This is a summary of the Privacy Policy of the Barnes and Mortlake History society.

Your privacy is important to us. Any information you give to us will be held with the utmost care, and will not be used in ways that you have not consented to.

Any and all information collected at this site will be kept strictly confidential within BMHS and will not be sold, reused, rented, loaned, or otherwise disclosed to any external party.

Please note that some of our pages contain links to web sites which are owned or run by other history societies or museums which are therefore not under our control. Such sites are not covered by the Barnes and Mortlake Privacy Policy.

Information from our website.

Barnes and Mortlake History Society does not collect any personal information from users browsing our Web site other than through registration for membership, where the information is given voluntarily. We do collect aggregate data from Google – such as the number of visitors – and we will use this data to understand how visitors are using our site, so that we can make improvements where necessary. This data is used for internal use only.

Our Web site logs do not keep sufficient detail for us to be able to identify individuals, and we make no attempt to link them with the individuals that actually browse the site.

Use of BMHS’s Email Lists

Barnes and Mortlake History Society maintain an e-mail list to keep members informed about society events, lectures, newsletters, support, and subscription renewal notices when individuals voluntarily sign up for membership and provide an e-mail address.  BMHS does not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease the addresses on our list to anyone.

Restricting Particular Channels of contact

If you have supplied us with contact details of a particular type (for example, postal address, phone number or e-mail) we may use those details to contact you. If you do not want to be contacted by us via one or more of those channels, please contact us and tell us which ones we should not use. They are:

  • direct mail
  • phone
  • e-mail
  • all of the above

Legal Disclosure

When approached by the appropriate legal authorities, information about you, may be disclosed, but only when specifically required under the laws appropriate to the territory.

Financial Data Security

When we transfer and receive financial information as part of a membership or book sale transaction, we have appropriate security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site.
