How can you ask for data to be removed, limited or corrected?

There are various ways in which you can limit how your data is used.

You could choose for the club to not keep details of your home address, email address or telephone numbers, although this could hamper the clubs’ attempts to inform you of important or urgent information.

  • Any of these options can be implemented for your club membership by contacting the Club’s Membership Secretary.

We keep this information for as long as you remain a member of the club. All your contact data is deleted as soon as you leave the club and are no longer a member. Historical race results, competition winners, prize lists etc are required for archiving purposes and names cannot be removed from them. Other data, such as that relating to accounting or personnel matters, is kept for the legally required period.
