What data do we collect


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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

If you use the contact form on our site your data will be sent to the appropriate person and may be stored in the interest of answering your query. We will not share your personal information with anyone unless required (i.e. Firearm Safety Course bookings).


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 visit our login page, 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.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. 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.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Our website uses Google Analytics to view website statistics and make informed choices about improvements to the website. Google Analytics automatically collects users’ IP addresses; however, this data has been made anonymous, so neither ourselves, or Google, will see your actual IP address.

Who we share your data with

Your data will only be shared with the appropriate staff members relevant to your contact. For example, when you fill out a form to reserve a place in a shooting event, the staff member’s responsible for organising the event will need to know certain information. Likewise with Firearm Safety Courses, Group Bookings, Private Training and Membership.

How long we retain your data

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

For users that register on our website (if any), 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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Additional information

How we protect your data

All data from the website is stored on secured servers and protected behind a firewall.

We ensure that our club is securely locked outside of hours and that our computers are kept away from the general public. All accounts are password protected and only accessible to the relevant parties.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

Due to the nature of our industry, if we are requested to by authorities, we may have to provide them with personal details of our club members.
