If you become a member, we will consult you about the use of your information to keep you informed about LCF activities by, for instance, receiving our LCF magazine and/or journal and by receiving periodic emails from us providing you with updates of LCF activities and information about other events/issues we consider may be of interest to you. Additionally, if at any time you wish us to stop using your information for any or all of the above purposes, please let us know. We will stop the use of your information for such purposes as soon as it is reasonably possible to do so.
Please note that we also track the effectiveness of our email campaigns through email marketing services (for example MailChimp) and may use this information for further communications
