The Ely Diocesan Association of Church Bell Ringers takes the privacy of
its members very seriously.
As a member of the Association, the Ely DA will
hold some data about you. The primary purpose of keeping this data is to publish membership details in the annual report and provide a method of
contacting you about your membership should that become necessary. The officers
of the Ely DA will take all reasonable steps to ensure that private data held
about its members, such as the tower lists contained in the annual report,
remain private, and the Association will never share your personal information with any other organisation or mailing list. In the event that external companies are used to process information, one
The Ely DA will not routinely contact you
about ringing events. If you would like to find out about ringing in your area
then there is a calendar of events for the whole Association here and all four districts provide information by email. For details, see the individual District websites:
- Cambridge District: website, email list
- Ely District: website, email list
- Huntingdon District: website, contact the District Secretary (huntingdonsec_at_elyda.org.uk) to join the email list,
- Wisbech District: website, contact the District Secretary (wisbechsec_at_elyda.org.uk) to join the email list,
Some members will become tower
correspondents or officers of the Association. Contact details for members holding those positions will
be released to the public domain. However, there is no requirement that these
details are the same as those held on record by the Ely DA; for example a generic email address can be used which is redirected to the relevant individual.
The Ely DA requires that all
peals rung for the Association are sent for publication in the Ringing World
and the Association may check such performances against its membership data.
Your local tower will also
probably hold information about its members. Local tower
arrangements are not specifically covered by this privacy statement
but we expect that towers will only hold data for the purposes of administering
your membership or contacting you with information of genuine interest.
If you would like further
information about precisely what data is held about you by the Association
please contact the General Secretary (secretary_at_elyda.org.uk). Please note that the Association is
entitled to charge a statutory fee not exceeding ten pounds for the provision
of this information.
