“Opportunities in Retirement Ayr”, is a Registered Charity No. SC005639. Our aim is to provide opportunities for any person over 50 years of age to become a member and advance their education, improve their health, and enjoy increased recreational opportunities.
The information which we hold is that which you supply on your application form. We collect your name, address, telephone, and email address if you have one.
We use your information to manage your membership and to send you communications, such as details of talks and events.
We review our retention periods for personal information every two years. We are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations (for example the collection of Gift Aid requires we retain your signed agreement for six years). We will not sell or rent your information to third parties.
We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purpose.
Should you wish us to erase your contact details, just let us know. However, unless otherwise asked, we do retain this information for statistical purposes, even if membership ceases, as it is valuable for us to know how many past members rejoin OiR Ayr, and the date of their previous membership.

When you give us personal information, it is stored on a database on a computer which is password-protected, and additional hardcopies are kept in a safe location.
