On 25th May 2018 the GDPR, new data protection legislation within the European Union, will come into force. The GDPR is a substantial piece of legislation designed to protect the right of people to privacy in the internet age when information about them is being collected and processed. It applies to all personal data held by the allotment society in any form; this means that it covers paper records as well as electronic ones.
Tenants’ contact details, allotment history and other information relevant to their tenancy and membership of the Society will be stored by the Society and may be kept on computer and/or on paper. This information will be used only for the management and administration of the Society and the site and will not be disclosed to third parties unless the Society is required to do so by law or in compliance with legal obligations. The Tenant may inspect the information held by the Society about him or her on request.
