Privacy Notice


Pickering Running Club (PRC) is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. For any personal data you provide for the purposes of your membership, PRC is the Data Controller and is responsible for storing and otherwise processing that data in a fair, lawful, secure and transparent way.

What personal data we hold on you

You may give us information about yourself by filling in forms at an event or online, or by corresponding with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise. This includes information you provide when you register with the Club or participate in discussion boards on our website. The information you give us may include your name, date of birth, address, e-mail address, phone number, name of the EA affiliated Clubs with which you are registered and gender.

Why we need your personal data

The reason we need your details is to be able to administer your membership and provide the membership services you are signing up to when you register with the club. Our lawful basis for processing your personal data is that we have a contractual obligation to you as a member to provide the services you are registering for.

Reasons we need to process your data include:

For training and competition entry  

  • sharing personal data with club coaches or officials to administer training sessions
  • sharing personal data with club team managers to enter events;
  • sharing personal data with facility providers to manage access to the facility, e.g. Pickering Recreation Club

For membership and club management  

  • processing of membership forms and payments;
  • sharing data with committee members to provide information about club activities, membership renewals or invitation to social events;
  • publishing of race and competition results

On occasion we may collect personal data from non-members (e.g. such as any non-member participating in a beginners’ course). This information will be stored for the duration of the course and then destroyed securely. Our lawful basis for processing data is consent. Therefore, we will also need explicit consent from non-members to process this data, which we will ask for at the point of collecting it.

The club has a Facebook page and a dedicated PRC Strava page.  All members are free to join these pages. If you join one of the Social Media pages, please note that the providers of the social media platform(s) have their own privacy policies and that the club does not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data on the club social media pages.

Who we share your personal data with

When you become a member of the Club you can also choose to be registered as a member of England Athletics Limited. If you wish to be an individual member of England Athletics, we will provide England Athletics Limited with your Athletics Data which they will use to enable access to the MyAthletics online portal. England Athletics Limited will contact you to invite you to sign into and update your MyAthletics portal. You can set and amend your privacy settings from the MyAthletics portal. If you have any questions about the continuing privacy of your personal data when it is shared with England Athletics Limited, please contact dataprotection@englandathletics.org. If you choose not to have individual membership, we will not share your data with England Athletics Limited. Please be aware that should you ever wish to compete in your sport you will have to register with England Athletics Limited at that time.

The Club does not supply any personal data it holds for this purpose to any other third party. The Club does not store or transfer your personal data outside of the UK.  Where the Club does transfer your personal data overseas it is with the appropriate safeguards in place to ensure the security of that personal data.


How long we hold your personal data

We will hold your personal data on file for as long as you are a member with us.  Any personal data we hold on you will be securely destroyed after four years of inactivity on that member’s account, in line with England Athletics Limited’s retention policy. Your data is not processed for any further purposes other than those detailed in this policy.


Your rights regarding your personal data

As a data subject you may have the right at any time to request access to, rectification or erasure of your personal data; to restrict or object to certain kinds of processing of your personal data, including direct marketing; to the portability of your personal data and to complain to the UK’s data protection supervisory authority, the Information Commissioner’s Office about the processing of your personal data.
