We will never sell your personal data. We will not share your personal data with any third parties without your prior consent (which you are free to withhold) except where required to do so by law. 

We may pass your personal data to third parties who are service providers, agents and subcontractors to us for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (e.g. to print newsletters and send you mailings). However, we disclose only the personal data that is necessary for the third party to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own purposes.

How we protect your data

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination in the EEA. We will not transfer your personal data outside the EEA without your consent.

We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy. We have implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect personal data from loss, misuse, or unauthorised alteration or destruction.

Please note however that where you are transmitting information to us over email this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

We will notify you promptly in the event of any breach of your personal data which might expose you to serious risk.

Retention period

We will hold your personal data on our systems for as long as you are a member of the Club and for as long afterwards as is necessary to comply with our legal obligations. We will review your personal data every year to establish whether we are still entitled to process it. If we decide that we are not entitled to do so, we will stop processing your personal data except that we will retain your personal data in an archived form in order to be able to comply with future legal obligations e.g. compliance with tax requirements and exemptions, and the establishment exercise or defence of legal claims.

Where your membership lapses we will within a reasonable time of the lapse occurring cease actively processing and delete your data as a member but may retain your name and e-mail details for up to two years for the purpose of facilitating the renewal by you of your membership.

We securely destroy all financial information once we have used it and no longer need it.
