Summary of how The Highland Synchronized Ice Skating Teams and The National Ice Skating Association use your data

The Highland Synchronized Ice Skating teams (also referred to as ‘the Club’, ‘we’ or ‘us’) uses your personal data to manage and administer your membership and your involvement with its teams and the Club, and to keep in contact with you for these purposes.

- Some data is shared with The National Ice Skating Association (NISA), who use your data to regulate, develop and manage competitions

- Data is also shared with Sports Councils and the Press

- Where the Club or NISA relies on your consent, such as consent we seek for email marketing, you can withdraw this consent at any time

- Amongst the data we collect from you may be medical (including injury) information. We will hold this, where you (or your parent) have given consent, so that we can ensure we are aware of your condition and that you are supported appropriately

- Where you work in a particular role within the Club, you may be required to undergo a Disclosure & Barring Service check using NISA’s eDBS system.

What does this policy cover?

This policy describes how the Club will make use of the data we handle in relation to our members.

It also describes your data protection rights, including a right to object to some of the processing which we carry out. More information about your rights, and how to exercise them, is set out in the “What rights do I have?” section.

What information do we receive from third parties?

Sometimes, we receive information about you from third parties. For example, if you are a child, we may be given information about you by your parents.

How do we use this information, and what is the legal basis for this use?

How does NISA use any of my information?

NISA is our governing body but makes its own use of the following information:
- your name
- your gender
- your date of birth
- your home address, email address and phone number, and
- your type of membership and involvement in particular teams at the Club, or any key role you may have been allocated, such as Chair, Safeguarding Lead, Membership Secretary etc.

Withdrawing consent or otherwise objecting to direct marketing

Wherever we rely on your consent you will always be able to withdraw that consent, although we have other legal grounds for processing your data for purposes such as those set out above. In some cases we are able to send you direct marketing without your consent, where we rely on our legitimate interests. You have an absolute right to opt-out of direct marketing at any time. You can do this by following the instructions in the communication, where this is an electronic message, or by contacting us by email at highlandicesynchro@gmail.com.

Who will we share this data with, where and when?

In addition to sharing data with NISA we may share your data with Inverness Ice Centre in the event of any incident that may affect your use of the centre’s other facilities.

Some limited information may be shared with other stakeholders in ice skating, such as other Clubs and/or competition organisers, so that they can maintain appropriate records and assist us in organising competitions and administering the events.

Personal data may be shared with government authorities and/or law enforcement officials if required for the purposes above, if mandated by law or if required for the legal protection of our or NISA’s legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws.

Personal data may also be shared with third party service providers who will process it on our behalf for the purposes identified above.

Where information is transferred outside the EEA, and where this is to a stakeholder or vendor in a country that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission, data is adequately protected by EU Commission approved standard contractual clauses, an appropriate Privacy Shield certification or a vendor's Processor Binding Corporate Rules. A copy of the relevant mechanism can be provided for your review on request.

What rights do I have?

You have the right to ask us for a copy of your personal data; to correct, delete or restrict (stop any active) processing of your personal data and to obtain the personal data you provide to us for a contract or with your consent in a structured, machine readable format.

In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement, or where we are using the data for direct marketing).

These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping.

You have the same rights for data held by NISA for its own purposes.

To exercise any of these rights you can get in touch with us (or, as appropriate, NISA or its Data Protection Officer) using the details set out below. If you have unresolved concerns you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Much of the information listed above must be provided on a mandatory basis so that we can make the appropriate legal checks and register you as required by NISA Rules and Regulations. We will inform you which information is mandatory when it is collected. Some information is optional, particularly information such as your medical information. If this is not provided we may not be able to provide you with appropriate assistance, services or support.

How do I get in touch with you or NISA?

We hope that we can satisfy queries you may have about the way we process your data. If you have any concerns about how we process your data you can get in touch by emailing us at the Club’s email address highlandicesynchro@gmail.com.

If you have any concerns about how NISA processes your data you can get in touch at 01159 888060 or by writing to The Data Protection Officer, NISA, Grains Building, High Cross Street, Nottingham NG1 3AX.

How long will you retain my data?

We process the majority of your data for as long as you are an active member and for 6 years after this.

Where we process personal data for marketing purposes, or with your consent, we process the data unless you ask us to stop when we will only process the data for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests). We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your data indefinitely so that we can respect your request in future.

Where we process personal data in connection with performing a contract, or for a competition, we keep the data for 6 years from your last interaction with us.

We will retain information held to maintain statutory records in line with appropriate statutory requirements or guidance.

Records of your involvement in a particular competition, on results pages or in competition reports may be held indefinitely both by us and NISA in order to maintain a record of the event.
