As well as complying with legislation, PACS wishes to protect the interests of its members and their personal data at all times by the adoption and implementation of this policy and the operating systems set out below. At the same time PACS wishes to ensure that its members are kept informed and up to date on the activities of the Society and its members.
The Committee of PACS collectively accepts responsibility for this policy and compliance with it. The prime responsibility for operating within this policy rests with [name to be inserted if an an individual volunteers to be the data protection officer] who will work with the Membership Secretary as the holder of the membership database, the prime source of data to be protected.
Members may opt out of receiving information from PACS (but not that relating to membership renewal) by writing or emailing the Membership Secretary at any time.
Any member may ask to see the data on them that is retained by PACS, and PACS shall comply with any such request within a reasonable time.
PACS has adopted the above policy relating to personal data, and operates under the “legitimate interests” aspects of the legislation that acknowledges the need for an organisation like PACS to communicate with its members. PACS will not share any personal data with third parties without your express consent. If you do not want to hear from PACS, you should contact the Membership Secretary.
