Who has access to your data?

Trustees and staff of NRCA have access to members’ data in order for them to carry out their legitimate tasks for the organisation. Sub-contractors of NRCA may be given temporary access to the specific data they need for specific tasks, such as sending mailings. They are not free to use it for any other purpose.


What is the legal basis for collecting this data?

NRCA collects personal data that is necessary for the purposes of its legitimate interests as a membership organisation, and to comply with our legal obligations.

How you can check what data we have about you?

If you want to see the basic membership data we hold about you, you should contact the Centre Manager (01708 766308, 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.

Does NRCA 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.

·         We are required by law to maintain a membership list containing your name and address, so you cannot ask for this information to be removed unless you resign as a member

·         you cannot ask for your car registration number to be removed unless you relinquish your car parking permit

·         You do not need to provide us with an e-mail address, or you may choose not to receive information emails from NRCA (we do not send any out on behalf of other organisations)

·         You do not need to provide us with your date of birth unless you wish to benefit from concessions based on age.

·         Any of these options can be implemented by contacting the office at NRCA


How long we keep your data for, and why?

We normally keep members’ data after they resign or their membership lapses in case they later wish to  re-join. However, we will delete any former member’s contact details entirely on request.

Other data, such as that relating to accounting or personnel matters, is kept for the legally required period.

What happens if a member dies?

We do not deliberately keep members’  information after they die. If a person dies, the executor or bona fide representative of that person can ask for their contact details to be deleted immediately.
