The information held by CBAI will be updated by your club, if you provide updates.

Scoring data comes directly from the results of the club games in which you play.

How is your data stored?

This information is mainly stored in digital form on computers and in the form of written documents stored at our club storage in the TCCBC and with the club secretary. We use Bridgewebs as our data processor for this purpose. Any information that is stored remotely is stored in compliance with the GDPR

Who is responsible for ensuring compliance with the relevant laws and regulations?

Under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) we do not have a statutory requirement to have a Data Protection Officer. The person who is responsible for ensuring Ballyroan Bridge Club discharges its obligations under the GDPR is our Club Secretary.

Who has access to your data?

Members of the committee of Ballyroan Bridge Club have access to members’ data in order for them to carry out their legitimate tasks for the Club and CBAI.

What is the legal basis for collecting this data?

Ballyroan Bridge Club collects personal data that is necessary for the purposes of its legitimate activities as a membership organisation and participant in the internationally recognised and regulated, competitive mind sport of bridge.

For some data, such as that relating to payment of membership fees or for club organised events the basis for its collection and retention is to comply with our legal obligations.

How you can check what data we have about you?

Under Article 15 of the GDPR, you have a right to obtain a copy, of any information relating to you kept on computer or in a structured manual filing system or intended for such a system by any organisation. All you need to do is to write to the Club Secretary and request, under the GDPR, a copy of the personal data it holds in relation to you.

 Bridge Club collect any “special” data?

The GDPR refers to sensitive personal data as s “special categories of personal data”. 

We do not record any special categories of personal data. The only data we record relates to the disabilities of members who have explicitly requested it to be recorded for the purpose of giving them stationary positions in our competitions (which we aim to do wherever feasible). If you wish to change this data on your record you can do so at any time by contacting the Club Secretary.

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 maintain your club membership with your correct name but with limited contact details. However, we do need to have at least one method of contacting you. You could for example simply maintain an up-to-date email address.
  • You do not need to provide us with your date of birth unless you wish to enter age-limited (junior or seniors) events.
  • You may choose not to receive information emails from Bridge Club or CBAI (we do not send any out on behalf of other organisations).
  • Any of these options can be implemented for your club membership by contacting the Club Secretary.

How long we keep you data for and why?

We normally keep members’ data after they resign or their membership lapses in case they later wish to re-join. However, we will delete any former member’s contact details entirely on request.

Since underlying statistical data, like scores from bridge games, continues to be necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected and processed, results from events used for the Master Points Scheme are not deleted Ballyroan Bridge Club or CBAI although they will no longer be attributed to a player who does not want their data to be kept.

Historical ranking lists and prize lists 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.

What happens if a member dies?

We normally keep members’ information after they die. If requested by their next-of-kin to delete it we will do so, on the same basis as when requested to remove data by a former member.
