PRIVACY POLICY

The General Data Protection Regulations apply from May 2018. As part of this, we are required to explain to our members what personal data we hold, what we do with it, and their rights to access or change that data.

The Club stores and uses personal data given to us by members as part of their joining or membership renewal. This personal data includes only names and contact details, along with records of membership payments or other donations to the Club and of any contributions to Club meetings.

We also record the names (or nicknames) and scores of all those who play bridge on any particular date, including visitors. This is visible to all who visit the Results website page. As a condition of playing at the Club, players give the Club permission to publish their names (or nicknames) and results on the website. Players can choose the name by which they wish to be known when setting up the electronic scoring system.

We do not share personal data with any other organisations. Personal data is held securely and is only available to Committee members.

We will use blind carbon copy procedure (bcc) when emailing the membership, so that individual email addresses are not made public.

Club members have the right to see what data we hold on them, and for any of that data to be corrected, or for historic data no longer required by law to be removed. All requests of this type should be sent to the Chair who acts as the Data Controller for the Club.

COOKIES

This site uses some unobtrusive cookies to store information on your computer. It uses these, as most websites do, to help us improve the website and provide you with the best experience we can. A cookie is a small file, which is placed on your computer’s hard drive, that helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used and typical user paths through the site. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you but it does capture the user’s IP address.

As a condition of use of this site, all users give permission for Craven Arms Bridge Club to use its access logs in this way.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This will mean, however, that your use of our site is not recorded and makes it more difficult for us to improve.

Any information gathered using cookies is not shared with any third parties.
