Personal data collected and processed by us may be shared with the following third party groups, where necessary for the administration and record keeping of association functions:
When we do allow third parties access to your information as set out above, we will always have complete control of what they see, what they are allowed to do with it, and for how long they can see it.
We NEVER sell your personal information. We never share it with third parties other than as stated above. You are always in control of how we communicate with you. You can update your choices by contacting us as set out in section 11 below.
We retain your information for the shortest appropriate period for each of our purposes as set out in section 4 above, and we review these regularly to ensure we are not holding it for longer than necessary.
