We have operated the South Woodham Ferrers U3A under the requirements of the UK Data Protection Act 1998 (c.f. wikipedia)
In May new EU legislation comes in to force which becomes enforceable on 25 May 2018, (c.f. wikipedia)
The new requirements are largely the same as we have been following but add the need for better information and communication. The committee have recieved documentation and advice from the National U3A office and following discussion have released two documents for your information. These will remain on the web site for future accesss and will be updated if ammended.
I received an email via our web site. Normally I ignore these as they are often spam or commercial requests for publicity. However this is from a local resident who wants help in publicising a charity event here in South Woodham Ferrers. I have quoted his email below.
“Hi there, I am a resident of SWF. (Green Lane) and I am running a couple of fund raising events in Town for the Alzheimer’s Society. (My wife is a sufferer).
I wondered if you might promote these events to your members. I understand you have some Ukulele players in your midst ? The first event is Free music on the Bandstand 21st April 11.00 -16.00. The main event is below. It will be a fine event and I am keen to sell some tickets.
Thanks a lot, PT ” (full name given)
