Third Parties

We will only use your information within the UK National Commission for UNESCO for the purposes for which it has been obtained. This may mean that we sometimes share data with UK Government Departments for whom we are providing a service to. The UK National Commission for UNESCO will not, under any circumstances, share or sell your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes and you will not receive offers from other companies or organisations as a result of giving your details to us.

We may need to share your information with “data processors” such as our service providers, who we use to send out our regular monthly newsletter and to store your information on our Customer Relationship Management System. These “data processors” will only act under our instruction and we will not allow these organisations to use your data for their own purposes and will take care to ensure that they keep your data secure. These “data processors” have all shown compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation and we have records of their compliance.

We will also comply with legal requests where disclosure is required or permitted by law, (for example, to government bodies for tax purposes or law enforcement agencies for the prevention and detection of crime, subject to such bodies providing us with a relevant request in writing).
