NAPLIC is an established charity supporting teachers, speech and language therapists and other professionals who work with children and young people with speech, language and communication needs.

NAPLIC is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy, and aims to be clear and open about how your data is used.

Please note that we reserve the right to access and disclose individually identifiable information to comply with applicable laws and lawful government requests, to operate our systems properly and to protect both our users and ourselves. All our information collection processes conform to latest Data Protection legislation.

Your data

We may collect personal information provided by you:

  • At the time of registering as a NAPLIC member
  • When subscribing to our newsletters and NAPLIC News
  • When applying to attend conferences
  • If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence
  • Details of transactions you carry out through our site and of the fulfilment of your orders
  • Limited details of your visits to our site, including which pages you visit and what you do via our website hosting package

How we use your Data

Information collected from the registration process about your place of work and profession interest will be retained securely and only used to help the NAPLIC committee to understand and analyse the membership and conference attendee profiles.

Information received via web cookies, is used to enhance your experience of the site, fault resolution and for logged-in members to ensure access to entitled resources (see cookies note). Your consent to use your data for such contact is valid for 18 months. After this time, if your membership expires, we will erase your data from the NAPLIC records and you will need to register again via the website if you wish to rejoin NAPLIC or purchase a conference place.

All personal data is held within an IT secure environment.

Controlling your data

Data will be controlled by the NAPLIC Committee Membership Officer and processed by the NAPLIC Committee Officer with responsibility for Website Data Protection Management.

We do not share, sell or rent your personal data to third parties for marketing purposes.

Members have the right to view all personal data held and can at any time cancel consent to use that personal data.

Contacting you

From time to time, we email you with information regarding NAPLIC activity which we think will be of interest to you. From our understanding of GDPR guidelines, these emails fall under legitimate interest as NAPLIC news and newsletters form a key part of your membership. If you are registered as a member, we will also email you to remind you of the date your membership is due.

Declining to give consent will not affect your membership but you will no longer receive direct communication from NAPLIC with the exception of automated email membership renewal reminders and a small number of conference related notifications.

If you have any queries or wish to not receive any news from NAPLIC, please contact
