The Burma Star Association (BSA or Association), as data controller, will hold certain information on you in relation to your contributions to the Association’s journal ‘Dekho!’. This document sets out how and on what grounds we will process that personal data and for how long we will retain it.

Any correspondence received for Dekho! is used according to the contents of the letter. That is, if the correspondent wishes to contact someone via Dekho! and expressly asks for their personal information to be listed in the Journal for this purpose, this will be done. No-one’s personal information is put into the Journal without their knowledge. The Administrator is responsible for processing this information. Electronic correspondence is kept in specific folders on the Editor’s PC and backed up at regular intervals. Paper requests for entry in DEKHO! are in a locked fire-proof cabinet. Once entered into DEKHO! paper items are returned to the individual who submitted the article or, following their permission, they are sent to the Burma Star Memorial Library at The School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in Russell Square, London or securely destroyed.   


Other than where we have stated the need for consent, we shall process this information on the basis of our legitimate interest of the fulfilment of the purpose of your request. We will not share any of your personal data with anyone else, other than as stated above and we will not use your personal data in other way, other than stated above and we will not pass it outside the EEA, without your consent.
