New rules relating to how we collect and process personal data, and how we communicate with you, came into effect as from 25th May 2018. The new regulation, known as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) [Regulation (EU) 2016/679] replaces the previous 1995 regulations which current UK law is based upon. As a result, the Society needs your specific consent for collecting and processing personal data.
An explanation of the Society’s policy on collecting and processing personal information is described in a separate document, viewable by clicking here. This can also be downloaded as a pdf file from the same page.
The Society currently holds the following personal data provided by society members:
the names, addresses, emails and telephone numbers of nominated society contacts and members, as you gave to us when you joined the Society or afterwards.
We use this information to let you know about activities and news from ourselves or other organisations and societies. Email is the preferred method of communication although the Society may on occasion also telephone members, usually if there is a problem with other methods of communication. Personal information will remain confidential to the Society and will not be supplied to third parties.
