Lawful Basis
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires us to rely on one or more lawful basis to use your personal information. We consider the grounds listed below to be relevant:

Where you have provided your consent for us to use your personal information internally by registering with the club so where necessary so that we can comply with a legal obligation to which we may be subject and where necessary for the operation of the club’s and other golf related events.

The GDPR allows us to collect and process your personal information if it is reasonably necessary to achieve our contractual and legitimate interests (as long as that processing is fair, balanced and does not unduly impact your rights as an individual). In broad terms, our contractual basis is required to comply with terms of membership and our “legitimate interests” means the interests of running the club’s competitions and ensuring the best possible experience for all golfers.

When we process your personal information to achieve such legitimate interests, we consider and balance any potential impact on you and on your rights under data protection laws. We will not use your personal information for other activities except where you consent to the club sending occasional electronic communications (unless, for instance, we are otherwise required or permitted to by law).

Electronic Communications
We may use your contact details to provide you with:

- Information about, PGC competitions, draws, results,
- Newsletters
- Information about special events from PGL, Cargills Clubhouse Noah’s Ark Golf Centre. (Where you have consented to receive such information).

If you request to receive no further contact from us, we may keep some basic information about you on our suppression list in order to comply with our legal obligations, and avoid sending you unwanted materials in the future.

For members who leave we will hold the data for 3 years unless requested to delete when they leave.

For visitors we will hold the data for 3 years unless they opt out of all communications from the club.
