THE CYPRUS THIRD AGE, hereinafter referred to as the «C3A», treats your privacy seriously. This privacy policy sets out how we will deal with your ‘personal information’, i.e. information that could identify or is related to the identity of an individual.

How long do we keep your personal information?

We keep your information while you remain a member of the C3A. Once you leave the C3A any personal information the C3A has on file about you will be deleted.

How your information can be updated or corrected?

To ensure the information we hold is accurate and up to date, members need to inform the C3A of any changes to their personal information. You can do this by contacting the Membership Secretary by email or by clicking the link at the foot of any C3A email to the on-line form.

How do we store your personal information?
