From time to time, paper copies of your data will be produced for administrative purposes. Your details will be used to enable the GHS to communicate with you about the activities and business of the Society.
Please help us to keep your records accurate by updating any changes to your name, address, email or telephone details. We will not share or sell your personal information with any other organisation. We will contact you if there has been a breach of the safety of your personal information. We will not keep your details beyond three years. All data will be disposed of securely.
