Privacy and Data Protection

The Gravesend Regatta Societ respects the privacy of everyone who visits this site. The purpose of this policy is to describe the types of information that we collect from you when you visit our site and explain how we use this information.

Your personal information

We collect your personal information when you complete an enquiry form or send an email. This information will include your name and email address plus other relevant information you choose to provide. The more information you can give us about yourself, the better we can provide you with the services that you need and want. We publish information leaflets and a newsletter for our members, health professionals and those that view the Gravesend Regatta Society website and these may contain from time to time images and personal information of our member families. We never publish any image of or anything without clear consent from those concerned. We also hold personal information about our staff, trustees and volunteers.

However, we only collect this information from you if you choose to provide it to us and we do not hold your information for longer than is necessary.

We use this information:

  1. To help us respond to enquiries
  2. To help us make the website more relevant to visitors’ needs
  3. To conduct research (anonymous)
  4. To email visitors from time to time with information or services which we think may be of interest

We will not disclose any personally identifiable information without your permission unless we are legally entitled or required to do so (for example, if required to do so by legal process or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime). You will be treated as having given your permission for disclosures referred to in this policy.

Who has access to your information?

Only designated, authorised people have access to your personal information, for instance staff or trustees. If you have allowed us to use your personal information for the purposes above, we may have to disclose this information to any company or organisation to which we pass the responsibility to handle email or other direct marketing communications. Should this happen, we ensure that any third party companies who handle your information are registered with and comply with the Data Protection Act.
