BAHS Data Protection & Security

The BAHS society is categorised as a not-for-profit organisation under the Data Protection Act. The society is exempt from registration but it is obligated to carry out a few simple procedures as described below.

  • Tell people what you are doing with their data
  • Make sure your staff are adequately trained
  • Use strong passwords
  • Encrypt all portable devices
  • Only keep people’s information for as long as necessary

The data we hold on our members relates to information necessary for the running of the society and covers contact details and member's subscriptions. We do not provide this information to other organisations or third parties.

The information we hold is used to enable communication by email and post along with the running of the members' area. We use your correspondence address for the delivery of items to you such as newsletters and the Glaven Historian. We hold phone numbers to allow us to contact you in case of an issue. Email addresses are used to contact you regarding our events and other matters we think may be of interest. We try to minimise the number of these types of email we send to just one or two emails a month although further emails will be generated if you use the members' area (see below). We use the information on our members to assess trends and guide us in decision making within the BAHS committee.

Through the members' area it is possible for members (with an email address) to login to check their subscription history. They can also check the personal data held by the society and update it as needed.

For added security, when members login, logout or update their personal details they will receive an email notifying them of their activity. If you do not receive these email please check that they are not going into a junk or spam folder.

Access to membership data held on the website is accessible only through logging in using strong passwords that are stored using one-way encryption techniques using a 256-bit hash known as SHA256. Click here for information held on Wikipedia about this technique.

Further Information

If you have questions or concerns about how the society uses the data it holds on you please email the webmaster@history-blakeney-area.org.uk.
