The New Website – GDPR
ESNA needs to comply with the requirements of GDPR. We are about to launch a new website and we need permission to continue to store personal details. Details we currently have are name, job title/speciality and role description/contact details/main base and date joined. We will hold membership details in a secure GDPR compliant database on our new website. We will email members individually asking them to check their information and agree to ESNA holding it.
**We will keep this information safe and only use it for the purpose for which it is intended**
One service that we would like to add is the ability for members to search for other members on the database and contact them if required. This will be made clear to everyone in the email we send out.
