The London Ambulance Service UNISON Branch is committed to respecting the privacy of its members and the privacy of users of this web site. To this end, the following policy has been established:
UNISON E-Mail Addresses
If you are a UNISON representative and have been issued with an @lasunison.com e-mail address then the above also applies. Your address will be stored by the webmaster and you may receive mailings from the webmaster, but only in connection with UNISON, the web site, occasional warnings such as virus attacks or in connection with your specific account. Your address will be displayed on the web site for members to contact you. If at any time you feel your account has been compromised we can change it or delete it for you. In 2004 we stopped issuing .com e-mail accounts to stewards and these are reserved for the exclusive use of branch officials and for the web site. Stewards and activists are encouraged to sign up for our new .net e-mail service which can be self managed.
If you sign up for one of these free accounts then you are agreeing that the branch may contact you on that address and can send you newsletters, news updates, benefits and other information that we think you may find of use as a UNISON member. We will not sell, rent, pass on or distribute your e-mail address to any other body including UNISON head office and will only be used by the Las Branch. You will not receive so called ‘spam’ mail from us. However, please be aware that the hosting company Everyone.Net also has your details and you should read their policy. If you are a steward, health & safety rep, lifelong learning rep, branch official or any other UNISON activist then we reserve the right to publish this e-mail address on our web site at www.lasunison.com. If you are not an activist and simply a UNISON member then we will not publish your e-mail address on our web site without your permission.
LasUnison.Com & .Biz Accounts
From time to time the website operates a prize draw for various different reasons. If you are one of our prize draw winners then by accepting the prize you agree to us publishing your name on our list of winners page and in any other publications that we may send out from time to time.
If after your name has been published you have good reason for having your name removed then please notify us in writing.
In 2006 we launched an SMS text message alert service enabling us to send news and updates direct to your mobile phone. Please be assured that we will not sell, rent, pass on or distribute your mobile phone number to any other person, organisation or entity including UNISON head office. Your number is stored on the text alert database only (unless you have subscribed via the newsletter subscription on the website) and will be used for that purpose only which is to send you news, information and views that the branch feels you would find of interest. You are able to remove your number at any time by simply sending an e-mail to the firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, mobile number and membership number. Text alert is only available for current members of the LAS Branch. Our text service is managed by http://www.24x.com/ and you should visit their site for further information.
We take your privacy extremely seriously and if you feel we have breached this policy in any way then please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com with details.
