GDPR: Data Protection

The UK’s first Data Protection Act was passed in 1984 and the second Act was passed in 1998, coming into force on 1 March 2000. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was passed in 2016 and comes into force after a two-year preparation period on 25 May 2018. GDPR originated in the European Parliament but will be fully absorbed into UK law regardless of the UK exiting the European Union. The regulation will apply across all EU member states including the Republic of Ireland, where it replaces the Acts of 1988 and 2003.

In view of these changes in data protection laws, I have removed all personal contact details for Committee members except where express written permission has been granted for key contact purposes such as the Plant Sale location and reception points for completed exhibitor entry forms and accompanying fees. 

All general enquiries should be channelled through the generic email address swanlandshow@gmail.comYour email details will not be passed on to a third party and will be held only long enough to provide a suitable response to your enquiry.

Intending exhibitors will be required to provide personal contact details and to sign a declaration of permission on the entry form to that effect. For example, we may need to remind trophy winners to return them ahead of the next Show. This information is held securely and retained merely for Show administration purposes and will not be divulged or sold to any third parties. 

Swanland Show reserves the right to take photographs of its events such as the Plant Sale and annual Show, and to use these for promotional purposes. Photographs of specific individuals will not be published unless an image use consent form has first been completed by that individual or guardian (in the case of under 16 year olds)

Please note that anyone has the right to have their personal data, including photographs, removed from this website and we will seek to comply with all such requests in a timely manner.
