Personal Data Protection Policy

Introduction

Most holders of personal data pertaining to non-family members of the public are required by law to follow the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation legislation. This requires holders of personal data to provide a statement of why that data is collected, how it is used, how it is stored and arrangements for its correction and deletion.

 

Why do we collect your personal information?

i)            To maintain a list of Members. This is used:

                 to send out Membership Renewal forms

                 to manage subscription payments

                 to communicate information to Members about our Meetings and Excursions

                 to send Newsletters

                 to pass on other matters of likely interest to Members.

ii)           To maintain a list of Non-Members who have been on our Excursions or who have expressed an interest in doing so. This is used:

                 to send out invitations to join our Excursions. This fills extra seats on the coaches and hence makes the excursion fees more affordable.

                 to invite them to become Members of the Association by sending them a Membership Application Form.

iii)         To maintain a list of Transport-Industry Experts who can speak on transport-related matters. This is used to invite an Expert to speak on a transport topic at an Association Event.
