On 25 May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force, reflecting the importance of data protection in an increasingly digital world. It is important for the Academy for Healthcare Science (AHCS) that the personal information of registrants, our partners, our customers and our own staff is handled in accordance with GDPR.
As the regulator for Healthcare Science Practitioners, the Academy needs to ensure the information it holds about its registrants is accurate and up to date, not just at annual registration renewal but when anything changes.
Under UK GDPR, we are unable to keep your data unnecessarily, therefore we will be sending out reminder emails to applicants who haven’t logged into their portal after a period of time. This will be an automatic email sent on behalf of the Clinical Research Practitioner admin team.
The automatic emails will be sent after:
- 6 months of no activity: First reminder email to log back into your portal account.
- 7 months after no activity: Final reminder email to log back into your portal account, after another 30 days your account will be removed.
- 8 months after no activity: A final email to let you know that your account will be deleted due to no activity within the last 8 months.
