All financial transactions carried out on our website are handled by Wild Apricot and their third party payment services providers. We recommend that you read the relevant privacy policies prior to affecting any transactions with us. We will provide your personal data to third party processors only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments for transactions you enter into with us.

We do not knowingly process data of any person under the age of 16. If we come to discover, or have reason to believe, that you are 15 and under and we are holding your personal information, we will delete that information within a reasonable period and withhold our services accordingly. You can only join the mailing list or apply for membership if you are aged 16 or over.
8. Other disclosures
In addition to the disclosures reasonably necessary for the purposes identified elsewhere in this privacy notice, we will disclose your information to regulatory and/or government bodies and/or law enforcement agencies upon request only when required to do so in order to satisfy legal obligations which are binding on us.
9. Security of and access to your personal data
We endeavour to ensure that there are appropriate and proportionate technical and organisational measures to prevent the loss, destruction, misuse, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access to your personal information.
Your information is only accessible by a small number of individuals who wish to provide you with relevant information, event organisations and other services of benefit to our membership as described in Section 11.
As a member of this website, during the set-up process, you will set the level for each of your data in the application form to be shared with the public, the members of the website, or just for the admin of this website. You are in control of the above by logging into your profile to make changes and no one else. As the admin, only if we are requested by the owner of the data would we update the preferences on behalf of the person.
We may also use agencies and/or suppliers to process data on our behalf. We may also merge or partner with other organisations and in so doing transfer and/or acquire personal data. In particular, we work closely with professional organisations in the UK. Data is shared only to the extent that is necessary to achieve our purposes (see Section 11).
Otherwise, as set out in this Privacy Notice, we will only ever share your data with your informed consent.
10. Your rights
Where we rely on your consent to use your personal information, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. This includes the right to ask us to stop using your personal information for direct marketing purposes or to be unsubscribed from our email list at any time. You also have the following rights:
To exercise these rights, please send a description of the personal information in question using the contact details in section 16 below. You can unsubscribe from our email lists and withdraw consent for the processing of your data at any time via your Profile. You can find information and help on changing your settings on our Website Help page. Where we consider that the information with which you have provided us does not enable us to identify the personal information in question, we reserve the right to ask for (i) personal identification and/or (ii) further information.
Please note that some of these rights only apply in limited circumstances. For more information, we suggest that you consult ICO guidance or contact us using the details in Section 16 below.
You are further entitled to make a complaint about us or the way we have processed your data to the Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”). For further information on how to exercise this right, please see the guidance from the ICO.

Achieving our purposes
These include (but are not limited to) promoting education and communication within Anthroposophic Health, Social Care and Education in the United Kingdom and worldwide.
Communication with members
Financial Management and control
When we use your personal information, we will consider if it is fair and balanced to do so and if it is within your reasonable expectations. We will balance your rights and our legitimate interests to ensure that we use your personal information in ways that are not unduly intrusive or unfair in other ways.
12. Data retention
In general, unless still required in connection with the purpose(s) for which it was collected and/or is processed, we remove your personal information from our records six years after the date it was collected. However, if before that date (i) your personal information is no longer required in connection with such purpose(s), (ii) we are no longer lawfully entitled to process it or (iii) you validly exercise your right of erasure, we will remove it from our records at the relevant time.
In the event that you ask us to stop sending you direct marketing/fundraising/other electronic communications, we will keep your name on our internal suppression list to ensure that you are not contacted again.
13. Notice amendments
We keep this Privacy Notice under regular review and reserve the right to update from time to time by posting an updated version on our website, not least because of changes in applicable law. We recommend that you check this Privacy Notice occasionally to ensure you remain happy with it. We may also notify you of changes to our privacy notice by email.
