PRIVACY NOTICE (GDPR)

Please note that by subscribing to and paying the North Wales Sheep Dog Society you are consenting to our following Privacy Notice (policy).

Please read the Notice in full and contact us if you have any questions.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from 25th May 2018 gives you control over how your data is used and how you are contacted. It also better protects your personal data.

GDPR is all about giving you more control over how your personal data, held by the Society, is used. This means you can have greater confidence that information about you is accurate, up to date, properly managed and better protected.

How we use your personal information

The Society is a membership organisation registered with and regulated by the Charity Commission (registration number 508432). This Privacy Notice is to let you know how the Society promises to look after your personal information. This includes what you tell us about yourself i.e. what we learn by having you as a member. This Notice explains how we do this, how we use this information and tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.

Privacy Promise

The Society promises:

  • To keep your data safe and private.
  • Not to share or sell your personal data to third parties (only personal contact details are processed and stored).
  • To use your personal data only to deliver its services to members.
  • To respect your privacy and ensure it meets the strict regulatory requirements.

Data Controller (‘Data Protection Officer’)

The Society’s Chairperson (through the Secretary and Treasurer) is responsible for all the personal information obtained and processed.

Contact details and a contact form are available https://www.northwalessheepdogsociety.org.uk/contact-us/

 

How the law protects you

As well as our Privacy Promise, your privacy is protected by law. This section explains how that works.

Data Protection law says that the Society is only allowed to use personal information if we have a proper reason to do so. The law says we must have one or more of the following reasons:

  • To fulfil a contract we have with you e.g. rights of membership
  • When it is our legal duty e.g. to register Trustee’s details with the Charity Commission.
  • When it is in our legitimate interest e.g. to conduct the business of the Society including producing a members annual diary of sheepdog trials, organising sheep dog trials, publishing trials results and conducting business meetings – Trustees Management Committee and Annual General Meeting).
  • When you consent to it i.e. as necessary.

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. But even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you. If we rely on our legitimate interest, we will tell you what that is.

We list all the ways that we may use your personal information and which of the reasons we rely on to do so. We also tell you what our legitimate interests are as follows.
