General Data Protection Regulations


Our organisation holds personal detail records of our members for use by the Association.  These records are held on paper and in electronic form.  The holding of electronic records is covered by the new General Data Protection Regulations 2018.

Record management

An electronic membership record is created for each new member and held on Database owned by the Treasurer. Records are deleted by the Treasurer under instruction from the Registrar who keeps the master paper based membership list.

Records for drivers and helpers, and trip attendees are held by the individuals listed above.  These records are managed by the appropriate Manager and are essentially transient.

In order to participate in any event or activity a person must be a member and be recorded by the Registrar.  Any person may require their name to be removed from the Association’s database by instructing the Registrar, however such instruction will consequently terminate their membership.
