Membership information is processed online by Sailing Club Manager on behalf of the club. Access to the data is restricted to officers and staff responsible for subscription management. Officers responsible for sections of the club have access to the relevant contact lists. Members are asked when they join which lists they want to be on and can change their mind at any point. Facilities convenors are provided with the relevant members' subscription information so they may manage club facilities efficiently.
When a member ceases to be a member of the club, the data is retained on SCM for historical purposes and to enable accurate restoration of membership for anyone re-joining the club. However, members may request that this be erased at point of resignation or anytime thereafter.
Adults engaged in RYA training or the carers of children (under 18) who enrol on the cadet training programme are asked to provide relevant medical information and an emergency contact. Your consent to provide the medical information has to be freely given and you can withdraw consent at any time. This information is shared with the course instructors. Data related to members' experience and qualifications is held by the club for two purposes; firstly, to help manage members' training pathway and secondly as a requirement of the RYA for the club's status as a training provider.
Members who take part in sporting events (regattas and such like) normally complete an application form with contact details and boat details, if appropriate. This information is used to manage races and compile results.
Your consent is sought before we use your identifiable image on any publication, including our newsletter, website or social media.
