The Society never uses them for ‘third party’ purposes – apart from sharing them with the OUYC and CUCrC. You are in control. If you have any queries, wish to restrict data processing or sharing, or do not want to be contacted by the Society, please inform us. (We always retain some information to make sure you are not contacted again inadvertently.)
