The General Data Protection Regulation GDPR
(GDPR) Stands for General Data Protection Regulation, which came into effect on 25 May 2018. GDPR sets out legal guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information. All organisations (including sports clubs) need to be compliant as it replaces the Data Protection Act 1998.
As a club we have been working with BIS and with resources supplied by Sports England and the Sports and Recreation Alliance to update all our policies and privacy statements
(which we recommend all our members read or know where to find on our site).
The Privacy document is designed to give you an overview of how we comply with GDPR, but it is not exhaustive.
Finer details can be found in our club policies which are located in the W.I.S.C Handbook or on our website in the documents section.
As a club affiliated to BIS we legally have to keep everyone’s details kept on record to comply with insurance and governance. However, with the new GDPR laws this now limits what we can do with your personal data. We can still contact you when we need to fulfil something legally, or if we are providing a service, but for anything else we now need your consent regarding what we do with your data. For example, joining our clubs mailing list. Our Newsletter is one of our key ways of keeping you, our members, updated.
In order to be able to keep in contact with you and provided you with other great services, like a secure platform to buy photographs from competitions, we need your positive consent.
We really need your help, the club can no longer do what it used to do unless we have your consent. Please fill in the online membership form carefully and ensure you read all of the options carefully so we can continue to offer the best service to you as a memeber.
