INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU
You can visit this website without revealing any information to us about yourself. However, there are parts of the Forum website where we will need to collect your personal data in order for you to proceed.
Whenever we ask you for information that enables us to identify you it will be clear that we are doing so and in every case you will have a choice as to how we use the information that is asked for. Information of this type will only be asked for on those parts of our websites that allow transactions to be performed, in contrast to those parts of our websites that are merely informational in their function. Providing details for our online directory, or booking for training, for example, necessarily requires that we collect personal information from you.
Information of this type will also be collected when you contact us directly by email for any reason or if you specifically request that we send you information.

WHY WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM YOU
Your personal information is needed so that you can use the transactional areas of our website.
It is also needed so that we can contact you if you have asked us to do so or if it is necessary as part of a particular transactional process, for example in order to validate a booking.
HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Your personal information enables us to supply the services you have requested. It will also enable us to contact you where necessary concerning any transaction you have undertaken.
We may use your information to contact you for your views on our services and to notify you occasionally about important changes or developments to the website or our services. If you change your mind about being contacted in the future, please let us know.
PROTECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
The personal information you provide to us will be held on our computers in the UK and may only be accessed by or given to individuals working for Forum
If Forum and/or one or more of the Forum projects enters into a joint venture with, or is merged with a third party entity, your information may be disclosed to those who own, control and work for the joint venture or the merged or third party entity.
Unless required to do so by law or to protect our own interests, we will not otherwise share or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent and we will not sell your personal information without such consent.
We employ security measures to protect your personal information from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. We will retain your information for a reasonable period or as long as the law requires.
ACCESSING AND CHANGING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You are entitled to see the information held about you and you may ask us to make any changes to ensure that it is accurate and kept up to date and reflects any change in preferences you may have previously expressed about the way in which we can use your personal information. If you wish to do this, please contact us.
