Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Pimlico Chess Club is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This policy explains when, how, and why we collect personal data about people.

Who we are

Pimlico Chess Club is a chess club playing at Churchill Gardens Tenants Association, Glasgow Terrace, London, SW1V 3AL .

How we collect your information

The only information we obtain about our members, the entrants in the tournament we organise each Summer (the “Pimlico Summer Tournament”) and the captains in the Central London League (together, “Participants”) is provided by them directly.    We do not collect personal data simply as a result of a person visiting our website.

How your information is used

The personal data we obtain is applied for the following purposes, namely to:

  • Obtain payment of fees to fund the operation of the Club.
  • Identify players on the English Chess Federation (ECF) Website.
  • Submit details to the ECF to enrol Pimlico members as ECF members.
  • Register members to play for Pimlico in competitions which Pimlico might enter.
  • Communicating with Participants for the purposes of running the chess club, including selecting and organising teams and other chess events, including the Pimlico Summer Tournament.

Consistently with this, the contact details provided to us by Participants may be used to contact them by mail, telephone, fax or e-mail for the purposes of the Chess Club. Participants also authorise us to confirm to leagues that their chess-related personal information may be displayed on league websites.

We will hold personal data for as long as a person is a Participant and for a reasonable time afterwards.

Who can access information

Unless required by law, we do not sell, rent or otherwise share personal data with other third parties.


Participants can ask for a copy of the data we hold about them. If a Participant provides information about another person, it is their responsibility to ensure that the other person has given their explicit consent to the processing of their personal data.

Should you have any unresolved complaints about the way we process your personal data, you have the right to make a formal complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

Our website may contain links to other websites. This privacy policy only applies to the use of our website. We cannot be responsible for other websites even if accessed via links on our website.
