PTA membership - 
get connected!

We share our news, events, and invitations with ALL parents at BBIS, but as a member, you are the most informed, and you are our "base" to call upon for help, when needed.  Members also have voting rights at our end-of-year General Meeting.  

So, if you'd like to join our general PTA WhatsApp chat click here.

PTA Privacy Policy - GDPR

We are required to post information about data protection on our website!  Here is the information:

Privacy Policy for BBIS PTA


Under data protection law, individuals have a right to be informed about how the PTA uses any personal data that we hold about them. We comply with this right by providing ‘privacy notices’ (sometimes called ‘fair collection notices’) to individuals where we are processing their personal data.
 

This privacy notice explains how we collect, store and use personal data.

 

The personal data we hold
 

Personal data that we may collect, use, store and share:
 

  • Name and address

  • Other contact information including email addresses and telephone numbers
     

Why we use this data
 

We use this data to:
 

  • Compile a list of PTA members to invite them to the yearly general meeting or extraordinary meetings (if needed)

  • Contact individuals for support and help at school fundraising events

  • Compile a list of attendees and year group for school fundraising events

  • Compile a list of participants of parent clubs

 

Our legal basis for using this data

We only collect and use personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we process it where:
 

  • We need it to perform a fundraising event in the school’s interest

  • We have obtained consent to use it in a certain way

 

Where we have obtained consent to use personal data, this consent can be withdrawn at any time. We will make this clear when we ask for consent, and explain how consent can be withdrawn.
 

Some of the reasons listed above for collecting and using personal data overlap, and there may be several grounds which justify our use of this data.
 

Collecting this information
 

While the majority of information we collect is mandatory, there is some information that can be provided voluntarily.

Whenever we seek to collect information from you or your child, we make it clear whether providing it is mandatory or optional. If it is mandatory, we will explain the possible consequences of not complying.
 

How we store this data
 

We keep all electronic personal information on a secured database for the whole academic year that it is collected in. At the end of each academic year all data will be deleted from the secure database. Any paper based information e.g. raffle tickets, will be stored securely and confidentially disposed of. If you want a copy of the information we hold on you please email pta@bbis.de.
