Data Protection Policy

Essex Metropolitan County Netball Association

Data Protection Policy


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25th May 2018. Whilst technically it only applies to professional or commercial activities, it is not certain whether it would apply to Essex Metropolitan County Netball Association (EMNA).   In view of the level of data EMNA receives, it is considered, as a matter of good practice, that EMNA should adopt a Data Protection Policy and Privacy Notice in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR, both of which are available on the EMNA website .

EMNA collects and retains data only for specific purposes of the administration of EMNA, which includes but is not limited to membership, competitions, education, events, development and county/satellite academies. EMNA does not use the data nor pass it on to third parties for marketing purposes or to create personality or user profiles, the exception being the data provided to England Netball in respect of which we would refer you to England Netball’s own Data Protection Policy
