PDAA encourages junior members but we are also aware of the additional burden, in terms of data protection, that this entails.

Junior members are only accepted into the Association if a parent or guardian is also a PDAA member. To help make the junior member feel part of the Association, the junior member will be sent emails from the Association (but see below).

The Junior member will not take part in any Association ballot or be able to book fishing via SuperSaaS.

Junior Member Data

When a junior member joins PDAA, he/she will be asked for the following data:

  • Name, address, date of birth
  • Passport sized photograph
  • Email address – either their own address or that of a parent or guardian (but different to the parent/guardian member’s email address)

Securing Junior Members’ Personal Data

Junior members’ personal data will be held within the Association Members’ database which is password protected and only accessed by the Officers of the Association. Junior members data will not be shared with any third party

Photographing and filming Junior members

At times, it may be advantageous for PDAA and/or the Junior Member to have photographs taken at events or during normal fishing to allow promotion of PDAA. Photographs or videos taken would be appropriate to the occasion and only used on the PDAA website or on the PDAA Facebook page.

On joining, the Junior Member and the parent/guardian will be asked for permission to use such photographs or videos in the ways described.  This consent will be asked for by the Association Secretary, by email, from the parent/guardian and the Junior Member and an email response from the parent/guardian and Junior Member will be necessary.

Sending Communications to the Junior Member

Before sending any emails to the Junior member, the parent or guardian will be asked to confirm their consent to such an activity after the membership application is received. This consent will be asked for by the Association Secretary, by email, from the parent/guardian and an email response from the parent/guardian will be necessary.

There is the absolute right for the parent/guardian or junior member to object to being sent any communications.
