Sussex Cricket shall process all personal information in accordance with data protection legislation and regulations relating to the processing of personal data and privacy, including but not limited to the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679).

Sussex Cricket is responsible as ‘controller’ of personal information for the purposes of those laws.

What personal information do we collect about you?

In order to provide you with our services and products and for other lawful reasons related to membership, club administration and the legitimate interests of Sussex Cricket and the Sussex Cricket Foundation, we may collect personal information about you from our website, telephone conversations, emails, and written and oral communications. We may, for example, keep a record of your name, address, email address, telephone number and date of birth. We may also record details of any disability or health related requirements you may have at the time of making a booking for an event or service, for example, to help ensure your safety.

In addition to the information you knowingly provide, Sussex Cricket collects the domain names and IP addresses of its visitors to the website www.sussexcricket.co.uk, along with usage statistics (for example, types of web browsers and operating systems used) and browsing history. This data is used to promote our services. Sussex Cricket may combine this information with the personally identifiable and other information it collects.

How will we use your personal information?

We will primarily use your personal information to provide our services and products to you.

We may also use your personal information for one or more of the following purposes:

  1. to process requests and purchases and manage your interactions with us;
  2. to communicate with you about services or products you have requested from us: for example, in the event that the service or product you have requested is unavailable; or if there is a query or problem with your requests; or when (in accordance with your preferences) we keep in touch with you about similar services or products;
  3. for Sussex Cricket Members: administration of your membership (or application for membership), including providing Member benefits and keeping in touch;
  4. for Sussex Cricket ticket purchasers: administration of your ticket purchase (or application for tickets), including providing match day information and keeping in touch;
  5. for record-keeping purposes (for example, for membership archives);
  6. to recover debt and to help us to prevent fraud;
  7. to fulfil our legal obligations (for example, where we are required to keep records of transactions or share information with authorities);
  8. to improve the quality of our services;

We may also use aggregate information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring website usage in order to help us to develop our website and our services. We may also provide such aggregate information to third parties, but these statistics will not include information that can be used to identify you.

Disclosure of your personal information

Subject to your preferences (which may be altered at any time by contacting Sussex Cricket), your personal information may be shared with carefully selected partners, sponsors and licensees whose services and/or products we think may be of interest to you. Your preferences may be in the form of a consent given during the registration process or by other means, or a request for more information about an offer from one of our partners or sponsors.

Those third parties may then contact you directly to tell about their services and/or products, having checked with us where necessary to ensure you are a Member or supporter (if applicable), or we may contact you on their behalf. A list of our current partners and sponsors can be requested by contacting Sussex Cricket.

In addition, in order to provide our services and products, we may, occasionally, appoint other organisations to carry out some of the processing activities on our behalf. These may include, for example, technology hosts, printing companies and mailing houses. In these circumstances, we will ensure that personal information is properly protected and that it is only used in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

In limited circumstances, we may disclose your personal information to third parties if we are under a legal obligation to do so, or because it is necessary to share with a governing body for the administration or governance of the sport of cricket.

What if you do not want to receive marketing information?

We consider it is in Sussex Cricket's legitimate interest to keep you informed about what we and our partners offer. If you would rather not receive marketing information from us or any other third party to whom we may disclose your personal information, please contact us (see the section “How to contact Sussex Cricket” below).

If you agree to us providing you with marketing information or Sussex Cricket news, you can always opt out at a later date or narrow your preferences. You are in control of what you receive. However, please note that where you withhold or withdraw your consent to be contacted in this way, we may be unable to keep you informed of new services, products, events and/or special offers that may interest you.

How long will you retain my data

We process data for as long as you are an active user and for 6 years after this. We will also, where you have consented to marketing, continue to sending you marketing whilst you are an active user. An active user is a supporter that has opened an email from us or bought something from us within the last 3 seasons. We will also remove you from our marketing lists where you have not engaged in the previous 3 seasons.

If you choose to opt out of marketing, we will remove you from our lists but keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your data indefinitely so that we can respect your request in future.

Where we process personal data in connection with performing a contract or for a competition, we keep the data for 6 years from your last interaction with us. 

We keep information relating to our suppliers and partners for at least 6 years following the contract, although we may hold it longer where required by law, such as for accounting purposes.

Where we process CCTV footage, we hold this for a month.

Where we process personal data to meet legal requirements, we hold this for as long as the law requires – for example, we hold health and safety accident records for 7 years.
