Data Use and Protection Policy for Dunshaughlin Rockets Basketball Club (the Club)
Personal data means data relating to a living individual who is or can be identified either from the data or from the data in conjunction with other information that is in, or is likely to come into, the possession of the data controller.
Data Controllers are those who, either alone or with others, control the collection, contents and use of personal data collected. In this case Rockets Basketball Club are the Data Controller. In some cases the club is joint controller with Basketball Ireland (BI) and the North East Basketball Board (NEBB). In the latter case separate registration for each tournament will be required independent of annual membership of the Club.
Data Protection is governed under the following;
- The Data Protection Acts of 2018
- General Data Protection Regulation GDPR
These convey several responsibilities on Data Controllers in relation to the personal data collected about individuals by the Club and stored electronically or in a structured manual file. These may be summarised as follows:
1.1. Obtain and process information fairly.
All members are required to complete a registration annually. No information from any other source is used by the Club and the member or their parent/guardian as appropriate can request access to the information if required.
1.2. The data must be kept for a specified, lawful purpose.
We use this information to administer the Club, to provide you with the services that you and your child/children receive at the Club, to meet the purposes of performing the Club’s obligations to you, for risk assessment, health and safety responsibilities of the Club, and to fulfil the registration requirements of Basketball Ireland and the North East Basketball Board (NEBB).
The data required to be collected by the Club is determined by the Club, BI and NEBB. For example, Member’s date of birth is collected as it is required by these governing bodies to determine eligibility for under-age play. This makes BI and NEBB co-controllers rather than processors of the data.
