There is a new data protection law coming into force in May 2018. As part of this, we are required to explain to our members what personal data we hold, what we do with it, and their rights to access or change that data.

The Society stores and uses personal data given to us by members as part of their joining or membership renewal. This personal data includes only names and contact details, along with records of membership payments or other donations to the Society.

We do not share this data with any other organisations. Personal data is held securely and is only available to the Society’s Trustees.

Every email we send has an unsubscribe link at the bottom, allowing members to automatically remove their email address.

Society members have the right to see what data we hold on them, and for any of that data to be corrected, or for historic data no longer required by law to be removed. All requests of this type should be sent to the Treasurer who acts as the Data Controller for the Society.

We use cookies, as most websites do, to help us improve and provide you with the best experience we can. A cookie is a small file, which is placed on your computer's hard drive, that helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used and typical user paths through the site. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you but it does capture the user's IP address.
