Privacy policy

The Chartered Institute of Taxation aims to protect the privacy of its members, students and website visitors by adhering to current privacy legislation and practice.

Your rights

You have a right to know about the personal information we hold about you. You also have a right to have your data corrected or deleted. Please address all your requests and/or queries about our data protection policy to us.

Third parties

Where we hold contact information, we may on occasion pass this to third party organisations that can provide you with relevant services. Your details are never passed without your consent.


We will from time to time send you unsolicited notification of important information about our activities. By providing us with your email address you agree to this use. If you believe we are sending material which you would prefer not to receive, please contact us. We consider the use of email to be vital in delivering information to our members in a timely manner and for a very low cost. Using email to communicate certain information frees up valuable resources which can then be used elsewhere to deliver greater value services. We hope you agree.

Traffic analysis 

We monitor the popularity of pages on this site and the most common routes taken from page to page. This helps us to design areas which are of more relevance to our visitor preferences.


ATT/CIOT will not disclose personal information to anyone, apart from authorised staff and volunteers, and only if this is needed to help and advise you, or unless we are under a legal obligation to disclose it.

Data protection

ATT/CIOT is committed to following the principles of the Data Protection Act. The purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998 is to protect the rights of individuals with respect to the processing of their personal data, and to ensure that organisations which process personal data do so in a fair and proper way. Processing includes the collection, storage, retrieval, use, or disclosure of personal data. Further information on the Data Protection Act principles and obligations can be found on the The Information Commissioner's Office website.

You have the right at any time to know what information we hold about you, and to see it. If you wish to exercise this right, please write to the Data Protection Administrator at:
