GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) statement

You may be aware that from 25th May this year, new European data protection law comes into force about how organisations use personal data they collect about you. As a result we will be updating our website to explain how we use the personal data we collect about you as a Sowerby Bridge Snails RC member.

As you know, we use the personal data you give us (via the online membership form) to administer your membership and we only share your name and address data with 1) the EA – if you’ve asked us to arrange affiliation and 2) Sowerby Bridge Cricket Club – as your Snails membership automatically gives you social membership to the cricket club. We take the protection of your personal information seriously and if you have any questions please speak to Wendy Evans, Membership Secretary. Thanks
