If you join Ariel Club, through our shop, we keep your name and email address on our database as long as your subscription remains paid. This is so that we can determine if you are eligible to attend member-only events and it allows us to confirm with insurers or retailers that you are a genuine club member.

If you join the Ariel Club forum, as a paid-up club member or non-member, we will send you the occasional email to let you know about upcoming Ariel Club events. Please contact us if you do not want to receive those emails.
