Deleting Your Data

We may also keep anonymized demographic data for historical reporting purposes. This demographic data will not contain any individually identifiable personal information.
AWCA enables members to sign up to receive newsletters and/or membership-related emails as part of its mission to promote community and ensure the Club functions as per its Bylaws. Each member always has the right to control whether they receive these newsletters or emails. If a member has previously signed up to receive a newsletter and no longer wishes to receive it, every newsletter includes an “unsubscribe” link at the bottom. You can always click that link to unsubscribe from the email.
A request to be removed from any or all newsletters may also be made in writing by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your personal information is only accessible by certain members of the AWCA Board, by the web manager, or by Committee Chairs. Those allowed access to this data are given strict GDPR-compliant guidelines about how the information may be accessed and used.
Your data is stored by AWCA in a password-protected database on our web server. When filling out the online application, or updating your membership data online, your personal data is sent directly via encrypted HTTPS connection to our password-protected database.
AWCA never shares or sells your personal information to any third party for any purpose not directly related to our organization’s mission.
However, AWCA does use third party suppliers to provide some services necessary to serve our membership. These suppliers may process personal data on our behalf as “processors” and are subject to contractual conditions to only process that personal information under our instructions and protect it.
In the event that we share personal information with external third parties, we only share such information strictly required for the specific purposes and take reasonable steps to ensure recipients shall only process the disclosed personal information in accordance with those purposes.
These third parties currently provide services for AWCA and we have documented that they are GDPR compliant:
