Privacy policy

Privacy Policy Intent

The Timing Team's privacy policy is intended to respect and maintain the privacy of our customers and all participants in the events we time.

Event Registration

The Timing Team has access to information collected on entrants' registration forms (electronic and/or paper). We treat this information as confidential and do not disclose it to any third parties or use it for any purpose other than to determine specific races each entrant has registered for, and which categories within those races an entrant qualifies for.

Event Results

The Timing Team provides event organisers with timing results to be posted at the event and used to award prizes on the day. We do this by electronic timing linked to tags supplied to participants which are in turn linked to the data acquired from each participant's registration form. We provide event organisers with name, city, race entered, age group and gender details, and specific categories a participant may be registered for. These details rely solely on information provided by participants to a given event on that event's registration forms either electronic or paper.

Website Results

The Timing Team displays event results on a custom developed website linked to each event's parent website. This is to enable participants and their friends to view their results both on the day and after the event. Results may be searched by entering the bib number worn on the day, or by entering your full surname as per your recorded registration details.

We do not use cookies on the results site, nor do we record or retain any personal information on visitors to the site. We collect standard industry statistics for the site as a whole, such as total visits per time period.

Participants details displayed on the results website are: participant's bib no, participant's name, city, race entered, gender, age group, time.

Do you wish to have your name withheld from results?

Participants are able to opt out of having their name and city displayed in the results and/or on the announcer data frequently used at an event to welcome entrants to the finish. In that case the participant's bib number will be shown with no name (literally "Name Withheld") or city identified. The time, gender place, and age group place would still be displayed on the web and searchable under bib number and/or the surname "Withheld". Participants are able to opt out by indicating they wish to do so at registration, or by contacting The Timing Team or the event's organisers at any stage during or after registration.

We would like to remind event participants that publically available information from a wide range of sources on the internet - not just events we time - can become available through online searching, and we encourage people not wishing to have their names published in race results to indicate that to the organiser or us when registering at or for an event.
