We collect these personal details to enable us to provide our services to you.  It is important that the details we hold about you are accurate and it is important that if any of your personal data changes during your relationship with us that you inform us.

How we collect your personal data?

We collect most of the information from you directly by way of the entry forms you complete and from communications with you in the build-up to any rally.  We may also use publicly accessible information.

How will we use the information about you?

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to, most commonly, in and about our performance of the contract for any rally which you have entered.
We will not share your data with any third party except as strictly necessary in connection with any rally which you have entered.
We will not use your data for marketing or unsolicited marketing purposes except to inform you of forthcoming rallies.

Who will have access to my personal information?

Employees of ERA may be given access to your personal data for the purposes of providing rally services.  Their use is always limited to the performance of their duties as employees.  No employees are permitted to access information that is not relevant to their duties and they are required to keep all information confidential.
Our accountants and bookkeeper will see certain of your personal details relevant to their activities on our behalf.  They are subject to strict confidentiality  requirements and they will not pass on your details, unless there has been an error by us or fraud is suspected.

Where your data is stored?

Your information is stored on our computer network and database management systems located in England.

International transfers

Certain limited information you provide to us is passed to our international agents based within or outside the EEA (European Economic Area) but only in so far as this is necessary for the purposes of and in relation to any relevant rally you have entered.  If this changes we will contact you first to obtain your consent.

Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example, if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
