GDPR and the Penallt mailing list


Like many village halls, societies, sports clubs, etc, Pelham Hall/Penallt village holds a database of residents’ email addresses, home addresses and telephone numbers. We use this primarily to send out emails of village interest; home addresses and telephone numbers are rarely used but are maintained as a secondary means of communication.

The database exists in the form of a simple Excel spreadsheet to which access is heavily restricted to a small subset of the Pelham Hall Committee and is not available for use by anyone else.

Joining the list is very easy - just send a mail to the site webmaster giving permission for the Pelham Hall committee to hold details of name(s), email address, phone number and address.

GDPR: A new regulation about data protection (the General Data Protection Regulation) came into force on May 25th 2018. The Hall has drawn up a policy on how it maintains its data, a copy of which can be found here.
