The Sylvia Townsend Warner Society - PRIVACY POLICY

Personal Data held by the Society

If you are a member of the Sylvia Townsend Warner Society you have informed us of your name, postal address and post code, telephone number and email address. We use this data for the purposes of record keeping and for the sending out of Society Journals and our twice-yearly collection of smaller articles about, or by Warner, along with Society information. We may also use it to send you information directly by post or email about Society events and activities. We may also send information about forthcoming publications relevant to the Sylvia Townsend Warner Society, but these will be for information only and not in order to sell any publication or service to you directly.

Data Storage

The personal data of the Society's members is stored in an Excel spreadsheet containing postal address, telephone number, email address, date of joining the Society, payment record and payment method. This is maintained by the Membership Secretary and stored on a secure computer. In future we may use other storage methods but they will always be fully secure and only available to Committee members, for Society business as stated above.
