1. Under the May 2018 EU General Data Protection Regulation we need a lawful basis to collect and use your personal data. The law allows for six lawful bases to process personal data. One of them allows personal data to be legally collected and used if it is necessary for a legitimate interest of the organisation – as long as it is fair and balanced and does not unduly impact the rights of individuals.
2. We have conducted and recorded a Legitimate Interests Assessment in accordance with the requirements of the Regulation. We have assessed our needs of operating a chess club and we have carefully considered the impact the collection and use of personal data could potentially have on individuals’ rights.
3. Our records, both digital and otherwise, contain personal data which is used:
~ to facilitate the running and publicising of this chess club;
~ inform, educate and assist Members;
~ to promote the game of chess generally.
Processing of the data is necessary to achieve our purposes.
Such activities are unlikely to affect the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals concerned. We have concluded that the most appropriate lawful grounds for the processing of your personal data is our “legitimate interest”.
4. We regularly use email as the principal means of communicating with our members on matters relating to the club, chess events such as chess congresses and to chess generally. At any time you may opt out of receiving these communications by replying ‘Please unsubscribe’ or words to that effect. We also communicate with individual members by telephone, to deal with such matters as match or team arrangements.
5. We operate a website, ‘limewoodchess.club’ and a Twitter account, ‘https://twitter.com/LimewoodChess’, which provide information and news with a view to publicising the club, informing, educating and assisting Members, encouraging participation in chess events and promoting the game of chess generally. In pursuance of these aims we use personal data in the reporting of chess activities by teams and individuals, for example the outcomes of chess matches and individual games. We may publish the detail of individual games of interest to our Members, either in the form of downloadable files (eg in .pgn or pdf format) or by displaying games in a form that can be played through online. The games may be annotated/evaluated by one or both of the players concerned, by ourselves or by a chess engine. Some pages of the website are restricted to Members. Other pages are available to the general public.
1. We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Any data breach will be reported to the individuals affected within 72 hours, where feasible.
