Privacy Policy

eventrac Ltd is committed to protecting your privacy online. This policy statement explains the steps we take to ensure this.

What information do we collect?

During your registration for an event, coaching course, membership, donation or product purchase organised by organisers (third event organisers) we ask you (the profile owner) to create a profile providing specific information that will used in the basic registration process. This will include details such as:

  • Your name, gender and date of birth
  • Email address
  • Postal address
  • Your mobile and/or landline telephone number

These details are held on our system and may be re-used if you subsequently enter other events/memberships/coaching courses, make product purchase, or make a donation using your profile.

You can edit, update, change or remove (de-active your account) these details using your normal profile login details at any time. If you forget your password our system will send you a reminder by email. You can also change your password at any time.

When you enter an event/coaching course, or take up/renew membership,  an organiser may ask additional questions as part of the registration process. These questions are only stored for that event, they are not part of your eventrac profile, and  the information is only available to the organiser of the relevant event/membership or coaching course/coaching workshop bookings.

What information do we process?

Information that we collect and store in your eventrac user profile will be used by us to communicate with you regarding any system updates, issues relating to any event entries, memberships or coaching courses, coaching workshop bookings made via the eventrac platform.

The profile owner is responsible for the creation, maintenance and update of profile records.  Where event organisers have enabled self-managing entries, profile owners are able to administer details of any event entry, memberships/membership renewal or coaching courses/workshops.  It is the responsibility of the profile owner to ensure any changes made to these participant details are accurate.

All data (except credit/debit card details and any password you (the profile owner) have set), will be passed onto the organisation supplying the activity/purchase (the data controller) for the purposes of registration of event entry/memberships/membership renewal or course/workshop bookings.  Please check  the privacy policy and Terms and Conditions of the organisers (third party organisers of events)  to understand how they will use this data to manage you activity/purchase.  In accordance with the eventrac organiser terms and conditions, and to comply to the new General Data Protection Regulations, organisations must supply a data retention period.  After this time, any data made available to those organisations via the eventrac platform will be securely anonymised.  Data retention periods are made visible on any entry forms.

Individual participants may opt into receiving general information from any or all of the following:

  • Eventrac (as the data processor)
  • The organisation hosting the event/activity/purchase (the organiser/s)
  • Any third parties the organisation may wish to share your details with.

In all cases, event-specific information such as your order receipt, your race details and your results will be sent to you, as, without this information, you will not be able to take part in the event itself.
