Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

The Leamington Society takes your privacy seriously and takes every practicable measure to ensure your information is safe and accurate at all times.  We never sell your data or share it with anyone except with individual member’s written, or emailed, permission.

The GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation, requires us to tell you the lawful basis for processing your information. The Leamington Society has chosen to rely on what the new legislation calls ‘legitimate interests’.  Put simply, we undertake to keep you, as a member of the Leamington Society, informed of our work via publications such as our newsletter and reminders of forthcoming talks and events (currently via MailChimp).  We feel you would expect us to do so.

This policy explains why we collect information from you, what information we need and how we use it.

Why do we collect personal information?

You may give us your personal information in order to sign up for membership, make a donation or make a special payment.

What information we need

The personal information we need to collect may include your name, address, email address, telephone number, payment card or bank details.

What your personal information may be used for?

We will only use your personal information to

  • process membership subscriptions, donations and any special payments,
  • confirm details of your Gift Aid status if applicable,
  • keep you informed of our work via publications such as our newsletter and reminders of forthcoming talks and events.

Removal of your data

At any time, you can change how you hear from us or have your data removed from our database.  Contact our Membership Secretary, currently Margaret Begg mbegg@cbegg.com or 01926 423 822

What if there are changes to this statement?

Occasionally, we may need to update our Privacy Statement. We reserve the right to amend, update or replace this Statement at any time. Your continued membership and use of membership services will constitute your acceptance of any such changes we may make. Any changes will be published, so please make sure you check this page from time to time on the website.
