New SHATPS Privacy Policy

 

From 25 May 2018 new regulations come in force how we have to collect and manage data and information about our members. SHATPS will be adopting these new regulations.

Many of our members are currently being asked by many companies and organisations to give a declaration of consent to the storage and processing of their personal data.

We ask for exactly the same declaration.

 

What we had to do:

- to adopt our privacy policy to the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)

- to add the privacy policy for our website

 

And what you as a SHATPS member have to do:

- as part of the changes, SHATPS will need you to confirm whether or not you accept the storage and processing of your data. You have received the SHATPS privacy policy and a declaration of consent by email. We therefore ask you to support us and to send us the declaration of consent that was sent to you in May 2018. We may no longer store your data without your declaration of consent and can then no longer offer our usual society service.

Please save us unnecessary and time-consuming reminders, because failure to implement the GDPR can result in penalties for the secretary and thus for the society.

  

You find the new SHATPS Privacy Policy here together with an online consent declaration for SHATPS members.

Tristan da Cunha - change of registration labels

 

Perhaps you wondered about Tristan da Cunha registered mail in the past weeks? No Tristan R-label but instead a GB R-label? What happened?

The Postmistress of the Trista da Cunha Post Office Iris Green told that the ISO-code "TA" has gone to "SH". Until this matter is sorted they are using U.K. labels.
