General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

On 25th May 2018 a new EU Regulation came into force concerning how an individual’s personal data is collected, accessed, processed and managed.

As we hold information supplied by our members and friends when you completed our membership form we need to advise you what we hold, who is responsible and what we do with this information.

The information is held by our Membership Secretary on a computer; contact information is shared with other members and is used by them to contact you concerning activities at the Players Theatre Thame.

Any financial information you have previously supplied, for instance for a Standing Order is not retained by us once it is in place. We will continue to send you Backdrop newsletter monthly and details of events being held at the theatre.

We do not supply any of your information to other sources, if you wish us to remove or amend your information or discuss GDPR then please contact our Membership Secretary.

We respect your privacy and do not collect identifiable information. Data (like your email address) entered to receive updates on our programmes is held securely and is never shared.
