Collecting information

We collect your information when you fill in membership application or renewal forms, and competition event entry forms. You can give us your information using paper forms or online forms. The information you give us may include your contact details (name, address, telephone number, email address), personal information and identifiers (date of birth , membership number, competition licence number), and other information (vehicle details). When you give us information about another person, such as a child, parent, guardian, or emergency contact you should let that person know that you have given us the information.

Registration

In order to use extra features such as the competition tracker, you must first register with the website by completing a registration form. All details are required on the registration form. During registration, you are required to give your contact information (such as name and email address) and some demographic information so we can provide a more personalised experience of the website. This information is also used to contact you about those services on the website in which you have expressed an interest. The data we collect from you may be transferred to and stored at, a destination located outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). By providing information to the website you expressly consent to such information being transferred or stored outside of the EEA. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and although we take all reasonable steps to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of it. Any transmission of personal data to the website is at your own risk.

We might use your information to send you marketing messages, but only if you have agreed that we can do this by giving us your clear consent – and you can change your mind at any time just by letting us know.

When you use our website we may collect information about you, in particular your IP (Internet Protocol) address, by using cookies. We use this information to improve your web experience. Cookies help us to recognise you when you return to the website, and they may also help you to login securely to our web-based services.

The website might contain links to other websites such as third parties, partners, affiliates and advertisers. If you follow links to other websites please review the privacy policy for each website because we are not responsible for information you share on those website.

We may share (whether or not for payment) aggregated demographic information with our partners, clients, and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We may partner with another party to provide specific services. When you sign up for these services, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

We may also use such aggregated information and statistics for monitoring the website and Mobile Product usage in order to help us develop the website and may provide such aggregate information to third parties.

Security for your information

Your information is held securely by us. We have taken all reasonable steps, and have in place appropriate security measures, to protect your information. Your information is not transferred outside the European Economic Area.

Your rights

You may ask us not to process your information for marketing purposes.

You are entitled to a copy of the information we hold about you, and to ask us to correct any inaccuracies.

You may ask us to stop using your information, and to delete it, although we may maintain a skeleton set of your information. If you ask us to do this we will not be able to continue our contract with you.

You may make a complaint to the Information Commissioner. This privacy notice was last updated on 24 May 2018.
