The Dutch Cadet Class Association (DCCA) processes personal data.
The DCCA likes to do this transparently and openly to our members and relations.

Personal data are for example your name, address, age or combinations of data that can be traced to your person. Photos and video material can also be classified as personal data.

Whose personal data does the DCCA collect?

The DCCA collects data from persons with whom the DCCA directly or indirectly has, or had, a relationship. These are for example:
Youth members, their parents, trainers, regular members, special members, honorary members and volunteers from the Dutch Cadet Class Association and the affiliated Squadrons.
Persons who want to become a member and their parent (s) and / or carer (s), and persons who have ever been a member and their parent (s) and / or carer (s) s.
Individuals associated with sponsors, partners, organizations and suppliers.

Who processes and has access to the personal data within the DCCA?

All organizational units of the DCCA process personal data. The board as described in the rules of procedure and also the committees and their members appointed by the board.

Why does the DCCA process personal data?

This explanation why the DCCA processes personal data makes things clear. The DCCA processes these personal data because they want to keep the Cadet, as a unique, accessible two-man training boat and racing sailing class for the Netherlands, to expand and grow.
If you want to become a member of the DCCA or want to start as a volunteer or want to enter into a different relationship with us, the DCCA needs personal information. Example: With the help of your data, the DCCA can register you correctly as a member, take care of your insurance and for example a Declaration on Behavior for your applications as a volunteer and so on and so on.
Once you are a member or relation of the Dutch Cadet Class Association, the DCCA may use your name and address to be able to contact you and to inform you about membership-related matters, competitions, results, training, events, contact with possible crews, helmsmen and women.
The nature of our sport requires not only the efforts of our sailing members, but also requires special efforts from the parents, supervisors, trainers and volunteers. The DCCA therefore also uses data such as having driving licenses, boatmasters' certificates, VHF certificates, first aid diplomas and whether or not having a towing hook on your car.
If you want to become a member, the DCCA naturally needs your data to inform you and answer your questions.
If you have been a member, the DCCA will keep you informed. What the DCCA will preserve for all eternity is your name, with whom you sailed, with which boat, where and when. This requires the DCCA for the results over the years.
Partner, sponsor, volunteer, supplier? The DCCA only stores and processes the data that is necessary and required by law and regulations.
The DCCA also produces, collects and processes visual material, photos and video, of events, competitions and training sessions. Because the DCCA and their relations have an interest in stimulating, promoting and propagating cadet sailing, this visual material can be used for promotional purposes, website, social media, documentation, presentations and explanation and evaluation of competitions and training.

Does the DCCA also process special personal data?

Special personal data are sensitive data, for example about health, criminal record, ethnic data or data concerning race.
The DCCA processes special personal data if this has to be done on the basis of the law, with the consent of person(s) involved and if the security requires it. In these cases, the DCCA will only process this data if this is necessary for our activities.
Sailing is a sport where safety and health have special attention. At competitions, the DCCA and their relationships regularly depend on services from others / other organizations. If the situation so requires, the DCCA will, for that purpose, also share personal data with these third parties.

Does the DCCA share personal data?

In addition to publishing results and visual material, the DCCA also shares personal details of their members, parent (s) and / or carer (s), trainers and coaches with other national classes related to the International Cadet Class Association (ICCA). Only necessary name and contact details are shared for the purposes of competitions and events organized by these classes and their possible subclasses (squadrons). This data is shared according to our standard processor agreement. Draft processor agreement-DCCA-June-2018.pdf

What rules apply to the processing of personal data by the DCCA?

When processing personal data, the DCCA is, subject to the above, bound to the applicable laws and regulations.

How do I know which data the DCCA processes from me?

Because time and resources are limited, the DCCA can not do 24/7 security on the online digital resources. Therefore the data can not be consulted online. The DCCA saves as little digital as possible on resources that are publicly accessible. This is done by the DCCA for safety and data security.
