Fair Collection, Processing and Privacy Notices

The Wales Trades Union Congress (“the Wales TUC” or “TUC”) organises and administers funding for trade union education courses and Trade Union Education Service and Learning Services funded events and seminars in Wales.  The Wales TUC is the ‘data controller’ for the purpose of the data being collected from you for this event.

To be able to provide funding for the event you are registering to attend and to administer the event and monitor which union reps/members are attending, the Wales TUC requires the following  information: your name, your union, email and home address.

The Wales TUC may also request that you provide information on your gender and ethnicity for the purposes of equal opportunities monitoring. You can contact us and opt out of providing this information if you wish but we would encourage you to provide it as the information is for monitoring purposes only and will be treated confidentially as set out below.

The Wales TUC also provides an email alert service to send out emails with details of courses, events, information and resources that we consider to be relevant to your union role. We may also contact you to take part in research related to trade union education and/or your role. These emails are kept to a minimum and you can unsubscribe at any time. We encourage all reps to join the email alert service so that you are kept informed about learning opportunities and events.

Where a third party website is used, (e.g. Eventbrite) the data you provide at the time of registration for an event or course will be kept in accordance with the terms of the website used to collect the data. Please note you will be asked to read and agree to the terms and conditions and privacy policy of that site e.g. Eventbrite).

The information will be used by the Wales TUC for a number of purposes which are stated below. We are also required to share some data with our funders (Welsh Government) and with your own union. Data will only be shared securely when necessary and will never be passed on to any other third parties except with your explicit prior consent.
