What information do we collect about you?
We collect information about you when you create an online account with us, when you become a member, when you make an enquiry on the website and/or when you register for an event. This includes basic contact details (including but not limited to name, company, email address, telephone) as well as potentially some questions about the nature of your business with China.

This content can be accessed by our team in the China and our partner organisation – the China-Britain Business Council in the UK. Appropriate security measures are in place to ensure your data is secure.

Being a member
Our membership includes being kept informed (via email) of China business news, updates on the China business environment, business opportunities, information about government and business delegations, events and webinars, including some sponsored content. You may unsubscribe from this at any time by following the instructions in the email.

Further member correspondence may come from our China Business Market Advisors about activities in a relevant sector or region, and from the membership team concerning membership status and renewal.

Participating in events
For delegates:
During event registration, delegates are asked to actively give consent for relevant contact details needed to inform the delegate about the details for that event (reminders, agendas, changes etc.).  Further consent will be sought for any issues beyond the scope of that event.

For any events co-organised by BritCham and a 3rd party, during registration delegates will be informed as to which details will be shared with the 3rd party organisation and asked to actively give consent for their details to be shared in this way.

At some events there may be photography and/or filming. This will be included in the consent terms when registering for the event. This material may be used in event reports, articles and related marketing collateral.

For external suppliers:
In order to protect your information, all external suppliers will be required to complete a questionnaire to demonstrate how they comply with GDPR. Personal details will never be shared with a 3rd party without the express consent of a delegate.
