WHAT IS A COOKIE?

A cookie is a tiny text file stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages.

WHY WE USE COOKIES

We may use cookies to collect information about your computer, including operating system and browser type, for system administration. This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual directly. We then use that information to monitor usage and improve the user experience.

Please note: 'Cookies' cannot harm your computer. We don't store personally identifiable information in the cookies we create, but we do use information gathered from them to help improve your experience of the site.

USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site (see above).

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser (see below). However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

DATA COLLECTED WITHOUT THE USE OF COOKIES

Data concerning the users saved without the use of cookies is collected on submission of the form on the ‘Newsletter Registration’ widget. This page allows visitors to register their interest in a newsletter and has a form that requires the user to enter their personal details (in the form of their email address) for delivery to Connect Sport Ltd. Connect Sport Ltd will then use this information to send newsletters to the visitor.

WHAT WE USE THIS INFORMATION FOR

We use information collected and held about you in the following ways:

  • To personalize the way content is presented to you according to your individual preferences and interests.
  • For service administration, which means we may contact you in connection with services (e.g. newsletter services) or products that you request from us or with queries about your registration.
  • To provide you with information, products, or services which we consider may interest you, or to allow selected third parties to do the same, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes.
  • To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us.
  • To contact you in connection with contributions you make to the Website. If you post or send offensive, inappropriate, or objectionable content in or to the Website, or otherwise engage in any disruptive behavior, we may use your personal information to prevent such behavior.
  • For statistical and marketing analysis.
  • For the purposes of administering, maintaining, developing, and improving the Website.
  • To notify you about changes to the Website and/or our services.
  • You will not receive unsolicited marketing communications from us and/or from third parties selected by us unless you have expressly agreed to this.

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

We may disclose your personal information to any member of our organsiation, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties:

To the extent necessary to enable us to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us or to fulfil any request you have made for particular services.

In the event that we sell all or substantially all of our business or assets to a third party, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective buyer of such business or assets, and may sell and transfer personal data collected through the Website in connection with and pursuant to the sale of any such business or assets. Special categories of data and data subject to confidentiality regulations (such as data revealing racial or ethnic origin, trade union membership, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs) will not be disclosed without prior consent of the data subject, except where it is strictly necessary and demanded of Connect Sport Ltd to prevent threats to state and public security or to prosecute serious crimes.

For marketing purposes (by third parties), but only where you have consented to such disclosure when submitting your personal information.

If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms and conditions and other agreements; to operate our systems properly; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Connect Sport Ltd, or others.

WHERE YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS STORED

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing, or processing outside the EEA. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy and, to the extent that such transfer is within our control, with the relevant protections required by law in place.

The Website is accessible via the internet and so may potentially be accessed by anyone around the world. Other users may access the site from outside the EEA. This means that where you choose to post your data on a public area of the Website, it could be accessed from anywhere around the world and therefore a transfer of your data outside of the EEA may be deemed to have occurred. You consent to such transfer of your data for and by way of this purpose.

SECURITY

The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

YOUR RIGHTS

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by choosing not to check certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting Connect Sport Ltd directly and asking us to cease contacting you for such purposes.
