GDPR - Data Protection
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25th May 2018

You may be aware that the EBU has put together information regarding the revised rule required for Data Protection These can then be applied uniformly across all clubs.

Bridgewebs generally conforms to these rules, but will be reviewed and updated where required. However, the Data Protecion rules, are as much the housekeeping of the club  as any software.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25th May 2018

Release 2.19m

Bridgewebs should be able to satisfy the requirements of the GNDP. However, it will require that clubs adhere to certain manual guidelines...............

Release 2.19m will be available from 14th May 2018. This will additionally cover the points of GDPR requiring updates to Bridgewebs.

Privacy Statement

Bridgewebs needs both a Privacy statement and a Contract regarding its relationship between Bridgewebs and the Club. We are working on this.

The Club needs a different Privacy statement regarding its relationship between the Club and its Members. We are looking at whether a general Privacy Policy could be built dynamically from a standard template. 

Member Lists

The GDPR reinforces rules that have been there before.

All information collected relating to the members of the club is “personal data” and only that which is in the the club’s “legitimate interest” to have this information.

Any "personal data" can only be used when the member has consented to its use and "Opted-In".

You can use the Bridgewebs Membership database for your Member data, provided that the necessary security is in place and Bridgewebs satisfies the re requirements.

"Member Lists" should not generally be available to view by Members, but where available, each Member needs to consent to their information being presented 

If you haven't set the consents or want to remove "Member List" until you have, then go to WebAdmin - Menu - "Member Tab" and remove the "Member List" by dragging to second bar.

There will be 6 Opt-In fields fields as follows.

  • Opt-In Show in Lists - The details for this person will not be shown in any Member list.
  • Opt-In Bulk Email - This email will not be included in any Bulk Email.
  • Opt-In Show Email - The email will not show in any list.  
  • Opt-In Show Phone - The phone will not show in any list.
  • Opt-In Show Mobile - The mobile will not show in any list. 
  • Opt-In Show Rank etc. - The EBU/ACBL Rank, NGS or Master Points will not show in any list 

The 3 "Show Email", "Show Phone", "Show Mobile" Opt-Ins are the primary ways of contacting a member and may be used outside lists, such as "Find a Partner". The "Show Rank etc." provides a means of restricting information obtained from the EBU/ACBL There could be an Opt-In for each piece of data held about a member, but this would overly complicate things, so if a member is concerned about any other information held by the club being shown in a list, the "Opt-In" - "Show in Lists" overides all other "Show".

Please note the EBU have anonymous settings and Bridgewebs obeys these if present.

The Membership list, Member Only, and Admin and have all been updated to the Bridgewebs "Membership List" features. This has been further enhanced to show a choice selection option for any fields of a choice nature such as the "Status" and "Email Status".
