DATA PROTECTION POLICY

 

 

 

Our database (membership, registrations, and newsletter) is used solely by PWG Basel, which is a local Basel non-profit organisation. We are not part of a wider reaching organisation and therefore do not share our database nor any confidential information with outside parties.

 

 

How is your personal data collected?

 

Membership Application
We collect your personal data when you apply for membership or update an existing membership profile. We distinguish between mandatory data (as indicated on the application): your first and last name, username, and email address.

 

There is also non-mandatory data which you may or may not wish to give us as shown on our membership application: for example phone numbers, your profession, industry, etc. 

The disclosure of such data is absolutely voluntary.

 

Event & Workshop Registration

Registration for one of our events or workshops requires mandatory contact details: your first and last name, and email address.

 

Newsletter Subscription

Members are automatically added to our newsletter subscription list.

Non-members can sign up for our newsletter via our website. 

In both cases the data collected is: your first and last name, and email address.

We use your personal data for the following purposes:
