Personal data supplied by our members is kept on file and is used solely to communicate with members.  The Sign-in book at lectures also contains names and addresses of those attending lectures.  Personal data will not be shared with any third parties.


Members’ names and addresses/email addresses are kept for distributing our Newsletters by post/email, sending information about the PAS Conference/AGM and Brechin lecture series, occasional items of interest, and reminders about subscriptions.  Phone numbers are kept in case of last minute changes or cancellations, e.g. if a speaker falls ill shortly before their talk.


Data will be deleted once it becomes clear that membership has ended after reminders about late payment have been sent.
