We require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our affairs and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.

How long do we retain your information?

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary to carry out our obligations in relation to your membership, or as long as is set out in any relevant agreement between us. Where your club membership lapses, your information will be securely kept for a period of two years, after which your information will be deleted.
