Devon Dowsers is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. We request the minimum of personal information from members, so that Council can communicate effectively with you about our legitimate business. For example, we would like to inform you about any dowsing related matters that we think might be of interest to you; to ask for your help to put on events or to thank you for any help you have given; to promote Courses, Workshops and dowsing events; to respond to enquiries and complaints; and to give notice of AGMs.
Privacy and Security
It is our legal duty to keep your personal information private and secure. If you have subscribed to receive regular postings via the Devon Dowsers website, you do so in the knowledge that the website is GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) secure. The Devon Dowsers Secretary and Membership Secretary will hold your personal information on a Devon Dowsers database which is password protected. It will be accessible to Council members in order for them to provide you with a service as a member of Devon Dowsers.
