Disclosures of Personal Information
Security of Personal Information Collected via the Websites
the Royal Aeronautical Society has implemented reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of personal information that the Royal Aeronautical Society stores and controls. However, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We will post a reasonably prominent notice to the Websites if any such security breach occurs. All websites, including www.aerosociety.com have security risks in addition to those described above. Among other things, websites can be vulnerable to DNS attacks, and using any website requiring registration may increase the risk of phishing. See Internet privacy on Wikipedia.
