For example, confidential paper records are securely stored, virus and other security software is in place and updated. Confidential paper waste is shredded.

 Whoever holds data outside the DMS within the club should undertake regular reviews to ensure that your personal information is only accessible by the Rotary members and our service/host providers securely and only for the purpose collected and destroyed once the data has reached its planned time of use. 

We have a duty to report certain types of personal data breaches to the relevant supervisory authority, and where feasible, we will do this within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach.  If a breach is detected and likely to result in a high risk of adversely affecting you, we will inform you without undue delay.

We shall delete your information according to these statutory limits, or according to guidance issued by the Information Commissioner.

Individual members are responsible for keeping their own personal data up to date and have access to the Rotary GB&I Data Management System (DMS) or My Rotary on the Rotary GB&I website for this purpose. In addition, where necessary, we will keep your information accurate and up-to-date.
