  • where you have provided your consent to allow us to use your data in a certain way
  • where the processing is necessary to carry out for the performance of a contract with you
  • where the processing is necessary in order for us to comply with a legal obligation; or
  • where it is in our legitimate interests to perform our functions, for example, sending you administrative communications where our legitimate interest is to raise funds and to deliver services to you.


What personal information we collect about you

We may collect personal information about you. We do not usually collect sensitive personal information about our supporters unless there is a clear reason for doing so.

We may collect personal information about you when you:

  • register with us for information

  • purchase match/season tickets
  • sign up for publications or newsletters
  • volunteer for us
  • make a donation
  • purchase an item from the online shop
  • telephone, write, contact us online or text us or otherwise provide us with your personal information.

This can include information such as your name, communication preferences, email address, postal address, IP address, telephone number, mobile number, date of birth or bank account details so we can process donations. In some cases we may also collect information about you from publicly available sources.

We do not collect sensitive personal information about our you unless there is a clear reason for doing so and only where appropriate.

We will only collect personal data with your consent, and clear notices will be provided on relevant forms and communications, so you know what information we need and why we need it.


Telling us when things change

If you tell us that you no longer want to receive further contact from us and you are on our supporter database, it may take a short while before our communications stop altogether as selection of supporter information for some of our communications is done a few weeks in advance of mailing. If you request to receive no further contact from us, we will keep the information we hold on you and add you to our suppression lists to ensure that you do not receive unwanted materials in the future.
