Riders Branch
The Royal British Legion Scotland SCIO (003323)
New Haig House, Edinburgh

26 May 18
RIDERS BRANCH - GDPR UPDATE (as at 25 May 18)

Under the GDPR, the Riders Branch will be categorised as Data Controllers, rather than a Data Processor, as follows:-
- A Data Controller determines the purposes and means of processing personal data, and
- A Data Processor is responsible for processing personal data on behalf of a Data Controller.

Whether or not a Branch is under the RBLS SCIO umbrella, it remains a separate legal entity. As such, the Branches will process members’ personal data for their own benefit, and be categorised as Data Controllers.

You should also note that there is no exemption from being categorised as a Data Controller under the "small charities exemption".

We the branch will need to register with the ICO and pay the annual fee of £40. Some exemptions to this annual fee may apply and we will be given guidance shortly to carry out a self-assessment to determine if we are exempt.

Should we be writing to all our members now to gather consent?

Some organisations are not obliged to send out such correspondence (as they are not relying on consent as the lawful basis for processing). The Riders Branch, Legion Scotland, as part of the RBLS SCIO is processing member data under a legal obligation, we are required to keep an up to date register of members under the 2011 Regulations. Therefore, we are not relying on the members’ consent to gather and retain the membership information from the 25th May 2018. At present we don’t send direct marketing to all our members, the only and next mailing to the membership is the Legion Scotland Today magazine.

The magazine is a ‘member benefit’ and can be categorised as an administrative mailing keeping members up to date and would likely come under the lawful basis of legitimate interest, this can be interpreted that consent is not required to continue to send the magazine to our members as they receive it as a benefit of their annual membership payment. Members can of course opt out of receiving the magazine at any time and we will reflect that on the database, under their contact preferences.

The definition of the lawful basis for RBLS processing the data it holds is contained within our new Privacy Policy which you will see appearing on newsletters in future and also on other mediums of communication such as the website, social media and on emails.


The key for the Riders Branch as a whole at present is to be mindful of correct data processing procedures and to ensure that we can demonstrate good practices and good governance when it comes to processing and managing the details of our membership.

This is a fantastic opportunity for us all to review how we collect and store information including a review of how secure the information is whether filed in hard copy or electronically. It is also a good time to review what historic data you hold and whether or not all the information really needs to be kept beyond this point. We will provide branches with guidance on this as we go.

I would like to thank everyone for their patience so far whilst waiting for further details and to encourage all to embrace this change in regulation as a new opportunity to review and improve our services for our membership.
Although we wait for further guidance and clarity we as Riders Branch will as part of our Privacy Policy, do the following:
