Overview of our approach to privacy

At Northern Tamil Association (UK), we’re committed to protection and respecting your privacy.

Whose personal data do we have

We obtain personal information about you from the following sources:

  • You
  • Northern Tamil Association website, when taking up membership

Sharing of personal data

We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf: We may pass your information to our third-party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to send you mailings for events). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond the NTA UK Network for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.


Rights of access, correction, erasure, and restriction

The accuracy of your information is important to us. We’re working on ways to make it easier for you to review and correct the information that we hold about you. In the meantime, if any of the information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please email us at:

You can ask to delete information (your right to be forgotten): In some circumstances, you can ask for your personal information to be deleted, for example where

  • Your personal information is no longer needed for the reason that it was collected in the first place
  • You have removed your consent for us to use your information (where we have no other legal reasons to use it)
  • There is no legal reason for the use of your information
  • Deleting the information is a legal requirement.


Security measures

Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
