The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into effect from 25 March 2018. There are no significant changes in the way the Club operates or deals with your personal information because of the GDPR; rather it is a new requirement in the GDPR that we must ask for and record your specific consent to these matters.
The Club has adopted a GDPR Policy, Members should read this Policy, which covers the data held and how it is used and shared with others.
You have previously provided the required personal information on joining the Club and are now being asked to agree that the Club may use your data as described, contacting you by post, e-mail and/or phone as outlined.

In addition, you are being asked to consent to the publication of your name, phone number(s) and E-mail address in the Club Members Contact Directory, which will be distributed to Club members only.

Within the Club, members’ data is shared only with team captains for team and match considerations.
