The RSOC have a large paid membership and an even larger following of RS enthusiasts.
For some time now we have been using a facility which lets us email, pretty simply, both groups of people to share events, offers or useful information.
There are currently over 6,000 people on this mailing list and on average we have been sending one email every 6 weeks so not the usual spam you might receive and at the bottom of each email there is the simple (and mandatory) "unsubscribe me" button.
So what has changed?
From 25th May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires companies/clubs like us to ensure we have EXPLICIT permission to email people.
So, in preparation for these changes we are going to DELETE all current members of the mailing list and start a programme of work to allow people to sign back up if they EXPLICITLY agree to do so.
So there we have it, we'd love to have you sign up but equally we understand if you dont want to.
