Personal data Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data.  Identification can be by the data alone or in conjunction with any other data in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession. The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Brief introduction to the General Data Protection Regulation All organisations that hold personal data must do so in accordance with the principles of data protection, which provide that personal data must be:

š  processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner;

š  collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes;

š  adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which it is used;

š  accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date;

š  kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data is processed;

š  kept securely.

Use of personal data H&DAA uses personal data for the following purposes:

š  To provide a membership service.

š  To keep accounting records.

š  To forward accounting records to the club’s auditor annually.

š  To inform you of your obligations.

Policy statement H&DAA will:

š  comply with both the law and good practice;

š  respect individuals’ rights;

š  be open and honest with individuals whose data is held;

š  provide training and support for volunteers who handle personal data, so that they can act confidently and consistently.

H&DAA recognises that its first priority under the GDPR is to avoid causing harm to individuals.  In the main this means:

š  keeping data securely in the right hands;

š  holding good quality data.

Key risks H&DAA has identified the following potential key risks, which this policy is designed to address:

š  breach of confidentiality (data being given out inappropriately);

š  insufficient clarity about the range of uses to which data will be put — leading to Data Subjects being insufficiently informed;

š  failure to offer choice about data use when appropriate;

š  breach of security by allowing unauthorised access;

š  harm to individuals if personal data is not up to date.

Volunteers All volunteers are required to read, understand and accept any policies and procedures that relate to the personal data they may handle in the course of their work.

š  only allow its volunteers access to the data they need to do their job and won’t let them share passwords.

š  take regular back-ups of the data on its computer system and keep them in a separate place so that if it loses its computers, it doesn’t lose the data;

š  securely remove all personal data before disposing of old computers (by using technology or destroying the hard disk).

Email security measures H&DAA will:

š  consider whether the content of the email should be encrypted or password protected;
