We use personally identifying information from email primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your email to other staff members who are better able to answer your questions.

9. Opt-Out or Change Your Contact Information


You may opt out of receiving any correspondence other than what is needed to administer the platform at any time by logging in to your account and editing your email preferences to None.


Your Marketing Permissions


The NMRN always acts upon your choices around what type of communications you want to receive and how you want to receive them. However there are some communications that need to happen regardless of your marketing preferences. These are what we would describe as essential communications to fulfil our promises to you as a volunteer or services from the NMRN. An example of this type of communication would be:


  • Email confirmation of signing up to the DIVE system
  • Administrative and Policy information and updates


Whenever we send you a communication that we deem as essential, it will not contain a direct marketing ask such as sending you new challenges weekly, so that we respect what you have told us on that subject.


10. Disposal of personal data

NMRN are committed to safely and securely disposing personal data through the use of shredding and confidential waste collection, and the deleting of inactive data from the digital platform and its servers in line with time frames that are set out through the General Data Protection Regulations 2018.
