General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) – Your Action is Required

 In Notices

As a Club, we will have to be compliant with the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that come into force from the 25 May 2018.  Not heard of it?

Well in the UK, GDPR will replace the Data Protection Act 1998. GDPR seeks to give people more control over how organisations use their data, and introduced hefty penalties for organisations that fail to comply with the rules. It also ensures data protection law is almost identical across the EU and will remain in force after we leave the EU.

So what does the Club need to do?

There are a number of things we are in the process of putting into place in regard to your membership which will require your action very soon, so watch this space.  One of the first steps was having to amend our Data Privacy Policy, which now explains what we require, why, how it is used, your rights etc.  We will now require you to agree to it and give your consent for us to hold various bits of personal data that you have provided.

Where can I find a copy of our Data Privacy Policy?

You can either download a pdf copy from here – Link or read online here – Link

How do I agree and give my consent?

After this News Post was sent to you by email, all online subscribers will have their status reset.  We will then send out an email to you in which you will be required to click on the confirmation link.  By doing so, you are confirming your name, email address, accepting the Data Privacy Policy and also giving your consent for your data to be held for the purpose of receiving email notifications from us.  We will see that you have confirmed this and we will record the date and time to be able to show we have complied with this part of GDPR.

You will then receive one further email just to confirm it was successful and you will then be back up and running to receive all future New Post notifications.  You can unsubscribe at any time, but don’t blame us when you miss out on some important.

Thanks for your time in reading this and sorry if it causes any inconvenience, but its to protect your data so its important.
