- The Tissue and Cell Engineering Society (TCES) holds members’ personal information under the “consent” legal basis as set out in the “General Data Protection Regulation Article 6(1)(a) – Consent of data subject”.
- Consent can be withdrawn any time by contacting the society’s secretary, Prof Sarah Cartmell, via firstname.lastname@example.org
- After informed of the consent withdrawal TCES will delete all records associated with the member within 1 month.
- TCES holds and processes personal information (name, email address, institution, address, phone number, career stage, name of academic supervisor (if applicable)) of its members only to be able to provide members with a membership in the society and with the benefits of said membership.
- No personal information will be shared with third parties, with the exception of providing the organisers of the annual TCES conference with the name and membership type of members in order to be able to provide members with discounted conference registration fees.
- Personal information is held during, and for three years after the expiry of, an active membership subscription. The latter is done in order to enable expired members to renew their subscription without the need for re-applying to the society.
- Members have the right to access their personal data held by TCES. This information is provided to them freely, and can be accessed through the TCES website’s membership pages. This information can also be requested via contacting the society’s secretary via email. Such requests will be dealt with within 1 month. The identity of the person making the request will be verified via email before the information is provided.
- Members are entitled to have personal data rectified, if it is inaccurate or incomplete. This can be done freely through the membership pages on the TCES website by the member, or alternatively by contacting the society’s secretary via email. Such requests will be dealt with within 1 month.
- Members have a right to have personal data erased and to prevent its further processing. Erasure can be requested by contacting the society’s secretary via email. Such requests will be dealt with within 1 month. Personal data will be automatically erased upon the withdrawal of consent by the member. TCES will be unable to provide the member with a membership subscription after erasure.
- Members can request TCES to block or suppress processing of their personal data. During this period the personal data will be held in the TCES membership database, but will not be further processed. TCES is unable to provide the member with the benefits of the membership subscription during their personal information being blocked or suppressed from processing. Restriction can be requested by contacting the society’s secretary via email. Such requests will be dealt as soon as reasonably possible, but within a maximum of 1 month.
- Members have a right to raise a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ico.org.uk) if they believe their personal information is stored or processed unlawfully.
