Privacy statement

The APC uses  a secure web based system called Webcollect to administrate our membership sign-up and renewal process.  

This has many benefits for our members, not least of all the option to pay by card, as well as a quicker, smoother sign-up and of course the ability for you to access your own data at any time to update your own change of address or phone number etc. The system will even send you an automatic email when it’s time to renew your subscription!
