This information relates to the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into effect on 25th May 2018 which you may have seen referenced in the wider media or in emails from other organisations.

If you are content with the information that we hold, how we process it, how we currently contact you, etc, then you do not need to do anything. Unlike other organisations who may have contacted you recently, MeridianUnplugged as a membership organisation does not need you to grant consent for your information to be used and you do not need to reply or complete any forms.

The purpose of the GDPR is to provide a set of standard data protection laws across the EU, making it easier for you to understand how your data is being used and to give you greater control over its use.

MeridianUnplugged undertakes to collect and use your personal data in compliance with the GDPR. Our legal basis for processing this data is our legitimate interest as a membership organisation.

We use the data for the administration of your membership. We do not share this information with any other organisation, unless instructed to in the event of legal action arising from any message posted by you.

The only membership data held is that which you supply on registration at MeridianUnplugged which includes email address, password, display name and location. Other optional information may include birthday, occupation, interests, homepage etc. All optional information and site preferences can be removed by the member at any time.

Any concerns should be directed to webmaster@meridianunplugged.com
