Royston Cycling Club – Data Privacy Notice

Following the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) directive in May 2018 the club has reviewed its responsibilities to secure and protect its members’ personal data.  This document provides you with information about how Royston Cycling Club (RCC) is handling members’ personal information.

About us

RCC is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and complying with the principles of applicable data protection laws. This notice sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you will be processed by us.  Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.

RCC Membership

When you become a member of or renew your membership with RCC you will be registered for an online account with British Cycling (you do not need to become a British Cycling member).  We will provide British Cycling with your personal data which they will use to enable access via a username and password to an online portal for you (called My Dashboard) on the British Cycling website. British Cycling will use your personal data in accordance with its Privacy Notice which can be accessed at https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/staticcontent/info–Privacy-Policy-0.  British Cycling will contact you to invite you to sign into and update your dashboard (which, amongst other things, allows you to set and amend your privacy settings). If you have any questions about the continuing privacy of your personal data when it is shared with British Cycling, please contact compliance@britishcycling.org.uk.


Under the relevant legislation this means that British Cycling are considered the Data Controller of your data and therefore has primary responsibility for compliance with data protection legislation including GDPR providing such data is used solely for the purposes of running the club or any event or activity organised by the club. In this relationship RCC is therefore considered the Data Processor.


However, irrespective of how legislation defines the respective roles of Data Controller and Data Processor RCC are committed to respecting your privacy and your personal information both during and after your membership with us. This notice therefore outlines how we comply with the law on data protection and what your rights are.
