Privacy Policy

1. Who are we?

We are the Dublin Scottish Country Dance Club.
Contact details for committee members:
Website Manager:

2. What personal data do we collect and why?

Your Name – for membership records
Your Address – for communication and insurance
Your Phone Number – for communication (e.g. in case of cancellations of a class or event)
Your Email Address – to inform you of news, events, activities, class schedule
Your RSCDS branch (if applicable) – for easier coordination at events
Photos – for promoting the club and for archival records (no names are stated without consent). If you see a photo of yourself on our website and would like it removed, please email the website manager.
Videos – for teaching, promoting the club and for archival records (no names are stated without consent)
• Accounts (e.g. attendance records and payments) are kept for one year.

3. What is the legal basis for processing the data?

Our legal basis is consent and legitimate interest.

4. Who has access to the data?

In most cases, the data is only accessible to committee members (chairman, secretary, treasurer, website managers, teachers). We try to minimise this so that every committee member only has the data they need for their role. In the case of an incident, your details may be shared with our insurance company. Photos and videos are on the website and therefore public.

5. How long will we store the data?

Apart from photos and videos on the website, we will store the data for as long as you are a member. If you don’t renew your membership, we keep the data for one more membership year (1st Sept – 31st Aug), unless you inform us that you would like to leave the club.
