Membership Application Terms & Conditions


The Royal Society of St. George (RSSG) will hold certain personal information (known as ‘Personal Data’) about you. Personal data is information from which you, as an individual, can be identified.

Without this information the RSSG is not able to include you in its membership.

The information we will retain about you

Identity and contact details:                                       The information provided by you on the application form

And, if paying by direct debit or standing order:          Details of bank account.

In addition we retain details of your membership type, years of membership and subscription payments.

How will this Information be used?

Authorised persons within the administration of the RSSG, process this information in order to communicate, promote and manage its activities, collect annual subscriptions and for general administration. If you choose to belong to a branch of the RSSG, authorised members of the branch administration will also process your information in order to carry on similar actions at branch level. 

The RSSG will ensure:

  • Your information will be processed fairly and legally.
  • If for some specific purpose further personal data is required, it will not be collected without notification and terms of use.
  • Sensitive personal data (as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation) will not be collected or processed by the RSSG without a full explanation of its purpose and your explicit written consent.

Who do we share your data with?

With the following exceptions, the RSSG will not share your data with any third party:

  • There is specific written consent by you.
  • From time to time it is necessary for the member’s database to be accessed for maintenance and upgrades by the service provider. This access is protected by a legally binding non-disclosure agreement.
  • If you are in an article in the St. George for England Journal or website, (but only name, branch and by consent, photo)


Currently the only activity that crosses international boundaries is data given by overseas members and the distribution of the Journal.

If an event arises requiring your data be sent by the RSSG beyond the EU, then it will only by your permission or legal scrutiny.

How long will we keep your data

Your data will remain on the database for as long as you are a member. When you leave, your data will be truncated to name, branch, years of membership (or date of leaving) and the category of the reason for you leaving.

What rights do you have.

  • You have the right to see the personal data that is held about you and have a copy provided to you or someone else on your behalf, in an electronic format and at no cost.
  • If you believe your personal data we hold is inaccurate, you can ask to have it corrected.
  • Where you have given consent for the RSSG to process your personal data, you can withdraw that consent at any time.
