Using Personal Information
Members, non-member organisations and other partners and suppliers
The RCPA regularly communicates widely with organisations in the health and social care and other sectors, both members and non-members. We do this to support the development of care and support services by sharing information about topical issues, events of our own and those of other organisations. This means that we contact organisations by email and sometimes telephone. This will often be the personal email addresses and/or telephone numbers of individuals who work in an organisation. This personal information is kept by the RCPA solely for the purposes explained above.
How we use this personal information
We store this information electronically so that we can send you;
information about the RCPA’s and other organisations’ events

- relevant health and social care information from other sources
- information about relevant topics and services from our current sponsor organisations.
- For members, we will use this information to contact you while providing you with support, advice and other services.
We will not provide your name or contact details to any third-party organisation or individual, including our sponsors.
We store and use this information on the basis of consent. We will ask for your consent annually, for the RCPA to store your personal information for the purposes described above.
You can withdraw your consent for us to store and use your contact details at any time. However, bear in mind that your organisation may stop receiving information from the RCPA as a result. You may therefore wish to provide us with the contact details of someone else in your organisation.
