Data protection

WGGB is registered under the Data Protection Act (1998). We take your privacy very seriously.

The information collected by the form in the Join section of this website is stored on the WGGB Membership Database and only made available to staff or officers of WGGB.

All information you provide via the Find A Writer submissions process will be displayed publically on the WGGB website, so you should not enclose information that you do not want to be made public.

The Why I’m a Member, My Life as a Writer and Contract Vetting forms on this website require you to add an email address, or other contact information/personal data. These are for office-use only and will only be made available to staff or officers of WGGB in the event that they need to contact you with queries on these forms. In certain circumstances we may need to pass on contracts you have submitted, plus your personal data, to external contract vetters to ensure you get the best possible advice.

Membership subscription payments taken on this website via PayPal and Sage Pay are processed on the secure servers of these agencies, which also have their own Privacy Policies. For further information, go to the  PayPal and Sage Pay websites.



This website uses technical processes to protect your personal data against unauthorised or unlawful processing, and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal data. Payments taken through Sage Pay and PayPal are done so through these organisations’ own secure servers.
