This message only applies to Northallerton Ramblers members.
As you will probably be aware from the news, there is a new regulation regarding personal data held by organisations and this includes Ramblers. The effect of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulation so far as Rambler members are concerned is that we all have to positively opt-in to how we want to be contacted. The GDPR regulation is to protect your personal data. This will be email address, telephone number(s) and postal address. Once it comes into effect on the 25th May, Ramblers HQ and Northallerton Ramblers may only contact you by the means you have defined in the Contact Preferences which are part of your account. We will have to remove you from our Email list and also from the Regular Walkers List unless you enable these preferences.
To do this you must login on http://www.ramblers.org.uk/ using your email and password you set when creating the account. If you cant remember your password there is a “Forgotten your password” link on the Ramblers login screen you can click to reset your password.
If you haven't created an account you are recommended to do so.
Once you have logged in, Click on My account and then Update profile and check your Contact preferences. We recommend that you tick both the I would like to be contacted by email and the I would like to be contacted by phone settings. Also check that the email address and the Home phone and Mobile numbers are correct. You don't have to input both numbers but remember that Mobile numbers are useful if there are last minute changes to a walk as has happened recently.
If you have any difficulty with this, please contact me or our Chairman Tony Williams.
Ian Hobson, Webmaster, Northallerton Ramblers
