We collect and use your personal information only with your knowledge and consent and typically when you apply for or renew club membership, order products, enquire about membership or club activities, enter club races and events or when you respond to communications from us (such as questionnaires or surveys).

The personal information we collect for club membership includes your name, postal address, date of birth, telephone number and email address.

If you choose to provide us with other personal information it will be used in support of the intended purposes stated at the time at which it was collected, and subject to any preferences indicated by you.

From time to time, if you consented accordingly we may also store and use your email contact information to inform you about club news and/or activities.

Disclosure of your information to other parties

If you are a Northbrook Athletic Club first-claim club member, your name, address, telephone number and date of birth will be provided to England Athletics for competition registration and insurance purposes. This is a requirement to be considered as an England Athletics Affiliated Club Athlete with the associated benefits.

If you are a first-claim club member registered with England Athletics and you choose to take part in a running event organised by Northbrook AC that is part of a league series, your name, URN and age category (calculated from your date of birth) will be provided to the organisers of that league.

If you take part in a competition as a member of a Northbrook AC team your name and in some circumstances your age category (calculated from your date of birth) will be provided to the organisers of that event for results calculation and presentation purposes.

You may unsubscribe from any or all of our mailing lists at any time.

Any comments you make on these services and on social media in general must be not offensive, insulting or defamatory. You are responsible for ensuring that any comments you make comply with any relevant policy on acceptable use of those services.

Right of erasure

We hold your personal information only for as long as we actually need it for the purposes for which we acquired it in the first place. In most cases, this means we will keep your information for as long as you continue to be a member, and for a reasonable period of time afterwards if you cease to be a member to see if we can persuade you to come back to us. After that we will delete it other than where we lawfully can or are obliged to keep any data for audit or legal reasons.
