3. How we protect your personal data


3.1 We will not transfer your personal data outside the EU without your consent


3.2 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


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


3.4 For any payments which we take from you online we will use a recognised online secure payment system


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


4. Who else has access to the information you provide us?


4.1 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 we are required to do so by law or as set out in the table above or in paragraphs 4.2 and 4.3 below


4.2 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)


We do this for the purpose of our legitimate interests in operating the Club and for performing our contract with you. 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. It is possible that third parties may themselves engage others (subprocessors) to process your data. Where this is the case third parties will be required to have contractual arrangements with their sub-processor(s) that ensure your information is kept secure and not used for their own purposes


5. How long do we keep your information?


5.1 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 it is in the Clubs’ legitimate interest to do so or for as long 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


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