Collection and Use of Personal Information

Newport SLSC collects personal information to maintain records of members of all types for the purpose of:

administering the club and its services
providing data on members to organisations under whose auspices the club operates
tracking qualifications and training of members
financial data is kept only relating to membership subscriptions, donations, sponsorship and competition fees
Newport SLSC also collects Personal Information of non-members via the registration process for competition events to identify individuals and allocate them into categories of age and gender for the event. This information is also used for billing purposes for those registrants who pay using a credit card. Following successful completion of financial transactions, all personal financial data is discarded.

Personal information may also be used to maintain a database of competitors and results and may further be used to notify individuals of next year’s event electronically, for example by email.

Newport SLSC takes reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of individuals’ data and uses it only for the purposes stated. Personal information is not sold, shared or otherwise provided to any third party individual or organisation under any circumstances except as stated in this policy.

Newport SLSC has no control over use of personal information of associated organisations in surf lifesaving to whom data may be provided. Similarly, Newport SLSC has no control over use of personal information collected by others, such as websites of unaffiliated organisations who may provide services such as registration, for events such as the Pool to Peak Swim. It is recommended that individuals check the Privacy Policies of such organisations.
