Privacy - How do we use your information?

Here at the British Association of Christians in Psychology (BACIP) we take your privacy seriously and will only use your personal information to administer your membership and website account and to provide the products and services you have requested from us, for example regarding conferences you have booked to attend.


Part of membership includes the option to be a member of the BACIP e-groups through which we communicate news, discussions and requests for help or information. If you wish, the administrator will send you an invitation (electronic link) to join, but then you can maintain your own account, select your email notification preferences, and unsubscribe if you wish. You can also ask the administrator to unsubscribe you or change your settings.


Normally twice a year we send out a newsletter to the membership, by email using Mailchimp as a platform. We also send out other occasional emails to the members who are not on the e-group, for example advertising our events or important information about BACIP or their membership.


We will not share your information with any third party without your permission, for example, relating to requests for help on the Yahoo group message board. For further information on how your information is used, how we maintain the security of your information, and your rights to access information we hold on you, please contact BACIP's part-time administrator:
