The law on data protection changes on 25 May 2018 when the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. The BGA is committed to protecting personal data. We hold the personal data supplied to us by individuals that is needed to provide and support member services. Without the data, we cannot supply our services. We hold the data on secure servers. The data is processed by approved BGA personnel via password protected back-office software. All credit/debit card data details are deleted on payment. The BGA only shares personal data with third parties where approved by the person who the data relates to, when strictly necessary for the purpose, where required to provide our member services, or where required to do so by law. We require those third parties to protect data in compliance with the law. In the event of a data breach, we will notify you. You have the right to be informed, right of access, right to rectify, right to erasure, right to restrict processing, right to data portability, right to object, and the right to not be subjected to automated decision making, including profiling. The BGA does not operate automatic decision making or data-profiling processes. You can view our Privacy Notice here.
Our forms and websites are being updated to comply with the GDPR requirements.
