Purpose and legal basis of processing your Personal Data:

  • We process membership data so that we can fulfil our obligations to you as members. This includes offering discounts on goods sold, notifying you of meetings and occasionally informing you of workshops and other opportunities. We treat the legal basis for processing your data as ‘Contractual’, as you have signed a membership form. The personal contact data which we ask of you is necessary for us to carry out this arrangement.
  • We may also offer to add day members and other interested parties to a Newsletter Mailing List. If you agree to this, the legal basis for processing your email address for this purpose is ‘Consent’. We will only store your email address. You can withdraw this consent at any time, by unsubscribing from the list (which you can do directly with MailChimp using the link on every emailed Newsletter). If you do this, your email address will be removed from the list and you will not receive any further Newsletters.
