I don't recall ever having to give my address when signing up to any other
societies. If the SU needs it, they have our names and student numbers and
can get addresses from the Uni. If we haven't needed a user's address
much, if at all, and the SU don't need them from us, then do we need to
take it?

I like the sound of having the visibility of 2 and 3 being controlled
though :)
