Why we need your Personal Data

The reason we need your Personal Data is to be able to administer your membership and provide the membership services you are signing up for when you register with the Club. Our lawful basis for processing your Personal Data is that we have a contractual obligation to you as a member to provide the services you are registering for.

Any Special Category Personal Data we hold on you is only processed for the purposes of passing health data to coaches to allow the safe running of training sessions and matches. On occasion we may collect Personal Data from non-members (e.g. such as any non-member participant who fills in a health disclaimer or form at a taster event or someone hiring the club premises). This information will be stored for one year and then destroyed securely. We process this data on the lawful basis of consent. Therefore, we will need your explicit consent to process this data, which we will ask for at the point of collecting it.
