Privacy Policy for Members and Supporters

The Roadwater Players Amateur Dramatic Society is committed to protecting your personal information. This privacy policy relates to our use of any personal information we collect from you when you become a member of the Society or you are one of its supporters. Members pay a membership fee when they are involved with or are supporting the activities of the Society. This involvement includes (but is not limited to) performing, scenery construction, costumes, properties, publicity, front of house, stage management, sound and lighting, direction, choreography and music. Supporters of the Society include lapsed members, as such members normally wish to keep in contact with the Society and may wish to renew their membership at a future date.

The Personal Information We Collect From You

We collect basic personal details from you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, subscriptions and dates paid. For members we may also take your photograph and ask for your biography.

How We Use the Information

We will use your information to send you newsletters, letters or e-mails to inform you of General Meetings, Shows, Rehearsals, Production Meetings and similar events that are likely to be of interest to you. Your name, and possibly photograph and biography, may appear in our show programmes and newsletters, but we will never use your photograph without your permission. Your information may also be shared with Committee Members (of the Roadwater Players). This use is in our ‘legitimate interest’ as outlined in the 2018 General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). You will be aware that our show programmes are public documents and that our newsletters are shared amongst our membership and supporters. We will not share your information with other third parties without your consent.


We put in place reasonable security measures to protect against any unauthorised access or damage to, or disclosure or loss, of your information.

Your Rights

Please let us know if your information changes as it is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and up to date.

We will keep your information whilst you are a paid up member of the Society and indefinitely after you are no longer an active member or supporter of the Roadwater Players Amateur Dramatic Society. We keep your information because you may resume your connection with us and take part again in our activities. However, you can ask us to remove your personal information from our records at any time and we will do so and stop sending you any further communications.

You have the right to request a copy of all the personal details we hold about you in a Subject Access Request. To do this simply contact the current Secretary of the Roadwater Players. We will then take all reasonable steps to confirm your identity before providing you with details of any personal information we may hold about you.

Changes to This Policy

We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time; for example, to keep it up to date or to comply with legal requirements. If there will be any significant changes made to the use of your personal data in a manner different to that stated, we will seek your permission first.

How to Contact Us

For any questions or concerns relating to this privacy policy or our data protection practices, or to make a Subject Access Request, please contact either the current Secretary or current Chairman and they will try to assist you.
