The West Wakanda Bike Club (WWBC) collects personal information for use in running the club. This information is required to perform club functions such as mailing and e-mailing of newsletters.
WWBC collects your name, address, phone number, and other optional information such as, but not limited to, e-mail address, ride level preferences, and volunteer status. If you participate in a club ride, we will ask you to sign a release and provide your name, signature, and emergency phone number.
The Membership Officer is responsible for the collection, maintenance, and accuracy of all personal information collected in association with membership activities by WWBC.
WWBC does not release personal information to commercial interests. WWBC may, at the discretion release personal information to non-commercial groups who wish to contact our current and/or former members for cycling related activities. The personal information is only released for one time use. WWBC will never release e-mail addresses to third parties for any reason.
Members can volunteer to become Ride Leaders, and lead rides for the club. All scheduled rides are posted on our public web site. We publish the leader’s name, and phone number (if supplied by the member and the member has explicitly not opted out of displaying their phone number). If a ride leader has supplied WWBC with an e-mail address in order to use our web-based ride schedule administration system, a mechanism on our site will publish that person’s name and allow that person to be contacted via e-mail by the general public without publishing his/her address on our web site. If the member chooses to reply to the e-mail, the original sender will see the member’s e-mail address.
All personal information given to the club is deemed to be public to other club members. Personal information is never given to the general public. WWBC may aggregate membership information for public release, but it would not contain any personally identifying information.
Members can request that WWBC not disclose their personal information to other WWBC members, or any other groups, by visiting our web site or by contacting the Membership Officer. Former members that do not want WWBC to retain their personal information should contact the Membership Officer.
