GDPR: Data Protection

The UK’s first Data Protection Act was passed in 1984 and the second Act was passed in 1998, coming into force on 1 March 2000. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was passed in 2016 and comes into force after a two-year preparation period on 25 May 2018. GDPR originated in the European Parliament but will be fully absorbed into UK law regardless of the UK exiting the European Union. The regulation will apply across all EU member states including the Republic of Ireland, where it replaces the Acts of 1988 and 2003.

In view of these changes in data protection laws, I have removed all personal contact details for Committee members and Judges in the interim until we have established how best to comply with the new requirements as some officers and officials may also have their details on the national website I have disabled access to the Guestbook and Contact Us pages of this website so, in the meantime, please channel all judging requests and enquiries through the generic email address. Your email details will not be passed on to a third party and will be held only long enough to provide a suitable response to your enquiry. Anyone has the right to have their personal data, including photographs, removed from this website and we will seek to comply with all such requests in a timely manner.

Over the course of the coming year Sue Rowe, our Treasurer, will compile a new database of personal contact details of those of you who have consented in writing to provide such details. The purpose of these details is to enable us to communicate with you directly and quickly in the event of a meeting cancellation, or our need to convey information to you of a similar urgency. For example, we might need to chase up trophy winners to return them ahead of the next Show.

Your personal contact details will be held securely by Sue purely for the purposes of internal communication and your details will not be sold or divulged to any third parties. You have the right to request the removal of your details from this database at any time.
