We handle information about people as part of our activities. We are devoted to preserving your personal information and take seriously the right to privacy of every person with whom we come into contact. We promise to treat your information in accordance with this policy and in compliance with all applicable data protection regulations. Our Data Protection Officer may be reached at [email protected] if you have any questions about the policy.
This Policy outlines the principles by which we (NPT and its affiliates) will use or handle any personal information you provide us, or that we acquire from you or about you.
1. Privacy Notices
We handle information pertaining to our membership in order to communicate with them about membership news and information, subscription fees, examination information, updates on professional issues, the College, and College events or courses, as well as to provide them with a variety of products and services. We comply with this since it is required of us under the contract we have with our members. The data we handle might, for instance, consist of various member details (such as contact and career details, bank details and details of their interaction with the College). Please be aware that we may share responsibility for some of this information when appropriate. We may also use member-specific information to analyse the composition of the College’s membership, and we do so because it is in our legitimate interests to properly administer membership and ensure that it is appropriate for all members.
In order to raise money, we also handle information pertaining to our membership. Contact information, any gifts you may have given to the NPT, and other details are among the data we may utilise to guide our fundraising efforts. We feel that our membership will be interested in supporting these aims since it is in our legitimate interest to achieve our charity goal.
We deal with information relating to previous members of the College and information relating to people who have attended the College’s examinations, events or courses for the purposes of verifying qualifications awarded by the College. We do this because it is in the interests of the public as one of our public tasks to maintain standards and public safety. The information we have includes (for example) names, examination outcomes and course attendances.
In order to promote membership, events, and courses to these individuals, we also deal with information pertaining to former College members and information pertaining to those who have taken part in tests, events, or courses offered by the College. We take this action because we believe it is in our legitimate interests to grow the College’s membership and event attendance. The data we have on these folks comprises numerous details (such as contact and career details, and details of their interaction with the College). Previous members and attendees of the College’s exams, activities, or courses can always choose not to receive communications from us or request that we erase the information we have on them.
We will supply organisations with proof of a person’s membership status for the purposes of employment, academic achievement, rewards, and medical or dental regulation.
For the purposes of personnel administration and recruiting, we deal with information pertaining to our staff and those employed by the NPT (including temporary workers hired through employment agencies and freelance staff). The majority of the time, we do this because we have an agreement in place with each of these people, and we need to utilise the information to carry it out. Nevertheless, we are compelled by law to process some data, therefore we must do so (for example, we deal with staff medical information, staff training records, health surveillance records, or other such reasons that employment law, equality law or Health & Safety legislation obliges us to.) Contact information, information about present and former job or experience, information regarding pay, money, pensions, positions, sick leave, performance, diversity, ethnicity, and information about disabilities are a few examples of the types of information we deal with.
All of the information you supply throughout the hiring process will only be used to move your application along or, if required, to satisfy legal or regulatory obligations. We don’t gather any more data than is required to accomplish our stated goals, and we don’t keep it around longer than is absolutely necessary. We utilise the information you provide to determine if you are a good fit for the position.
We take photos of staff members, organisations, and outside visitors to use as door passes within the facility and for building security. For the sake of health and safety, the images will also be stored on the system. We gather the information because it is in our legitimate interest to be able to confirm the identification of those who enter our building and make sure that nobody unauthorised accesses protected areas. The images will only be kept for as long as is required for security reasons and in accordance with our retention schedules.
1.2.4 Prior to arriving at the NPT construction site, third-party guests have the option to upload their photo to our visitor management system, where face recognition software will quickly identify them. We only do this if you consent, and it is voluntary.
Obtain access to your personal data by submitting a “data subject access request,” as it is usually known. This gives you the opportunity to request a copy of the personal data we currently have on file about you and confirm its accuracy.
Make a rectification request for any personal data we may have on you. This gives you the opportunity to change any incomplete or erroneous data we may have about you, albeit we may need to confirm the veracity of any updated information you offer.
Request the removal of your personal data. This gives you the option to request that we delete or otherwise dispose of personal data where there is no compelling reason for us to do so. In cases where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), in which we may have processed your information unlawfully, or in which we are required to delete your personal information by local law, you also have the right to request that we delete or remove your personal information. However, please be aware that there are some circumstances in which we may not always be able to honour your request for erasure. If this is the case, we will let you know at the time of your request.
If we are using a legitimate interest (our own or that of a third party) to process your personal information and there is something about your situation that makes you want to object to processing on this ground because you feel it affects your fundamental rights and freedoms, you can object to that processing. In cases where we are using your personal information for direct marketing, you also have the right to object. In rare circumstances, we may be able to show that our legitimate processing needs outweigh your rights and freedoms.
Request a limitation on how your personal information is processed. This gives you the option to request that we halt processing your personal data in the following circumstances: (a) if you want us to confirm the data’s accuracy; (b) if our use of the data is illegal but you do not want us to delete it; (c) if you need us to keep the data even if we no longer need it because you need it to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims; or (d) if you object to our use of the data but we need to determine whether we
