1 Why do you need to process my data?

The law now states that we are only able to process personal data if we have valid reasons to do so. Anyone who becomes a member of this Club or books its facilities (courts or Clubhouse) will need to provide certain information including, but not restricted to, name, contact and payment details where needed. We will use this information to process and administrate your membership or booking.

2 Who can see my data?

The Membership Secretary will be able to see your membership data. This information is stored on a password protected computer that has security software.

Team captains will use the contact details provided to them by the Membership Secretary to administrate team matches and events as the coaching staff.  Again, these will be stored on password protected, secure computers or on lockable mobile phones/androids.

Court booking is administrated by the LTA’s Clubspark system and will be subject to their GDPR guidelines. Schools and organisations’ details for court bookings (not completed via Clubspark) will be held by the membership secretary, who administrates these partner bookings, again stored on a password protected system with security software.

3 How long will you keep my data for?

For as long as you are a member at which point you will be deleted from our records. Alternatively, you can legally withdraw your consent for us to hold your data at any time and we will comply. This is known as your ‘right to be forgotten’. However, this may affect your active membership of the Club as you would no longer receive updates and correspondence from us.

Again, information held by Clubspark is subject to their GDPR rules.
