You may have heard or read about the new “GDPR” (General Data Protection Regulation) that comes into force on May 25th, 2018. The GDPR gives individuals more control over how their data is used and places certain obligations on organisations such as the Club that process the personal information of those individuals.
The Club values your privacy and the personal information you entrust to us. We also take our Data Protection obligations seriously and we have therefore been reviewing our policies and procedures in readiness for the new regulations. We have been lucky to have been able to enlist Club member Fraser Levey, a senior Cyber Security / Data Privacy Specialist who helps large public-sector organisations meet their GDPR responsibilities, to advise us in this area.
The Club will contact members in the coming weeks to explain more about our obligations and what we are doing to fulfil them. We will also ask members to read our updated policies and check that we have the required consent to continue to process your information.
