INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT FROM YOU
We may collect and process the following data about you:
Names and email addresses for distribution of our newsletter. We use a third party provider, Mailchimp, to deliver our e-newsletter.

Information that you provide by filling in forms on our site nmite.org.uk. This includes information which you provide to us when making an enquiry about NMITE. We may also ask you for information when you report a problem with our Site.
Details from correspondence if you contact us, as we may keep a record of that correspondence.
Information obtained from telephone calls to us, which may be recorded for training purposes.
We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers.

WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
USES MADE OF THE INFORMATION
We may use information held about you in the following ways:
To ensure that content from our Site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.
To complete administration necessary to produce and distribute the NMITE newsletter. We do not share your information with third parties except (such as in the case of Mailchimp) when it’s necessary to complete the functions of the newsletter.
To notify you about changes to our services.
When you email us, we will use your email address only for the purpose of responding to you and for no other purpose.
We will never provide access to our databases to any third party, except to the extent necessary to conduct the administration of the newsletter (such as providing user data to Mailchimp).
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
Authorised personnel within NMiTE will be able to access the information you provide to us. We may also disclose your information to other third parties who act for us for the purposes set out below or for purposes approved by you, but always with appropriate non-disclosure and data protection agreements in place.
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf.
Examples include processing credit card payments, publication printing and mailing, and hosting the website.
The contracted agencies have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes, and must delete it as soon as the function is complete.
Personal information provided by you may occasionally be shared with other organisations for the prevention of fraud. For example, should you fall behind with payments due, we may disclose sufficient personal data to a third party to enable it to pursue and recover the debt from you. Third parties may include solicitors, agents appointed by us (for example, debt recovery and tracing agents) and the Courts.
Upon the signing of a non-disclosure agreement, approved volunteers who are working as staff (for example facilitating the organisation of an event) may be given access to your data. This access will be for a specific purpose, and for a time-limited period only, and will be monitored at all times by authorised University staff). Sensitive personal data will not, under any circumstances, be shared with volunteers.
Unless required or permitted to do so by law, we will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent.
