LGCEYFC uses this data to register the player(s) with the relevant leagues which includes passing on the players and parents personal data (including name, email, gender, photo, DOB, phone number) and for football related communications (non-commercial). 
This data is also shared with authorised club officials who need it to communicate information about training and fixtures and for them to be able to contact parents/emergency contacts in the case of an emergency. Medical details (if provided) are also shared with team officials for awareness and in case of an emergency where this information may need to be passed on to medical staff.
Any additional information, such as proof of data of birth documents, when received, is attached securely to your membership record or you can also upload yourself through your dashboard if you do not wish to email them.
Once a player registration expires they are retained for 36 months and it is then automatically archived securely online in the same system for 10 years.
