The General Data Protection Regulation
The General Data Protection Regulation is for companies, clubs and associations that gather personal data. Introduced by the EU in April 2016 – enforcement begins 25 May 2018.
1) Right to be Informed
We hold email addresses for those who have elected to allow their details to be published on the CVTHS Register or signed up to receive post notifications on the blog. Your consent was given at the point that you elected to appear on the Register and which you can withdraw from at any time.
We hold only your first and last names, email address, town, county (or state) and country of residence, the years you attended CVTHS and in some cases your web address. This information that you have given us to publish is purely for the interest of other ‘old boys’ and to give them a means of getting in touch without having to ask the administration for details. We also only collect and hold this minimal information for the purposes or remaining in contact with you.
Personal information is not shared outside of CVTHS for any purposes whatsoever. Contact information will never be passed to a third party on their request but your permission sought first.
From 25th may 2018 only information or images that you have expressly given your permission for will be published on the CTVHS website
We have no intention of sharing any personal information at any point in the future with any third parties.
2) Rights of access, rectification, erasure
You have the right to view the personal information that we hold about you. You also have the right to ask us to correct any inaccurate personal information we hold about you or to delete personal information we currently hold.
If you have any concerns about how your personal information is used, please contact us.
The policy statement can be found here on our website.
Your help on this
We are not lawyers and this statement may not cover all the bases but we would just like to reassure all of our old boys that the website and blog exist purely as a means of old boys keeping in touch whilst continually creating a historical online record of the Cray Valley Technical High School. We do not sell on or otherwise allow third party access to any data we may hold.
If there are any ‘old boy’ lawyers out there who could be of assistance with these new regulations then we would be very grateful for your input!
