Nailsea NHW General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Policy

Enforcement of this regulation becomes effective in the UK from the 25th May 2018. In order to comply we have produced a Privacy Policy statement (see below).

Coordinators do not need to take retrospective action because the data would have been supplied by their scheme members and audited from the September 2017 subscription payment slips. However, they do need to be aware that the personal data they hold must be accurate, secure, confidential and held only as long as is necessary.

The data will be audited via the Subscription Slip in the Newsletter. If a slip is not returned by December of that year the Coordinator must delete the member's data.

New members will be asked to complete a return (either provided by Police Administrator or the Nailsea Schemes Administrator) giving permission to use their data in accordance with Nailsea NHW Privacy Policy statement.

For further information regarding the National NHW GDPR policy and documentation refer to the Ourwatch links: GPDR Guidance and for the detailed document see this link: Data Protection Guidance 12.04.18
