As a membership organisation we have a duty to keep your personal information safe and secure.
Our members' details are held in a secure database. Members have online access to their own records; the only other people with access to records are LCER officers and staff. Members can amend or delete their own records, by accessing their account online, or by asking us to do it, in writing or by email. Donations and payments are managed by a secure payments service; we hold no financial data except the last four digits of your payment card number.
We never share information with third parties without first obtaining active consent from the members concerned. LCER members wanting to set up local campaigns sometimes ask to be put in touch with other members living in their area. In the event that a member were to agree to their details being passed on in this way, we would share only their name, email, phone number and CLP.
We sometimes publish lists or profiles of individuals or groups that support the introduction of PR, but would only do so with the express consent of all concerned. We acknowledge the right to withdraw consent once it has been given; in such cases we will make every effort to retract the relevant material, although this may not be easy once it has been put in the public domain.
If a member fails to renew their subscription after reminders, we will terminate their membership, but will retain the individual on our database as a mailing list subscriber.
Members and subscribers can stop receiving briefing emails by clicking the Unsubscribe link on the emails, or by amending their membership record online. Non-members who unsubscribe from our briefing emails will be removed from our database; members who unsubscribe will stop getting briefings, but will still receive notice of AGMs and executive elections, unless they also terminate their LCER membership.
Membership services are provided by the US-based Wild Apricot Membership Management Services; member payments are processed by the UK-based payment platform Stripe.
