Cambridge Drawing Society General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) Policy

What is GDPR?

GDPR is a strengthening of the existing data protection regulations under the Data Protection Act 1998. All organisations are subject to its provisions – including charities and not-for profit associations – and the deadline for compliance is approaching on 25th May. Breaches of the regulations can result in action being taken against the organisation by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

The Cambridge Drawing Society GDPR policy can be found here.

Each member, Friend of the Society, previous purchasers and exhibition visitors, where personal data is held will receive correspondence seeking their positive consent to continue to hold their personal data. If consent is not received the individual's personal data will be deleted.

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 2018 provides you, the data subject, with a right to receive a copy of the data/information we hold about you or to authorise someone to act on your behalf. Please complete this form if you wish to see your data. You will also need to provide proof of your identity. Your request will be processed within 30 calendar days upon receipt of a fully completed form and proof of identity. The Cambridge Drawing Society Subject Access Request form can be found here.
