Why we share your information

We will not share your information with any other organisations except with your consent or in exceptional/emergency circumstances where we believe that the sharing of information about you is vital to protect you, your child or another person.

If you/your child want(s) to enter a competition provided by an external organisation, we will, with your agreement, share the information required to enter the event, usually name, DOB and gender. Most competitions are large events and there are likely to be photographers and people filming.

If you leave Abingdon Gymnastics club your data will be kept for 3 years. After this all records will be deleted.  You can request to have the data we held deleted at an earlier date (the right to be forgotten). This request must be actioned without undue delay unless there are legitimate grounds for the data to be retained e.g. legal obligation, right of freedom of expression (e.g. journalistic purposes), historical or statistical purposes.
