FSC Websites:

Field Studies Council is committed to the privacy and security of supporters and visitors to our websites. You can use most of the features of this site without disclosing any personal information. However, use of some features such as registering an online account, e-commerce activity (e.g. booking courses or purchasing FSC publications), or completing one of our enquiry forms, ask you to provide some personal information (e.g. name and address, e-mail address, credit or debit card details). By registering an online account, placing an order, or making an enquiry, you consent to the collection, use and transfer of your information under the terms of this policy. Whenever you provide personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy, current UK Data Protection legislation and Internet best practice.

Security of online payments:

Field Studies Council uses a PCI Level 1 service provider to handle online payments on its behalf, which utilises AES-256 encryption of card numbers. This level of compliance and security is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. By using trusted and class-leading payments services this removes the need for Field Studies Council to store debit/credit card numbers on any of its systems.
