Protecting your personal data

New EU legislation is coming into effect on 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulations or GDPR. This is bringing the biggest change to UK data privacy laws for twenty years.

Here at CHECT we want to make sure that we have an up to date record of your details so that we only send you news and information in the way that you want to receive it. To do this, we are asking you to take 30 seconds to update your consent, to tell us how we can contact you going forward. Obviously email is the easiest and quickest way for us to communicate with you. If you would like to keep receiving news and updates by email and other methods, we need you to tell us so that we are communicating in the way you want after 25 May 2018.

CHECT will never pass your details onto third parties or share them with other organisations without your permission (unless required to by law), other than to those engaged in the delivery of our services and then only for a specified purpose. Our Privacy Notice tells you exactly how we use your personal information.

You can always contact us at any time to change the way we communicate with you if your circumstances change, or to let us know that you no longer wish to receive our news (call us on 020 7377 5578 or email

We appreciate this feels like one more thing to do when you are already so busy, but it’s really important that you take just a moment to let us know that you want to carry on hearing from us. We really value being able to contact you, and hope you feel the same!
