What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Web site:

We collect your names, e-mail addresses and member numbers. This data is collected to allow club members access to private pages on the website.

Accounting System:

For some members our online accounting system (Reckon), which is used to track member subscriptions, bookings and payment of credits may hold the bank account details and/or mailing address where supplied to allow re-imbursement to a member. This information is used by approved members of the Committee for payment and bank authorisation purposes.

Online Booking System:

The online booking system contains the following information for each member and also any nominated double/family.

Name, Gender, Member number, Joining date, Email, Phone Number(s), Address, Member category, Priority points and Date of Birth (DoB is only captured for members children to assist the Membership Secretary to correctly classify Member class)

This data is collected to allow club members access to the booking system and is the clubs official Register of Members as required by the Club Rules.

A copy of the booking system data is encrypted and stored on our hosted web site platform for historical tracking of changes in our membership and also as a backup if we need to reload the online booking system.


A subset of the membership information in the booking system  (Name, Membership Number and Priority Points) is stored in dropbox along with Members refundable deposit  information (if applicable) as our official record of Members current priority points and how they were accumulated, and as our official record  of any refundable deposit owed to members on their resignation.
