Keeping in touch - you are in control

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) limits our ability to stay in touch with you electronically. By law you must now give us your clear, unambiguous consent before we can email you anything outside of your annual membership renewal notices.

This is our promise to you:

We will not share your data with other organisations without your clear consent and we will not intrude on your privacy by telephoning or texting you, unless you ask us to do so

We do not employ external fundraising agencies, all British Ecological Society (BES) fundraising is conducted in-house and no member of BES staff receives commission on funds raised.

We take your privacy very seriously. For more information on how we will process your personal data, please read our Privacy Notice.
