BKA Constitution



BKA Privacy Notice

Data Protection Act 2018 – How and why we use your personal data and your rights regarding this.

A) The British Killifish Association (BKA) only collects personal data directly from its Members. We store data that includes, names, addresses, contact phone numbers, e-mail addresses and financial information.
We do not collect personal data from any other sources. We do not share personal data except in cases where we need to pursue payment default or when lawfully required to do so.
We process data so that we can maintain our obligations as an Association to:

  1. Send out Killi-News and Killifish-related materials
  2. Provide access to our website and social media groups
  3. Publish Contact details that allow our members to make contact with each other for the purpose of distributing/acquiring fish, egs and information.
  4. Maintain financial and other records required to run the Association

Points 1 and 2: we process data for ‘Contractual’ reasons as membership constitutes an agreement between the Association and its Members for certain benefits.
Point 3: we process data for a ‘Legitimate Interest’, believing that it is fundamental to the aims of the Association and Members would expect this. We understand that for a number of reasons individual Members may not wish some of their personal data to be shared in this way. We therefore also seek ‘Consent’ at the time of joining or renewing for each piece of personal data that is included. Otherwise Name, Membership number and country are all that is published.
Point 4: we store and process financial data to ensure that we can comply with ‘Legal obligations’ to account for income and expenditure and transactional records of receipts and payments.

B) We retain personal data only for as long as we require it. In most cases this will be no longer than 3 months after your membership expires. Some data, relating to financial transactions may need to be retained until the next set of accounts are accepted.

C) Under Data Protection legislation you have certain rights in relation to your personal data. Depending on certain circumstances you have the right to:

  • Be informed – about use of your personal data. This privacy notice is provided/available to all Members so that we do this.
  • Access – to the personal data we hold on you. You can do this by contacting the Data Controller of the Association, either in writing or verbally. Rectification – if personal data about you is inaccurate we must amend it
  • Erasure – if you no longer want us to have your data you can request that it be deleted. Unless there is a good reason we must do this.
  • Restrict processing – if you do not want us to process your data in certain ways, again we must have a good reason not to comply with your request.
  • Data portability – you can request that a copy of your data be provided to you or direct to another Data Controller in a format that can be easily used.
  • Object – you can object to us using your data in certain circumstances.
  • You also have rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling. We do not have any automated decision making and do not undertake profiling.
  • For further information or to access your rights you can contact the Data Protection Officer.
