PRIVACY POLICY

THE FOREST INDUSTRY STANDARD

FISA Privacy Policy - May 2018 

The Forest Industry Safety Accord (FISA) was developed in 2012 by representatives from many of the leading industry organisations following a safety summit instigated by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). It commits each member’s organisation – and the sector at large - to raise the standard of health and safety in their place of work in order to reduce the number of serious and fatal accidents in the forestry sector.

FISA takes data security extremely seriously and has a data protection policy in place to ensure its data is secure and used within the law.

WHAT DATA do WE HOLD? 

FISA members are a mix of Companies and Individuals. FISA holds member data on its database, collected through membership registration online. This includes contact details and email addresses where given.

SENSITIVE PERSONAL DATA

FISA is aware that it holds some personal data that could be considered sensitive, such as business turnover; forest management areas; and timber tonnage harvested, transported and sold. This information is subject to additional security within FISA and is never shared with third parties. 

DATA USAGE AND SHARING

Member data is primarily used by FISA to deliver member services. Only member names, company names and business addresses are listed on the FISA website, unless specifically requested not to be. Contact can also be made with Company members via an email form. 

FISA will only share member data, such as mail and email addresses with third parties like mailing houses (election mailings) and a data sharing agreement ensures safe transportation, storage, and disposal of data.
