Some of you will be aware that there is new legislation on the horizon - GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
In summary, GDPR is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. When GDPR takes effect on 25 May 2018, it will replace the 1995 Data Protection Directive.
Everyone on our database has subscribed at some point but I'm writing to confirm the following points:
• The only data we hold is a subscriber's address,DOB, email address and phone numbers
• We only ever use the database to send out news and events and important information by email or BSC.SQUASH text message for important news or an action request.
• We never use this database for any other purpose, and we never supply any of the data we hold to third party organisations.
