Members’ records are held during membership and for a period of twelve months after it ceases.

If you would like to access the information the DTRG holds about you (called a Subject Access Request) or to change the information held, or to cancel membership, please contact the Membership Secretary in writing.
There may be occasions when non-members personal data is required for health & safety reasons if assisting the DTRG as a volunteer. In such circumstances the personal data will be destroyed at the end of the day.
Paper membership application forms are held securely by the Membership Secretary. The database is held on computer equipment and is backed-up. Access to the computer is protected and restricted. Officers of the DTRG committee have password protected access to relevant member details via the securely hosted DTRG website
We have no members under the age of 18 and do not currently anticipate any joining.
Data protection breaches will be reported by the DTRG to the Information Commissioner’s Office in line with the requirements of that office. Should a breach occur, an investigation would take place to identify the root cause and to put in place measures to avoid a recurrence.
These include a right to object to our use of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation and the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory body. If you wish to make a complaint about how the DTRG has processed your personal data, you may contact the Chairman at the address given on the website.
