7 Bullet Summary (for those in a rush to get out training for the next event!)

  1. We, as a Data Controller, recognise our responsibility to treat your personal information with the utmost care and to comply with all relevant legislation, in particular the Data Protection Act 2018 and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
  2. We pass the personal data we collect on behalf of an event organiser or club to that event organiser or club so that they can provide you with an event entry or club membership.
  3. The event organiser or club, as Data Controllers in their own right, once in possession of your data, are subject to the same legislation, and we ensure via our Terms and Conditions that they are aware of their key responsibilites.
  4. The event organiser or club may in turn pass the necessary elements of your personal data to other bodies or services providers, but only as necessary in order to provide you with the service on offer. E.g. To a timing company to provide race timing or the sport's National Governing Body where there is a requirement for your membership details to be logged.
  5. All of your payment card details are held separatly by our payment service provider SagePay and neither Fabian4, the event organisers or clubs have access to this data.

  7. We will not pass any of your personal data to any third party that is not necessary for the delivery of the event entry or membership service without your explicit permission. We are confident the data controllers we work with will be compliant with the law in this respect too.

If the weather doesn't look so great for training you may have time to read further details about the data we collect, how it is used, how it is secured, your statutary rights and more. Please contact us if you have any questions.
