Members & Subscribers
Third Parties

How we store your information

For all data stored, we will remove this in line with our Data Retention Policy, or sooner where a relevant subject request is made.

Our membership roll is stored on a password protected and encrypted spreadsheet document, accessible via a PC only by the Membership Secretary.

Your information will normally be stored on our third-party servers. These include (but are not limited to):

Some of these servers are based in the United States, but all are compliant under the EU-US Privacy Shield and we have entered into data processing agreements with them.

Mailing List (MailChimp)

We keep your name and email address in our mailing list, stored on Mailchimp, for as long as you wish to remain in our mailing list. We will then securely dispose of your information by removing your name and email address from our mailing list.


For members, your name provided to register with our third-party servers is publicly available to view by other members of Oor Vyce. You can remove this, and any other personal data from our third-party servers by contacting them directly or deleting your account.

Zoom recordings

We keep any audio and video recordings of meetings until the recording can be transcribed into minutes of meetings by our Secretary. We will then securely destroy all recordings within one month of the meeting.

Doodle poll

You may optionally add your name to any polling conducted via DoodlePoll, which is publicly viewable to other voters in the poll. We will securely destroy all data, including any names affixed to votes, within one month of the poll’s closing.

Google Analytics & Tag Manager

We use Google Analytics and Tag Manager to help us to improve our website (www.oorvyce.scot) by collecting and reporting information on how people use it. 'Cookies’ collect information in a way that does not directly identify anyone to Oor Vyce. The information collected is stored by Google. You can find Google’s privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en_UK.

Cookie Script

We use 'Cookie Script' software to allow users to control the information that cookies collected when using our website (www.oorvyce.scot). In using this tool 'Cookie Script' may access user’s server log information and other online identifiers but this information does not personally identify anyone to 'Cookie Script' or Oor Vyce.


Membership Register

For members, we keep a record of your name, email address, postal address and date of birth for secure storage in our Membership Register. The membership register is stored on our Mailchimp. Once a member leaves the association, their personal information will be removed. You can leave the association by contacting membership@oorvyce.scot.
