Storing Your Personal Data


We take appropriate measures to ensure that any personal data are kept secure, including security measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way

We limit access to your personal data to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

Payment is handled separately, and securely, through the payment processor you have selected during checkout (“Payment Processor”). Your payment card details are never collected by Us

If you want to find out more about how the Payment Processor processes your personal data, you can refer to their own privacy notice. We may via our Payment Processor ask that payment card details or direct debit mandates you provide as part of a membership application, joining fee or subscription fee payment obligation is stored for the purpose of processing your application, initiating membership and collecting joining and membership fees including renewals. This information may be stored for later use whilst you are on any membership waiting list. We will store this data in accordance with our legal obligations and only for so long as permitted in each case under applicable law

You may choose to opt out of us holding your payment information. If you do we may request further payment details in order to complete your membership application and for you to pay any joining or membership fees or to pay for goods and services provided by Us.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where We are legally required to do so.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although We will do our best to protect your personal data, We cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the website/app; any transmission is at your own risk. Once We have received your information, We will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

The website/app and communications from us (including social media messaging) may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and terms of use and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies and terms of use. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

Keeping your personal data up to date

If your personal details change you may update them by or by contacting Us using the contact details below. If you have any questions about how We use data collected which relates to you, please contact Us by sending a request by email to the contact details below.

We will endeavour to update your personal data within seven (7) working days of any new or updated personal data being provided to Us, in order to ensure that the personal data We hold about you is as accurate and up to date as possible.

Where we store your personal data

The data that We collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ('EEA'). We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is held securely and in accordance with this Policy

Countries outside the EEA do not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA and we have therefore ensured that any of our suppliers who may transfer your personal data outside the EEA has put in place appropriate measures to protect your data, for example by entering into a European Commission approved contract (as permitted under Article 46(5) of the General Data Protection Regulation).

We will not otherwise transfer your personal data outside the EEA or to any organisation (or subordinate bodies) governed by public international law or which is set up under any agreement between two or more countries. If you would like further information please contact Us (see ‘Contact’ below).

Retention Periods

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

By law we have to keep basic information about our members and customers (including contact, financial and transaction data) for six years after they cease being members or customers for tax purposes.

Your Rights

Under the General Data Protection Regulation, you have a number of important rights free of charge. In summary, those include rights to:

  • Access to your personal data and to certain other supplementary information that this Policy is already designed to address.
  • Require Us to correct any mistakes in your information which We hold.

How To Complain

We hope that We can resolve any query or concern you raise about our use of your information.
