Merrow Residents’ Association (MRA) exists to inform its members within the community of local issues and events and to represent members’ interests and concerns when necessary. When members provide their personal details on joining or for annual renewal, all such data is in the exclusive possession of the MRA Executive Committee. We have not shared the data with any third party and our reason for any contact with members is for Legitimate Interest only, as described below:-
• Membership Renewal forms sent annually by post.
• Reminder letters sent by post if renewals are unpaid within 12 months.
• “Merrow Life” newsletter sent by post twice per year.
• Email news and events sent periodically, if an email request has been sent to the firstname.lastname@example.org and an acknowledgement has been received.
The Committee of MRA has appointed a Data Controller and a Data Processor, within its Executive, to ensure all members’ data is stored securely and will not be shared with any third party. The Committee follows the guidance issued by the Government on the General Data Protection Regulations on data storage and only retains data on members for as long as it is needed to communicate with members and to verify their membership status. Our members may change their preferences for contact at anytime and will be reminded annually about this.
