This notice is applicable to all past, present and future members of the Signalling Record Society.

The Society respects your right to privacy. The personal information you provide is held on computer in the SRS Membership Database and is used to record and verify your membership of the Society, to enable us to mail you the copies of The Signalling Record to which you’re entitled, to contact you by post (and/or by email should you agree to it) on any Society matter, and to grant you access to any facilities and entitlements available only to members of the Society.

The printers of The Signalling Record carry out mailings of the journal on our behalf. We supply your name, address and membership number to them for that purpose. This aside, the Society does not share any of your personal information with any third party unless obliged to under UK law.

A little reminder: The Membership Secretary can only start the process of admitting you into membership when he is in possession of both a completed application form and either a cheque or other confirmation of payment. As some aspects of the process rely on postal rather than electronic communication and actions by more than one Society Officer, there may be short delay before he receives all the relevant documentation.
