In the lead up to the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), coming into effect on 25th May 2018, the FSA has reviewed its data management and data security procedures. These are reflected in our new privacy policy (below). The main changes are:

  1. Member’s accounts, and all their personal information, will be deleted from the membership management system after 2 months of their membership lapsing. We are required to retain your payment details for accounting purposes.
  2. We can no longer contact lapsed members directly. However, anyone is able to subscribe to updates from the FSA website or follow us on Facebook.
  3. Cookies are used on the FSA website. A cookies acceptance button has been added to the website.
  4. An SSL certificate has been added to the website to encrypt the data flowing between your machine and our servers.

Privacy policy
By applying for membership of the FSA you are giving permission for the FSA to use the information that you provide in accordance with our privacy policy. Our primary means of contacting you will be by email and we will not write to your address unless this is the only means we have to contact you or to deliver a member service. Please ensure that we have your current details in your member profile. We will not share your details with third parties. Your information will be held within the FSA website member management system. Once your membership lapses it will be held for 6 months to give you a chance to renew. After that it will be deleted from our system. Our website does not capture any of your financial information when you make online payments to the FSA. Our website uses cookies and you will be asked whether or not you will accept them. Our membership management system automatically captures how many times individual members log into their account and when they last logged in. Members may request that their account and all associated data be deleted at any time, although this will result in the termination of your membership. The FSA website has an SSL certificate and is encrypted to help keep your personal data secure.
