Privacy Notice for ClubManager

Last updated 18th August 2021

Club Manager Limited takes security and privacy seriously. This Privacy Notice explains how we collect, store and use personal data when you browse (the "ClubManager website"), use the ClubManager application ("ClubManager") or otherwise provide your personal data to us. Please read this Privacy Notice carefully to understand how we will treat your personal data.

This Privacy Notice relates to ClubManager as a data controller. This means that it applies where we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use your personal information. We are required to provide you with the information contained in this privacy notice.

About us

ClubManager provides a transformative member management system for clubs, associations, charities and businesses that delivers tons of functionality without complexity. 

Using your personal data

If anyone can be identified by any information that we collect, this information is called ‘personal data’. Data protection law says that ClubManager must have a reason or ‘purpose’ for collecting and using personal data.

Our purposes are:

  1. Providing ClubManager

  2. Internal record keeping

  3. Managing our relationship with you

  4. Developing and improving our products and services

  5. Contacting you for marketing purposes

  6. Providing insights

How we ensure that what we do with your information is lawful

ClubManager can only collect and use your personal information if we have a lawful basis to do so. The bases we use to legitimise our processing are:

1. Providing ClubManager

ClubManager does not intentionally collect or process any special categories of data in the provision of ClubManager.

When we enter into a contract with you we are also a “data processor”. This means amongst other things that you as the Subscriber controls each Invited User’s level of access to the relevant organisation and Service at all times and can revoke or change an Invited User’s access, or level of access, at any time and for any reason. Where we are a data processor, we will process personal data only in accordance with the written instructions of the data controller, and as permitted by the UK GDPR and other relevant regulations. Where a client is based outside the European Economic Area it is the responsibility of that client to ensure that it complies with its domestic privacy laws.

2. Internal record keeping

3. Managing our relationship with you

We want to establish and improve trust in ClubManager. By developing relationships with our clients there is an expectation that both parties will benefit.

4. Developing and improving our products and services

We monitor patterns of usage, such as login dates and volumes of data, so we can understand how people are using ClubManager to develop and improve our products. To aid in monitoring patterns of usage, we log your IP address when you use the website. This is your computer's individual identification number that is assigned to your computer when connected to the Internet. We also monitor traffic information when you visit our site or read our emails, including things like page visits, email clicks, purchases, referring sites, and video viewings.

We use this information to improve our website, advertising, promotions, and to understand customer purchasing behaviour. Please see Section: Use of Cookies below regarding cookies.

5. Contacting you for marketing purposes

We may use your personal data to contact you by email, fax, post, SMS, social media and/or telephone to let you know about our other ClubManager and/or third party services, content, offers or product ranges which may be of interest to you. We may also use your membership data to enable us to tailor these notifications (in order to make sure what we are sending you is relevant). This is called profiling. If you would like us to stop providing you with such notifications or to stop us creating a profile of you, just contact us at

Please note, this may take up to one working day to take effect.

You cannot stop service emails from ClubManager (for example, a reminder that your subscription is expiring) whilst an account is active, as this is part of your contract.

If you are signed up to marketing communications, cancelling your ClubManager account will not cancel your marketing preference.

We believe that marketing communicates the reasons why consumers should choose us, including the benefits, the price, and the unique features we offer. It also helps maintain relationships with our clients and creates engagement.

6. Providing insights

We monitor anonymous, aggregated information about account and membership data so that we can produce insights about small businesses finance. For example, based on an anonymous, aggregate data analysis, we may produce a white paper that reports how clubs run manage membership renewals. We may share these insights with customers, on our blog or other promotional material, use them internally to improve our product and communications, or share with other interested third parties. Just to be clear - we will never identify you or your business in such communications or white papers and will never report data in such a way that your business could be identified.


Where you have given consent to us using your personal data you have the right to withdraw your consent and we will then stop processing it. This will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. If withdrawal of consent may affect the way we can deliver our service/s to you we will tell you at the time. Please also see the ‘What are your rights?’ section below.

Information Others Provide to Us

We may receive information from others (e.g. your bank) that you have authorised that third party to provide to us. This could include the initial information to enable us to create your account (e.g. your full name, your email address and your business type) and also your bank transaction data.

Who do we share your information with?

We use third parties to assist us in providing ClubManager from time to time, and in those cases will disclose your personal and/or membership data to them. We only share your data with third parties that we trust, and where there are assurances in place as to how they will protect the data.

You may grant third party access to your personal or membership data by enabling the ClubManager API for that third party if you have a contract with us. At all times, this access is controlled by you.

We may contact you if the specific arrangement we have in place with a third party which impacts you is changing and / or coming to an end and to let you know what will take place next.

We may also share your personal and membership data with third parties:

We also utilise a number of carefully selected third parties to help provide our services to you. Examples of these functions include email, providing marketing assistance and data analysis, data management, handling credit card transactions and providing customer service. In choosing to work with any such third parties, we will always ensure that the security policies and confidentiality arrangements of those third parties adhere to the same requirements we ourselves impose and expect, as a minimum. No ownership rights to the data will be transferred to any third party.

For a full list of data processors and details of the adequate safeguards in place in respect of data transfers outside the EEA, please see here.

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the United Kingdom (UK). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the UK who work for us, one of our group companies or for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. Where personal data is processed outside the UK this is likely to be a ‘restricted transfer’ and so we must ensure that a safeguard is in place that is recognised by the representative supervisory authority of the United Kingdom. This is the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). The safeguard is most likely to be use of one of the ICO's standard contractual clauses.

Where our data processors are based in the EEA they must also comply with the original General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR).
