In keeping with new data protection legislation, like all other organisations in the UK, it's important that we make clear how and why we use personal data. This policy sets out all you need to know but please always feel free to give us a bell or drop us an email if you want to chat it through.

In a nutshell, the SMP works on the basis that it has a legitimate interest to use the data provided by its members to support members' links with Malawi. Members can choose at any time how much information on their Malawi link is publicly available on the SMP website, and how we communicate with them.

The privacy and security of personal data is very important to us and we take the responsibility seriously.
