This may include your name, title, email address, physical address, telephone numbers, job title and GMC number if applicable. We may also ask for some additional, non-personal information. Where you log in as a member our website will track your browsing on our site. We use this information only to help measure the relevance and popularity of our content.

2. Our use of this information

Your personal information will only be used to process your requests, to provide you with our services, to provide or administer activities relating to our services and to provide you with information relating to our services and events.  Your personal information will not be sold or disclosed to third parties without your permission unless we are required to do so by law.

3. Security

We will take reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of information you give us.  Though we cannot guarantee the security of the Internet, this website has security measures in place to protect the information you provide us.

We do not use secure server software (SSL) where you choose to join the society or subscribe to our email service, as you are not required to input any credit card details.  Communications in connection with all services may be sent by e-mail.
