PRIVACY & COOKIES
Lions Clubs are membership organisations which represent members in the wider field, as well as organising events and training in order to meet their charitable aims. The District guides Clubs through administrative processes and legal requirements. District Officers may be contacted through this website. The district processes “personal data” and/or “special category data” (as defined in law) for its own purposes to provide this guidance to Clubs. District Officers process data in accordance with UK data protection legislation, including UK GDPR.
We realise the importance of confidentiality. Data may be processed in electronic formats as well as on paper. When processed electronically, data may be held on a private cloud based system and/or on a local server. Regardless of how data are processed, all feasible security measures are in place. Data is retained while it forms part of our services, for historical purposes and/or if there is a statutory retention period.
Data may be shared with third parties as part of our services (ie membership administration), for our administrative purposes and/or if we are required to do so by UK law. We may also utilise data on Lions members through the Lions Clubs International database held in the USA. We cannot accept any liability for any processing conducted by a third party outside our remit.
None of the above affects your rights under the legislation, in particular your right to access the data we hold on you. If you wish to request a copy of your data, please submit it in writing via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include enough detail to enable us to identify you and search for appropriate data.
If you have any queries about our procedures, are dissatisfied with this Notice or wish to lodge a complaint, please contact us in the first instance. Thereafter, you have the right to submit a complaint to the Supervisory Authority, The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO):
