A new Regulation comes into force from 25th May 2018 regarding the use and secure storage of Personal Data. This is an update of the previous Data Protection Act and requires even small charities such as the Friends of Box Hill (FOBH) to show that we handle information about you correctly. The new regulation is called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We also need your consent to send you data electronically, under the Privacy & Electronic Communication Regulations (PECR).
In order to comply with these regulations we are required to send all members a letter which includes a statement of our policy and also a consent form to be returned in a stamped, addressed envelope. Please take some time to read this and complete and return the consent form – without this we may not be able to contact you in the future and your continued support is vital to us!
A copy of our policy can also be found here – FOBH Data Privacy Notice.
