In plain english:
We take your privacy very seriously. We obviously have to pass some data onto the company who securely process our credit card payments (we don’t store or have access to you card details at any point) and we pass your details to the race organisers for the events you enter, but we also make sure they respect your data and privacy too. Any medical information you provide is encrypted and only available to race medics and the organisers around the time of the event. We do carry advertising on the site, but no personally identified data is passed onto our partners. We might say 56% of our users are female, and 30% of those are under 30 and target adverts or promotions based upon data, but nothing like email addresses or names are passed on unless you specifically request us to do so, and this will be very clear, not hidden in small print. Finally if we have to pass information on for legal reasons we will oblige, subject to the correct procedures e.g. warrants.
In legal speak:
Race Nation is committed to protecting your privacy, and takes its responsibilities regarding the security of your information and confidentiality seriously. This policy explains how Race Nation use your information and how we protect your privacy in the event that you contact us or submit any information by way of a transaction or registration with us via this website.
Security to protect your information.
In accordance with our legal obligations under the Jersey Data Protection Laws, we observe strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given to us, which also includes the prevention of unauthorized access to areas of our website where certain information may be collected or stored.
Information required to process a registration.
We require certain information to allow us to process a registration / transaction. This includes your name, address, telephone number, and email address, and also your credit or debit card number and other cardholder details. Some medical and other person information maybe requested.
Race Nation does not directly collect or store card details for online transactions or registrations. Any communication with our payment partners will be via secure pages protected by 256bit SSL Encryption. This page both encrypts and passes your personal data to our payment provider for authorization and collection to the Race Nation account.
In order to help us develop the design and layout of the site to better meet the needs of our customers we use tracking software to monitor client traffic patterns and site usage. This software does not enable us to capture any personally identifying information.
Disclosure to third parties.
Race Nation do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. We never disclose information about a customer to any other person or organization without a customers prior consent, save in the case of fraud or other criminal activity, or in order to enforce the legal rights of Race Nation. Personal information will be shared with the organizers for which you register, but we ask that the same rules for data protection and privacy are respected. We do not pass on any payment information save for the fact you have paid and the amounts.
For the avoidance of doubt, Race Nation reserves the right to pass your information on to third parties in the interests of protecting you and/or ourselves against the potential fraudulent use of a credit card, or other fraudulent act, or if acting on your behalf in pursuance of a complaint with one of our suppliers.
