Clubs and Syndicates
Summary of benefits:
- Once the club is affiliated, each member of the club is covered by the BASC insurance and will receive their own membership card.
- All members are covered under the BASC insurance policy, both when they are shooting with the club or syndicate and anywhere else. Cover is world-wide but excludes Canada and North America.
- All beaters, pickers up or anyone else helping officially with club or syndicate activities will be covered under the Employer Liability cover provided they are acting under instruction from a club or syndicate member.
- Your occasional and official guests can also be included temporarily as insured persons, provided their full names and addresses are recorded before commencement of any insured activity – subject to a maximum of 50% of the guns on any one day.
- You will receive copies of an official insurance cover note from BASC, that you can give to whoever you lease your shooting rights from. Further copies can be sent free of charge.
- The insurance cover includes third party liability for vehicles not compulsorily registered for road use and temporary premises hired by the club.
- Cover for dogs injured on shoots from affiliated clubs will automatically apply where there has been some negligence of members during the shoot. The cover will be limited to £2,500 per incident. So, if a dog is injured on your shoot please email the claims team.
The General Data Protection Regulations for clubs and syndicates.
Where shooting clubs and syndicates are concerned there is no definitive answer to the question, ‘Do we have to register under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)?’
However, in most cases the answer is likely to be ‘no’. The exemption clause from registering with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for clubs and syndicates would be “Not for Profit”. This exempt purpose is intended for small clubs, voluntary organisations, church administration and some charities. For further information click here.
‘Personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’) who can be directly or indirectly be identified by reference to an identifier such as name, identification number, location data or online identifier. GDPR can apply to automated personal data and manual filing systems.
‘Processing’ means any operation or set of operations which is performed on the personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
‘Controllers’ determine the purposes and means of processing personal data.
To find out whether you are a ‘Controller’ you can take the ICO’s self-assessment questionnaire here
‘Processors’ are responsible for processing ‘personal data’ on behalf of a ‘Controller’.
What to do when processing:
When processing ‘personal data’ it should be:
- Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner.
- Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes.
- Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary.
- Accurate and where necessary kept up to date.
- Kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which those data are processed.
- Processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data.
