This is the contents page for all articles for clubs regarding GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
The following articles and links are to support club officers and committee members in understanding what the GDPR is and how to help their club to become 'GDPR compliant'.
New articles containing further guidance and support for club officers and committee members will be regularly added to the BMC website and listed below.
Sport and Recreation Alliance (SRA)
The SRA has recently published advice on GDPR specifically aimed at the sport and recreation sector, including guidance and templates specifically for clubs.
The guidance can be found at www.sportandrecreation.org.uk/pages/gdpr-clubs
Not all templates and guidance will be appropriate for all clubs, so don't feel that you need to use everything that has been provided.
The Privacy Notice options cover several documents - the BMC will be using the content and producing Privacy Notice that will be suitable for most BMC clubs to use.

There is also more information to support the running of BMC clubs on the Clubs Guidelines and Huts Guidelines pages
This guidance has been written for the committee of a mountaineering, walking or climbing club to use while reviewing the way that their club processes data within their club to ensure compliance with GDPR. It is based on information available at the time of writing. There are several topics where the Information Commissioners Office still has to provide full guidance, therefore additional information may be made available to clubs in the future.
This guidance is provided by the BMC to assist clubs and does not constitute legal advice.
