Data Protection and Privacy
We use the details you provide on the membership form to keep in touch with you. We deliver the Newsletter to your door and occasionally send emails, if you gave an address. The emails include a link enabling you to unsubscribe from our list, should you wish to do so. Very rarely, we may need to phone you.
Our policy is to use your details only for these purposes and we will not pass them to other organisations.
We use a mass email service - currently 'Mailchimp' - and the email addresses are stored on their servers (ie. only the email addresses - no names, postal addresses or phone numbers).
We believe that they take data security as seriously as we do.
If you have concerns about the data we hold, please contact the membership secretary.
Our Membership Secretary :-
Changes to the membership spreadsheet and the email distribution list are made as above. We keep a record of membership status on the spreadsheet. If after due reminder the subscription is unpaid, the member is removed from the list.
When changes are made to the spreadsheet, a copy is sent to the Webmaster for 'offsite backup'.
