In the table below’ we refer to these as the “special category reasons for processing of your personal data”.


We typically collect personal information about our members when you apply to become a member of the club, when an enquiry or complaint is made, when there is general correspondence with us by telephone, email or in some other way or when goods are purchased from the club. We may also collect personal information when managing and administering events and swim meets run by us and/or other clubs or organisations.

If you are providing us with details of next of kin, family members and emergency contacts they have a right to know and to be aware of how what personal information we hold about them, how we collect it and how we use and may share that information. Please share this privacy notice with those of them whom you feel are sufficiently mature to understand it. They also have the same rights as set out in the “Your rights in relation to personal information” section below.


The table below describes the main purposes for which we process your personal information, the categories of your information involved and our lawful basis for being able to do this.

For some of your personal information you will have a legal, contractual or other requirement or obligation for you to provide us with your personal information. If you do not provide us with the requested personal information we may not be able to admit you as a member or we may not be able to properly perform our contract with you or comply with legal obligations and we may have to terminate your membership.

For other personal information you may not be under an obligation to provide it to us, but if you do not provide it then we may not be able to properly perform our contract with you. Where you have given us your consent to use your personal information in a particular manner, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time, which you may do by contacting us as described in the "Contacting us" section below.


Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be shared with the following parties: • Swim England (membership information and swim meet results) • Yorkshire Swimming (membership information and swim meet entries) • Swim England North East Region (membership information and swim meet entries) • British Swimming (swim meet entries) • Other Swimming Clubs (swim meet entries) • Other Bodies where we are required to do so by law or in connection with legal proceedings

We will only share personal information with other third parties having been given explicit consent.


We have Facebook social media presence. All members are free to join, subject to the providers standard terms and conditions. However please note that each provider will have their own specific privacy policy and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check the relevant policy very carefully before submitting any personal information to a given site


The duration for which we retain your personal information will differ depending on the type of information and the reason why we collected it from you. However, in some cases personal information may be retained on a long-term basis: for example, personal information that we need to retain for legal purposes will normally be retained in accordance with usual commercial practice and regulatory requirements.

Generally, where there is no legal requirement we retain all physical and electronic records for a period of 3 months after your last contact with us or at the end of your membership. Membership data is updated every year on the annual membership form.

Any personal data we hold on you will be securely destroyed after inactivity on that member’s account, in line with Swim England’s data retention policy. Exceptions to this rule are:

• Information that may be relevant to personal injury or discrimination claims may be retained until the limitation period for those types of claims has expired. For personal injury or discrimination claims this can be an extended period as the limitation period might not start to run until a long time after the event.

It is important to ensure that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and up-to-date, and you should let us know if anything changes, for example if you change your phone number or email address. Alternatively, you can contact us by using the details set out in the "Contacting us" section below.

Whilst this privacy notice sets out a general summary of your legal rights in respect of personal information, this is a very complex area of law.
