Specific emails will only be sent to the full club on urgent matters such as bad weather cancellations or formal notice of club meetings. No advertising or promotion from sponsors or races will be sent as separate emails.

Whilst you can chose not to 'opt in' to this email, we strongly suggest members do so to receive important club communications.

Submission of this membership / renewal form will act as your consent to the sharing of your data as described above.

Your data will not be shared with any other organisation or company outside of those outlined above.

In 2011 the law governing how cookies are used on websites was changed. Websites must now ask users for consent to store cookies on their computer or device.

This website (as with almost all other websites today) uses cookies to identify you as an "user". Without the use of cookies, every page you visit on the website, you would be considered as another anonymous user. That means we would be unable to alter anything on those pages based on your preferences or feedback. Furthermore, if you sign-in to the site to access protected content or use restricted functionality, we must use a cookie to store the fact you have been authenticated and exactly which User you are. This cookie is called a "session cookie" and the only information within the cookie itself is a unique reference string that the server uses to group your page visits together. This cookie is automatically generated on your first page request so will already be on your computer or device unless you have blocked all cookies in your browser settings. If you wish to remove this cookie, you should use the options in your browser to clear your browsing history - ensuring that the option to delete cookies is selected.

If you are a User on this site, the sign-in page offers to remember your username. If you select this option when signing-in, your username will be stored in a persistent cookie on your computer or device. This is so that we can prepopulate the username field next time you come back - making it quicker and easier for you to sign-in. If you do not wish to accept this cookie, please ensure the "remember my username" checkbox is not checked.

Data Usage

For security reasons, we log any changes to data made by you when you are signed-in to the system. An example of this might be a history log entry if you change your password or personal details. This only applies to Users who sign-in and is designed to help us protect the data held within the system. We also store a record each and every time a User signs-in, including the IP addres from which the request originated. The reason for this is two-fold... firstly it is to monitor site usage to ensure our infrastructure is sufficient to cope with the demands being put on the website. Secondly it is to help protect you and your data by providing an audit log of who has accessed your account, exactly when and from what IP address.

No personal data on this site is made available publically or passed to third-parties for any sort of marketing purposes.
