Keeping in touch under new data privacy law

On the 25th May 2018, one of the biggest changes to UK data privacy law comes into effect.

What does this mean for you staying in touch with BUILDOFFSITE?
In coming weeks, we will be writing to all our contacts including BUILDOFFSITE members, collaborators and customers outlining how we will continue to communicate with you in line with the new privacy law requirements.

Our members and collaborators (including project group members, funders, supporters) will receive an email outlining how we will continue to deliver benefits as part of your own or your organisations’s continuing involvement with BUILDOFFSITE.

At the same time all our other customers will also receive an email to seek consent so that we may continue to contact you with relevant information that you have expressed an interest in previously.

These emails will also allow all of you to update and manage your preferences so that we only send you information based on your interests.

You will of course have a right to opt-out from these communications at any time. If you choose to opt-out you will miss out on communications surrounding news about BUILDOFFSITE research projects, events, publications as well as opportunities to supply case studies for projects.

What do you need to do?
You don’t need to do anything right now – rest assured your personal data is in safe hands .

Our commitment:
1.            We use your personal data to help provide great customer service, that includes tailoring the information we share with you to ensure it’s relevant, useful and timely.
2.            We respect your privacy and work hard to ensure we meet regulatory requirement.
3.            We don’t share your personal data unless we have a legal requirement to fulfil.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is a positive step towards you having additional control over how your data is used and how you’re contacted in the future. This notification is our reaffirmation that BUILDOFFSITE is committed as ever to ensuring your rights and interests are protected.

To reflect these changes we’ve updated our privacy policy which you can read here. Please be aware that further changes relating to GDPR may be made to our Privacy Policy in the future, so do keep an eye out.
