The reason that we need your data is to be able to administer your membership, and provide the membership services that you are signing up to when you register with the club.  Our lawful basis for processing your data is that we have a contractual obligation to you, as a member, to provide the services that you are registering for.

Any special category health data that we hold about you is only processed for the purpose of passing health data to coaches to allow the safe running of training sessions.  We process this data on the lawful basis of consent.  Therefore we will also need your explicit consent to process this data, which we will ask for at the point of collecting it.
On occasion we may collect personal data from non-members, eg – any non-member participant who fills in a health disclaimer or form at one of our events.  This information will be stored for 4 weeks after the event, to allow all results to be categorised, and it will then be destroyed securely.  Our lawful basis for processing is consent.  Therefore we will also need explicit consent from non-members to process this data, which we will ask for at point of collecting it.
The club has the following social media pages – Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.  All members are free to join these pages.  If you join one of the social media pages, please note that providers of the social media platforms have their own privacy policies and that the club do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies.  Please check these policies before you submit personal data on the club social media pages


When you become a member of, or renew your membership with, Prestatyn Running Club, you can choose if you become a member of Welsh Athletics.  If you choose this option, you will automatically be registered as a member of Welsh Athletics.  Welsh Athletics will contact you to invite you to sign into and update your MyAthletics portal (which, amongst other things, allows you to set and amend your privacy settings).  It is vital, therefore, that a valid email address is given, so that you can ensure that your data is correct and so that you can set your own privacy settings.  If you have any questions about the continuing privacy of your personal data, when it is shared with Welsh Athletics, please access the Welsh Athletics website, have a look at the information and, if necessary, contact them
Prestatyn Running Club will not supply any personal data that it holds to any other third party.  The club does not store or transfer your personal data outside of the UK

As a data subject, you may have the right at any time to request access to, rectification or erasure of your personal data; to restrict or object to certain kinds of processing of your personal data, including direct marketing; to the portability of your personal data and to complain to the UK’s data protection supervisory authority, the Information Commissioner’s Office about the processing of your personal data.
