If you are a member of the club we hold your contact details as part of
your membership so that we can contact you and send you a newsletter.
We do not use your details for marketing lists etc.
If you are not a member of our club, you are receiving this newsletter as
one of ~ 300 people we send out the newsletter to, and this number has
grown over the years. Your contact details are held only as email
addresses by the Chairman of the Club, for the sole purpose of sending
you a copy of the newsletter.
Now, on the 25th May 2018, significant changes were made to European
Data Protection law by means of something known as the GDPR
(General Data Protection Regulations) and this replaces the current UK
Data Protection Act.
You can find more information regarding this here: https://www.eugdpr.org
One of the changes, mandated by GDPR, is that any marketing mailing
lists must now be specifically subscribed to rather than having to opt out.
The good news is that we do not use the newsletter emailing list for any
marketing campaigns, so no action is required on your part to opt in. In
effect you are, and always have been, automatically opted out. However
if you don’t want us to keep your email address, please email me with the
subject “cancel newsletter” and we will delete your email address, in
which case this would mean we would no longer be able to send you a
copy of our newsletter.
Ken Jones – Chairman
I make no apologies for my raisin d’être, or the lack of nuts - in my prose, it's just that I prefer raisins or not - depending on my mood Ed.
Just a reminder to all WMNGC members, that to be included in the next Members’ Contributions section, your article should be with me by Friday 21st September. Volume 21 Issue 3 will be published in late September 2018.
