Privacy Policy

Hebden Bridge Camera Club (hereafter ‘the Club) treats your privacy rights seriously. This privacy policy sets out how we will deal with your ‘personal information’, that is, information that could identify, or is related to the identity of, an individual.

WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

When you express an interest in becoming a member of the Club you will be asked to provide certain information. This includes:

  • Name.
  • Home address.
  • Email address.
  • Telephone number.

HOW DO WE COLLECT THIS PERSONAL INFORMATION?

All the information collected is obtained directly from you. This is usually at the point of your initial registration. The information will be collected via membership forms or online contact forms. At the point that you provide your personal information for membership purposes, we will also request that you provide consent for us to store and use your data. Your consent is required in order to ensure our compliance with data protection legislation.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

We use your personal information:

  • To provide our Club activities and services to you.
  • For administration, planning and management of our Club.
  • Sending you details about other organisations/events which may be of interest
  • To monitor, develop and improve the provision of our Club activities.

     

We’ll send you messages by email, other digital methods, telephone and post to advise you of Club activities.

WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH?

We may disclose information about you, including your personal information:

  • Internally – to committee members and other members – as required to facilitate your participation in our Club activities.
  • Externally – where we use an external system and with your consent for entries to external competitions. Where such systems are used, the committee has scrutinised the Terms and Conditions of each supplier and judged that their digital and physical systems and procedures are secure.
  • If we have a statutory duty to disclose it for other legal and regulatory reasons.

Where we need to share your information outside of the Club we will seek your permission and inform you as to who the information will be shared with and for what purpose.

HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

We need to keep your information so that we can provide our services to you. In most instances information about your membership will not be stored for longer than 12 months after you cease to be a member. The exceptions to this are instances where there may be financial, legal or insurance circumstances that require information to be held for longer.

HOW YOUR INFORMATION CAN BE UPDATED OR CORRECTED

To ensure the information we hold is accurate and up to date, members need to inform the Club as to any changes to their personal information. You can do this by contacting the membership secretary at any time: Email: secretary@hebdenbridgecameraclub.co.uk

Policy review date: May 2018

 

On an annual basis you will have the opportunity to update your information, as required, via the membership renewal process. Should you wish to view the information that the Club holds on you, you can make this request by contacting the membership secretary – as detailed above. There may be certain circumstances where we are not able to comply with this request. This would include where the information may contain references to other individuals or for legal, investigative or security reasons. Otherwise we will usually respond within 14 days of the request being made.

HOW DO WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

We have in place a range of security safeguards to protect your personal information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification.

Your membership information is currently held on a spreadsheet and accessed by committee members.

AVAILABILITY AND CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

This policy is available on the Hebden Bridge Camera Club website. This policy may change from time to time. If we make any material changes we will make members aware of this via the e-mail, post and regular Club meetings.
