Lawful basis for processing data
We consider “legitimate interests” [Article 6(1) (f)] as a lawful basis to process personal data. We believe this basis is the most appropriate to enable the club to function and maintain its long-standing model, keeping membership lists, sending magazines, informing members of club benefits, services, technical items, events, competitions and activities by post, telephone and email. We have checked that the processing is necessary and that there is no less intrusive way to achieve the same result. We are confident that the interests of the individuals do not override those legitimate interests. We only use individuals’ data in ways they would reasonably expect.
