Data Protection by Design | Privacy by Default
The CWO takes Data Protection extremely seriously and the CWO Executive have agreed to have a Data Protection Officer to train, advise and help the CWO to ensure that your data is protected at all times. They can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
The General Data Protection Regulations apply from the 25th May 2018. It applies to both data controllers and processors.
Within the Conservative Women's Organisation [CWO], the organisation is the controller and authorised users of our database are processors.
The "CWO" includes the national office at CCHQ, the officers of its 12 regions around the UK and officers of any Areas that are subsets of the regions.
NB: Constituency/Association Women's Groups, Committees or Lunch Clubs fall under the constitutional remit of the association, so are not covered by our own policies.

What the CWO does NOT store:
Access to the CWO Extranet is determined by need and authenticated users are only shown data which is relevant to their role.
The CWO retains personal data for no longer than is necessary, but as we use data for campaigning purposes, we will not remove your data unless you leave the Party, or have asked for your data to be removed.
Data that cannot be removed includes:
We will adhere to any requests where you want your personal details deleted from our database. According to the GDPR, you have a right to have personal data erased and to prevent processing in specific circumstances:
If any of the above applies, please email the CWO Data Protection Officer with your name, any other email addresses you may be registered with and your home address, so we can ensure that all your personal data is erased.
The following cannot be erased for accounting or security reasons, but we will suppress any future processing of that data.
Information relating to your order, including your postal address, may remain on these separate data tables but your main record will be permanently deleted. If you wish to re-join the CWO, then you must complete the Join the CWO form, to reinstate your record.
The CWO uses Google Analytics and MailChimp and/or Campaign Monitor, all of whom are certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield and the CWO database syncs with MailChimp and Campaign Monitor using their API.
