We use this data in order to reply, contact you and answer your questions and help you through the process of booking an activity with us. We save this data in our contacts email lists for future arrangements, reference and confirmation until the completion of your participation in our activities. We then either store this information safely or erase it.
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.

No one. Your email address and name is used, handled and processed only by the person/employee replying to your emails from Odysea office. The only occasions that we will share your data with a third party will be when you have completed a physical or pdf participation form for us. Then you will be specifically informed about how we use those data after you submit the completed participation form to us. Then the third party will be either British Canoeing Awarding Body for processing your membership, certification or awarding, either a partner company or coach for administrative purposes.
How long we retain your data
This will be as long as we need them for all administrative purposes. We keep your contact stored in our email addresses lists for as long as we need to keep communication with you, regarding your booking or replying to any coaching related questions and feedback.
