Middlesex Rugby Privacy Policy

This statement discloses the privacy policy for www.middlesexrugby.com the official website of the Middlesex Rugby (the operating name for Middlesex County Rugby Football Union Limited) and subsidiary sites including www.friends.middlesexrugby.com, www.coaching.middlesexrugby.com and www.middlesex7s.com

Middlesex Rugby is committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring a secure online experience. In general, you can view this site and all the latest news and results without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Sometimes however, Middlesex Rugby needs to monitor website usage to help it to develop the web site and our services.

Collection of Personal Information

Middlesex Rugby offers certain functions and services which, if you choose to use them, will require information from you in order to work, such as your name, email, address and mobile telephone number. Middlesex Rugby will endeavour to let you know before your personal information is collected from you on the Internet.

Use of Personal Information

We use personal information for five primary purposes:

  • To perform the services you have requested
  • To make the site easier for you to use by not making you enter your personal information more than once
  • To help you find what you’re looking for quickly
  •  To help us create and deliver content most relevant to you
  • To alert you to new services, special offers, and other info, unless you have indicated otherwise

Middlesex Rugby is very much aware that some people will not want their information used other than for the purposes for which it was supplied; some will want to receive information from Middlesex Rugby on rugby issues only and others will want to receive more information.

Middlesex Rugby will use your personal data for the administration of the game, but will give you the choice as to what information if any you wish to receive by e-mail.

In connection with commercial information, the categories have been divided into three groups, namely:

  • Products and  commercial services available from Middlesex Rugby, its companies and subsidiaries – these include Tacklebag, the official supplier of Middlesex Rugby Merchandise
  • Products and services available from Middlesex Rugby official sponsors – these sponsors will be listed on the Middlesex Rugby website and in Middlesex Matters and Middlesex Online
  • Products and services available from Middlesex Rugby official sponsors’ subsidiary or associate companies – Middlesex Rugby will not be able to list these entities

Middlesex Rugby has decided that for the first two categories you should be able to ‘Opt Out’ of receiving the information, but that for the third category you will only receive it if you ‘Opt In’.

Middlesex Rugby will not use (or pass to any third party) contact data on children under the age of 14 for any commercial mailing purposes.

Processing Your Data

If you choose to give us personal information to process an order or provide you with a subscription to a free service then this will be held and processed by Middlesex Rugby in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Middlesex Rugby may also need to transfer your personal information to its agents or sub-contractors who will process it on behalf of Middlesex Rugby behalf.

Providing you with information

Middlesex Rugby may use your personal information to supply you with information about Middlesex Rugby and/or its related organisations, and new (unless you have indicated otherwise) services offered to the game, as well as their respective activities and ranges of goods, services and opportunities (and otherwise where you have given your consent).

Middlesex Rugby may also use your personal information for general statistical purposes. We also keep track of the domains from which users visit and analyse this data:

  • For trends and statistics and to evaluate the efficiency of our web site and our internet infrastructure
  • To ensure that services offered (such as, but not limited to, chat and forums) are not abused

We may also use your information for detection of fraud and market research purposes.
