Privacy Policy

The International Neurological Physical Therapy Association (INPA) is committed to protecting the rights and privacy of those whose personal data we hold. This personal data will be collected and handled securely.

The United Kingdom Data Protection Act 1998 and General Data Protection Regulations 2018 (GDPR) govern the use of personal data.

The Committee of INPA and some others are personally responsible for processing and using personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Act and GDPR and will comply with this Data Protection Policy.

Legal bases
The law on data protection sets out a number of different reasons for which an organisation may collect and process your personal data, including:

  • Consent: We can collect and process your data with your consent. For example, when you subscribe to our Members’ mailing list.
  • Legitimate interest: In specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our organisation and which does not materially impact your rights, freedoms or interests. For example, if you are a key contact of an INPA member organisation, INPA network.

Where we rely on our legitimate interest
In cases where we are processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest, you can ask us to stop for reasons connected to your individual situation. We must then do so unless we believe we have a legitimate overriding reason to continue processing your personal data.

All members of INPA and others whose personal data we may hold will be asked to give consent for our use of their personal data. The reasons for our use of their data will be explained to them. They may restrict the use of their data for specific operations, and they may change their choices at any time. They may withdraw their consent at any time.

What personal data is held by the International Neurological Physical Therapy Association?
Name, address, telephone number/s, email address, work role and/or title, workplace, country of work. If you contact us e.g. by email, we may keep a record of that correspondence.

On the password-protected server of the INPA website and the password-protected computers of the Membership Secretary, President, and other committee members inside and outside the European Economic Area. By submitting your personal data, you agree to INPA transferring, storing or processing your data. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

What is this data used for?

  • Sending newsletters and publications
  • Communicating with our members about our work and inviting their comments
  • Alerting our members of the General Meeting, the agenda, motions, and how to nominate to the committee
  • Sending information about conferences and events

How long do we keep your data?
Whenever we collect or process your personal data we will only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. At the end of that retention period your data will be deleted completely.

Your duty to inform us of changes
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your relationship with us.
