This requires that anyone holding information about others on a computer either registers with the Registrar, which costs money, or complies with certain conditions. The Association intends to hold on computer the information requested on the Membership Application form.

The first condition is that you must be asked whether you object to this being done. The second condition is that the information may only be disclosed in limited circumstances, one of which is that you consent to the disclosure. At present, the only circumstances in which this might be considered is in order to publish a list of members for circulation to other members.
