The Club is permitted to retain data in order to defend or pursue claims.

We will retain some personal data for this purpose as long as we believe it is necessary to be able to defend or pursue a claim. In general we will endeavour to keep data only for as long as we need it. This means that we will delete it when it is no longer needed.
