Singer Motor Club Data Protection Statement
The club currently collects and stores data relating to its members and their vehicles, and to others to whom it sends complimentary magazines etc. The data is collected electronically, or in paper form, and is collated onto a master data base. The following information is recorded, where applicable:
Name - Address - Telephone number(s) - Email address(es) - Vehicle Details, including Registration Number, Chassis Number, Engine Number, Year of Registration, plus any special details given, such as historical facts about a particular vehicle etc.
The details are stored in an electronic data base. This is made available to SMC Committee Members and Area Representatives for the purpose of enabling communication with the membership and carrying out the objects of the Club, as set out in the Club Rules. Details from the data base are not communicated to other persons, or organisations, without the consent of the individual concerned. Members may at any time request a copy of the data held on themselves and their vehicle(s), or that their data be removed or amended.
Data relating to club officials is printed in the club magazine (effectively in the public domain) to enable communication between the officials and the membership.
Details of members and ex-members and their vehicles are held indefinitely for the sole purpose of facilitating historical research. Individuals have the option to have their details deleted permanently should they decide to leave the club.
Bulletins are sent to members via email on a routine basis. The standard wording at the foot of the email gives an option for any member to unsubscribe.
You will see on the Membership Application Form that in accordance with the requirements of the new Data Protection Regulations, you are required to sign that you consent to your data being collected and managed in accordance with the SMC Data Statementas detailed above, and that you agree to your contact details being used by the club to send you communications.

Apr-May & RENEW
Rest of the World:
If you have just joined SMC we wish you a warm welcome to the Club. Your ‘New Member Welcome Pack’ will be in the post to you within the next few days.
If you have just renewed your membership - Thank you. Your new Membership Card will be sent with your next Mascot magazine.
As you may already be aware, the George Singer Memorial Fund (GSMF) was founded by ASCO in 2014 to support students at the Kingston Maurward College, where George Singer was born in 1847 when his father was Farm Bailiff on the Kingston Maurward Estate in Dorset. If you wish to make a contribution to this Fund, please add this to the amount of your membership subscription and it will be chanelled to this very worthwhile fund, helping to strengthen the link between the College and the Singer marque.
The SubscriptionRates are:
Note 1: Renewals are due annually on 1st April at the April-May Rates. *To save those joining between December and March having to Renew after such a short time, a renewal for the following year has been included in the Dec/Jan & Feb/Mar rates.
For new members, reducing rates are quoted depending on the Month in which you are joining. This is so your Subscription payment takes you up to the 1st April renewal date.
Note 3: As a result of investigating problems encountered by some members seeking to use their Credit Card within the PayPal Option, we have been informed that some overseas countries impose a limit on the number of times the ‘Pay as a Guest’ facility may be used, and require that you set up a personal PayPal account. If this happens when you try to use the facility, we would ask that to avoid having to try and make alternative arrangements to pay your subs, you do set up your own PayPal account. You can link this to your Credit Card so you still have only the one account to settle. You may also find it very useful to have this account to pay for any Spares or items of Club Regalia you may wish to purchase from the SMC.
