Additional information

Funtorun Limited uses third party sites to serve some data and images.

These third party sites are
Image libraries – clients.funtorun.co.uk. These are held in secure gallleries at www.shootproof.com
Deep Vision Consulting. We use the auto-bib recognition system provided by this company. Images are loaded to their system for the sole task of bib number recognition. No personal, or team / club / school information is transmitted.
Images are removed from Deep Vision Consulting within 6 months of the event.
Data – Gsuite drives – part of the funtorun business account with Google. Google GDPR documentation


In addition, this website is used as the home for the Leicestershire Primary Cross Country League and also the Leicestershire Secondary Cross Country League. The following information relates directly to the information, data and images related to these organisations and events.

The GDPR legislation came into force in May 2018. Prior to that, I specifically contacted the Information Commissioner’s Office to request guidance regarding the collation and publishing of results data plus the taking and marketing photographs of the events. They explained that these activities fit within their definitions of ‘Legitimate Interests‘ and also suggested some modifications to the way information was held and processed.

Results prior to 2017 were provided in PDFs – one for each race. This method is not suitable for GDPR compliance.
Results are now provided in spreadsheets held in Funtorun GSuite drives. This allows individuals data to be extracted / deleted in line with the legislation.
The PDF files prior to that date can be retained on line as they fit within the definition of Legitimate Interest.

Image processing has been radically changed for the events starting in September 2018.
Images are taken on SD cards.
This data is transferred to PCs.
On the processing devices the images are all renamed to match the event, this filename is retained for individual images throughout processing stages.
When data transfer from SD cards has been confirmed (and duplicate copies confirmed), the SD cards are reformatted and the initial files with the camera named files are deleted.
Files uploaded to the online galleries are named exactly the same as the files in the process. This allows all copies of processed files to be readily deleted on request.
Images are provided at no cost to partner organisation to help them promote these events (examples are England Athletics and The Leicestershire-Rutland Sports partnership)
