3. Notification of change
The SLS does not provide notification when changing the content of pages on its web sites.
As you use this web site, you may be asked to provide personal information by entering it on a web page, and submitting it to the SLS by clicking a button or link (this includes discussion boards and membership application forms). Generally, this information will be requested to help us provide a service. However, whenever you enter such information on a web page, the Society has legal obligations to you about the ways in which it may use and store the data you provide.

5. Information We Gather
When you access a web page, information about your usage is automatically collected. This will usually include your operating system, browser, IP Address (a number, assigned to your computer to identify it on the network), the pages which you browse, the referring page that led you to the current page, your software and aspects of its configuration. This information is available to web service administrators. Some of this information is also automatically included in feedback e-mails sent from the SLS web site, but does not represent the passing of any additional information to us (and is used to help us resolve any technical issues related to your use of the site). You are not personally identifiable as an individual from such information alone. However, the SLS may be legally obliged to release this information to appropriate authorities.
7. Secure Payment Pages
The Society's online payments are processed by World Pay PLC, part of the Royal Bank of Scotland PLC group and PayPal. The World Pay server software encrypts information, ensuring that Internet transactions stay private and protected. Your name, address and credit card number - plus everything else about your payment - cannot be read by a third party as the information travels securely from your computer to the World Pay/PayPal servers. Indeed, the Society has no access to the information relating to your credit card which is seen only by World Pay and PayPal.
8. Accessibility/Web Standards
The SLS website has been designed for both accessibility and functionality.
