1. Data Security
From 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be the de facto standard for data protection in the UK. From September 2017, Nottingham Twins & Triplets Club (“NTTC”, “us”, “we”, or “our”) complies with the principles of GDPR.
Specifically for NTTC:

- Your data will be encrypted at rest, in transport and in use
- Your data will not be sold nor shared with any third‑party
- Access to your data is granted solely to those who require it to fulfil NTTC activites and is provided on a “least possible access” basis. In practical terms:
- The NTTC Chair, Membership Secretary, Treasurer and Newsletter Editor will have access to all data you supply to NTTC for administrative and continuity purposes
- Other NTTC Committee members may be granted access to specific information, limited to your name, the names of your partner and children, the age of those children, email address and membership expiry date for NTTC activities such as event co-ordination
- All members of the NTTC Committee have the facility to email all members. This service is provided anonymously and your data is not shared or made visible during this process
- Your data will be used to:
- Monitor our membership profile at both a macro and a micro level
- Provide statistical insight to the NTTC Committee of member behaviour and interaction with NTTC services
- Keep you updated with Newsletters, emails and/or postal mail per your supplied preferences
- To remind you about Membership renewal dates
- To request your support
- Your data may be anonymised and shared with Partner organisations for statistical or research purposes
- Your data will be actively used as described above for the duration of your membership and a period not extending beyond 3 months after the lapse of that membership
- After 3 months of a membership lapse, your data will be archived and used solely for historic statistical purposes
- You will be contacted via your supplied email address in the unlikely event of security breach which may have exposed your data to an unauthorised third‑party.
You may request that your personal data is purged from our systems entirely at any time. This is a no-cost service, and can be initiated by emailing our Webmaster. You may request an electronic copy of your data as held within NTTC systems at no charge via email to our Webmaster.
