Online Forms

Our site uses forms to provide an annual CARTEN100 event booking form and collect information from users who want to participate in a CARTEN100 cycling event. Wufoo is proprietary online form technology used to develop and host our booking forms. This service does use cookies to enrich the user interface and experience, and to provide CARTEN100 with booking analytics. For a detailed breakdown of this cookies please review the Wufoo Cookie Policy.  

This Wufoo service is also used to securely collect all booking data from our users. This can be seen via the secure ‘padlock’ on users’ web browsers whenever accessing our booking forms. Your information is submitted to using TLS cryptographic protocols and is held within a secure Wufoo database until the event has sold out. This data is encrypted at rest and is stored in the US on Wufoo servers but its handling satisfies the provisions of GDPR as Wufoo is compliant under the EU-US Privacy Shield. Please see the compliance statement here.

All booking data is then removed and deleted from the Wufoo database and exported in Microsoft Excel format over a secure encrypted connection to CARTEN100 computer server where it is held within an encrypted form for the duration of the event. Once the event has been completed then all booking data is deleted after one year.

Please also see the Wufoo Privacy Policy and their GDPR statement.

Event Booking and Registration

Booking onto a CARTEN100 cycle event requires more detailed registration. The information that we require is mandatory for us to process bookings and allow riders to attend the event.

We collect this information for the sole process of completing your request to book onto a CARTEN event. We will hold this information securely for the duration of the event. It will be used to inform you about important information leading up to the event, to deliver your rider’s pack and shirt orders, and to ensure that we have your key details and contacts during the event and to allow you to make use of our free Cardiff to Tenby hand luggage offer.

We remove all of your personal data within one year of the event completing although your name will be retained as a record of you attending the event and your email address will be retained for the purpose of our newsletter.

Event Payment

We do not process payments ourselves. Instead we simply use Wufoo to link your booking form to PayPal. Once you have inputted your login details and made payment then PayPal will inform us by means of a payment reference. This is then recorded against your booking registration. Please see the PayPal Privacy Policy.


By consenting to this privacy notice you are giving us permission to process your personal data specifically for the purposes identified. You may withdraw your consent any time should you wish to remove yourself from the event. You may do this by contacting CARTEN100.
