What Do We Use Your Data For?
We use your personal data for the following purposes:

The personal data that you provide when registering with Recoil Scotland is retained until you ask us to delete it. All personally identifying information is deleted immediately on your request.  In the event that you notify us that you no longer wish to be a member of our organisation or have services provided by us we will look to remove any personal data held.  There may be a requirement to retain some information in regard to your membership of our organisation for official purposes only.
