101 Squadron Association Privacy Policy

101 Squadron Association (101SA) is committed to protecting your privacy. This page describes how we collect and use your personal information.

  • We only collect information with your consent
  • You have the right to withdraw that consent at any time, and change how we contact you or ask us to stop
  • We will only collect the minimum possible amount of information
  • We take the security of your information very seriously and will never sell it, or share it with another organisation without your consent

How do we collect information?

We collect information about you with your consent. That means we only collect information you give us, or have agreed we can have, for example, when you apply to join 101SA.

You have the right to withdraw consent at any time, no questions asked. If you no longer want to hear from us, or would like to change your contact preferences, you can do so by using the Contact form on this website.

What information do we collect, and how do you use it?

The information we require depends on the reason for which we collected it.

Mailing address provided on application to join.

Donation/ Subscriptions. The PayPal facility records details of your name and email address.

Bank details, if you set up a Standing Order for your membership subscriptions.

Your connection to the RAF or 101 Squadron, if you have chosen to tell us, which we use to evaluate our communications and services.

We’ll use this information to send you the 101SA newsletters, and to inform you about 101SA events. We may also be obligated to conduct due diligence checks to reduce the risk of fraud.

We will only ask you for information we need, for the purpose for which we are collecting it. And we will ensure you understand, at all points, for what purpose your information is being used.

We will never sell your information to third parties, and, if we have to share it with another organisation, we will only do so with your consent.

Social media

In order to leave a comment on our Facebook page, you must first seek approval from the page moderator. The moderator monitors comments to our social media to protect those who view them. The moderator will remove anything that is slanderous, libellous, discriminatory, abusive or contains offensive language. Please be aware that we cannot remove Facebook ‘likes’ and comments on Facebook posts are public.

If you have a complaint or comment about how we moderate social media, please contact us.

How do we protect your information?

We have a number of measures in place to protect personal information.

These include:

  • Only keeping information for as long as strictly necessary
  • Up-to-date virus and malware protection
  • Password protection when sharing information externally

How can you access your information rights?

Subject Access

You have the right to a physical copy of any information we hold about you, free of charge. You may also want to know, for example, where we got that information, how we use your information, and with whom that information is shared.

If you would like to make such a request, please contact us.

Updating your information

We want to make sure we only contact you in ways you would expect, and that we keep our records
up-to-date where possible. Please let us know if you:

  • change your contact details.
  • want us to stop contacting you.
