Respecting and protecting your personal data

New data protection regulations

TAY has always aimed to respect and protect the personal data of all our members, noting that the vast majority of your orienteering relevant data is collected by British Orienteering or Scottish Orienteering and shared with appropriate and approved TAY members.

As you may be aware, the new General Data Protection Regulation, known as GDPR, recently came ome into law. GDPR imposes new rules around data protection for any organisation that collects and uses data about EU residents. The regulation is designed to strengthen existing data protection laws for all individuals who reside in the EU. In essence, these new regulations make changes to existing law to make it clear to you (our membership) on what personal data we hold on you; how we intend to use it; and to make clear to you the rights you have with that data. To be compliant with GDPR, TAY has updated our privacy policy page This details the information we collect on you, how we use it, and your rights.

Our mailing list has always been an “opt-in” list. So if you are on our mailing list, you will have replied to an email requesting that you wanted to be added. You can unsubscribe at any point by contacting the current secretary at
