Specifically for members of the Society

Information regarding the holding and processing of your personal data by the Oxford and Cambridge Society of The Netherlands As you may be aware, the General Data Protection Act (GDPR) will come into force on the 25th of May 2018. The GDPR obliges the Oxford and Cambridge Society of the Netherlands (the Society) to inform you of your rights and our obligations and to be able to, upon request, show to the authorities (Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens) information regarding the use of your personal data.

What personal information does the Society hold on its members? The Society’s committee holds the personal information that you provided when you became a member of the Society. The current form consists of the following questions: Name, date of birth, address, e-mail address, telephone number(s), bank number, present occupation, name of your employer, and education details, being: details of the college you attended in Oxford or Cambridge, matriculation year, and degree subject(s). Furthermore, the Society and its members may have taken photographs of you during events that you have attended.

What is the personal data used for? The committee uses your personal data to inform you about activities, to process your membership subscription and registration for events, in order to process the payments made to the society and to ensure the correctness of the financial administration.

Whose data do we process? We process the data of every member. The number of times this data is processed depends on the number of activities that a member signs up for, and on the amount of communication between a committee member and a member of the society. With regards to people who are not members, but attend events, we process their names and possibly their dietary requirements.

On what grounds do we hold your personal data? Your personal data is held based on your consent and on the necessity of having the information in order to be a member of the society. Should you no longer consent to the society using (part of) you personal data, you can let the committee know by sending an e-mail to Upon withdrawing your consent, the committee will delete your personal data or part thereof (depending on your request) within a reasonable period of time.

Where is the data stored? The personal data is stored on a drive in the Cloud that is password protected. A limited amount of personal data may also be in the e-mail accounts and telephones of committee members. A number of committee members have access to this drive. Only the members that need to have access to your data, are able to access the drive.

Who processes the data? What data is processed by what committee member, depends on their role on the committee. For example, your financial details are processed by the treasurer, and your mobile phone number is used by the committee members on WhatsApp groups that you are a member of.

Are my personal data shared with third parties? In principle they are not. In case of events organised with other organisations, such as sister societies or the venue where an event is held (e.g. the International Criminal Court, the National Archives), then your personal data that are needed for the organisation of the event, and in some cases, for security matters, will be shared with third parties. In such an event, you will be informed about your data being shared with a third party.
