There are some significant changes to Data Protection legislation coming into effect on 25 May 2018 which will have an impact on how the IJA, at all levels, engages with its members. It is important that every IJA Club, and indeed every member, is aware of how these changes in the law will affect the ways in which members’ personal information can be collected and used for IJA purposes.
Data Protection can be summarised in the following ‘7 Principles’’
When you register as a member of IJA to access the members area of our website, enter a competition, register for a coaching/referee/training seminar specific to Judo, we may require more specific information about you, such as name, e-mail address, postcode etc. We use this information to verify your IJA membership, to make you aware of new services, which may be of interest to you, or to contact you regarding site changes and updates. These requests will be specific to the business of the company. You may opt out of receiving these updates at any time by sending an email to email@example.com
As a general rule, the IJA does not request sensitive data ie medical history unless absolutely necessary, request for sensitive data will only relate to specific judo events that require sensitive data, your consent will be required should sensitive data be requested.
We do not disclose your individual visits to our site, or personal information that you provide, such as your name, e-mail address, postcode, etc., to any outside parties, except when we believe the law requires it. We are not responsible for any information inputted outside our site.
Irishjudoassociation.ie values your opinion and comments, so we may from time to time conduct online surveys. Your participation in these surveys is entirely optional. Typically, the information is aggregated and used to make improvements to the development of our sport, improve our site and to develop appealing content, features and promotions for you. Your contribution to any survey will be anonymous unless otherwise stated in the survey.
Please submit any feedback to us. Feedback is used primarily for internal purposes to aid us in improving the site. Any feedback submitted becomes our property and we may use feedback, such as success stories, for marketing purposes, or to contact you for further feedback. We will seek your written or email approval before using your personal success story for marketing purposes.
