The Society records members' personal details in an online database. A member's contact details (email and postal addresses and telephone number if provided) are stored in the database in an encrypted form for additional security. In line with the EU General Data Protection Regulations (2018) these contact details are no longer available to other Society members unless access permission has been specifically given by the member. At a current member's request these details can be marked as "Public" and will then be available to other current members. The details will, however, be available to the Society's Committee for administrative purposes but will not be disclosed.
