4BR works towards GDPR deadline

4BR has been working towards meeting the full requirements of the GDPR regulations that will come into force later this month.

  General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on May 25th.

4BR has been working hard to meet its obligations for the forthcoming implementation of the EU's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into effect on May 25th.

GDPR is a new set of regulations which replaces the 1995 Data Protection Directive and brings a new set of 'digital rights' over the protection of information that is stored and used by companies.

4BR has been working on our systems and processes and will finalise them to meet these requirements by the implementation date.

Over the coming days we will be migrating the entire website to a new website hosting provider. We are also updating specific areas of the site and will be making changes to our terms of service and privacy policies.

As a result of these changes you may experience some interruptions to our services.

If you have an account with us or have subscribed to one of our services then you should expect one or more emails from us in the coming days.

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
