Purpose of processing your Personal Data: We process your data so that we can carry out the service(s) that you request from us. Examples of services include:

  • Applying to become a Member, requesting to receive emails about Club events and to receive Bulletins and any other information sent out to the entire membership, and requested inclusion of your name, home address & telephone number and email address on our Membership List that is provided to all who have given permission to be on that list. For such services, we treat the Legal Basis for processing your data as ‘Contractual’ for application to become a Member as this requires payment of an annual subscription.

We will keep your Personal Data for as long as we are obliged to in order to fulfil any obligations relating to financial auditing.
