CA London does not request, collect or process personal information from its membership* (see note below), from professionals or from the general public. However our Website and Instagram may collect certain data to enable the operation of these systems.
• We do store some members’ email addresses on the system to enable them to make changes to their meeting information if they chose to be able to do so. The email address is stored in a closed part of the system that is password protected, with access limited to the Website Administrators. As and when the person rotates from their service position, their email address is deleted from the system.
• We do store some members’ first name, initial and mobile phone number on the system if they are a Meeting Responder. We display this information on the website with their additional permission. This data is collected to enable communication between Call Takers, Helpline Chairs, and Meeting Responders. As and when Meeting Responders rotate from their position, their information is deleted from the system.
• All information is securely stored and is only used for the purpose specified. The storage and handling of personal information complies with the UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
When visitors leave comments on our systems we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website or Instagram, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Images may be download by third parties and location data extracted.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
