GDPR Updates

As a valued member of the global CIBSE community, we want to make sure you only ever receive emails and communications that are relevant to you. CIBSE need to move from an opt-out system to an opt-in system.  This requires us to confirm with each of you that you are still happy to receive CIBSE communications.  The new regulations come into force in May 2018, you will need to actively ‘opt in’ to receive the information you want and are interested in.  

The GDPR creates some new rights for individuals and strengthens some of the rights that currently exist under the DPA.

The GDPR provides the following rights for individuals:

  • The right to be informed
  • The right of access
  • The right to rectification
  • The right to erasure
  • The right to restrict processing
  • The right to data portability
  • The right to object
  •  Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.

27 September 2017 update

We will be updating you each month on different issues around GDPR.  We will notify you as soon as our 'opt in' system is ready to go.
