The Psychometrics Forum is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide us with, will be processed by us. The information will be used only in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

How do we collect information from you?
You supply information by completing a membership form, or by requesting that you are put on to our mailing list.
How is your personal information used?
We only keep relevant information about members for the purposes of membership administration. We also keep information on members and the wider mailing list to enable us to provide updates on events and offers, such as training discounts.
When we run events, on occasion delegates are offered a free trial of a psychometric assessment from a test publisher or training provider. Delegates are asked if they would like to participate in the free trial before their email address is passed to the test provider.
We do not pass any personal information to third parties for marketing or any other purpose.

We will endeavour to remove your personal data from our database within 3 days of your request.
Protecting your information
We follow security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information you have provided to us, to ensure that your personal information is safe from access by unauthorised persons. We keep your information confidential and store it securely.
Disclosure of information
We reserve the right to access and disclose individually identifiable information to enable us to comply with any relevant laws and lawful government requests to operate its systems and protect itself.
We report certain types of personal data breaches to the relevant supervisory authority within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach, where feasible. If the breach results in a high risk of adversely affecting individuals’ rights and freedoms we also inform those individuals without undue delay.
