Privacy Policy

Lions Clubs International in the British Isles (LBI) is committed to safeguarding your privacy and managed data as required by the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). The LBI website address is http://lionsclubs.co. This page sets out the LBI Privacy Policy, practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected online and how that information is used.

What information is collected from you

Two types of information are collected: information that allows us to identify specific individuals and information of a more generalised nature.

Personal information

Information of this type will only be asked for on those parts of this web site that allows transactions to be performed, in contrast to those parts of this web site that are merely informational in their function.

Information of this type will also be collected when you contact us directly by email for any reason or if you specifically request that we send you information.
