Mayo Sailing Club takes the protection of your data very seriously. To that end our web site only collects the minimum amount of information needed to manage your membership and related preferences and payments.

The name, email address, postal address and account preferences (receive newsletter for example) and club related payments of each registered member. Registered members are those people who can log into an account on Mayo Sailing Club member’s area. Mayo Sailing Club does not collect personal data other than that which is provided to us via this member’s area and our contact form.
This data is collected is made available in a controlled and limited away to officers of the club to allow them to fulfil their roles in each case. In each case, Mayo Sailing Club provides the mechanism by which the personal data is collected, processed, stored and displayed.
The Mayo Sailing Club website stores your data on servers within Ireland. It does not pass your data to third parties, except by displaying results containing the names of owners, helms and crews of boats and some 3rd party tools used for the management of newsletters and club communications.
As a user of the Mayo Sailing Club web site you have the following rights:
The right to see any data about yourself.
The right to correct anything that is wrong.
The right to have your data deleted.
To exercise any of the above rights, in the first instance you should contact the registered member who inputted your data via their own account (in the case of a family account for example).
Social Media & Whats App
Mayo Sailing Club utilises social media channels and application such as What’s App for the purposes of updating members, promoting events and news and general public relations.
There are a number of privacy issues with WhatsApp when used in an a Club capacity and in cases where anonymity and privacy is paramount we are therefore advising against its use for communicating with members and/or transferring data such as images, videos, results etc. This is absolutely the case for younger members or children for the reasons outlined below. Use or engagement with Mayo Sailing Club via these channels assumes acceptance of these terms.
These issues relate to data protection concerns, but also other concerns from a Club’s perspective.
Firstly, if a WhatsApp group is set up, everyone in that group has their name, phone number and possibly profile photograph (if they have one), shared with everyone else in the group.
Secondly, the lack of auditing ability the Club has over a WhatsApp group is an issue. This is an issue for a number of reasons outside of GDPR and data protection also. For example, if a member in a WhatsApp group were to post unsuitable material to the WhatsApp group, and then leave the group, the Mayo Sailing Club administrators of the group have no means or mechanism to remove such material. The same can also be the case on Social media channels where Mayo Sailing Club have no means of editing or removing comments or materials posted by 3rd parties.
This lack of auditing ability also makes it difficult to comply with a Subject Access Request or request for deletion if one were received.
To be clear – Mayo Sailing Club will make every reasonable effort to implement our privacy obligations and protect our members and their privacy. In certain circumstances however we are impeded from fully doing this by restrictions inherent in software and strongly advise members for whom this may represent a concern to engage with the club using alternative means.
