This Policy explains when and why we collect personal information, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

Any questions regarding this Policy and our privacy practices should be sent by email to

Personal Data:   The data we routinely collect includes membersí names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers and dates of birth for junior members.   We collect this data directly from our members when they join the Association or register for an activity through our site at Webcollect.

Why?   We use membersí data for the administration of your membership, the communication of information, and the organisation of events.

Who is it shared with?   Your NLB membership data is passed on to the BBKA, of which you become a member when you join NLB.   Your personal data is not passed on by us to any other organisations other than the Bee Disease Insurance scheme (BDI), membership of which is a benefit of BBKA.

How is your data stored?   We use Webcollect as our data processor for this purpose.   Any information that is stored remotely is stored in compliance with the GDPR.   The Privacy Policy of Webcollect is available on

Who has access to your data?   Members of the committee of NLB have access to membersí data to allow them to carry out their legitimate tasks for the organisation.

What is the legal basis for collecting this data?   NLB collects personal data that is necessary for the purposes of its legitimate interests as a membership organisation representing Beekeepers.

How you can check what data we have about you?   If you want to see the basic membership data we hold about you, please check your details on the where we hold the data you have supplied.   For any further information you should contact the membership secretary at

How can you ask for data to be removed, limited or corrected?   There are various ways in which you can limit how your data is used.

You could maintain your Association membership with your correct name but with limited contact details.   However, we do need to have at least one method of contacting you.   You could for example simply maintain an up-to-date email address, but of course this would limit what we and the BBKA are able to provide you with in the way of written information, so you would not be able to get the BBKA News delivered in printed form or any other benefits that require a postal address.

You may choose not to receive information emails from NLB (we do not send any out on behalf of other organisations).   These options can be implemented for your Association membership by contacting

How long we keep your data for, and why?   We normally keep membersí data after they resign or their membership lapses in case they later wish to re-join for a period of three years.   However, we will delete any former memberís contact details entirely on request.
