Personal Data

In accordance with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the Data Protection Act 1998, there is a necessity for the club to obtain, store and process certain personal, confidential information about you which will include your name, address, email address and telephone number. This will be used for administration purposes and will not be passed to 3rd parties for marketing purposes.

This data will be stored on secure, password protected devices and shared on secure networks. The club committee will have full access to this data.

In addition to committee members, regional representatives and several volunteer members, (assisting the committee) will have access to some or all personal information.

Our assurance to you is that your data will not be shared or sold to any third party and will only be kept for as long you remain a member and for up to 24 months afterwards.

Mobile cameras used to record ride-outs and Curvy events.

In accordance with GDPR, photographs and mobile video recordings (go-pro or similar devices) of individuals are classed as personal data and must be treated in accordance with The Data Protection Act 1998.

If mobile cameras are being used to film ride-outs or Curvy events, you must ensure each member is aware they are being filmed and that there are no objections. The footage can be shared amongst members on closed groups. However, if these images are intended for public viewing such as, but not restricted to, open Facebook/youTube pages, you must respect the privacy of members at all times. Personal data in this situation would include both registration plates and personal images.

To clarify:

An image placed onto our Club private closed group is acceptable. As soon as this image is placed outside this medium, for example, copied to our main page, (and therefore twitter), it becomes an issue of data processing, and due processes must adhered to. Any members wishing to share images onto their own pages must obtain permission prior to sharing, to comply with the new Regulations.

It would be essential for members to discuss this issue prior to ride outs/social events, or on a regular basis, as permission is neither inferred by omission, or granted retrospectively.

Anybody captured that are not attendees of the event must have their identities (including vehicle registration marks) obscured.

Please contact any committee member for clarification. The committee will not be responsible for any breach of GDPR.
