Who we are and what we do
The Fulham Society is a registered charity in England and Wales (Charity No. 262396). Our website is www.fulhamsociety.org. Our purpose is to promote high standards of planning and architecture, and to secure the protection and improvement of matters of historic or public interest in the Fulham area. Our members help us to achieve this by paying an annual subscription which we use to further our purpose.
The personal data we hold and how we collect it
We collect personal data when a new member completes the information on the membership form. This includes the member’s name, address, phone number and email address and payment details including any gift aid declaration. If during membership a member tells us of any changes, we will hold the new details in place of the old ones.
We hold members’ personal data for the following purposes:
- to keep a record of our members’ subscriptions paid and other donations;
- to claim gift aid on subscriptions and donations;
- to send our regular newsletter to each member (either by post or email);
- to inform members about campaigns and other activities, events and matters of interest; and
- to be able to check that our records are up to date.
We do not share information with other members (other than the Executive Committee), other charities or businesses.
