Data Protection law is changing and we want to keep you up to date with the steps Wharfedale RUFC is taking.
The European Union has taken a monumental step in protecting the fundamental right to privacy for every EU resident with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will be effective from 25th May, 2018 (replacing the Data protection Act).
Simply put, EU residents will now have greater say over what, how, why, where and when their personal data is used, processed or disposed. This rule clarifies how the EU personal data laws apply even beyond the borders of the EU. Any organisation that works with EU residents’ personal data in any manner, irrespective of location, has obligations to protect the data. Wharfedale RUFC is aware of its role in providing protection of its members’ personal information and meeting their GDPR mandates.
Wharfedale has always honoured our members’ right to data privacy and protection. Wharfedale RUFC does not carry out systematic and extensive processing activities, large scale processing of special categories of data including genetic or biometric data. This means that we have no necessity to collect and process members’ personal information beyond what is required for the functioning of our Club.
