What information do we hold about you?

Keeping your information safe and up-to-date
Your data is held on a secure database.

In the unlikely event that personal data needs to be transferred outside the EEA, your personal information will be anonymised.
We are committed to making sure we have the most current information for you. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal data is accurate and up-to-date, and our membership data is reviewed annually. However, if it is the case that our records are out-of-date, please do let us know of your new circumstances and we will change your details on our system.
