We may also keep and store information contained in any correspondence you may have with the club, whether by post, email, fax, text  message or telephone conversation.

A record is maintained of subscriptions paid whether by up-front payment by cheque, cash or BACs or by authorised monthly standing order payments. The club does not keep a record of any related bank details.

For members who have requested a bar card, we keep a unique record of related transactions on our EPOS system, a record that includes the amount of money put on the card, corresponding spend and the account balance.

For employees, additional information is provided related to previous employment but also and not exclusively, national insurance and income tax details and if applicable, any county court orders; childcare benefits and any other subject that needs to be included in a payroll calculation. The club also maintains a paper record of the employee’s bank details, limited to name, sort code and account number.

Information from other sources

Such information will only be obtained from organisations that operate in accordance with GDPR.

How we use your personal data

We use a member’s personal data* to manage and administer the club’s membership system through Club Systems International (CSI) and for golfing members, to support the BRS Golf (BRS) tee booking system.

A record is also maintained of the player’s golfing scores, handicap and CDH number and this information is also shared with England Golf and the How Did I Do system. England Golf uses the member’s name to issue and England Golf membership card.

A bar card is issued to all members on request though the use of the club card is limited to the EPOS system only.

Data on the CSI system is used by the club to advise members whether by email, text message or letter, of upcoming events, subscription renewal, course information and other matters of interest related to the golf club.

For employees, all personal data* is used only for the administration of payroll, pensions and other HR matters.

For visitors (non-members) to the club’s website, personal data* will only be processed if consented to by the visitor.

Visitors to the BRS tee booking system, will be subject to the BRS Privacy Policy available on the BRS website.

Except in the circumstances outlined above the club will not share  personal information with any third party, unless we have a duty to do so,  are required to do so by law or to support the club’s routine.

In this last case, information may be limited to that which allows competitors in competitions to contact each other.

Except for this last reason, should any other occasion arise, the member or employee will be advised as soon as possible of any action taken.

The club will not use personal data* for marketing purposes other than for those promotions internal to the club.
