The data we hold is so that we can:

  1. understand which organisation you work for and your role (employee, job title);
  2. can contact you (telephone no; email address; social media contact information)
  3. know what contact we’ve had with you before and have a record of your response (email trail; marketing communications received and whether or not they were opened).
