Under requirements of The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) act, we have a legal duty to protect any personal information we collect from or hold about you. We do not pass on your details to any third party unless you explicitly give us permission to do so.

These communications may be sent from time to time to inform you about our events, activities and services. Should you not wish to receive further communications from DAC you should notify us of this.

The information we collect

We collect data from our website for a number of reasons, primarily to provide you with the most useful and relevant information and services from DAC. We do this through collecting and analysing both anonymous, or aggregate, data, and personal data volunteered by you online. This information may include your name, address, telephone number and email and GMC number. We may use this personally identifiable information to process any requests, applications or transactions undertaken by you and for internal administration and analysis. We undertake to use this information only for the reason you have supplied it or any other reason for which you have given us permission to do so. DAC does not sell, rent, or disclose any information to third parties for their marketing purposes unless you give us permission to do so.    Where relevant, information is provided to explain why the data is being collected and how it will be used.   In addition to information given explicitly by you, we may also collect information about your visit to our website (for example, the date and time of your visit and the pages that you view). This information is not connected to you personally, and is in aggregate form. This kind of data helps us to understand how our visitors use our site so that future website development can enhance your user experience.

Subject access request 

We will provide individuals with a copy of any information relating to them within 40 calendar days of receiving such a request. You should contact the Data Controller at DAC if you require this or have any queries about information we may hold about you.

Right to be forgotten

Under Article 17 of the GDPR individuals have the right to have personal data erased. This is also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’. Upon receipt of such request we will act upon the request without undue delay and at the latest within one month of receipt.

Data retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

Email communications

Email is DAC’s preferred channel for members’ communications.  DAC uses a third party service provided by MyL2P Ltd to deliver its appraisal form fiunctionality and in some cases its e-mails, messages and other DAC related communications in a timely and convenient format. This was selected as it provides a proven, trusted and widely-used service which provides the security that we regard as essential when handling DAC appraiser and appraisee’s  contact information.   You can choose to unsubscribe from receiving emails at any time. However, if you do so, you may miss some important DAC related communications, which may relate to your license to practice and revalidation.
How do we protect your personal information?

We use secure software to protect your online transactions. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect the personal information you provide to us against accidental, unlawful or unauthorised destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use and other unlawful forms of processing. 

Scope

This privacy policy covers the DAC website and organisational processes in providing appraisals for UK licensed doctors.  It does not cover any external third-party operated websites accessed by links from within our site.

Review 

This document will be reviewed at any time there is a significant change to systems/procedure and, at minimum, will be reviewed annually. The policies contained within this document represent the security responsibilities of all DAC staff and employees. They are to be adhered to at all times and locations whenever DAC activities are being performed.
