RoADAR North Cumbria & South West Scotland takes the protection of your privacy very seriously.
When you join the North Cumbria & South West Scotland Group or renew your membership we collect the following information:
- Email address
- Mobile and landline telephone numbers
- RoSPA Membership number, test date and grade (where applicable)
- A record of your training progress
We require this information for the following reasons:
- Administration of the North Cumbria & South West Scotland Group
- Communication to members to inform you about Group events, meetings and other items that may be of interest to members
- To facilitate membership renewals
When undergoing formal tuition with the Group a record of your training progress is maintained by your allocated tutor. This information will only ever be shared with you, the Group Training Officer or another tutor in the event an Associate is reallocated to another tutor, or in advance of a “check ride”.
We do not share your information with third parties other than with RoSPA HQ when required. Notification to HQ is necessary for formal approval by HQ and the issue of the tutor certificate.
You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you would like a copy of the information held on you please email the Group Secretary. If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please contact us as soon as possible. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure.
The data is held on a central membership database which is stored on cloud storage to which only Committee members have access to facilitate the smooth and efficient running of the Group. Paper copies of any membership forms are retained by the Membership Secretary.
