This document explains how we will use your information when you give your data to RHQ or sign up to a membership or subscription and your rights

Why we ask for your personal information

We want you to be part of our Regimental family throughout your career and beyond. We want to be able to contact you about Regimental events and support you if you require benevolence assistance. Your consenting to us holding your information will help us to administer any memberships and subscriptions and you can be the first to know about exciting events. If you would like us to hold your information for these purposes, please complete the form attached.

Sharing your data

The data collected is only held at RHQ. A small amount of marketing is involved, inviting you to events and supplying you with information we believe you may be interested in. If you do subscribe to publications, your address details are given to the publishers in order to send these to you. We have a strict agreement with the publishers about how they treat your information and it is only held there until the publication is distributed.

How we store your information

The personal information you consent to give us is stored on our customer relationship management database. This database is used by members of RHQ. This is a fully managed system and there are procedures and policies in place to keep your information protected from misuse in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations.

Available Memberships

Day’s Pay Giving – Serving Only

Being part of the Day’s Pay Giving programme entitles you to a host of support and financial grants.  Regimental Funds support welfare and benevolence for serving and retired members of the Regiment, their relatives and dependants.  It supports Sport and Adventurous Training and other morale and efficiency activities.  You can also join the Royal Anglian Association.

Royal Anglian Association

The Association exists to serve all members and ex-members of the Regiment.  It aims to foster comradeship within the Regimental family and promotes the charitable work of the Royal Anglian Benevolent Fund.


Any serving or former Royal Anglian Regiment member is entitled to benevolence from the Royal Anglian Benevolent Charity.  Associated charities like the Royal British Legion and SSAFA share your personal information with us so that the charity can assess eligibility for the financial assistance.  We hold this information on our secure database for 6 years to comply with the financial regulations.

How long we keep your information

Your information is kept in accordance with MOD retention policy.  If you have a subscription and pay us money every year, then we will hold your data for 6 years after this service has stopped.  If you have consented for us to contact you about future events, then we will maintain your record until you tell us you would like us to delete it.

Your rights

You have the right to see the information that we hold on you at any time, by submitting a Subject Access Request (SAR) in writing by RHQ’s Data Protection Officer (DPO) on the contact details below.  You may also request to opt out of any of these services or have your details deleted from the database at any time, again by contacting the DPO in writing and letting us know what your preferences are.
