What is our lawful basis for holding and processing your personal data?

Data protection law requires us to rely on one or more lawful grounds to process your personal information. We consider the following grounds to be relevant:

  • Performance of a contract: where we are entering into a contract with you or performing our obligations under it, including selling, supplying, delivering and invoicing for membership, goods and services.
  • Legitimate interests: where it is necessary to achieve our legitimate interests (as long as the information is used fairly, and does not duly impact your rights), including promoting our organisation, managing member relationships; understanding your preferences and needs; complying with our legal and regulatory obligations; and handling contacts and queries.
  • Consent: where you have provided specific consent for us to use your personal information in a certain way, such as to send email marketing. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.

How is your personal data collected?

We collect your personal data by direct interaction when you supply it to us:

  • when joining or renewing NSRA membership
  • by filling in an on-line response form on our website
  • when registering as a user on the NSRA Forum
  • when booking to attend an NSRA event as a visitor, trader, or exhibitor
  • when providing details for NSRA vehicle valuation and/or insurance
  • by contacting us by any means with any enquiries.

Our website/server collects browser details and IP information when you visit our website or forum.

What type of personal data is collected?

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified.

In order to pursue the objectives of the NSRA, manage membership services, and organise NSRA events, we collect and process details of our members, event attendees, traders, exhibitors, partners, suppliers, and subcontractors. We collect contact information including name, address and post code, date of birth, phone numbers, email addresses, payment details, email messages and correspondence. We will also store preferences and consents regarding storage and communications. The lawful basis for this is: performance of a contract, legitimate interest, and consent.

NSRA website: You may visit our website without providing any personal information.
Our web servers collect technical information about visits to our website including the type of device used to access it, your IP address and geographical location. The lawful basis for this is legitimate interest – monitoring and securing our website.

NSRA Forum: You may visit our forum without providing any personal information, but to take part in discussion you will need to register. We will collect your name, username, email address, approximate location, membership number and password when you register as a user on the forum. This is required to manage the forum permissions applicable to members and non-members, and to discourage spam registrations. The lawful basis for this is performance of a contract – managing member privileges, and legitimate interest – managing, monitoring and securing the forum.
We collect any additional information that you choose to add to your account or user profile. This and any other information that you post on the forum is public, unencrypted and non-confidential. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in public areas of our forum. The lawful basis for this is legitimate interest – in providing and managing our on-line forum.


We may take photographs of members attending NSRA events and we may wish to use them for marketing or advertising purposes, for publishing in our club magazine, or for use on our website. We will seek to obtain the required consent for publication. The lawful basis for this is: legitimate interest and consent.

Special Categories of data

We do not hold or process Special Categories of personal data (race, ethnic origin, politics, religion, trade union membership, genetics, biometrics, health, sex life, sexual orientation, criminal convictions or offences).


We do not offer membership to children. Adult NSRA members may provide names of children only for the purposes of recording them as part of a ‘family membership’. We will seek suitable consent for the storage of such data.

How do we use your personal data?

We use personal information only to pursue the objectives of the NSRA, including:

  • Administration of membership details
  • Provision of member services
  • Publishing and distribution of the members magazine and other membership information.
  • Contacting members with information relating to membership and details of NSRA activities,  events and club matters
  • Organisation and delivery of NSRA events
  • Administration of the NSRA insurance scheme
  • Administration of the NSRA website and forum
  • Processing of payments for membership, event bookings and merchandise.
  • Administration of the NSRA and management of our relationships with members, event attendees, traders, exhibitors, partners, suppliers, and subcontractors.

In common with most websites, our website/server automatically collects visitors IP addresses, browser information and other technical information. This is used to count and analyse visitors to the website, but not to track you or personally identify you.


We may use your email address for occasional low-volume marketing. If you are an NSRA member, or an NSRA event attendee or trader, or you have otherwise requested information from us, and you have not opted out of receiving marketing, we may use your contact details to provide you with information about our organisation and events that we think may be of interest to you.

You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages by contacting us at any time.

Automated decision making

We do not use any personal data for automated decision making or profiling.

Sharing your information with third parties

NSRA members name and address information is shared with a third party distributor for the purpose of mailing out the NSRA magazine, the ‘Street Gasser’, and other related club information.

Personal details provided for the purposes of arranging insurance through the NSRA’s insurance scheme will be shared with our partner insurance company.

If you choose to join or renew NSRA membership, or pre-book an NSRA event using our on-line systems, personal details and payment information will be shared with a third party payment processor. Any transactions involving card payment are handled via a secure server.

We may share your information with business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors only for the performance of any contract we enter into with you as an NSRA member or as an attendee at an NSRA event.

We do not sell or rent your information to third parties, or share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

We may disclose personal information if we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
