DPA data danger - please only use CII supplied data lists

Some local institutes have historically maintained member data lists of their own, which they use to send communications to members. This practise is precluded by the Data Protection Act (DPA). Please ensure your local institute only uses the data lists provided by the CII, which are those automatically uploaded to your eflyer tool and your membership lists contained within Network Know-how.

While members are affiliated to their local institute, their DPA permissions are agreed with the CII, therefore non-CII maintained lists are not compliant with the DPA. If a formal complaint is raised against the local institute, its officers could be held personally responsible and be faced with a substantial fine.

If you do have additional data lists, please cease using them with immediate effect.
