Your Privacy

You can view our standard society privacy statements here. If this particular society has any amendments to this privacy statement, they will be shown below.

HOW WE USE YOUR DATA

We ask to collect your Lichess and Chess.com Usernames (if you have them, don't worry if you don't!) so you can join the society's online games.

As a member of the Heriot-Watt Chess Society, you may have the opportunity to compete in chess tournaments with other Universities and external organisations. 

If you choose to compete in these events, we may ask you to share additional data with the society so it can be shared with the tournament organisers. We expect this data to include name, chess rating, age, email and course of study. This data varies depending on the tournament organiser.

We will never give this data to an external organisation without your explicit consent first.
