Naturally, we take information security very seriously. We also want to be clear about what we do with your data.

From members, we will collect name, contact details and where we bill you directly, some financial information. Where payments are made by card or PayPal, these are not stored by NADPO.

We only use your information for the purposes of invitations to events, for membership and for NADPO news (the latter will happen no more than once every two months). We do not share your data with anyone, unless it is part of administering the running of an event. As an attendee you may be required to register on Eventbrite, in which case your data is held by that organisation.

We are not registered with the ICO as a data controller as we are a not for profit organisation that is exempt from notification. Additionally:

  • NADPO only processes information necessary to establish or maintain membership or support; and
  • NADPO only processes information necessary to provide or administer activities for people who are members of the organisation or have regular contact with it; and
  • NADPO only shares the information with people and organisations necessary to carry out the organisation’s activities (which means that sometimes we give venues a list of attendees at events); and
  • NADPO only keeps the information while the individual is a member or supporter or as long as necessary for member/supporter administration.Our website contains a list of members, that is only accessible to the Executive Officers and Administration Manager for the purposes of carrying out these activities. Our webservers are in Germany.
