Personally identifiable information:

We only collect personal information about you (for example your name, address, telephone number, email address) when you specifically provide us with such information on a voluntary basis, for example when you enter a vehicle for the Run, purchase items from the shop, enquire about the event or, when subscribing to receive the newsletter.

No data will be transferred outside of the EU.

We will not share your personal information for marketing or any other purposes without your consent (unless where required by law).

We will tailor these communications using the information we have about you but you can object to that at any time.

We may also process your data because it is necessary to fulfil a contract or because we have a legitimate interest to do so. We do research and collect limited work-related contact information from publicly available sources, to identify and communicate with business prospects. We rely on legitimate interests to do this.

The Club will initially retain your information for a period of 5 years after our last transaction with you or from when we obtained the information.
