Under data protection law, we can only use your Personal Data if we have a proper reason for doing so, eg:

  • where you have given consent;
  • to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;
  • for the performance of our contract with you; or
  • for our legitimate interests or those of a third party.

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests.

We use (process) your Personal Data and our reasons for doing so are:

  • to provide skating sessions to you and inform you of any alterations to these sessions;
  • operational reasons, such as ensuring we know who is attending our sessions. This is for our legitimate interests so we can be as efficient as we can in delivering the best skating sessions to you;
  • statistical analysis to help us run ISC e.g. in relation to accessing grants and determining which sessions to offer. This is for our legitimate interests so we can be as efficient as we can in delivering the best skating sessions to you;
  • ensuring safe working practices, such as COVID-19 screening. This is to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations and for our legitimate interests; and
  • for FARS Members to ensure that the records FARS holds are accurate.

The above does not apply to Sensitive Personal Data. This is only processed with your explicit consent.

Who we share your Personal Data with
We will not share your Personal Data with any other third party.

 The exception to this is for FARS Members where a club administrator has been appointed to help ensure that the personal data FARS is holding on you are accurate and up-to-date. ISC acts as a processor in this capacity.

We may also need to disclose and exchange information with law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.
