We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (e.g. women between 20-35 living in Manchester).

Data Storage

  1. All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers.

  2. This or the dynamics of the Internet may mean that information is sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. In addition, that information may be used, stored and processed outside the country where you entered that information.

Once we receive your information, we use strict procedures and security features to try and prevent unauthorised access. Agents or contractors who in the course of providing services to NASUWT have access to information which you give to us are required to keep that information secure and confidential and are not permitted to use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services which they are performing for NASUWT.
