Data Protection and your privacy

We hold personal information about members - name, address, telephone number, email address and next of kin emergency contact details. Click the links below to see the relevant policies about how we protect this information.

Since the u3a has adopted “Legitimate Interest” as its justification for holding members’ data, it does not require specific consent for this purpose, so the corresponding requirement will no longer appear on membership application and renewal forms.


Members’ data are not sent outside the u3a except for the distribution of its own Newsletter and the National Office Magazine, and the operation of the out-sourced membership system. Gift Aid data are also sent to HMRC.

At any time, members may ask to see the data held, and to correct it and have their data deleted, as far as legally possible, by contacting the Membership Secretary at u3amembership@chiltern-u3a.org.uk, or c/o Amersham Community Centre, Chiltern Avenue, Amersham HP6 5AH.
