What does the Office do?

The CPG discharges the duties and functions of a recognised staff support network. As part of this work we must be able to contact our members, this requires the CPG to hold members data by consent.


How do we process data?

The CPG processes members personal data under the lawful basis of ‘public task’ and 'consent'. On occasion a member of the CPG NEC will contact you to ask for consent if this is required. We may also ask for further information to enable us to act for our members. We do not store information about any nonmembers.


What information do we hold about you?

The CPG holds personal data that is supplied to the NEC in their role as elected persons to represent the Guild nationally. This includes data from the joining contact form as well as information supplied by members in relation to matters that the Guild has been asked to pursue.


Will we share your data with anyone else?

If you have contacted the CPG about a personal issue we may pass your personal data to a third party in the course of obtaining redress of grievance or an answer to your enquiry, this will usually be a recognised police service. Under no circumstances will we ever share personal information with a third party for marketing purposes. Any third party that we may share your data with is obliged to keep your details securely and to use them only for the basis upon which they were originally intended. When your data is no longer needed to fulfil this service it will be disposed of. It is important to note that we will not use your personal data in a way that goes beyond your reasonable expectations of contacting us.
