GDPR Data Protection

As from 25th May 2018 the new GDPR regulate how we can collect, store and use data relating to our members and the public. Taking advice from various regulating and advising bodies, we have put in place procedures to comply with this.


Our members have received advice on what data we need to hold on them, and sign to give permission accordingly.


No written data is collected or held on general members of the public, except for community members who hold a relationship with the Band for purposes of community events and bookings. Those community members affected will be asked to give confirmation that they agree to us retaining their email address, etc, for this purpose.

See our 'Privacy Statement for community or public' here.  


Our 'Public Images Statement' may be relevant to general members of the community. SCB like to share images of our events on our Facebook and website, etc, as well as sharing certain events with local publications. We believe that it is important for us to record moments in the Band’s history through photos and videos of events, such as rehearsals, concerts and social events.  This helps us to meet our charitable objectives as we are able to promote concerts and publicise the Band to attract players and audience. We consider these ‘Legitimate Interests’ under the GDPR guidelines. Whilst we will work to limit capture of identifiable images of the general public, where we do have these we may retain them for the promotional purposes stated.

See our 'Public Images Statement' here.


We encourage the public to 'like' our facebook page whereby you will be able to keep updated with our events and concerts, and can manage what you receive from us in your own settings. Band members can choose to join the 'closed' facebook group where we share our own communications relating to rehearsals and such like.



For any queries about our Data Policy, or to ask us to adjust/remove your data (or obscure an image of you), contact our Data Protection Officer.
