Protection of Members' Data

GDPR 2018

At the end of May 2018, data protection rules in the EU are changing, under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

To make sure we are as clear as possible about our holding of personal data we would like to provide an overview of how we use any information that you share with us.Membership of TAA, as a professional Association, is through an annual subscription payment. Information collected and stored by TAA is used only to enable the running of the TAA.

What membership information do we collect and why?

Qualifications and overseas experience are needed to verify membership suitability, your address is used for membership correspondence and dispatch of journal, and to enable communication specific to regional activities. Home/ mobile telephone numbers are used if your address/ role changes, allowing us to contact you and ask for an update of your data. Year of Birth and Gender are optional but are useful to help us dentify the age range and gender ratio of members.

Members are initially provided with an individual membership number, together with a temporary password: both are needed to access the full website and online Ag4Dev Journal. Individual passwords are then set by membersand will NOT be viewable by TAA officials. In case member loses details then Membership Number and/or Password, please contact the Membership Secretary, who will provide your member number and guidance on how to reset your password.

We will never sell the information you share with us or swap it with another organisation. We want you to know that you are always in control of your information and can view, update or delete your own personal data when logged into the website.

News Alerts

Current members will receive regular news, event and publication alerts. They have the opportunity to opt out of these at the time by logging-in to the membership page (top right corner) and visiting their membership profile on the website. 

For any questions relating to your personal data, please get in touch by emailing the Membership Secretary
