What does the Club use your Personal Data for?

The Club uses the Personal Data provided to contact you directly and respond to your enquiry and to accommodate your request which will be subject to a contract. The Club holds your Personal Data on a database in order to book an event or room or to process your application for membership, to maintain and support your membership going forward.

IP addresses are logged automatically in our server log files when a user accesses the WiFi network, along with the time of the visit and the pages that were visited. We use IP addresses to calculate usage levels, diagnose server problems and administer secure WiFi and IT Services. It is in the legitimate interest of the Club to do so.

Who do we share your Personal Data with?

We may share your Personal Data with Club Committee members or Convenors for the purposes of considering bookings or applications for membership and organising Club events; IT support services who help maintain our database and IT systems; email service providers. When the Club uses third party support services we enter into a data processor agreement with them wherein they commit to maintaining confidentiality and security of your Personal Data. As some of these third-party support services are located outside the EEA, your Personal Data may be transferred outside the EEA eg to USA or Canada. Such transfers are based on the safeguard measure of an equivalency decision made by the European Commission. If an equivalency decision has not been made, the Club includes approved contract clauses in the data processor agreements which affords you the same protections for your data that exist in Europe.

How long do we keep your Personal Data for?

The Club retains your Personal Data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose we collected it for. If you are applying for membership, the Club will retain your Personal Data provided in an application form and recorded on a database for the duration of your membership plus two years and limited Personal Data (eg name, address, occupation and year of birth) for archiving and historical purposes.
