This Policy describes our current practices with regard to Personal Information collected by us from you. The term “Personal Information” refers to information about you personally, which, from time to time, you will be asked to submit (e.g. name and email address) in order to receive or use services on our website.
As a result of changes in the law and technology, our practices will change over time. When this happens, we will post the changes on our website as soon as is practicable and, therefore, we encourage you to check the site frequently. We will always deal with your Personal Information fairly and in accordance with your instructions.
Use of Personal Information
We will always abide by the Data Protection Act 1998 and when we ask you for Personal Information, we will tell you the purposes for which we will process that information. Such purposes include the following:
- maintaining our membership database
- contacting you with information pertinent to your membership or application for membership and details of events and other matters which we think will be of interest to you
- marketing and market research
- internal use to help us improve our services and to help resolve any problems.
This site may indicate that your information may be used to allow us to contact you for “service and administration purposes”. This means that we may contact you in relation to the Services you wish to receive, for example, to provide you with password reminders or to notify you that the particular service has been suspended for maintenance.
Any information you provide to us will only be used by us. However, your information may be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law.
We will hold your Personal Information within our systems for as long as you are a member of the club. After you cease to be a member the information will be retained for a period of at least twelve months. We will ensure that all your Personal Information is held securely.
