What Personal Data does BABC collect?
The data we routinely collect includes members’ names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and EBU numbers. We collect this data directly from our members when they join the club.
We will also keep information relating to disciplinary matters and sanctions.
We collect the scores from games you play, which are displayed on our results pages and used in maintaining the EBU’s National Grading Scheme (NGS) and the Master Point scheme.
What is this personal data used for?
We use members’ data for the administration of your membership; the communication of information, and the organisation of events. We provide your data to the English Bridge Union (EBU) for their use as explained in the section below.
Who is your data shared with?
Your membership data is passed on to the EBU, of which you become a member when you join BABC if you are not already a member. The EBU shares data with its associated charity, English Bridge Education and Development (EBED), since it shares offices and data systems with them, and also with SCBA or any other county that you may have nominated as your county of allegiance.
Information from your results is also passed on to the EBU for use in its master point and NGS schemes, unless you have chosen to have your NGS grade kept private, and this may also be used for stratification and handicap purposes. Information from results is also passed to ECATS when participating in ECATS organised events.
Some of your data will be available for use by Bridgewebs acting as a Data Processor on our behalf. They are not free to pass this on to other organisations that are not connected with BABC.
Your personal data is not passed on by us to organisations other than those indicated above, whether or not connected with bridge. Neither is it shared with any other individual, whether or not a club member, without your prior consent.
Where does this data come from?
Data for most of our members comes from them when they join BABC or when they update their information either directly or via their EBU record.The information held by the EBU may be updated by your club if you have given it permission to change your record. You can change this permission on My EBU by going to Account -> My Details.
If you are a direct member of the EBU, you will instead have provided your personal data directly to us when you joined BABC or when you updated your record with us.
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, password protected, on the Club Secretary’s computer, and in the form of written documents stored at the relevant committee member’s home. Bridgewebs is used as our data processor for uploading results.
Any data which is stored remotely is held in compliance with 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 BABC discharges its obligations under the GDPR is the Club Secretary.
Who has access to your data?
Members of the committee of BABC have access to members’ data on application to the Secretary in order for them to carry out their legitimate tasks for the club.
What is the legal basis for collecting this data?
BABC collects personal data that is necessary for the purposes of its legitimate interests as a membership organisation and participant in an internationally recognised and regulated, competitive mind sport.
For some data, such as that relating to financial matters, the basis for its collection and retention is to comply with our legal obligations.
Similarly, staff data is kept in compliance with our legal obligations.
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 the Secretary, Bookham Afternoon Bridge Club.
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 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 BABC collect any "special" data?
The GDPR refers to sensitive personal data as “special categories of personal data”.
We do not record any such special data. Of these categories, 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 Secretary, BABC.
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.
· If you wish you could become an “anonymous” member. This would involve you having a pseudonym with an EBU number under which you would play. If you do this however, you would not be able to access any EBU membership benefits such as the magazine or playing in EBU tournaments.
· 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, but of course this would limit what we and the EBU are able to provide you with in the way of written information, so you would not be able to get English Bridge in printed form or any other benefits that require a mailing address.
· You do not need to provide us with your date of birth unless you wish to enter age-limited (junior or seniors) events or gain concessions based on age.
· If you do not want your NGS grade to be public, you may choose for it to be kept private. You can change this option as often as you wish.
· You may choose not to appear in master point promotions lists.
· You may choose not to receive information emails from BABC; 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 Secretary, BABC.
· Any of these options can be implemented for your EBU membership by logging on to My EBU, going to Account –> My Details and editing your record there, either to correct erroneous data or to delete information you do not wish us to have. If you need any assistance with this you may contact the Office Manager email@example.com
How long we keep your data for, and why?
We normally delete data after the death or resignation of a member, or their membership lapses.
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 NGS are not deleted by BABC or the EBU 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 do not normally keep members’ information after they die. (But see above, in relation to accounting and personnel matters).
Can you download your data to use it elsewhere?
Your session data that is held by the EBU can be downloaded as a csv spreadsheet. You can do this by logging on to My EBU and in your Sessions list, clicking on “Download as CSV”. To access data held by BABC please contact the Secretary.
