To deal with your requests and enquiries.
To contact you for reasons related to your enquiry.

7. YOUR RIGHTS AND FINDING OUT WHAT INFORMATION THE CLUB HOLDS ABOUT YOU
All individuals who are the subject of personal data held by us are entitled to:
ask what information we hold about them and why
ask how to gain access to it
be informed of how to keep it up to date
have inaccurate personal data corrected or removed
prevent us from processing information or request that it is stopped if the processing of such data is likely to cause substantial, unwarranted damage or distress to the individual or anyone else
require us to ensure that no decision which significantly affects an individual is solely based on an automated process for the purposes of evaluating matters relating to him/her, such as conduct or performance
be informed what we are doing to comply with our obligations under the Data Protection Act.
This right is subject to certain exemptions which are set out in the Act.
Under the Data Protection Legislation, you can ask to see any personal information that we hold about you. Such requests are called Subject Access Requests.
Subject Access Requests should be made in writing to the secretary of the club.
Fees We will not charge a fee for this. However, we will charge a reasonable fee when a request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, particularly if it is repetitive. We will also charge a reasonable fee to comply with requests for further copies of the same information. The fee will be based on the administrative cost of providing the information.
Timescales We aim to comply with requests for access to personal information as quickly as possible. In most cases we will be able to provide a copy of the information within one month of receipt of your written request. In order to do this we may ask you to provide additional details about the source, location and timeframe of the information you are requesting. We may on occasions extend the period of compliance by a further two months where requests are complex or numerous. If this is the case, we will inform the individual within one month of the receipt of the request and explain why the extension is necessary.
Manifestly unfounded or excessive requests Where requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because they are repetitive, we may:
charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information; or
refuse to respond.
If we refuse to respond to a request, we will explain why and inform you of your right to complain to the supervisory authority and to a judicial remedy without undue delay and at the latest within one month.
How will the information be provided? We will verify the identity of the person making the request, using reasonable means. Where the data is stored on the membership system you will be provided with direct access to your data via that system. Where the data is published on the club website, you will be provided with the links to the website.
Requests for large amounts of personal data If your request requires us to process a large quantity of information, we will ask you to specify the information the request relates to. Rights and freedoms of others The right to obtain a copy of information or to access personal data should not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others. If by providing the information requested we would have to disclose information relating to or identifying a third party, we will only do so provided the third party gives consent, otherwise we may edit the data to remove the identity of the third party. Unless we are under a legal obligation to release data, or the individual has given us permission, personal information will only be released to the individual to whom it relates. The disclosure of such information to anyone else without their consent may be a criminal offence. Making a Subject Access Request If you would like to make a Subject Access Request, please contact the club secretary. You will also need to provide two forms of identification, for example, driving licence, utility bill or passport and, if appropriate, any particulars about the source, location and timeframe of the information you are requesting.
