Internally, the Club restricts access to personal information to committee, coaches or members who need access to the information in order to do their jobs. These people are limited in number and are committed to maintaining confidentiality. Apart from this, members' personal information is only disclosed to other members if the individual specifically requests.
The Club will review security arrangements from time to time as we deem appropriate.
