The Triple-M Register is required to meet the requirements of the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), which become effective in the UK and across the EU on 25 May.
This will not be news for those of you who live in the UK, because you have probably already been bombarded by requests from numerous third parties asking you to update your profile with them and in some cases asking you specifically to opt in to receive future communications from them, or remain on their contact lists.
The reason for this is that the GDPR will impose tighter controls on the way in which organisations and others hold and manage what is called 'personal data' of living individuals.
The Triple-M Register is part of the MG Car Club, so we operate under the umbrella of an existing registration the Club has under the present Data Protection Act.
The Register is currently awaiting guidance from the Club as to precisely what our response should be and what changes we need to make to our existing procedures when the GDPR takes effect.
We believe that the Club and our Register can be said to operate under the principle of what is known as 'legitimate interests'. The Club is primarily a not for profit organisation and our purpose - our 'legitimate interests' are to support Club Members and the Register community generally by maintaining a continuous history of Triple-M cars and particularly those that have survived. The cars themselves are not data subjects, but anybody who is identifiable as a current owner of them is a data subject. So too is anybody else whose name is recorded on our register as a former owner.
Once we have received guidance from the main Club the Register will publish a formal statement of our GDPR policy and principles and this will be available at an appropriate juncture on our website and in other publications. It will set out in broad terms what personal data the Register holds, why we hold it, what we do with it and the arrangements we have in place to ensure the security and privacy of that data.
We will also be contacting everyone whom we believe may hold or process personal data relevant to the Register that falls within the ambit of the GDPR, to ascertain the basis on which they do so. The contacts will include:
- Our own committee
- Our Registrars
- Event organisers
- People who hold subscription lists
The GDPR's aim is, quite rightly, the safeguarding of individuals' rights to have their personal data correctly and securely recorded and the right to privacy where they so wish.
The Register's aim is that we should apply the Regulations responsibly and proportionately and in a way that should not undermine the 'legitimate interests' principle under which we operate.
The GDPR provisions are complex but we believe that, sensibly managed, they could improve the quality of the personal data we hold and this will be to the general benefit of current and future owners of Triple-M cars.
