Your data is as important to us as it is to you.
Who will we share your details with?
As a Member of the Young European Movement, UK (YEM) you are also members of:
a) YEM Branches – If you’ve joined us at a national level we may pass your data to your local YEM branch- this will often, but not always, be linked to a University or an area. University branches are normally part of the student union and so may be required to meet any requirements that they have put in place.
b) JEF-Europe – We’re the UK section of the Young European Federalists. Together we campaign across Europe to shape the future that we as young people want. In the past that included helping to insure that the UK was represented in the European Union. Of course that work will still continue through the other trans-European bodies.
c) European Movement, UK – We’re the youth wing of the European Movement in the UK. They, like us, run local branches that you may be interested in getting involved in and you’ll see emails sometimes from them as some of our records are held jointly in their membership database system.
So we will share your details with those above. To do this your data may be processed primarily in the UK, European Union or USA depending on the service provider we are using. We will seek to ensure that they look after your data in accordance both with UK law and applicable laws in their jurisdiction.
Other third parties
There are limited occasions that we will share your details with other third parties.
1) The running of the organisation – For example we have used services such as MailChimp to run our mailing lists.
2) For specific activities – This will normally be where you’ve applied to be a participant, such as a seminar with a partner organisation.
3) Young European Movement Ltd – This one’s listed as a technicality- as an organisation we’ve formed a company as a legal entity.
In all cases we will do our best to ensure that your data is not used for commercial purposes.
