If we suspect a breach of security we shall take steps to inform the individuals affected in a reasonable time and review our procedures to see if steps can be taken to improve our data handling.

Note that most of the data we hold on normal Club members, speakers and judges is not sensitive or is generally available through multiple public sources.
