The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA).  The GDPR primarily aims to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for business by unifying the regulation within the EU.  The SBU, irrespective of its legal form/persona, must conform, by virtue of being an organisation engaged in economic activity.  The GDPR has been incorporated into UK law in the form of the Data Protection Law 2018. and continues as is despite the UK's departure from the EU. This March 2021 the SBU Privacy Policy has been updated to reflect the move towards the increased availability of online bridge and in general terms the increased reliance on electronic data to manage the activities of a membership organisation. 

Please find the most recent SBU Privacy Policy below, and please note that it will evolve as our reliance on playing bridge on various internet bridge platforms increases.
