- Communicating with members for the purposes of organising and running the Congress, and other chess events run by Shropshire Chess Association.

Consistent with this, the contact details provided to us by members may be used to contact them by mail, telephone, or email for the purposes of Congress organisation.

We will hold personal data for as long as a person is a Congress entrant and for a reasonable time afterwards.

This data is held pursuant to the legitimate interests of Shropshire Chess Congress which is the basis on which your data as set out is processed.
