Introduction

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation which came into force on 25 May
2018, this document sets out the approach of Cambridge Early Music to the collection, use and
management of the personal data of its members under the following headings:

– The data we collect and in what way;
– How the data are stored and who has access to them;
– Sharing the data;
– Purpose for which the data are used;
– Data removal and archiving;

The data we collect and in what way

On becoming a member of Cambridge Early Music individuals are asked to complete an application form and to supply name and email address, a residential address and telephone number.

The data is stored electronically on Cameo, then updated either through the annual membership renewal process or as new data are made available throughout the year (e.g. change of email or residential address).

Names and email addresses are also entered by the Administrator on a MailChimp contact database in order to facilitate the dispatch/receipt of an online newsletter.

How the data are stored and who has access to them

Only the Administrator, the Chair of CEM, the Chair of the Friends of Cambridge Early Music, and the data officer for the Friends of Cambridge Early Music have access to the full set of personal data of members of Cambridge Early Music stored by Cameo.

Only the Administrator has access to the set of names and email addresses stored by MailChimp.

Paper application forms are passed to the Chair and data officer for the Friends of Cambridge Early Music once data have been entered on to Cameo and MailChimp contact database by the Administrator, and are stored alphabetically in year order.

Online application forms are stored electronically and password-protected.

Sharing the data

The complete data set is shared solely between the officers as described above.

The complete data set will not be shared with any third party unless legally obliged to do so.

From time to time it might be necessary to share the personal data of one member of Cambridge Early Music with another in order, for example, to arrange transport to a concert of one member by another. This will not, however, be done, without the agreement of the members concerned.

Purpose for which the data are used

The data are processed on the basis of legitimate interest.

The data are used primarily as a vehicle for disseminating information about Cambridge Early Music and its activities.

The membership application form and online ticket purchase website specifically ask members to opt in to receiving information from Cambridge Early Music.

Each electronic newsletter provides the option to unsubscribe.

Data removal and archiving

A member who fails to renew his/her membership is marked on the database as expired. Newsletters continue to be sent to lapsed members, with their permission. However, the data relating to former members will be deleted after 5 years from expiration of their membership, if we have had no contact with them. Anybody who requests to be removed is deleted.
