REGISTRATION & DATABASE CONSENT FORM - INFORMATION

WHAT IS THIS FORM ABOUT?
On 25th May 2018, the new GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR) came into force. This means that it is no longer legal for us to hold personal details of anybody on a database without the express consent of those concerned, so our database compiled before 25th May 2018 can no longer be used. If you wish us to hold your details, you must complete this form and send it to us at the address shown at the top of page 1. If you prefer, you can scan or photograph your completed form and send it to the email address at the top of page 1.

DO I HAVE TO FILL IN EVERY BIT OF THIS FORM?
The simple answer is "no". You should only supply information that you wish us to retain. If there is any question you do not wish to answer, please leave it blank. Even better, you can cross out any part of the form that you do not wish to answer.

WHERE WILL THESE RECORDS BE KEPT?
The completed paper forms will be held in a secure location in West Yorkshire. The details from the forms will be entered into an electronic file, secured remotely. No data will be shared with any other organisation. The Liverpool Blue Coat School will hold its own database of contacts. If you wish to be included in this, please contact the School.

HOW LONG WILL THIS INFORMATION BE KEPT ON RECORD?
The information from this completed form will be stored until we receive one of the following:
* A new form from you with updated information,
* Written instructions from you to remove you from the database, or
* Notification of your death.

THE "MEMBERSHIP & SUBSCRIPTION" SECTION
Any person who has ever been a student or a teacher at The Liverpool Blue Coat School is, by default, an "Old Blue". All Old Blues are welcome to attend any business meetings or events organised by the charity. However, to be able to vote at meetings, you must be a "Subscribing Member". This means that you have paid a subscription during the current financial year (1st January to 31st December). The amount you pay is up to you, and obviously dependent on your circumstances. Most of our members pay at least £10.00 per year.

HOW DO I PAY MY SUBSCRIPTION?
There are several ways to do this:
* You can send us a cheque or postal order (payable to "Liverpool Blue Coat Old Blues' Association") to the address at the top of page 1. If you send this by post, please
include it with this form, or write your name and address on the back.
* You can bring cash to any of our business meetings, (do not send cash through the post).
* You can set up a Standing Order. The form to do this is on page 3 of this document. You can pay annually, quarterly, monthly or even weekly.
* You can transfer money online straight to our bank account. Please put your name as the "reference", and use these details:
Account name: Liverpool Blue Coat Old Blues' Association
Sort-code: 20-51-43
Account number: 20555002
Bank: Barclays

GIFT AID
If you are a UK tax payer we can claim back the tax you have paid on your donation - up to 20p for every £1.00. This will not cost you a penny. Simply tick the relevant box on page 2. Previously submitted Gift Aid forms will continue to be valid. To withdraw from this, please instruct us in writing.
