In order to join Bicester and Oxford Riding Club, we do need to collect some personal information about you and this policy explains what we need and why we need it.

The Data Protection Act 2018 provides the following rights for individuals:

  • The right to be informed

  • The right of access

  • The right to rectification

  • The right to erasure (the right to be forgotten)

  • The right to restrict processing

  • The right to object

  • Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling

The following list outlines the types of personal information we may require from you:

  • Full name

  • Home address

  • Postcode

  • Contact telephone numbers

  • Email address

  • Next of kin details

Please note, you are responsible for gaining permission from your next of kin to provide their contact details.

How do we store your information?

Your information is recorded through our website which is hosted by Wix and therefore all data submitted by you via our website is stored on their servers. A register of all members is maintained locally by the Chairman of BORC.

Payments are taken using Stripe or PayPal, we do not store any payment card details. We only receive the payment made by you and a confirmation from the payment merchant that a payment has been made and who has made the payment.

Who do we share your information with?

We will not share your information with any third parties for the purposes of direct marketing. Where we utilise third parties who store data outside of the EEA, we ensure that standard contractual clauses (SCC's) are in place to protect your data.

What do we do with your information?

Your information will be used to organise events and keep you updated with events you have registered to participate in.

Next of kin details will only be used to contact in the event of an emergency involving you.

Access to your information

It is your right to know what information is stored about you, by us, at any time. All you have to do is make a subject access request and we will aim to respond in 14 working days, some requests may take longer but no longer than one month.

In most cases, subject access requests are free, however, Bicester and Oxford Riding Club does reserve the right to request a small fee or refuse the request, should it be manifestly unfounded or excessive.

There are some exemptions which means you may not always receive all of the information we process, this may be because some data may include information about another individual. In these cases, we may be able to send edited versions which do not contain any personal information about others, however, this will be assessed at the time taking both your rights and the other individuals rights in to consideration.

You can make a subject access request by using the Contact Us form on the website. Please note, all subject access requests are responded to, where possible, electronically, if you wish to receive the information in a different format then you will need to make this clear at the time of request.

If you would like further information regarding how to make a subject access request, your rights and ours, please visit

Data accuracy

If you believe any of the information we are holding is out of date please let us know and we will ensure it is updated.

For every year that you are a member of Bicester and Oxford Riding Club you will be asked to update your contact and next of kin details to ensure we have the correct details.


The right to be forgotten

Should you wish to have your data held by us erased, your reason for this must meet one of the following grounds:

  • the personal data is no longer necessary for the purpose which we originally collected or processed it for

  • If your consent was given but you have now changed your mind

  • If there is no legitimate interest for us to continue processing your data

  • If there is no lawful reason for us to have collected or processed your data

  • If there is a legal requirement to erase

Automated decisions

This does not apply to Bicester and Oxford Riding Club.

Data Transfers

We use Wix to supply our website, the use data centres in the USA, Ireland, Japan and Israel. Due diligence has been completed prior to use to ensure that they are compliant with the Data Protection Act 2018 and we have confirmed that Standard Contractual Clauses and their data security is up to standard.

Children's Information

Bicester and Oxford Riding Club is an over 18's club so it is unlikely that Children's information will ever be collected.

We will only store next of kin details for as long as you are a member or until you update new details.
