We are committed to keeping your data secure and to never using it in ways you would not expect. The IWW is the data controller for the information you provide on this form. We use this data to assess if you are eligible for membership and to administer your membership.
The lawful basis for this processing is the IWW pursuing our legitimate interests as a trade union. As a trade union, we have a statutory requirement to keep an accurate register of members’ names and addresses. If you wish to be a IWW member, you must provide this information to us.
The IWW will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information to any third party unless it is justified by:
- the lawful basis of pursuing our legitimate interests as a trade union;
- or it is necessary to fulfil our contract with you as a member;
- or we have your explicit consent to do so;
- or it is necessary to protect someone’s life;
- or we are required to do so by law.
We do not routinely transfer your data outside of the UK. However, if it is necessary, we will ensure appropriate data protection measures (as applicable under UK law) are in place.
We will keep your personal data confidential and will take appropriate measures to protect it against loss, theft or misuse and to safeguard your privacy. IWW uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information
We retain your membership data only for the period necessary to enable us to fulfil the purpose(s) for which we collected it, to comply with our legal obligations and/or whilst we maintain a legitimate interest in retaining it. By default, contents that you have emailed, posted or uploaded yourself via IWW communications services (email accounts, email lists, internal chat, forum, file repository, etc.) will remain indefinitely stored and visible on those platforms, even if you are no longer a member, unless you delete them yourself or explicitly request their deletion. Where you have given consent for the IWW to process your data, you may withdraw it at any time by contacting us.
You have rights as a data subject. These rights include: subject access; erasure; rectification; the right to restrict or object to processing; the right to data portability; and the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
The IWW is fully committed to upholding these rights. If you believe we have not done so, please get in touch so that we can put things right.
