    I've been reading the Privacy Policy again (waiting for the kettle to boil).
    I don't recall giving permission to be contacted by any means other than email.

    From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone, fax or mail. We may use the information to customise the website according to your interests.


    Just saying..........

    I'm not a lawyer nor a data protection officer - so any opinion I give on this matter is just that - my opinion. Having said that - page 7 of Issue 2, 2018 of the Natioanl Allotment Society magazine is given over to GDPR - they suggest checking with the Regulator - www.ico.org.uk
    An association needs to consider/explain why its holding personal data, whose data its holding, what data its holding, where the data is being held and when (how long) its being held.
    My allotment site are going to send members a consent form that they will have to tick to agree and sign - informed consent sort of thing - and incorporate that into any new agreements. We also need to formalise what we do with the data once people leave etc...
    The final paragraph in the magazine is perhaps the most pertinent really - the security of the data and how its stored are likely to be the main (potentially) challenging issues. If your allotment site list is stolen and people get spammed or worse then your site association could be in trouble...
    ... hmmm
