A new Data Protection law came into force in May 2018. As part of this, we are required to explain to our members what personal data we hold, what we do with it, and their rights to access or change that data.
The Bishop’s Castle Civic Society stores and uses personal data given to us by members as part of their joining or membership renewal and to inform members about events and opportunities available to Civic Society members. This personal data includes only names and contact details, along with records of membership payments or other donations to the Society.
We do not share this data with any other organisations. Society members have the right to see what data we hold on them, and for any of that data to be corrected, or for historic data no longer required by law to be removed. All requests of this type should be sent to the Secretary who acts as the Data Controller for the Society
