Data Protection

General Data Protection Regulations changed in 2018. These regulations cover all organisations that hold and process personal data whether held electronically or in paper copy form. The Lancashire County Senior Ladies' Golf Association, along with many other clubs and societies, is not exempt.

To comply with the Regulations we have prepared a Privacy Notice for the Association which is below. The Regulations specify that this is made available and is transparent to those whose data is being held or processed. The Privacy Notice sets out the Association's lawful basis for processing data, details what data is being held, what it is being used for, who it is shared with, how long it is held and what your rights are.
