What is GDPR?
GDPR is an important change in government legislation regarding data protection and stands for The General Data Protection Regulation. It effectively provides an update to the Data Protection Act, bringing in new requirements and increasing the penalties for breaches. Any organisation that is required by law to comply with GDPR must do so by the 25th May 2018 at the latest. This law doesn’t only cover businesses, but sports clubs as well, since clubs, too, handle sensitive personal data their members trust them with.
GDPR Consent for Club Members
What do I need to do?
One of the key points in GDPR compliance is that "Active Consent" should be given to hold, manage and process personal information. All members who wish to register on the website will be required to give consent to this. If consent is not given then an account cannot be created. Consent can be withdrawn at any time, but if this is done then your account will be removed.

What if I don't do this?
If you haven't given consent by 25th May 2018, then your website account will be removed, and Bangor Swimming Club will be unable to furnish you with important news and updates relevant to club business.
Further updates will be sent out in regards to your general Club Membership and any actions that are required.
