The SCS, the GDPR and how we use your data

You must have heard about the General Data Protection Regulation by now. This is being introduced across the EU on Friday 25 May 2018 and we cannot ignore it.

Although we would like to be thinking about other things – aspects of the Salonika campaign for example – we have had to consider the GDPR and its implications for the Society. As a result you will find a new Privacy Policy on our website, which explains what personal data we hold and what we do with it. As you would expect, most of this relates to membership. We do not share any data with third parties (unless required to by law) and do not engage in marketing. The only purpose of our occasional email newsletter – The New Balkan News – is to share news about the Society and its activities, and material relating to the campaign with members and friends (who can unsubscribe at any time). This web site does not have ‘cookies’ collecting data.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
