Privacy and Accessibility

Every effort has been made to ensure that the original template pages for this site are W3C compatible.

However, as the content of pages is supplied by the club, such content may not be compatible.


We do not use cookies on this site to identify individuals, other than when a member logs into the members area. These are 'Session Cookies' which are destroyed when a member logs out of the site or closes the browser window - they are not stored long term on the user's computer. These are used so that a member can only log into his/her club etc.

We use Google Analytics to make sure our statistics are reliable.

Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. We do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.

We have some pages that link to external tools such as Google Maps and YouTube. These tools sit on Google’s web servers and you can find more information on Google's Privacy Policy here.

Some pages may have cookies used to integrate with Social Media sites, so that, for example, if you are logged into Facebook, you can 'like' pages.

We do not collect personal data in the public area of the site - if you complete a contact form, for example, your email address is not stored in a database for re-use, nor is any information passed to third parties.


Privacy Policy

As required by the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), this document explains how we use data about living individuals.

Why do we need your information?

To enable communication between members, manage the business of the Club and compile a historical record for the Club archives.

Whose data do we collect?

We hold data on all Active, Associate, Corporate, Honorary and former members together with limited data on people who are friends of Rotary.

How we obtain your data?

The majority of the information we hold about you has been provided directly to us by you. Members of the Club are deemed to have given permission to collect and hold their data by virtue of having applied, and been accepted, for membership.

Those deemed to be a friend of Rotary are specifically asked for their permission to collect and hold their personal data.

What data do we collect and store, and why?

Full name, address, telephone number(s) and e-mail address: to enable contact to be maintained.

Key Dates: Including when inducted as a Rotarian, served as President, Secretary or Treasurer; nominated as a Paul Harris Fellow, presented with a long-service certificate.

With whom do we share data?

The Club is a constituent part of Rotary International, Rotary International Great Britain and Ireland and District 1060. Data on members and former members shared with those bodies is name, address, telephone number(s), e-mail address and date of becoming a member of the Club.

Who holds the data?

The Club database is held and maintained by the Club Secretary.

A smaller database containing only the name, address, telephone number(s), e-mail is maintained by the Rotarian nominated as the compiler of the Club Handbook.

Note: Members’ personal data kept on an electronic device by anyone other than the two officers referred to above is the responsibility of the person keeping the data and they must ensure that they abide by the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

How safe is the data?

The databases are kept electronically and can only be accessed by the owner of the password. Personal details are never sent by e-mail. E-mails to multi-recipient members are always sent by blind carbon copy (bcc). The printed list of members in the Club Handbook is prefaced by an injunction that the information is to be used solely for Rotary purposes, not to release the information to non-club members and to destroy the document at the end of each Rotary year.
