1.             ABOUT THIS POLICY

  • This policy explains when, why and how we collect personal information about our members, as well as how it is secured to ensure your rights are protected.
  • We may collect, use and store your personal data as described in this Privacy Policy.
  • We reserve the right to amend this Data Privacy Policy from time to time without prior notice. You are advised to check our website or news page on our blog regularly for amendments.
  • We will always comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) when dealing with your personal data.
  • We (NBA) will be the ‘controller’ of all personal data for the purposes of the GDPR.


  • Currently the Association:
    • has a website that allows data subjects to contact the Association with queries, posts photos of Association events and has an updated blog
    • has an email newsletter system for members
    • runs events, along with an associated ticketing system
    • runs a Facebook group
    • stores data both locally and on the cloud
    • does not use any of the personal data it collects for marketing purposes (except to update members about Association events)
  • The only personal data collected by the association is:
    • Each Member’s full name and email address. This is for the purpose of managing the Association’s online membership directory and for informing members of all information relevant to their membership. The legal basis for this is consent. We will seek the Member’s consent on their member application form. The member may withdraw their consent at any time by contacting us that they no longer wish their details to appear in the Membership Directory or no longer wish to receive emails from us.
  • The bank account or credit card details for each member (or person paying fees on the member’s behalf). This is for the purpose of obtaining a membership fee. The legal basis for this is the performance of the Associations’ contract with the Member.

4.             HANDLING OF DATA

4.1          We have implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect personal data from loss, misuse, or unauthorised alteration or destruction. Privacy by Design is now integrated into our new technology systems to ensure preventative protection that is minimally invasive to you and Privacy by Default is implemented so settings are as a standard set for maximum privacy protection, with the option to opt-in for further sharing of personal data with more parties if the user needs.

4.2          We will not transfer your personal data outside the EU without your consent.

4.3          For any payments we take online a recognised online secure payment system will be used.

4.4          We will notify you promptly in the event of any breach of your personal data which might expose you to serious risk.

4.5          Our data will be stored locally on a database on a computer owned by the organisation and remotely on the cloud on Google Drive and WordPress. Site admins will have access to this data.

  • We use a third party service, to publish our website. This site is hosted at, which is run by Automattic Inc. We use a standard WordPress service to collect anonymous information about users’ activity on the site, for example the number of users viewing pages on the site, to monitor and report on the effectiveness of the site and help us improve it. WordPress requires visitors that want to post a comment to enter a name and email address. For more information about how WordPress processes data, please see Automattic’s privacy notice.

4.8          We may pass your personal data to third parties who are service providers, agents and subcontractors who are completing tasks and providing services on your behalf (eg. ticketing agents and newsletter mailing services. The legal basis for this is for the legitimate interest of operating the Association. However, this will be done minimally such that only the personal data that is necessary for the third party to complete the service will be transferred. It is possible that third parties will engage others (sub-processors) to process your data. Contractual arrangements will ensure that all information is kept secure and used only for agreed purposes.


5.             DISPOSAL OF DATA

In the event that we are not entitled to do so, we will stop processing it and retain it only in an archived form for the purpose of complying with future legal obligations eg. compliance of tax requirements and exemptions, and the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims

5.3          We securely destroy all financial information once it has been used and it is not longer needed.
