9.0 My Account > Communication Preferences

We now have two Communication Preference questions. Prior to 1st November 2020 this was called Personal Consent and members were asked one question.

Members can change their consent at any time from this page.

The consent that you are asked to give relates to the following information:

  • Your membership number
  • Your name(s), and
  • Your contact address (your email and/ postal address)

9.1 Consent to Publish Personal Information

By giving your consent we will publish your details in an edition of our quarterly when you first join our Society. This is circulated both in paper and electronic form. Copies of our journal may be shared with other organisations and persons outside of our society membership. 

We will need this consent before publishing any article or notice from you in our journal.

We may also publish your personal details elsewhere in the public domain, such as in a news article, in which case we will contact and discuss this with you beforehand.

 

9.2 Consent to Disclose Personal Information to Members

We will need this consent before publishing any article or notice from you on member accessed areas of our web site, and to include and surname interests on the database. 

Please Note: The system allows you to give consent to the first question but withhold consent regarding the second, which is counterintuitive. Where you select these two options together we will reset the first question to withheld.

You can find more information about Communication Preferences on our Data Protection page
