GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR) 2018

 

In May 2018 significant changes to the Data Protection law will be introduced.  These changes mean that the Society will have responsibilities to safeguard your personal data i.e. your name, address, title, e-mail address and telephone number. The data we hold which is physical (completed paper membership applications) is kept securely at the home of the Membership Secretary.  Digital data (your name, address, e-mail address and telephone number (where provided) are also securely held by the Membership Secretary, with a back up copy held by the Secretary.

 

Your relationship with us: data protection

 

 There is a contractual relationship between you and the Exeter Local History Society whereby you pay your membership subscription to receive membership benefits.  We commit that:

 

  • We will not share your details with any third party for marketing purposes. 
  • We will only use your data to manage your membership and advise you of events and visits. We will not use this data for any other purpose.
  • We only hold personal data that you provided in your membership application or have subsequently updated.
  • Our privacy policy is displayed on our website where can also be seen an assurance that bookings via Eventbrite are fully covered by their own data protection policies.

Your relationship with us: communication preferences

 

 We use the personal information that you have provided to communicate with you about your membership.   For example:

 

  • The Newsletter and other relevant messages e.g. news about talks and events, are sent out by e-mail or, in some cases, by post. 
  •  
  • Reminders about subscription renewal will also normally be sent out by e-mail, and by post to those without e-mail.

 

The legislation requires the Society to identify a Data Controller who determines the needs and means for processing personal data (in any format) and a Data Processor who processes data on behalf of the Data Controller.  These responsibilities will be fulfilled by the Membership Secretary (Data Controller) and the Secretary (Data Processor).

 

The legislation also introduces a number of individual rights such as:

 

  • To enquire what data we hold and its accuracy
  • To be informed of any data security breach; and
  • The right to erase your data if your membership ceases.

 

You can ask about the data we hold on you, or change your preferred communication methods, at any time by contacting the Membership Secretary.
