The Vintage Glider Club Ltd (Company No. 6514427 ) is committed to protecting your privacy and security. This
policy explains how and why we use your personal data, to ensure you remain informed and in control of your
This Privacy Notice applies to anyone that the VGC comes into contact with, including but not exclusively;
members, volunteers, the general public, professional contacts.
We will never sell your personal data, and will only ever share it with organisations we work with where
necessary and if its privacy and security are guaranteed.
Any questions you have in relation to this policy or how we use your personal data should be addressed to the
VGC Secretary, 1 Maplehurst Chase, Basingstoke, Hants, RG22 4XQ.

In this policy wherever you see the words ‘the VGC’, ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’ it refers to The Vintage Glider Club Ltd.

Personal data you provide
We collect data you provide to us in the course of our usual operations. This includes information you give when
joining or communicating with us. For example:
• personal details (name, date of birth, email, address, telephone etc.) when you become a member.
• details of your interests and preferences (such as club(s) you belong to, gliders that you fly or own).
Information created by your involvement with the VGC
Your membership of the VGC will result in personal data being created. This could include the club(s) that you
are a member of or the type of glider that you own or fly. If you decide to donate to us then we will keep records
of when and how much you give to a particular cause.
Sensitive personal data
We do not normally collect or store sensitive personal data (such as information relating to health, beliefs or
political affiliation) about members.
Accidents or incidents
If an accident or incident occurs at one of our events involving a member then we’ll keep a record of this (which
may include personal data and sensitive personal data). We may also be required to share this with the
appropriate statutory bodies.

We only ever use your personal data with your consent, or where it is necessary in order to:
• comply with a legal duty;
• protect your vital interests;
• for our own lawful interests, provided your rights don’t override these.

In any event, we’ll only use your information for the purpose or purposes it was collected for (or else for closely
related purposes):
We use personal data to communicate with people, to promote the VGC and to help with fundraising. This
includes keeping you up to date with our news, updates and fundraising information. For further information on
this please see Section 6.
We use personal data for administrative purposes. This includes:
• receiving donations ;
• maintaining databases of our members;
• fulfilling orders for goods or services (in whatever form the order is submitted);
• helping us respect your choices and preferences
Internal data analysis
We carry out analysis of the data from our members, to better understand the gliders that our members own or fly
and the club(s) the member belongs to (Modeller, non-flying member etc) This helps inform our work and makes
the VGC a stronger and more effective organisation. Understanding our members, their interests and what they
care about also helps us provide a better experience (e.g. through more relevant communications).

We will never sell your personal data. We may contact you with information about our products and services, but
these communications will always come from the VGC and are usually incorporated into our own
communications (e.g. leaflets or articles in magazines or email newsletters and the VGC News).
Occasionally, where we partner with other organisations, we may also share information with them (for example,
if you register to attend an event being jointly organised by us and another gliding club). We’ll only share
information when necessary and for the purposes that you have provided the data to us.

The VGC will ask its members to “opt-in” for marketing/newsletter communications.
This means you have the choice as to whether you want to receive these messages and be able to select how you
want to receive them (post, phone, email).
You can decide not to receive communications or change how we contact you at any time. If you wish to do so
please contact vgcmem@gmail, writing to the Membership Secretary, 1 Maplehurst Chase, Basingstoke, Hants,
RG22 4XQ or telephoning 01252 614684.
What does ‘marketing’ mean?
Marketing does not just mean offering things for sale, but also includes news and information about:
• appeals and fundraising;
• our events and activities;
• products and offers;
• leaving a legacy;
• taking part in projects.

When you receive a communication, we may collect information about how you respond to or interact with that
communication, and this may affect how we communicate with you in future.
Newsletters and magazines
Membership magazines are provided as a benefit to our members. We send these out to all our members (unless
you specifically ask us not to) and you can choose to unsubscribe from general marketing communications
without giving up your subscription to your regular magazine.

Where we store information and how long we store information
Under forthcoming data regulations, we will be required to make sure that we use and store information for so
long as it is required for the purposes it was collected for. How long information will be stored for depends on the
information in question and what it is being used for.
We will regularly review what information we hold and delete what is no longer required.

• the right to have your data erased (though this will not apply where it is necessary for us to continue to use
the data for a lawful reason);
• the right to have inaccurate data rectified;
• the right to object to your data being used for marketing or analysis; and
• where technically feasible, you have the right to see personal data you have provided to us which we
process automatically on the basis of your consent or the performance of a contract. This information will
be provided in a common electronic format.

your satisfaction, there may be situations where we are unable to do so.
