Hello, and thanks for visiting our highly tedious Privacy Page.

At Pudsey & Bramley we care about the privacy of both our members and visitors to our website and are committed to being upfront about our privacy practices.

This page is split into two main sections:

  • Website Terms of Use & Privacy Policy
  • Membership Privacy Notice

If you have any questions, comments or concerns about any aspect of these Privacy Policies, please see the CONTACT US section at the bottom of this page.



This policy covers your interactions with this website, what information may be collected about you, how it is used, and how it is securely kept. It also explains your right to access your information.

Who we are

Pudsey & Bramley A.C. (P&B) is an athletic club affiliated to England Athletics (EA). Our website address is: www.pudseybramley.com; i.e. this one you are visiting right now.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service, Akismet, who are operated by Automattic and whose privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Like most website operators P&B collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. P&B’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how P&B’s visitors use its website. From time to time, P&B may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Visitors to P&B’s website may choose to interact with the site in ways that require the gathering of personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that P&B gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. P&B collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our News Blog. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

P&B’s website makes use of Google Analytics to monitor the usage of this website. Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), while P&B is the Data Controller, Google is the Data Processor and their own Privacy Compliance page can be viewed here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/compliance/

Who we share your data with

P&B do not share any information gathered through this website with third parties and do not use any details for marketing purposes.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

News and Results

Race or competition results achieved by current or past members may be published on our Results or Club Achievements pages. Similarly, names of competitors who are non-club members may also be used in Race Reports, News items, or results pages of any race we organise or are involved in. You have the right to have any information we publish removed or corrected.


Pudsey & Bramley AC genuinely appreciate the work of our sport’s photographers, who often endure the worst of the weather and mud as they diligently pursue their craft!

We are lucky within the community of fellrunning that there are a number of photographers, both amateur and professional, who are happy for their work to be shared and reproduced online without the need for strict permission; however, we also acknowledge that the copyright of a photograph belongs with the photographer, and as such we will always strive to appropriately credit any photos we use for P&B News articles and Race Reports.

If you encounter an incorrectly credited photo, or if you are the photographer (or subject) of a photo you would like removed from the site for any reason, please get in touch with us and we would be happy to amend as necessary.

How we protect your data

P&B takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information. Although we take reasonable measures to maintain the safety and security of your personal information, please note that no transmission over the Internet can ever be guaranteed to be secure. Consequently, please note that we cannot fully guarantee the security of any personal information that you transfer over the Internet to us.
