Does St. Michael's Duplicate Bridge Club collect any “special” data?

The GDPR refers to sensitive personal data as “special categories of personal data”.
We do not record any such special data.

How can you ask for data to be removed, limited or corrected?

There are various ways in which you can limit how your data is used.


You could maintain your club membership but with limited contact details. However, we do need to have at least one method of contacting you. You could for example simply maintain an up-to-date email address, but of course this would limit what we provide you with in the way of written information.

You do not need to provide us with your date of birth.


You may choose not to receive information emails from St. Michael's Duplicate District Bridge Club (we do not send any out on behalf of other organisations).

Any of these options can be implemented for your club membership by contacting the Club Secretary

What happens if a member dies?

We normally keep members' information after they die.
