Essex Bat Group data policy

As a membership organisation, we hold a list of members and their details. This is so that we can keep you updated with our activities, let you know about any opportunities for involvement and to share with you relevant and important information about bats and bat conservation (primarily from ourselves but also from the Bat Conservation Trust – as we are a partner group).

For each member we hold the following information:

·         Name
·         Postal address
·         Phone number(s)
·         Email address

We will hold these details on our membership database for up to 2 years after your membership has expired (membership expiry is 31st December each year). This is to provide you with an opportunity to renew your membership. After this point, we will delete your personal details.

We do not share this data with any third part.

Individuals can request for their personal data to be removed from our list at any time by contacting
