General Data Protection Regulation

General Data Protection Regulation

In a few weeks, data protection laws are changing to better protect you and your information. Here at WHiST, we think this is really important so we have updated WHiST’s Membership Forms with a new Data Protection and Confidentiality policy to explain how your information is managed. To ensure continuation of Membership, a new Membership form will need to have been completed within the last few months. If a new Membership form has not been completed, a new one will need to be completed as soon as possible, as the new law comes into action on 25th May 2018. If an updated Membership form is not completed, a Member’s information will be removed from WHiST’s database after 25th May, as WHiST will not legally be able to keep it. If this happens it will result in individual Member’s not being able to access courses or classes that they are on waiting lists for.

Any Members can call into WHiST before 25th May and we’ll happily help. WHiST membership records can be checked for Members, to see if a signed up to date Membership Form has been completed. If not, a new form can be filled in whilst there.
