Cwrdd yng Nghymru – partneriaid diwydiant Croeso Cymru

Pan fyddwch yn cofrestru i fod yn un o bartneriaid diwydiant Croeso Cymru naill ai drwy:

• Gofrestru i dderbyn cylchlythyr Cwrdd yng Nghymru i’r diwydiant
• cofrestru fel partner ar stondin Croeso Cymru yn ein digwyddiadau busnes i fusnes neu ar stondin Cymru mewn digwyddiadau ar gyfer cyflenwyr, 
• cyflenwi gwasanaethau ar gyfer ymweliadau ymgyfarwyddo 
• hunan gofrestru ar ein gwefan fel cyflenwr o Gymru ar gyfer digwyddiadau busnes, 

Gallwn ofyn ichi am wybodaeth bersonol. Mae angen yr wybodaeth hon arnom er mwyn arfer ein hawdurdod swyddogol. Ein swyddogaeth fel Llywodraeth Cymru yw masnachu a hyrwyddo Cymru i'r diwydiant teithio yn y DU a thramor fel cyrchfan cyfeillgar i ddigwyddiadau busnes. Un o brif elfennau ein swyddogaeth yw hwyluso, hyrwyddo a chynorthwyo’r ffordd y caiff cynhyrchion a gwasanaethau digwyddiadau busnes eu gwerthu yng Nghymru, a thrwy wneud hynny, hyrwyddo busnesau Cymru ar yr un pryd. Felly, bydd yr wybodaeth bersonol y byddwn yn ei chasglu yn cynnwys:

• Eich enw ac enwau eich cydweithwyr, er enghraifft cynrychiolwyr ychwanegol
• Rhif ffôn cyswllt, cyfeiriad e-bost a gwybodaeth am gysylltiadau mewn argyfwng

Byddwn yn prosesu'r wybodaeth hon at y dibenion a ganlyn:

• Er mwyn cymryd archebion ar stondinau digwyddiadau neu i drefnu ymweliadau ymgyfarwyddo ac i ymdrin â cheisiadau busnes
• I roi cyfle ichi fod yn Bartner Diwydiant Croeso Cymru mewn digwyddiadau yn y dyfodol y bydd Croeso Cymru yn rhan ohonynt
• Yn dilyn digwyddiadau neu gyfarfodydd gyda darpar gleientiaid o Gymru, bydd aelod o Croeso Cymru yn cysylltu â chi i drafod unrhyw ymholiadau sy'n deillio o ddigwyddiadau sy'n berthnasol i'ch cwmni chi
• Os ydych wedi bod i un o'n digwyddiad Busnes i Fusnes, byddwn yn anfon arolwg ar ôl y digwyddiad atoch i'w lenwi a fydd yn cael ei ddefnyddio i lywio unrhyw benderfyniadau yn y dyfodol sy'n ymwneud â digwyddiadau y bydd Croeso Cymru yn rhan ohonynt
• Byddwn yn defnyddio'r manylion i fesur a chadw llygad ar ddatblygiad busnesau sy'n gysylltiedig yn uniongyrchol â'r niferoedd sy'n mynd i ddigwyddiadau neu gymryd rhan mewn ymweliadau ymgyfarwyddo
• Byddwn yn rhoi eich manylion i gwmnïau cysylltiadau cyhoeddus fel y gallant sicrhau cymaint â phosibl o gyfleoedd i roi cyhoeddusrwydd i’ch cwmni, gan godi proffil Cymru o fewn digwyddiadau busnes
• Byddwn yn rhoi eich manylion i ddarpar gleientiaid busnes sy’n dangos diddordeb mewn dod â busnes i Gymru.
• Os bydd Cwrdd yng Nghymru yn defnyddio cwmni rheoli digwyddiadau ar gyfer trefnu presenoldeb o Gymru mewn digwyddiadau neu i drefnu ymweliadau cyfarwyddo, caiff eich manylion eu rhoi i berson cyswllt penodol ar gyfer Croeso Cymru yn y cwmni rheoli digwyddiadau fel y gall drafod â chi fanylion y gwaith cynllunio ymlaen llaw y mae gofyn ei wneud.
• Oni bai fod trefniadau eraill wedi’u gwneud â Diwydiant Cymru bydd y cwmnïau uchod yn gwaredu unrhyw ddata personol pan ddaw’r contract i ben.
• Byddwn yn rhoi manylion eich cwmni i gwmni ymchwil trydydd parti er mwyn darparu ystadegau ymchwil blynyddol a gwybodaeth i Lywodraeth Cymru. Bydd hyn oll yn llywio polisïau a chynlluniau yn y dyfodol.

Os nad Croeso Cymru yw prif drefnydd y digwyddiad, bydd eich gwybodaeth yn cael ei rhoi i drefnwyr digwyddiadau a stondinwyr trydydd parti i gymryd archebion; caiff hyn ei nodi ar ffurflenni archebu digwyddiadau. Os ydych chi, fel partner diwydiant Croeso Cymru, wedi cytuno i gael eich cynnwys mewn ymweliad ymgyfarwyddo a gynhelir naill ai gan Croeso Cymru neu gontractiwr/trefnydd trydydd parti, byddwn yn trosglwyddo eich manylion cyswllt er mwyn trefnu archebion. Ni fydd unrhyw wybodaeth bersonol am unigolion sy'n gweithio mewn cwmnïau yn cael ei rhannu gyda sefydliad trydydd parti nad yw'n gysylltiedig â'r gwaith a wneir gan Croeso Cymru, fel y nodir uchod.

Byddwn yn cadw'r manylion ar weinydd diogel am ddeng mlynedd ar ôl y dyddiad y cysylltwyd â chi ddiwethaf. Mae rhwymedigaeth gyfreithiol ar Croeso Cymru, fel rhan o Lywodraeth Cymru, i gadw trywydd archwilio o bartneriaid Cymru sy'n mynd i ddigwyddiadau. Bydd y diwydiant yn defnyddio'r wybodaeth hon fel tystiolaeth o bresenoldeb wrth ddarparu adroddiadau i gyfiawnhau a nodi gwerth ar wariant y cyhoedd. Gallai hynny fod o fudd i’r cyhoedd.

Mae gennych yr hawl i weld y data personol yr ydym yn eu prosesu amdanoch, i gywiro unrhyw wallau, mewn rhai amgylchiadau i wrthwynebu eu prosesu neu ddileu eich data, ac i gyflwyno cwyn. Byddwn yn diweddaru eich manylion personol wrth ichi roi gwybodaeth newydd inni.

Gallwch ddysgu mwy am ba wybodaeth sydd gan Croeso Cymru amdanoch chi a'ch busnes drwy anfon e-bost i meetinwales@gov.wales
