Privacy Policy


This privacy policy sets forth MB&BCS’ practices regarding the collection and use of “personal information” as well as the choices we offer you regarding the use of this information with respect to our website. “Personal Information” is information that personally identifies you, including, for example, your name, address, and email address.


Personal data (name, address, contact phone number, email address and membership type/details) are stored in a password protected document on our computer database.

We will typically use this data for the following reasons:

  • To enable us to send you the quarterly magazine by post
  • To contact you regarding your membership renewal  
  • To provide email updates from the society (with an option to unsubscribe at any time)

If you decide to leave the society, we will remove your personal information from our records.


If you provide your contact details to us on this website, via written forms, through the contact us page, on social media or similar platforms, we will process your information only for the initial purpose you outlined.

Please note, due to the structure of the society, it is likely your details will be forwarded onto a committee member who will reply for their personal email address. We inform all our committee members to delete enquiries once they are dealt with.

Digital newsletter

If you sign up online or at an event for our e-newsletter, we will store your name and email address securely our our email system, Mail Chimp. You will receive email updates from the society about events, news and activities. You have the option to unsubscribe at any time by using the links at the bottom of each email.

Digital processing

Please note this policy only addresses our activities from MB&BCS. Other sites (including those that we link to and third party sites or services which we co-brand) may have their own policies, which we do not control, and thus are not addressed by this policy.

Our servers automatically collect information about which sites users visit and which pages are viewed within the MB&BCS website.

We may use this information, among other things, to anticipate and resolve problems with your service, to investigate activity that may violate our Terms of Use and to develop and market products and services that may be of interest to you.


We cannot ensure that your private communications and other personal information will not be disclosed to third parties. By way of example, without limiting the foregoing, we may be forced to disclose information to the government under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.


You can direct any questions concerning our GDPR terms to the Chair of the society, via email here.
