Nautilus International collects and maintains personal information in order to carry out its functions as a trade union, provide membership services and comply with certain statutory obligations. All personal information is treated with the utmost confidentiality and with appropriate levels of security. By joining the Union and remaining in membership you agree to our processing your personal information, including sensitive personal information, such as trade union membership, for the following purposes.
The personal data will be used for a range of Union-based activities relating to the running of the Union including the maintenance of records, monitoring for equal opportunity purposes, assisting with employment disputes, ballots, recognition arrangements with employers, injury claims etc and other services and benefits. All information (updated as appropriate) will be kept throughout membership and, to the extent necessary, for such reasonable period after membership as may be necessary to enable the member to access any post-membership benefits.
Data will be available to our employees both at head office and other offices. It will be available to third party organisations where they are associated with the Union - such as lawyers and service providers. Where the union uses the services of other such organisations, they are contractually obliged to process your data on behalf of the Union as data processor and in a secure and confidential manner under our strict instructions. The Union does not sell any personal information to third party organisations.
From time to time we may wish to use the information together with any other for analysis and/ or marketing purposes. In particular, this may benefit you as the Union can use its collective bargaining strength to negotiate attractive terms and the provision of a wide range of additional member benefits and to contact you with details of any that we feel may be of particular interest.
Members have the right to object to and stop direct marketing (to them individually) in any form by organisations contacting them on behalf of the Union. If they wish to exercise their right to object to stop such direct marketing then they should write to membership services at the Wallasey office requesting that such mailings be stopped, or alternatively, write to the organisation in question direct. The Nautilus International membership number should always be quoted. Please, however, understand that this may preclude you from receiving details of any of these additional member benefits and offers in the future.
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 you also have the right to ask for a copy of your information (for which a small fee can be charged) and to request correction of any incorrect information held.
If you respond to any of the requests for information in our feedback service, you may as a result submit to us your email address. It is our policy not to pass this information to any third parties without first obtaining your consent. We may use aggregate information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring in order to help us develop our service and may provide such aggregate information to third parties. These statistics will not include information that can be used to identify any individual.
What are cookies?
We use the term ‘cookies’ in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
What type of cookies does Nautilus use?
Generally, our cookies may perform the following functions:
- Essential: Essential or ‘per session’ cookies are temporary cookies that only remain in the cookies file of your browser until you leave the website. For example, when a member logs in to the membership area we store their membership number, name and class in a cookie to control their access to the site.
- Performance: These cookies are stored on the user’s computer. These contain no personal information and are simply used to improve performance and assist in navigation. They remain in the cookies file of your browser for longer than essential cookies (dependent on the lifetime of the specific cookie). These cookies are used to store information between visits to a site.
We also use or allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the categories above. For example, like many organisations, we use Google Analytics to help us monitor our website traffic, and cookies may also be served via Nautilus Jobsite, or online surveys, and via online PDF editions of our Telegraph which are published on Yudu.
We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms & conditions and copyright policy.
Do we track whether users open our emails?
No. Our emails do not contain a single, campaign-unique ‘web beacon pixel’ to tell us whether our emails are opened and verify any clicks through from links within the email. Some websites may collect this information for purposes including determining which emails are more interesting to users, and query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them. The pixel is deleted when you delete the email.
