What is this personal data used for?
Who is your data shared with?
Your personal data is not passed on by us to any other organisation, whether or not connected with bridge.
Data for our students comes from them when they join our teaching program.
This information is mainly stored in digital form on our computers and in the form of written documents stored at our home address.
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) we do not have a
statutory requirement to have a Data Protection Officer.
Your teachers have access to students’ data in order for them to carry out their legitimate tasks for the organisation.
Bridge First Steps collects personal data that is necessary for the purposes of its legitimate interests of the organisation and in order to teach students the game of bridge.
If you want to see the basic data we hold about you, you should contact Ian or Julie Grant.
You can contact us with a “Subject Access Request” if you want to ask us to provide you with any other information we hold about you. If you are interested in any particular aspects, specifying them will help us to provide you with what you need quickly and efficiently. We are required to provide this to you within one month.
There is not usually a fee for this, though we can charge a reasonable fee based on the administrative cost of providing the information if a request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, or for requests for further copies of the same information.
The GDPR refers to sensitive personal data as “special categories of personal data”.
We do not record any such special data of these categories.
There are various ways in which you can limit how your data is used.
Any of these options can be implemented for your studentship by contacting Ian or Julie Grant.
We normally keep student data after they finish their learning program in case they later wish to re-join. However, we will delete any former students’ contact details entirely on request.
What happens if a member dies?
We normally keep students’ information after they die. If requested by their next-of-kin to delete it we will do so on the same basis as when requested to remove data by a former member.
