Our club officers are all familiar with our security arrangements.

How can Visitors correct any inaccuracies in Personally Identifiable Information?

Visitors and Authorised Users may contact us to update Personally Identifiable Information about them or to correct any inaccuracies by emailing us using our Contact Form.

Can a Visitor delete or deactivate Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Site?

We provide Visitors and Authorised Users with a mechanism to delete / deactivate Personally Identifiable Information from the Site’s database by logging in to perform these actions in person or by contacting a Club officer. However, because we make backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor’s entry without retaining some residual information. An individual who requests to have Personally Identifiable Information deactivated will have this information functionally deleted and we will not transfer or use Personally Identifiable Information relating to that individual in any way moving forward.

What happens if the Privacy Policy Changes?

We will let our Visitors and Authorised Users know about changes to our privacy policy by posting such changes on the Site. However, if we are changing our privacy policy in a manner that might cause disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information that a Visitor or Authorised Users has previously requested not be disclosed, we will contact such Visitor or Authorised User to allow such Visitor or Authorised User to prevent such disclosure.
