On 25 May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force across Europe. It introduced stricter requirements on the way we handle data.
Positive consent from our members is necessary before we, the Pictish Arts Society Committee, can communicate with them by email or by post or by phone. Members can withdraw their permission at any time by contacting [email protected]
Personal data supplied by our members is kept on file and is used solely to communicate with members. The Sign-in book at lectures also contains names and addresses of those attending lectures. Personal data will not be shared with any third parties.
Members’ names and addresses/email addresses are kept for distributing our Newsletters by post/email, sending information about the PAS Conference/AGM and Brechin lecture series, occasional items of interest, and reminders about subscriptions. Phone numbers are kept in case of last minute changes or cancellations, e.g. if a speaker falls ill shortly before their talk.
Data will be deleted once it becomes clear that membership has ended after reminders about late payment have been sent.
Members have the right of access, referred to as subject access, to obtain a copy of their personal data. This is obtainable, subject to proof of identity, from the Membership Secretary.
Pictish Arts Society.
