General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Yes, we knew you’d be scrolling straight to this item (!)…..
In May 2018, the new EU-wide General Data Protection Regulation comes into force. In effect, this replaces current Data Protection legislation and provides for stronger protections regarding personal and sensitive data.
As an organisation that holds membership details, we need to ensure that we are compliant with the GDPR.
Over the next couple of weeks, you will receive an email from us asking you to confirm that you still wish to receive communications from us and that you consent to us holding your data. Please do look out for this email and do reply to it. If you don’t reply and/or give your consent you will no longer receive communications from us.
The GDPR also makes provision for you to have access to the data we hold on you and/or to have this data deleted (obviously, if you ask for the data to be deleted this will in effect mean you are no longer a member).
Look out for the email in the next few days!
