Privacy and Data Protection Statement

Barnet & District Angling Club (BADAC) is a privacy conscious organisation and is strongly committed to its member’s right to privacy.

How does the Data Protection Act affect the records kept by BADAC?

The Data Protection Act states that those who record and process personal information must be open about how the information is used and must follow the eight principles of ‘good information handling’. These principles state that data must be:

• Fairly and lawfully processed.

• Processed for limited purposes.

• Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary

• Accurate and where necessary up to date

• Not kept in a way that people can be identified from it for longer than is necessary.

• Processed in a way that ensures appropriate security.

• Not transferred to countries without adequate protection.

By law, organizations have to keep to these principles. If you believe in any way that BADAC is not processing your personal data in accordance with these principles, please contact the BADAC Secretary.

How does BADAC collect data?

BADAC collects personal data through application forms, renewal forms, and occasionally via email or telephone. All personally identifiable information provided to BADAC is processed in accordance with the principles of the Data Protection Act 2018.

Is information passed to third parties?

BADAC will only disclose information to third parties if explicitly required to do so by UK law. BADAC will obtain your consent before passing on any information to any third parties. BADAC does not collect or compile personally identifying information for dissemination or sale to external parties for marketing purposes

Who is allowed to see my information?

All records held by BADAC will only be made visible to active BADAC committee members with a need for that information.
