Data Protection

The BOC collects, processes and stores personal data concerning its members.  We make sure that we comply with the relevant data protection legislation, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Our privacy notice explains what data we collect, and how we use and store it.

The BOC has determined that it has a legitimate reason for collecting and processing data relating to its members.     We have carried out a legitimate interests assessment, which documents how we comply with the GDPR.  The assessment is reviewed regularly and revised when necessary.

Further information on data protection is available from the Hon Secretary.

Safeguarding and Equality Policy

Membership of the BOC is open to people of all ages and we want to encourage young people to be involved in the Club.

To make sure that young people under 18 who participate in the Club’s activities are protected, the BOC has a safeguarding and equality policy. Please read it if you or any of your family are under 18 and wish to come to one of the Club’s events.
