Collection of Personal Data

Supply of Personal Data to the Club is non-obligatory, but failure to do so may result in the Club being unable to process your application(s) or to provide facilities and services to you.
Occasionally, you may need to provide Personal Data about other individuals to the Club (e.g. spouse or children or guests). In that event, to comply with the Ordinance, you are required to have first obtained the authorisation of such individuals before using, disclosing and transferring their Personal Data, including giving consent on their behalf to the Club's possible use, disclosure and transfer of their Personal Data, for the purposes you would want to achieve from the Club. If necessary, the Club may require you to provide to the Club any supporting documents which may be necessary to prove such authorisation.

Disclosure of Personal Data
Personal Data supplied to the Club will be kept confidential. However, the Club may, where such disclosure is necessary to satisfy the purpose, or a directly related purpose, for which the Personal Data was collected, provide such Personal Data to the following parties:
The Club may also disclose your Personal Data to third parties: (i) when required by law, by court order or in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry; or (ii) pursuant to the Club's good faith belief that disclosure is required by law or otherwise necessary to the establishment of legal claims or defences, to obtain legal advice, to exercise and defend the Club's legal rights or to protect the life, body or property of any individual. This also applies when the Club has reason to believe that disclosing the Personal Data is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing interference with the Club's rights or properties, whether intentionally or otherwise, or when anyone else could be harmed by activities causing such interference.
The Club may also transfer any information it holds about you as an asset in connection with a merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of the Club or as part of a corporate reorganisation or other change in corporate control.
The Personal Data that the Club collects or obtains may be transferred to jurisdictions that offer lesser protection of personal data than that provided in your jurisdiction. By submitting Personal Data to the Club or using any of the Club's services and facilities, you understand and consent to such transfer.
