Control of your personal information
Your personal information is shared with the committee members of your Group and with the National Executive Committee of the VTTA. We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.
Retention of your personal information
We normally keep your membership information for a year after you have ceased to be a member of the VTTA. If, on leaving the VTTA, you wish to have your personal data deleted sooner than this, please contact us. Note that regarding time trials, records must be kept for 7 years in the event of an accident. A record of your involvement in VTTA activities (e.g. race results, records and trophies) may be held indefinitely as part of the Association's history and archives.
Security of your personal information
The VTTA will take all steps reasonably necessary including policies, procedures and security features to ensure that your data is treated securely and protected from unauthorised and unlawful access and/or use, and in accordance with this notice. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have in place generally accepted standards of technology and operational security to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access your personal details on the national website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share such a password with anyone.
Where any payments are being collected on our behalf, we require our payment providers to be compliant with the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security standards (PCI-DSS).
If in future we allow an organisation to process your personal information outside of the European Economic Area (for example to distribute postal or electronic communication), we will ensure that we create and maintain appropriate safeguards with those organisations so that your personal information is subject to the same standards and protections as when we are processing your personal information inside the European Economic Area.
