If you’ve opted-in to receive information and offers relating to the Club (for example by ticking a box on one of our websites or apps), then we’ll provide this information to you by email, text, or phone.  

We also rely on your consent to process information about your use of our websites, apps and social media sites, so that we can improve your browsing experience and deliver online advertising that is relevant to you. And occasionally we may rely on your consent to process health or other sensitive information.

Where we rely on your consent to process personal data, you have the right to withdraw or decline your consent at any time and where we rely on legitimate interests, you have the right to object.

  • to provide you with certain personal data in a structured, machine-readable format and to transmit that data to another organisation;

These rights may not always apply, for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have a compelling legitimate interest in keeping.  If this is the case, then we’ll let you know when we respond to your request.
