  • Any party approved by you;
  • To any clay target shooting related administrative body in Ireland or abroad to allow them to properly administer clay target shooting on a local, regional, national and international level;
  • Staff and Volunteers who work at venues to support the delivery of ICTSA events;

  • UK based service provider who may process membership, competition and statistical data

Your right to withdraw consent

Where you have given your consent to any processing of personal data, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. If you do, it will not affect the lawfulness of any processing for which we had consent prior to your withdrawing it. The withdrawal of consent may impact your membership status with us as it would affect our ability to administer your membership and the sport of clay target shooting.

Location of your personal data

We will keep your personal data within the EEA to the extent possible. Entering and competing in international events outside of the EEA may require a degree of data transfer outside the EEA, and in such cases, we will try to ensure data is processed securely in accordance with the standards and safeguards set out in this policy.

How long we will keep your personal data for

We will not retain your personal data for longer than is reasonable and necessary for the purposes for which it was collected.

The specific length of time will depend on the type of information and the reason we collected it from you. In the absence of any legal requirement, we generally retain all physical and electronic records for a period of [3] years after your last contact with us or the end of your membership.

In the case of Garda Vetting information, we will retain it for 12 months after the renewal period has expired. Information that may be relevant to personal injury or discrimination claims may be retained until the limitation period for those types of claims has expired.

Your rights in respect of your personal data

You have the right of access to your personal data and, in some cases, to require us to restrict, erase or rectify it (if it is inaccurate or out of date, for example if you change your email address) or to object to our processing it, and the right of data portability.

If you have any questions relating to your rights, please contact us by using the details set out in the "Contact us" section below.

More information about your legal rights can be found on the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner’s website at http://gdprandyou.ie/

Changes to this Notice

ICTSA may occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect company and customer feedback, or any amendment to the law. ICTSA will try to notify any changes on its website and encourages you to periodically review this to be informed of how ICTSA is protecting your information.

We have not appointed an official Data Protection Officer to oversee our compliance with data protection laws as we are not required to do so because we do not process large quantities of data.
