These are  age, disability, marital/civil partnership status, pregnancy/maternity, race, gender, sex, religion and belief. Discrimination against individuals or groups on the basis of these characteristics is illegal in the UK and the EU.

All the information collected in the survey will be stored anonymously. No personal identifiers or contact details of respondents will be retained.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR) the lawful basis we rely on for processing this information is that you have provided it with your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting the WIGS Diversity and inclusivity Officer, Professor I. M. Nick (mavi.yaz@web.de)

We will use the information you have given us to assess the current representation and employment status of respondents with protected characteristics among the membership of the AGS / WIGS. We will not share this information with any other third party. 

Your information will be securely stored on a private, password protected server.

We will keep it for as long as it takes for statistical analysis to be undertaken, and for a maximum of 10 years, after which it will be securely destroyed.
