What we're about

Welcome to the North Staffs IVC Meet Up Group.

This group has been set up to give an introduction to the North Staffs Inter Varsity Club, a social and activities group for professional & like-minded people which has been going for over 60 years and has a wide range of social events and activities each and every month, all organised and hosted by our club members.

Our Meet Up group will alert you to our weekly club nights and also one or two of the other events from the many which our full members can attend.

Just a few words about our club – we have almost 80 active members (mainly in the 50+ age group), but there are no age limits and everyone is welcome. We're always looking for new members, whether singles or couples, to join us in having a great time.

We have no limits on what we may do, and are always open to new ideas.

You can make new friends, and have the chance to do new activities you may never have experienced before. Full members of North Staffs IVC arrange a number of events every month throughout North Staffordshire and further afield. There is a wide range to choose from and if there is something particular which you would like to do, you can become a member of the IVC and host an event yourself! Come along to one of our club nights for further information and a great welcome.

The NSIVC is part of the Association of Inter Varsity Clubs, which has around 40 clubs nationally with a combined membership of over 3,500. This also gives us access to many of the events hosted by other AIVC clubs and carries further benefits such as insurance for the adventurous things we do.

Further information about North Staffs IVC can be found on our website: http://www.northstaffsivc.org.uk

PLEASE NOTE THAT NOT ALL NORTH STAFFS IVC MEMBERS ARE MEMBERS OF THIS MEETUP GROUP AND THEREFORE ATTENDANCE NUMBERS ARE INACCURATE AND ARTIFICIALLY LOW.

4. How we protect your personal data

4.1 We will not transfer your personal data outside the EU without your consent BUT we will inform you if the Club’s hosted services, website and/or email server are outside of the EU and therefore your data is held outside of the EU.

4.2 We have implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect personal data from loss, misuse, or unauthorised alteration or destruction.

4.3 Please note however that where you are transmitting information to us over the internet this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

5.2 We may pass your personal data to third parties who are service providers, agents and subcontractors to us for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (e.g. to print newsletters and send you mailings). We do this for the purpose of our legitimate interests in operating the Club and for performing our contract with you. However, we disclose only the personal data that is necessary for the third party to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own purposes. It is possible that third parties may themselves engage others (sub-processors) to process your data. Where this is the case, third parties will be required to have contractual arrangements with their sub-processor(s) that ensure your information is kept secure and not used for their own purposes.

The AIVC may use third parties to carry out the surveys but disclose only the personal data that is necessary for the third party to do so and will have a contract in place that require the third party to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own purposes.

We will review your personal data every year to establish whether we are still entitled to process it. If we decide that we are not entitled to do so, we will stop processing your personal data

6.2 We will retain your personal data in an archived form in order to be able to comply with future legal obligations e.g. compliance with tax requirements and exemptions, and the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
