Personal data

“Personal data” means information about a living individual (the “data subject”) who can be identified from that data (either by itself or when combined with other information).

• The member’s name and address; • The member’s date of birth; • Parent/Guardian/ICE’s contact details (email address, mobile phone number and landline); and
We may also require personal data defined as “special category data” for specific and limited purposes, such as ensuring that the member is able to train and race safely. We will only process special categories of information where we’ve obtained your explicit consent or are otherwise lawfully permitted to do so. This may include:
• physical health details or medical conditions.

a. Information and documentation you give to us via your membership forms; b. information and documentation that we learn about you through our relationship with you; and c. information and documentation that we gather from publicly available sources, such as results published on the British Triathlon Federation (or other affiliated) website.

At every race event we request confirmation that we are able to utilise photos for race reports in the JEP, Facebook and/or the website.
