What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Who has access to your information?
Depending upon your role within the organisation, D.C.L.G.A committee members and other members of the Association will have access to appropriate information about you in order to deliver the services provided by the organisation. Where personal information such as addresses and telephone numbers is published on the website this will be in a secure area only accessible to those with a username and password.
When visitors use the contact form on the website, we collect the data shown on the form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
In order that ladies do not have to supply medical certificates for the use of buggies to other golfing organisations such as the Durham Ladies Vets, Teesside Alliance or Captain's Society as well as to D.C.L.G.A., we have agreed to share our list with them on an annual basis if they request it. Please note that no medical information will be shared - just the fact that a certificate is in place. Should any lady not want their information shared they should make this clear when they submit their medical certificate to the D.C.L.G.A.
