Data Protection Policy

The General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect on 25 May 2018 and places obligations on all organisations holding personal data.  It replaces the Data Protection Act of 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (EC Directive) of 2013.

This Data Protection Legislation is concerned with the protection of human rights in relation to personal data.

The membership secretary, Richard Grout, is the person responsible for ensuring compliance with this policy.

During the course of the activities of the Grange-over-Sands and District Concert Club we will collect and store personal data about our season ticket holders who are de facto club members.

This information is limited to name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.  It is used to inform members about the Annual General Meeting, the programme, season ticket renewal, and any social events.

It will also be used to mail season tickets where necessary and to notify members of any changes to the programme, as well as requesting opinions about the services on offer.

It will not be divulged to any third parties or be used for direct marketing.

Electronic data will be stored on a password protected computer, and paper applications in a secure location.

Procedures will be regularly monitored and reviewed to ensure data is being kept secure.

Members have the right to know what information is being held, what it is used for, and any inaccuracies corrected or erased.

Any request for access to data should be made to the Membership Secretary, Richard Grout at

We will contact you annually to check that the information we are holding is accurate and that you agree to it.

It will be held for as long as necessary under the requirements of membership, but always complying with

Legislation. If at any time a member wishes their details to be erased they can do so by contacting Richard Grout.
