We use your personal information when processing your application for membership and to ensure completeness and accuracy for administrative contact purposes.

The Society of The Astral Star will not disclose an affiliateıs real name, address, phone number(s), or other personal information, nor display their photo or likeness to any party outside of the Order or to the general public at large without their permission. Candidates for Membership, Order Members (Active and Inactive), and Honorary Members will be addressed and/or referred by their Order Mottoes in public forums or media, unless said address would cause undo attention to the affiliated person (such as on addressed envelopes containing correspondence by postal mail).

All personal information will be treated with respect, and will not be used for any purpose other than routine administrative purposes within the general Order. The Orderıs Contact list of itıs members and affiliates will NOT be distributed to third parties for circular mailings.

COMPUTER FILES & ON-LINE FORUMS:

The Order of The Astral Star and its Administrative Officers shall be required to keep computer files containing its members and affiliateıs personal information off-line, on removable media.

Furthermore, all on-line links of members shall be encoded in a format that will discourage computer system robots and spiders from collecting personal information about itıs members - within reasonable feasibility and technical capabilities of the Order.

If a Candidates for Membership, Order Member (Active and Inactive), or Honorary Member believes that the information we have about them is incorrect or if important information is missing, they have the right to request that we amend and/or update the existing information.
