Using Your Personal Information
Information about individuals is collected and securely stored purely for its own business purposes and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018 which updates data protection laws in the UK. It is a national law which complements the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.
We will not pass this information to any third party unless required to do so for law enforcement purposes, other than to those providing a service on our behalf in connection with our business. We may contact you occasionally about events, new products or promotions. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not wish to receive such information.
Any information you submit will be retained by UKIHMA for as long as you use the services and systems provided on the website. Information that you may submit through any communications system that we may provide may be retained for a longer period of up to 6 months.
Personal information submitted via this website will be used for the purposes stated in this policy or on relevant parts of the website. Any or all of your personal information may be required by us from time to time in order to provide you with the best possible service and experience when using our website. Specifically, information held about you may be used by us for the following reasons:
- To ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer;

Where you submit personal information for publication, we will only publish and use that information in accordance with the terms of the permission you grant us.
We will not without your express consent provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.
Third Party Websites and Services
If the website contains links to other websites we are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of third party websites.
We may also disclose your personal information:

- To any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.
International Data Transfers
Information which you provide may be transferred to countries, which do not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the European Economic Area.
In addition, personal information that you submit for publication on the website will be published on the internet and may be available, via the internet, around the world. We cannot prevent the use or misuse of such information by others.

You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will not ask you for your password (except when you log in to the website).
You may instruct us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes by email at any time. In practice, you will usually either expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal data for marketing purposes, or we will provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of the use of your personal data for marketing purposes.
