Privacy and Accessibility

Every effort has been made to ensure that the original template pages for this site are W3C compatible.

However, as the content of pages is supplied by the club, such content may not be compatible.


We do not use cookies on this site to identify individuals, other than when a member logs into the members area. These are 'Session Cookies' which are destroyed when a member logs out of the site or closes the browser window - they are not stored long term on the user's computer. These are used so that a member can only log into his/her club etc.

We use Google Analytics to make sure our statistics are reliable.

Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. We do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.

We have some pages that link to external tools such as Google Maps and YouTube. These tools sit on Google’s web servers and you can find more information on Google's Privacy Policy here.

Some pages may have cookies used to integrate with Social Media sites, so that, for example, if you are logged into Facebook, you can 'like' pages.

We do not collect personal data in the public area of the site - if you complete a contact form, for example, your email address is not stored in a database for re-use, nor is any information passed to third parties.


Rotary logoGDPR Policy for Wells Rotary

Wells Rotary is part of the Rotary International organisation, Rotary Great Britain and Ireland and Rotary District 1200, known together as the Rotary family.

The club exists to:

  1. Develop fellowship within the Rotary family, particularly within the club

  2. Promote high standards in all that its members engage in

  3. Support activities of members and friends of the Rotary family

  4. Take steps to improve the lot of people and organisations wherever an opportunity to do so is perceived

  5. Engage with others as appropriate so that its purposes may be furthered


All its activities are guided by the Four Way Test of Rotary which asks of any proposed action:

  1. Is it the truth?

  2. Is it fair to all concerned?

  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?

  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?


If a proposal does not satisfy this test entirely the proposal will not be taken further.


Application of this test in the context of data handling will ensure that the club:

  1. Gathers only the data which it reasonably needs;

  2. Gets agreement from a member’s partner that their name might be held and used, where appropriate, for Rotary purposes;

  3. Uses the data only for the purposes it was originally given or might reasonably be assumed to flow ;

  4. Is open and straightforward about how it gathers, keeps and uses data and will let any person know what data is held about them if they should ask; if desired, the data will be corrected or removed, as far as is consistent with membership of Rotary;

  5. Keeps the data only for as long as it reasonably might be thought to need it;

  6. Requires that all members handle data relating to members in accordance with this policy, whether on paper or some other form of storage;

  7. Guides members to the options about controlling access to their data within the Rotary family, via the website and DMS database;

  8. Ensures that data passed elsewhere within the Rotary family is handled according to these principles: 

    1. Rotary International’s policy is at

    2. Rotary Great Britain and Ireland’s policy is at

    3. District 1200’s policy is at

  9. Does not pass data outside the Rotary family without clear permission and good cause, unless required by law.
