Data Protection

GDPR provides the legal framework that defines how personal information can be used. The Coble and Keelboat Society is fully committed to complying with the principles set out in GDPR and has a duty to protect any information we collect from you.

• Only information that we need is collected.

• Your personal information is only used for the purpose for which we collect it.

• Your personal information is only seen by those who need it to do their jobs.

• We will only disclose data when we have your consent, or where we are obliged to disclose personal data by law, or as expressly permitted under the GDPR (through contract; legal obligation, vital interests; public task; or legitimate interests).

• We will keep your information up to date. Inaccurate or misleading data will be corrected as soon as possible.

• Personal information is retained only for as long as it is required for the purpose collected; normally, this will be for a maximum of 6 years if we do not hear from you during this time.  Unless there is a legal requirement to do otherwise, at the six year point, we will take steps to remove your information from our records.

• Your information will be protected from unauthorised or accidental disclosure and processed in an appropriate manner to maintain its integrity and confidentiality.

• We will provide you with a copy of your personal information on request (please see below for information on access requests).

These principles apply whether we hold your information on paper or in electronic form.

You may ask us, or we may ask you, to rectify information you or we think is inaccurate, and you may also ask us to remove information which is inaccurate or complete information which is incomplete (‘right to rectification’).

If your personal details change, please help us to keep your information up to date by notifying us at the address below:
