Sidmouth Croquet Club Privacy Notice
This privacy notice describes how the Sidmouth Croquet Club processes personal information ("the data")
it holds about you, or that you are about to share with it. The club will endeavour to meet
its obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") to process your information fairly,
but this notice outlines your rights if you object to how it treats your information.
Identity and Contact Details
The controller of the data is the Sidmouth Croquet Club ("the club"),
which is an unincorporated association of its members.
Its registered address is
Sidmouth Croquet Club,
The club has not appointed a Data Protection Officer under GDPR: its committee is collectively responsible for its obligations.
The data is processed by club members acting in a voluntary capacity on its behalf and by internet service providers
hosting its website and e-mail services.
Purpose and Lawful Basis for Processing
The club processes (or will process) information about you in order to administer your membership and/or support its activities,
for example the tournaments it runs and the entertainment of visiting groups.
The lawful basis for holding membership records is to fulfil the contract with you as a member (or potential member)
of the club. More generally, the basis for the processing described above is that it is in the legitimate interests of
the club in pursuit of the aims stated in its rules, yourself and/or the sport more widely.
The club may also process personal data relating to current or potential contracts with landlords,
suppliers or service providers, under the lawful basis of fulfilling or entering into those contracts.
Categories of Personal Data
The club may hold and process the following categories of personal data about its current or potential members,
tournament players and visitors:
Contact Details (e.g. postal, e-mail and social media addresses and telephone numbers)
Financial information relating to subscriptions and other transactions
Handicaps, rankings and qualifications
Information relating to committee membership or other service to the club
Competition and tournament entries, management and results, including selection for and participation in club teams
Disabilities, such as colour vision deficiency, where to do so would facilitate their participation
In addition, it may hold data relating to contracts with third parties, as noted above.
The club will share your data with The Croquet Association if you elect to become a member of it or play in a
tournament subject to its regulations, and may do so with other individuals, clubs and federations connected with the sport,
in connection with your participation in it.
It will publish your name, contact details, membership class and handicap(s) in membership lists made available in the clubhouse
and to fellow members, to facilitate contact between members and to help them arrange games.
It will provide results of ranking games to ranking officers working on behalf of the World Croquet Federation
and may publish tournament results and other information about club activities on www.croquetscores.com, the CA's,
Federation or its own websites.
It will not pass your data to other organisations without your consent, unless under a legal obligation to do so.
Data processed by the club will be held on servers held in the UK, European Union or countries which have equivalent
data protection safeguards.
Except where required for archiving purposes (e.g. results of tournaments and club competitions and records of
club activity, such as minute books and membership lists), data about you will be deleted six years after you last
had financial dealings with the club.
You have the right to object to how the club processes your personal information. In particular, you can request
that your contact details are not shown in published membership lists. You also have the right to access,
correct, and, in some cases, delete and restrict the use to which your information is put. In addition, you
have the right to complain to the club (see the first section for contact details) and to the Information Commissioner
Please contact the club secretary in the first instance if you have any queries or concerns.
The primary source for information about the club's members, tournament players and visitors is the
people themselves. For those who are members of the Croquet Association, information may also be taken from its website.
Consequences of Failing to Provide Data
If you do not provide the information required by the club to become a member, enter a tournament or
visit the club then you will be unable to do so.
Automated Decision Making
Software may be used to produce draws and orders of play for tournaments, but otherwise no
automated decision making software is used by the club.
