Walkers

Purposes of processing your personal data

We need to process your personal information for administrative purposes to support your participation and to make sure you are aware that you walk at your own risk. We will also contact you about the walks you register to take part in. With your consent, we will also send you information about related walks and other events.

When you register to join a walk you will be asked to complete an anonymous health survey. This is entirely optional and is only used for monitoring and reporting.  Any health information you provide on this survey is stored separately to your contact details.

Categories of personal data and lawful basis

In order to provide this service, we may need to process some or all of the following categories of personal information:

  • contact details (name, address, email, phone number). 

Under data protection legislation, this processing is permitted because we have a legitimate interest in administering the walk and contacting walkers.

Who we share your personal data with

We will share your information with the Ramblers Walking for Health as joint data controllers.

Categories of personal data and lawful basis
