General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Toni Walsh | April 25, 2018 |

As you know, when you join the Academy we ask you to complete and sign an Application for Membership, providing us with your name, address, phone numbers, email address and date of birth. We also ask for relevant information regarding your health and a contact for emergency purposes. All the information provided is treated in the strictest of confidence.

On 25 May 2018, as a result of European legislation, the Government’s new GDPR comes into force regarding the collection and use of personal information. It involves stricter regulations and tougher fines for all organizations (including charities and the voluntary sector) for breach of the legislation.

In order to comply with the GDPR, we will be issuing a new form to all ETCA Members. It will ask you to confirm the information about you we hold, ask you to update it if necessary and advise you how we store, protect and use it; and also how we dispose of it in the event that you leave the Academy. You will be asked to sign two copies as consent.

Our Chairman will hold and use your personal details for the purposes stated. You should retain the second copy for your records. Please ask your Instructor if you have any questions or concerns.
