A new EU data protection and privacy law came into force on the 25th May 2018, it is called "General Data Protection Regulation" (GDPR) in English. GDPR has to be adhered to by all businesses/organisations whether for profit/nonprofit/volunteer/member [including sports organisations like sailing clubs and class associations] that store, process and make use of data that can identify an individual person.

The Osprey Class Association [UK] committee have produced a Class Privacy Policy document as required by GDPR which is based on their current understanding of GDPR. This document may be updated as new guidance, from likes of RYA and others, becomes available.

The Class use the Matomo [previously known as Piwik] vistor tracking, similar to Google Analytics, to record who visits the class web site and what information they view. This information will help us to know where our visitors come from and what content is popular/unpopular. But we can only do so if you are happy for your visit to be recorded. By default tracking for each visitor is set so that there is no tracking. However we would be appreciative if you would consent to being tracked by clicking the box below
