The data processing is carried out using computers and/or IT enabled tools, following organisational procedures and modes strictly related to the purposes indicated. In addition to the Cotswold Way Association, in some cases, the data may be accessible to certain types of persons involved with the operation of this application (administration, sales, marketing, legal, system administration) or external parties (such as third-party technical service providers, mail carriers, hosting providers, IT companies, communications agencies) appointed, if necessary, as data processors for the Cotswold Way Association. The updated list of these parties may be requested at any time.


The Cotswold Way Association may process personal data relating to users if one of the following applies:

  • Users have given their consent for one or more specific purposes. Note: Under some legislations the owner may be allowed to process personal data until the user objects to such processing (“opt-out”), without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases. This, however, does not apply, whenever the processing of personal data is subject to European data protection law.
  • Provision of data is necessary for the performance of an agreement with the user and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof.
  • Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the owner is subject.
  • Processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the owner.
  • Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the owner or by a third party.

In any case, the owner will gladly help to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and whether the provision of personal data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.


The data is processed at the Cotswold Way Association registered office and in any other places where the parties involved in the processing are located as detailed above.

Depending on the user’s location, data transfers may involve transferring the user’s data to a country other than our own. To find out more about the place of processing of such transferred data, users can check the section containing details about the processing of personal data.

Users are also entitled to learn about the legal basis of data transfers to a country outside the European Union or to any international organisation governed by public international law or set up by two or more countries, such as the UN, and about the security measures taken by the owner to safeguard their data.

If any such transfer takes place, users can find out more by checking the relevant section of this document (example Google Inc.) or inquire with the owner using the information provided in the contact section.

Furthermore, the Cotswold Way Association may be obliged to retain personal data for a longer period whenever required to do so for the performance of a legal obligation or upon order of an authority.

Once the retention period expires, personal data shall be deleted. Therefore, the right to access, the right to erasure, the right to rectification and the right to data portability cannot be enforced after expiration of the retention period.
