could include our members, staff, customers, suppliers, volunteers and donors - any individual we deal with.

It is important that you familiarise yourself with the policy to help you comply with good practice and protect both yourself and the IET.  If you have any queries on data protection please contact the Volunteer Support Unit.
