Our policy is that we will not share your personal data with third-party businesses or organisations for marketing. TRANSFERRING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION (DATA) INTERNATIONALLY The personal information (data) we collect may be transferred to and stored in countries outside of the UK and the European Union. Some of these jurisdictions require different levels of protection in respect of personal information (data) and, in certain instances, the laws in those countries may be less protective than in the UK jurisdiction. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information (data) is only used in accordance with this privacy notice and applicable data protection laws and is respected and kept secure and where a third part processes your data on our behalf we will put in place appropriate safeguards as required under data protection laws. For further details please contact us by using the details in the “Contacting us” section below. HOW LONG DO WE KEEP PERSONAL INFORMATION (DATA) FOR? The duration for which we retain your personal information (data) will differ depending on the type of information and the reason why we collected it from you. However, in some cases personal information (data) may be retained on a long-term basis: for example, personal information (data) that we need to retain for legal purposes will normally be retained in accordance with usual commercial practice and regulatory requirements. Generally, where there is no other legal requirement we retain all physical and electronic records for a period of six years after your last contact with us or the end of your membership. Exceptions to this rule are:
  • CCTV records which are held for no more than 30 days unless we need to preserve the records for the purpose of prevention and detection of crime;
  • We will hold for 2 years following application or termination, paper forms submitted with personal data relating to: – unsuccessful or uncompleted membership applications; – people who have terminated their AtLAS membership; Note: Where we have transferred personal data from a paper form to an electronic record, we will keep the electronic record for the normal period (6 years).
  • Information that may be relevant to personal injury or discrimination claims may be retained until the limitation period for those types of claims has expired. For personal injury or discrimination claims this can be an extended period as the limitation period might not start to run until a long time after the event.
It is important to ensure that the personal information (data) we hold about you is accurate and up-to-date, and you should let us know if anything changes, for example if you change your phone number or email address. You may be able to update some of the personal information (data) we hold about you via our website(s). Alternatively, you can contact us by using the details in the “Contacting us” section below. YOUR RIGHTS IN RELATION TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION (DATA) You have the following rights in relation to your personal information (data):
  • the right to be informed about how your personal information (data) is being used;
  • the right to access the personal information (data) we hold about you;
  • the right to request the correction of inaccurate personal information (data) we hold about you;
  • the right to request the erasure of your personal information (data) in certain limited circumstances;
  • the right to restrict processing of your personal information (data) where certain requirements are met;
  • the right to object to the processing of your personal information (data);
  • the right to request that we transfer elements of your data either to you or another service provider; and
  • the right to object to certain automated decision-making processes using your personal information (data).
You should note that some of these rights, for example the right to require us to transfer your data to another service provider or the right to object to automated decision making, may not apply as they have specific requirements and exemptions which apply to them and they may not apply to personal information (data) recorded and stored by us. For example, we do not use automated decision making in relation to your personal data. However, some have no conditions attached, so your right to withdraw consent or object to processing for marketing and promotion are absolute rights. Whilst this privacy notice sets out a general summary of your legal rights in respect of personal information (data), this is a very complex area of law. More information about your legal rights can be found on the Information Commissioner’s website at To exercise any of the above rights, or if you have any questions relating to your rights, please contact us by using the details in the “Contacting us” section below. If you are unhappy with the way we are using your personal information (data) you can also complain to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office or your local data protection regulator. We are here to help and encourage you to contact us to resolve your complaint first. CHANGES TO THIS NOTICE We may update this privacy notice from time to time. When we change this notice in a material way, we will update the version date at the bottom of this page. For significant changes to this notice we will try to give you reasonable notice unless we are prevented from doing so. Where required by law we will seek your consent to changes in the way we use your personal information (data).
