General Data Protection Regulations

On May 28th 2018 a new set of Data Protection regulations will come into force. This will affect how the club stores and uses your personal information. Personal Information includes name, address, telephone number, email address, date of birth etc. We have one main use for this data:- to enable “The Record” and other club items e.g. AGM papers to be sent out.
In addition we are required to send name and addresses to the BCA for our caving insurance. Also the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) require us to send details of our shareholders – that’s all of you members!!
These uses are necessary to run the club and carry out our legal obligations.

In addition we also make available a membership list and compile the “Rogues Gallery” of notable miscreants. These last uses now require us to have your active permission to include your details in them. In the past this permission was assumed but in future it must be actively given. This shouldn’t be an onerous task, accessing the online membership list on the website should be sufficient for members to give/withdraw this permission, or if you’ve definitively forgotten your password, an email or letter to the Secretary or IT Guru will have the same effect.
We also run an email list to keep members in touch – every email from the list contains a link to allow members to unsubscribe from it.

We are required to make a statement of our Privacy Policy on our website. The current version of that is on the home page in the "footer" section.

To summarise:- we would like you to give/withdraw your consent for
    1. (Personal Data) - sharing your personal data with other members i.e. the membership list.
    2. (Historic Data) - sharing historic data (name, date of joining, date of leaving) for the “Rogues Gallery”.
    3. (BCA Data) – sharing your gender/email address with the BCA.
To attempt to maintain consistency with current practice the Personal Data consent is set to ‘YES’, Historic Data consent to ‘YES’ and BCA Data consent to ‘NO’.
Changing your consents can be done either by an email to the secretary or by logging onto the website membership list and setting your preferences there.

1.01 Craven Pothole Cub Ltd recognises the requirements of the Protection of Children Act 1999 (PoCA).

1.02 PoCA includes "children", that is under 18s’ and "young persons", that is young people recognised as children under the act, (further referred to here with equal meaning as "young persons" or “children").

1.03 PoCA takes in sexual, emotional and physical abuse and also "neglect" (which includes all aspects of failure to ensure the safety of a young persons and vulnerable adults).


2.01 Craven Pothole Club Ltd recognises the importance of the welfare of young persons and vulnerable adults and their right to protection from abuse as set out in section 1.00 of this document.

2.02 Craven Pothole Club Ltd recognises its duty of care to young persons and vulnerable adults, for the actions of its trustees, officers & agents.

2.03 Craven Pothole Club Ltd will take all allegations of child abuse seriously and will respond to such allegations quickly.

2.04 Craven Pothole Club Ltd considers that in any caving or mine exploration activity safety of the participants and conservation of the cave is of paramount concern at all times.

2.05 Underlying this it must be borne in mind that Craven Pothole Club Ltd does not proactively promote the participation of young persons or vulnerable adults in caving or mine exploration. It takes this stance for a number of reasons:

  1. caving can often be a strenuous activity requiring a mature physical and mental approach
  2. a working knowledge of weather patterns & limestone hydrology can be vital for safe caving
  3. caves are a strictly limited physical resource that deserve a mature appreciation of their conservation requirements.
