Privacy and Accessibility

Every effort has been made to ensure that the original template pages for this site are W3C compatible.

However, as the content of pages is supplied by the club, such content may not be compatible.

Cookies:

We do not use cookies on this site to identify individuals, other than when a member logs into the members area. These are 'Session Cookies' which are destroyed when a member logs out of the site or closes the browser window - they are not stored long term on the user's computer. These are used so that a member can only log into his/her club etc.

We use Google Analytics to make sure our statistics are reliable.

Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. We do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.

We have some pages that link to external tools such as Google Maps and YouTube. These tools sit on Google’s web servers and you can find more information on Google's Privacy Policy here.

Some pages may have cookies used to integrate with Social Media sites, so that, for example, if you are logged into Facebook, you can 'like' pages.

We do not collect personal data in the public area of the site - if you complete a contact form, for example, your email address is not stored in a database for re-use, nor is any information passed to third parties.
