Who we share your information with:

If your child wishes to enter a competition run by an external organisation, we will, with your agreement share the information required for your child to take part in the event. This is usually, your child’s name, date of birth and gender. The organisers of external competitions will have their own photographic policy that you will be able to view upon request if you wish to at the event.
To facilitate the running of the club and the collection of payments we use external companies to manage this. As a member of our club, you will have signed up to Pay Subs Online and Go Cardless independently. To view their privacy policies, please use the links below:
