We may also hold photographs, family details, information about farmers’ and landowners’ land boundaries and other information relevant to our hunting and social activities.

We use this information for hunt administration, organising meets and other hunt activities (including the safety of our hounds and supporters), to communicate about forthcoming events and to keep people updated with news and information about the hunt.

We collect information from you directly and may, from time to time, contact you to check that it is still accurate. Occasionally, we may also collect information about you from other organisations (for example, the AMHB).
