High Desert Amateur Radio Club of New Mexico Incorporated (HDARC), Privacy Policy


We are providing details about the information we collect and how we use that information. We are also explaining your choices and the control you have over your information.


What information do we collect?

The HDARC maintains a database of members, current and past. Information stored in the database is the same as the information requested on our membership form. We also include the date, amount, and payment method of the last membership payment.

Why do we retain this information?

We retain this information to understand the demographics of the HDARC's membership, to allow us to communicate HDARC business to the membership, and to provide services that come with membership.

We generally do not delete member data when membership expires. This makes renewal at a later date easier and allows us to continue to send past members information about the HDARC (e.g. trips announcements).

Requests for copies of stored data, verification of data in our database, updating or deletion of data, or any other matter associated with membership data can be directed to the HDARC


Do we share Information?

We do not share information directly with any third party except as noted below:

  • The HDARC uses a mail list service in Gmail to distribute newsletters and other official Club business. We provide email address to Gmail for mailings. Requests for removal can also be made to the HDARC.

  • The High Desert ARC Inc uses PayPal to process online membership payments and donations. The HDARC maintains data provided on the membership form filled out prior to checkout but transfers control to PayPal during the check-out process. The HDARC does not have access to or store any financial information on any of our servers. PayPal’s privacy policy can be viewed at
