What personal data we hold on our members

Personal data means any information about an individual from which that individual can be identified.  We collect, use, store and transfer some personal data of our members [and for juniors their parents or guardians].

We also ask for relevant health information, which is classed as special category personal data, for the purposes of your health, wellbeing, welfare and safeguarding. Where we hold this data it will be with the explicit consent of the member or, if applicable, the members parent or guardian.

We need to collect personal data to fulfil Club responsibilities and if you do not provide that data, we will not be able honour or administer your membership and therefore you will not be accepted as a member. 

Why we need your personal data

Our lawful basis for processing your personal data is that we have a contract obligation to you as a member to provide the services you are registering for.

We have set out below, in a table format, a description of all the ways we plan to use your personal data, and which of the legal basis we rely on to do so. We have also identified what our legitimate interests are where appropriate.

Sharing with your data with Third Parties

We may share your data with England Athletics for the purpose of registering your affiliation and or your participation as a volunteer with the Club. We may also share your data with leagues or event organisers where we are entering team events.

How long we hold your personal data

We keep personal data on our members while they continue to be a member. We delete this data 12 months after your membership expires.  The 12 months is to enable any outstanding obligations on either party to be fulfilled. You may request this deletion sooner but if this is prior to your membership expiry date, such request will mean you are no longer a member of the Club.  Where you have affiliated with England Athletics or are registered with England Athletics as a non-athlete/volunteer the personal information stored by them is subject to their privacy policy, so we advise you review that policy together with this notice. If you would like your personal data to be deleted from the England Athletics database then please contact them.

Your rights regarding your personal data

As a data subject you may have the right at any time to request access to, rectification or erasure of your personal data; to restrict or object to certain kinds of processing of your personal data, including direct marketing; to the portability of your personal data. Note, that a request for restriction or erasure, may cause the Club to be unable to meet its obligations to you and therefore, such request may mean that you are no longer a member.   

The membermojo system can be accessed here and provides members with the following facilities: 

  • Right to access – members can sign in to view their own personal data.
  • Right to rectification – members can sign in and amend their own personal data.

Other requests for changes to data should be made to the Club Secretary

As a data subject you are not obliged to share your personal data with the Club. If you choose not to share the required personal data with us, we will not be able to process or administer your membership and therefore, you will not be a member of the club. 

You should note that some of these rights, for example the right to require us to transfer your data to another service provider or the right to object to automated decision making, may not apply as they have specific requirements and exemptions which apply to them and they may not apply to personal information recorded and stored by us.  For example, we do not use automated decision making in relation to your personal data.  However, some have no conditions attached, so your right to withdraw consent or object to processing for direct marketing are absolute rights.

Whilst this privacy notice sets out a general summary of your legal rights in respect of personal information, this is a very complex area of law. More information about your legal rights can be found on the Information Commissioner’s website at

To exercise any of the above rights, or if you have any questions relating to your rights, please contact us by using the details set out in the “Contacting us” section below.
