What is Personal Data?

Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession. The processing of personal data is governed by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”).

Who are we?

The MPGC is the Data Controller and this means that we determine how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.

Muckross Park Gymnastics Club was founded in 1974 and is an Artistic Gymnastics Club for gymnasts aged 3+ years based in South Dublin. We run a wide range of classes, from preschool, recreational, competitive through to adult gymnastics.

How do we process your personal data?

MPGC complies with its obligations under the “GDPR” by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.

We collect and use your personal data for the following purposes:

  • Registering students for classes, camps and competitions.
  • Registering students as members with the governing body “Gymnastics Ireland”.
  • Contacting students’ parents regarding their child for purposes related to the contractual relationship
  • To inform students’ parents of news, events, activities and classes running at MPGC.
  • We also collect, use and share anonymised as statistical or demographic data for the purpose of analysis of our website performance and usability. This data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity.

Processing of Data relating to Children under 13

By the nature of the services which are offered by MPGC it is necessary to process data relating to identifiable persons under the age of 13. This processing is conducted under the following principles:

  • We recognise that children, regardless of age, have defined rights under EU Data Protection law. As MPGC is an Irish operated service, the relevant legislation is the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003. Other jurisdictions may impose additional obligations which we endeavour to comply with as a matter of good practice but without surrendering to the laws of such jurisdictions.
  • We appreciate that parents and guardians may wish to exercise controls and restraint over the processing of personal data relating to children
  • Personal data of children which is processed by MPGC will be done at all times with the full knowledge and consent of an identified and identifiable parent.
  • At a point in time (at age 13) the child will be given full access to view, amend or delete personal data held about them but will not be able to upload, share, or otherwise broadcast their personal data without approval from a “Parent” role.

Any questions or queries about our approach to supporting the privacy rights of children should be directed to
