General Data Protection Regulation 2018

Many members will be aware that new rules about personal data came into force on 28 May 2018.

The Society has to keep some details about you for membership purposes. This is generally restricted to your name and address and membership number. In some cases we may have your email address and/or phone number as well if you have provided it.

The details we hold about you are never passed on to outside organisations. It is held by the membership secretary on a computer with virus and firewall protection. The length of time we hold your details can vary depending on your length of membership. Also we do not automatically delete details of people who do not renew membership as we sometimes send further invitations to rejoin. 

If you have any queries about our policy please contact David Shepherd, our Secretary.
