This is the privacy policy of the Diving Medical Advisory Committee (DMAC). The latest version of this policy is available at

DMAC is the data controller. However, secretariat services for DMAC are provided by IMCA, which is a data processor on behalf of DMAC. Its privacy policy, available at (which sets out details on legal entities/contacts, your rights and privacy, our responsibilities, data collected, protection and processing by third parties), therefore applies in addition to the DMAC privacy policy.

In particular, we draw your attention to the data collected (item 4 of the IMCA policy):

  • Services for external organisations - IMCA provides secretariat services to the organisations listed below. For the purposes of data protection, each listed organisation is the data controller, while IMCA processes data on their behalf.

The 'other business records' point below applies equally to these organisations in respect of records of business activity and communications.
    • Diving Medical Advisory Committee (DMAC) - DMAC holds professional contact details for its members, whose names are published on its website at DMAC operates an approval system for training in diving medicine and holds business contact details for training providers, publishing on its website those contact details made available for such purposes by those providers.
