THE NSRA AND THE GDPR
As you are aware there are new regulations coming into place with regard to data protection.
From 25th May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulations come into force, replacing the 1998 Data Protection Act. It expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal data is collected and processed.
The National Street Rod Association takes the security of all personal data seriously and we are in the process of writing GDRP Policy which will inform Members how their personal data is used and stored.
Your data is kept securely and is only shared with third parties which have direct link with your Membership. Newnorth Print Limited, who print and distribute the Street Gasser, Classicline Insurance who administer the NSRA Insurance Scheme and our Web Master who controls the Membership sections of the NSRA Website and Forum. The other individuals who have access to your information is the NSRA Committee. Full details will be incorporated in the NSRA GDPR Policy.
Members joining after 25th May will be asked to ‘opt in’ to being contacted by the NSRA and to receive communications from the NSRA. e.g. The Street Gasser. There is some argument that by being a Member you have already ‘opted in’, but others argue this a ‘soft opt in’. The NSRA, therefore, feels we should give all current Members all the options.
The next Street Gasser will include more information.
You can opt in on-line at http://www.nsra.org.uk/gdpr/
Please do not ignore this as unlike the consent type emails that you can chose to accept or ignore them, unfortunately, your club MUST get a response from you or you may risk losing the services you have paid us to deliver which includes continuing to deliver your magazine and other greats ervices.
