6.2 Retention Policy
Individual Members, please be aware that we will retain information of Individual Membership numbers, the dates this was in place, the District Council allocated and the details of any SNU awards gained.
This retention policy is to enable the SNU to produce historical statistical information from time to time. Also, should you ever wish to re-join the SNU and are able to provide your previous IM number we can trace information.
None of this retained information will be traceable back to a named individual without provision of the previous Individual Member number by the individual member. Confirmation of identity will be required before any retained information is divulged.
The Individual Members retention policy does not apply to Church Membership.
You will be asked to sign to confirm your acceptance of this Privacy Statement when you apply for church membership.
If, for whatever reason, your church membership becomes lapsed, you will be invited to sign a consent form regarding retention of your information. This form is contained in the Data Protection Checklist for Churches and Centres. It is also issued as a separate document for churches to use
By submitting your personal data, you:
(1) declare that you have read, understood and accepted the statements set out in this data protection clause;
(2) are declaring that the information given in the application is complete and true to the best of your knowledge, and understand that deliberate omissions and incorrect statements could lead to your application being rejected; and
