On 25th May 2018, a new data protection law, the General Data Protection Regulation, came into force with the intention of strengthening data protection for all individuals. Under this legislation, organisations such as Cockermouth & District Civic Trust have to comply with strict requirements on what we do with personal data.
Member’s personal data that we hold is name, address, telephone number, email address and class of membership. This is information that we hold purely for membership administration and circulation of relevant information concerning the Trust. We do not share this information with any third party.
The master membership list is held securely and administered by the Secretary, who copies the list to the Chairman, Treasurer and Membership Secretary when necessary. All of these are Trustees of the Trust. Only details of current members are held and if membership is not renewed these details are erased from the record.
