National Pubwatch Data Protection Statement

This statement confirms the National Pubwatch (NPW) commitment to protect your privacy and to process your personal information in a manner which meets the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and prior to 25 May 2018 the Data Protection Act 1998


Who are we and what do we do

  • National Pubwatch is a voluntary organisation which was established to create safer drinking environments in the pub and hospitality sector through its support and good practice advice for local Pubwatch schemes. It is not a membership organisation. We do not charge for our services.
  • National Pubwatch is registered with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) for the purpose of ‘the prevention and detection of crime’.


What personal information we may process

Nearly all the data we collect will be because the data subject has contacted NPW for information and advice. We have no wish to store or use any personal data where the person does not wish to have an ongoing relationship with us. The information we collect may include:

  • Names and addresses and occupations
  • Contact information e.g. email address
  •  Organisation or company details


We may use this information for the following reasons:

  • To allow password protected access to our website for the purposes of obtaining NPW ‘good practice’ documentation.
  • To allow local Pubwatch members to register their schemes on the NPW mapping tool
  • To allow us to circulate information such as the NPW electronic newsletter by email
  • To manage registration and associated processes relating to our conferences
  • To manage processes relating to nomination of individuals or Pubwatch schemes for NPW awards

What we do not collect
NPW does not manage or accredit local Pubwatch schemes. We do not collate personal information relating to any person who may have been subject to exclusion by a local Pubwatch.

We have an automated email response to all persons seeking information about an exclusion, advising that they should contact their local Pubwatch direct. We may enter into correspondence with persons who contact us in an attempt to provide advice or assist with a personal problem but we will delete this record as soon as the issue is resolved.

If we feel that a crime may have been committed, we will pass that information onto the Police or other regulatory authority.


NPW has appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to prevent:

  • The unauthorised or unlawful processing of your personal data
  • Accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to your personal information

Retention of personal information

We will not keep your personal information for longer than is necessary for our purposes

Your rights to access your personal information

Where we hold your personal data, you are entitled to a copy and have any inaccuracies in your information corrected. If you wish to have your data deleted and not to receive any further contact from NPW we will endeavour to comply as soon as reasonably possible.
