What we do with your personal information

Any information you provide to us will be stored electronically by the Welsh Disabled Golf Association (WDGA) and as well as access by the Committee may be shared with the golf courses we use for the purpose of arranging the relevant events and administering the Wales Disabled Golf Association. Due to the nature of the Association this may include Personal Sensitive information about your disability and personal care needs. We will only share this information when we need to in order to be able to ensure that our events are suitable and accessible for all our players and those present to support them.

During WDGA Events we try to have photographers present to capture as much of the day’s activity as possible. These photos will be used as a momento of the event and for future publicity of the WDGA including on our Website, Flickr Channel, Twitter, Facebook and other Social Media platforms. If you would prefer your image not to be used in this way please let the event organisers know at event registration.

Following an event we will keep your registration information securely on electronic or paper file up to the end of the next season for Audit and ongoing administration purposes including use as evidence to bodies who award grants to the WDGA. After this time if if you have not attended any further WDGA events your information will be securely disposed of.

We would like to keep in touch with you about other WDGA Events. Those who book for an event or donate to WDGA will have their e-mail address added to our mailing list, powered by MailChimp. We will send at most 1 mailing per month and at the bottom of each of these mailings is the option to Unsubscribe. Those who join the society as a Member will recieve more frequent messages but will also have the option to control the frequency of these messages.

Finally any payments made electronically are processed for us by PayPal. This allows us to have the security of collecting money prior to an event and no have the risk of carrying cash around. Your booking details are shared with PayPal at the point of payment to allow them to take payment on our behalf.

For further information on how your information is used, how we maintain the security of your information, and your rights to access information we hold on you, please contact the WDGA Secretary (secretary@welshdisabledgolf.org.uk)
