Halifax and District Organists’ Association collects information about its members, including their names, addresses, email and telephone numbers.  Where a member pays their subscriptions by BACS, we also maintain a record of bank details.  We may also hold information (usually name, address, email and telephone number) about people with whom we have worked in the past and may work with again in the future (e.g., organists and clergy).  We do not pass on this information to third parties for the purposes of sales, marketing or allied commercial activity.  We may occasionally pass on such information to other trusted individuals, charities and organisations linked to our charitable purposes, e.g., to facilitate the arrangement of an event, recital or talk.  If you do not wish your information to be passed on under these circumstances, please let the secretary know directly.  HDOA’s full privacy policy can be found here: HDOA Privacy notice.
