On May 25th new regulation is coming into effect to make sure companies and charities are protecting their customers and members' information which they hold on databases. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is intended to protect us all from being exploited when we give organisations our personal data. The Civic Society has always had a policy for processing and protecting personal data but this is an opportunity to update our process and bring it in line with the new regulation.
If you are content with the information that we hold, how we process it and how we currently contact you then you do not need to do anything. Because of the civic society's position as a membership organisation we do not need you to grant consent for your information to be used and you do not need to reply or complete any forms.
