How you can check what data we have about you?
If you want to see the basic membership data we hold about you, you should contact Sylvia Berville
You can contact us with a “Subject Access Request” if you want to ask us to provide you with any other information we hold about you. If you are interested in any particular aspects, specifying them will help us to provide you with what you need quickly and efficiently. We are required to provide this information to you within one month.
There is not usually a fee for this, though we can charge a reasonable fee based on the administrative cost of providing the information if a request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, or for requests for further copies of the same information.
Does the Club collect any “special categories of personal data”?
The GDPR refers to sensitive personal data as “special categories of personal data”. We do not hold any such data.
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 limited contact details. However, we do need to have at least your correct name and residential address, in order to be sure of being able to contact you.
- You may choose not to receive information emails from the Club (we do not send any out on behalf of other organisations).
- You may choose not to allow your telephone number and/or your email address to be made available to other members.
- Any of these options can be implemented for your club membership by contacting Sylvia Berville
How long we keep your 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, this will be retained.
Historical ranking lists and prize lists are required for archiving purposes and names cannot be removed from them.
What happens if a member dies?
We only keep a member’s name, after we have become aware that they have died. If requested by their next-of-kin to delete the name from our records, we will do so.
