A. We hold only those contact details and subscription records which are necessary to administer the Society and to provide the services that Members are entitled to receive in return for their membership.  Members may ask to see the information held about them by sending an email to membership@scottishswedish.org  They may also request that the information about them be deleted.  We do not use the information for any commercial purpose nor pass it on to third parties.  The main membership records are held on a system that is not part of the website and which is not connected to the internet.  A list of names and email addresses is held on a separate site that we use for sending circulars to members.
