What is GDPR?

The organisation, through its data protection officer, committees and Governing Body has undertaken substantial work to ensure that as an institution we adhere to data protection best practice.

What GDPR means for you

GDPR means you as a consumer have more control over your personal data – how it is obtained and processed; as well as providing a range of rights that cover aspects such as accessing and amending your data.

How we process your data as a member/associate of IAHIP.

General Statement

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable living person. IAHIP processes personal data for numerous purposes, and the means of collection, lawful basis of processing, use, disclosure, and retention periods for each purpose may differ.

When collecting and using personal data, our policy is to be transparent about why and how we process personal data.


We take the security of all the data we hold very seriously. We have a framework of policies, procedures and training in place covering data protection, confidentiality and security and regularly review the appropriateness of the measures we have in place to keep the data we hold secure.

When and how we share personal data

We will only share personal data with others when we are legally permitted to do so. When we share data with others, we put contractual arrangements and security mechanisms in place to protect the data and to comply with our data protection, confidentiality and security standards.

  • Third party organisations that provide applications/functionality, IT or other services to us. We use third parties to support us in providing our services and to help provide, run and manage our systems, for example, providers of information technology, cloud-based software as a service provider, identity management, website hosting and management, data analysis, data back-up, security and storage services. The servers powering and facilitating that cloud infrastructure are located in secure data centres in Europe, and personal data may be stored in any one of them.
  • Third party organisations that otherwise assist us in providing goods, services or information
  • Auditors and other professional advisers
  • Law enforcement or other government and regulatory agencies or to other third parties as required by, and in accordance with, applicable law or regulation

Occasionally, we may receive requests from third parties with authority to obtain disclosure of personal data, such as to check that we are complying with applicable law and regulation, to investigate an alleged crime, to establish, exercise or defend legal rights. We will only fulfil requests for personal data where we are permitted to do so in accordance with applicable law or regulation.
