Data Protection

It has been a very big task to contact everyone on the museum’s various emailing lists to obtain the necessary permission.

If you’re receiving the newsletter, it’s because you have agreed to receive it.  If you know someone who would like to receive the newsletter electronically but isn’t getting one at the moment, please ask them to email info@thebowesmuseum.org.uk to be added to the list. 

The WWI project website was set up years before GDPR and its implications came onto the scene.  At the moment it means that anyone who submits a request through the website to be added to the mailing list has to be contacted to confirm permission.  This is proving rather time-consuming and at present there’s a bit of a backlog.  So, if you hear of anyone who is stuck in the backlog, please pass on our assurances that it will all be sorted out.
