Members’ action needed now

Should you wish to receive by e-mail or by text message promotional material about the Club’s activities and details of other chess events which the Club is asked to promote by others you must contact the Secretary, Philip Staniland, in writing (an e-mail is sufficient and easiest to process) saying that you consent to receiving electronic communications from the Club.   If this is not done you may miss out on some notifications that may not make our website in time!! Consent can be withdrawn at any time.

When contacting Philip please ensure that you provide him with your current address, contact telephone numbers and e-mail address so that he can ensure that his membership database is compliant with the Club’s policy. If you are replying on behalf of a Junior member please include their date of birth. Children of a certain age have their own data rights and enhanced protections.

The need for this information of members is self-evident and is further explained in our Privacy Notice
