Privacy Policy

Newtonmore Camanachd Club is a member of the Camanachd Association and is a controller of personal information provided to us for the purposes of running the club.

Playing Members and coaches personal data

When you register as a member or renew your membership (or if you are a parent or guardian registering or renewing on behalf of a child) we will ask you for certain personal information including name, address, e mail address, contact telephone number and any medical conditions or allergies.

We need that information to manage you/or your child’s membership. We use this information to set up your Camanachd Association membership and insurance through the Shinty Azolve membership system.

Player and coach photographs with short biographies are routinely displayed on our website If any player or coach does not want their photo to be displayed they can request that. Please note that photography takes place at certain of our events, matches, coffee mornings and events. By attending these you agree to your image being photographed and grant your permission, free of charge, for us to use such pictures (including publication on the internet and social media.)

You can ask to be removed from our mailing lists at any time and reminders about this are included with all our e mails.
