We will store all the personal information you provide on Kent Golf’s secure (password- and firewall- protected) servers. All electronic transactions you make to or receive from us will be encrypted using SSL technology.

Use of Mailchimp for Email Newsletters

Where you have subscribed for our email newsletters and these are processed through Mailchimp, your personal data is stored on our IT infrastructure and shared with Mailchimp as a data processor.  The information may, therefore, be transferred and stored securely outside the European Union. Where that is the case, it will be subject to equivalent legal protection through the use of Model Contract Clauses and the supplier’s membership of the Privacy Shield scheme.  Mailchimp sets out how it protects your personal information in its Privacy Policy.
