FELHS Data Protection policy

The General Data Protection Regulation came into force on 25 May 2018 and applies to FELHS as a not-for-profit organisation which collects, stores and uses personal data, in particular the names, addresses, e-mails and phone numbers of members. Under 'legitimate interest' existing members will continue to receive Bulletins and any essential mailings.

FELHS only use your data for specified purposes and legitimate interest in ways that you would reasonably expect:
(a) to cover membership subscriptions.
(b) to send out the Bulletin or other circulars related to FELHS.
(c) to support our claims for Gift Aid payments from HMRC.

FELHS takes data protection very seriously and will take every practical step to ensure the information is safe and accurate. You have the right to access your personal data and to correct any inaccuracies in that information, or to ask for it to be removed at any time.

Your data will be deleted on resignation of membership after Gift Aid claims have been completed. We do not use your data for purposes other than those specified. We never share/sell your data with third parties, unless we ask specific individual permission, e.g. when dealing with research queries.
