  • payment details provided by you so that the Club can receive or make payments from/to you
  • data relating to your physical or mental health in order that the Club can provide suitable facilities where possible and / or for safety reasons

Purposes for Processing Personal Information

DSPC’s legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend upon the nature of the personal information concerned and the specific context in which the Club collects it.

Unless the Club has a legal obligation to collect your personal information it will only do so where it has your consent to so do, where it needs the personal information in order to communicate with you and for normal Club functions, or where the processing is in the Club’s legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.

Legal Purposes

DSPC may use personal information if it is necessary for complying with laws and regulations, including collecting and disclosing personal information as required by law, under judicial authorisation, or to exercise or defend the Club’s legal rights.

Legitimate Interest

DSPC may also collect and use personal information when it is necessary for other legitimate purposes, such as to help the Club conduct its business more effectively and efficiently e.g. CCTV images for general security management for monitoring the safety and security of Club members and its property.

DSPC may also process your personal information to investigate violations of law or breaches of the Club’s own internal policies.

DSPC may also collect and process personal information where it considers it necessary for the Club’s legitimate interest.

Sharing of Personal Information

DSPC takes care to allow access to personal information only to those who require such access to perform their tasks and duties in relation to the provision of services to the Club and to third parties who have a legitimate purpose for accessing it to support these purposes.

DSPC may exceptionally permit a third party to access personal information and in such cases will implement appropriate measures to ensure the information is used in a manner consistent with this Notice and that the security and confidentiality of the information is maintained.

Transfers to Third-Party Service Providers

In addition, DSPC may need to make certain personal information available to third parties who provide services to it. DSPC will only do so on a “need to know” basis with appropriate security measures in place in accordance with applicable data privacy law.

Transfers to Other Third Parties

DSPC may also disclose personal information to third parties on other lawful grounds, including compliance with its legal obligations, where necessary to abide by law, regulation or contract, or to respond to a court order, administrative or judicial process, including, but not limited to, a subpoena, government audit or search warrant in response to lawful requests by public authorities (including for national security or law enforcement purposes) or to defend itself against potential, threatened or actual litigation.

Data Retention Periods

Personal information will be stored in accordance with applicable laws and kept for as long as needed to carry out the purposes described in this Notice or as otherwise required by applicable law.
