In order to provide an effective administration for the Area it is essential that we make full use of computing.
All officers work under the prevailing guidance of the Ramblers data protection officer and members can access that guidance at the website detailed below.
If you do have an email address we would ask you to keep the Area Secretary and your group informed as we are trying to make more use of electronic communications to keep costs down
In order to fulfil their roles Area and Group Officers have access to such contact information as you have provided to the organisation. Where a member has provided an email address, consent is effectively given for it to be used in furtherance of the organisation’s activities. If at any time you decide you do not wish to receive email communications please advise the Area Secretary. Members will in any event be reminded from time to time that it is their choice as to how we communicate with them.
In joining the organisation it is taken that members wish to receive such publications as are produced including Area and Group newsletters. To this end Area and Group hold addresses on computer.
The only information held is information provided by the member and it will not be divulged to third parties with that member’s specific consent.
In order that members can contact the appropriate local officer contact details of that officer will be published in newsletters but only to the extent that officer wishes.
Membership data may be used for managing membership status and subscriptions, communicating with members with regard to organisational issues and promoting Rambler’s events and campaigns. Only data needed for the specific purpose will be asked for or recorded.
