Compliance with the General Data Protection Regulations 2018


To discharge its business duties the Challenger Society for Marine Science is frequently required to gather and retain information relating to both individuals and groups, including Society members, academic partners, business associates and others with whom the Society needs to develop a relationship or otherwise interact.

The council of the Society has developed a Data Protection Policy, to clearly set out the procedures by which personal data must be collected, handled and stored to meet the Society’s data protection standards and to comply with the law.

A copy of the policy can be found and downloaded at the following link: Data Protection Policy 2018

Policy updated on 28th September 2020.


The policy clearly states the responsibilities of the Society, the members of the Council of the Society and the general membership of the Society in complying with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations 2018.
