About CSci

Privacy Policy

The Data Protection Act 1998 protects the rights of individuals by making sure that any organisation that collects or holds information about living people does so in a way that is fair to those people.The Science Council is responsible for maintaining the Master Register of Chartered Scientists (CSci), including the specialist register of Chartered Science Teachers (CSciTeach), and the Public Register contained on this website. Registrant is the term used here to describe any holder of the CSci or CSciTeach award.

Collection of personal information
The Science Council collects registrant data from its Licensed Bodies every quarter on the basis of new registrants and personal and status updates to existing registrants. This data is used to maintain the Master Register. The data held by the Science Council includes name, address, gender, date of birth, membership number and ethnicity. We do not collect more information than is relevant or necessary.

Public Register
The names, registrant numbers, Licensed Body affiliation, CSci award date and status of all registrants are published to the public register, which is only accessible online via the website. No other data which has been provided to the Science Council, including date of birth and address details, is published to the Public Register.

All registrants have the right to opt out of appearing on the public register and to opt back in at any time. To opt in or out of the public register at any time, registrants should contact their Licensed Body, which will then update the Science Council.

Use and disclosure
Other than that information that is made publically available through the Public Register as detailed above, the Science Council’s policy is not to disclose any personal information that we hold on you to any unrelated third party.

The Science Council uses all reasonable efforts to ensure that personal registrant information provided is held securely.
