GDPR , Romaclub and You
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a regulation that was made a legal requirement in 2016 by the European Union and ratified by the European Parliament and The Council of Europe. The regulations were encompassed into UK law in 2018. The purpose of GDPR is to make sure that any personal information and data held by an organisation is done so in a secure and legal manner. To that end organisations need to obtain consent from you to store and use your personal information. If you joined the club before 2018 you will have received a consent form to agree to the club holding personal information such as addresses and phone numbers. There is now a consent form included in the membership application form for all new members. There are no formal instructions as to how often this consent should be sought and here at the club we are working on the assumption that your consent gained when joining the club will last for the duration of your membership. The information we hold is limited to your names, addresses, phone numbers and details of your vehicle. Rest assured that this information is always stored on password protected devices and will never be shared with a third party. Should you leave the club all information stored on our database will be deleted. Although your continued consent is assumed you are free to withdraw it at any time. Should you choose to withdraw your consent then you can write to the membership secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org stating your desire to ‘opt out’.
Although the UK has now left the European Union the regulations still remain in place. Should the regulations, in the future, change then we will inform you accordingly.
GRAND RAFFLE PRIZE
Our star prize at our AGMs is a chance to win your Roma Road Tax for free. Our lucky winner receives a cheque to cover their yearly tax.
With the cost of living continuing to rise and the money we need to find to keep our Romahomes on the road and touring, the committee have decided to run this as an annual raffle.
To make it fair to every member, as not all members wish to or are able to attend the AGM, entry will be automatic for everyone who has renewed their membership by 1st February.
The star prize will be drawn at the following AGM and the winner notified.
This doesn’t cost you anymore than your current membership fee of £20 which was due on 1st December.
For those of you that join after October you will already be entered as your subscription is not due for renewal until the following December.
Hello everyone I am the newly elected Rally Officer for the Romaclub, which is the club for owners of Romahomes and Romini caravans. We organise two large rallies per year, and several meets in between. We are keen to encourage new members to join the group; I joined last year and have attended two rallies which were so much fun. Membership is only £20 per year and runs from January to December. As we are halfway through the year, and I know several people are considering joining, we are offering all new members who sign up between now and the end of July, the chance to win a free pitch at our Autumn rally in September. The pitch fees have been kindly donated back to the club by another new member who won the raffle at our AGM rally in May. If you would like to join, here is the link to our website
