Re: GDPR : What are the implications for LMS systems ?

He appeals to the ICO, citing Section 36, which decides in his favour on the grounds that his personal data is now being used for a collective purpose (informing third parties) rather than for the singular domestic purpose to which he'd assented (playing a chess game) Would this judgement apply als...

You still have three months to move to somewhere without an extradition treaty. Ecuador has nice weather.
I asked Julian about Ecuadorian weather. All he can see is grey skies and police persons.

Re: GDPR : What are the implications for LMS systems ?

GPDR is something about Member States in EU which we are leaving? The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the wa...

GDPR : What are the implications for LMS systems ?

On ​25 May 2018 The GDPR will replace the current Directive and will be directly applicable in all Member States without the need for implementing national legislation. What are the implications for Leagues that have implemented an LMS ? I feel that my head has moved closed to the EU chopping block !

But we don't need to be told that, do we? Apart from the Democrat bit, since he was a lifelong Republican until last year.

And we all know how wrong Mr. Churchill was to change affiliation !

If you ask "which form of chess benefits most from being played at the weekend?", you don't come up with local league chess as the answer.
Who has provided this answer who wishes league chess to flourish and grow ?

Re: New Berkshire Prospect

I spoke with his Dad at the London Junior. He was very helpful in providing pro bono translation services when I spoke to the other French players in the tournament I was arbiting. :) Their French chess club is open daily, and has full-time paid staff, supported by a local government funding. He ge...

One of the stand out grades from the recently published list is that of

Rajat Makkar, aged 10.

I suspect that is quite good amongst ten year olds in the UK.

His Fide affiliation is FRA.

Back to earth with a bump : what am I thinking ?

Liam Blanc has risen from his estimate of 144 to 210. Again, not too shabby.

Insurance for teaching in schools

My usual insurer which provides my public liability cover has increased the renewal premium in the standard cynical manner that insurers tend to do.

Could I ask anyone to name their insurance provider so as I could obtain an alternative quotation ?

I use "Simply Business" right now.

The game Stanisz - Murphy may well be most exciting of the final round.

Anyone seen 12 Rd4 previously ?

Re: Question about membership

Am I missing something here or is this just a case of the ECF billing a graded event for the relevant fees in accordance with what is now an established policy? I saw the contempt with which a suggestion that this should be raised with the ECF office was treated on a near identical thread. Yes, I w...

Question about membership

HJCA has received an invoice from ECF for the HJCA Congress of October 2017.

If I was to encourage all the non-ECF members referred to in the invoice to become Junior (SIlver) members would that then affect the amount of the invoice?

Thanks !

Err.. Why not just ring the ECF office?
Are you impersonating Alex H. Micheal ?

I was hoping he would suggest that before anyone else.
