Our legal bases for processing your information

We will process your Athletics Data on the basis of the following legitimate interests:

  • The use of APIs to provide external software providers with a facility to check and validate data to support administrative processes.
  • There is an administration portal where a selected number of staff can access data to help to respond to queries, update data and perform necessary administration activity.

If you become a member of RRC, we will share your Athletics Data with the following bodies as part of the administration of your involvement in the sport: UK Athletics and Redcar Cricket Club.

We will share only what is needed for those purposes and, where possible, will anonymise the data before sharing. If we would like to share your information for any other purpose we will ask for your consent.

When we collect information from you, we will tell you if we would like to send you information about our products and services. We will give you the opportunity to opt in to any such communications and will tell you how you can opt-out at any time.

If we wish to share your data with third parties for marketing purposes, we will tell you about this and only do so if we get your consent. You can opt out at any time either by notifying us or by updating your privacy preferences on our portal.

RRC may also share your personal information with the police and other law enforcement agencies for the purposes of crime prevention or detection. If we disclose your information, we ask the organisation to demonstrate that the data will assist in the prevention or detection of crime, or that RRC is legally obliged to disclose it. This is done on a strictly case by case basis and through a tightly controlled process to ensure we comply with Data Protection Legislation.

By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy. The Internet is not generally a secure medium for communication and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of any information you send to us over the Internet.
