We use your information lawfully. We do not sell your information to third parties. However, we may share your information as set out in the section ‘When we share your information’. The details of how we use your information and the legal bases for our use are set out below: 

We will sometimes use your information on the basis of our ‘legitimate business interests’ (our “legitimate interests”). This means, for example, our legitimate interests in conducting and managing our business and our relationship with you. Where we use your information for our legitimate interests, we make sure that we take into account any potential impact that such use may have on you. Our legitimate interests do not automatically override yours and we will not use your information if we believe your interests should override ours unless we have other grounds to do so (such as your consent or a legal obligation). If you have any concerns about our processing you have rights and choices which include the right to object or rectify (please see the section headed ‘Your rights and choices’). We may use your information for the purposes listed below on the basis of our legitimate interests: 

  • to respond to an email that you have sent to us directly
  • to operate a safe and lawful business or where we have a legal obligation
  • to enable us to comply with our policies and procedures and enforce our legal rights, or to protect the rights, property or safety of our employees
  • to personalise, enhance, modify or otherwise improve the services and/or communications that we provide to you
  • to detect and prevent fraud and unauthorised access or illegal activity
  • to improve security and optimization of our network sites and services including trouble shooting, testing and software development and support.


Your information may be processed by our staff or by the staff of third parties we work with to deliver our business. Processing can mean any activity that involves the use of information about someone that can identify them. All uses, for example, obtaining, recording, storing, disclosing, organising, retrieving, deleting and destroying are types of data processing. We take measures to ensure that third parties processing your information on our behalf are acting lawfully in accordance with our instructions and are subject to appropriate confidentiality requirements. We also have adequate technical and organizational safeguards in place in our company and with third party processors to protect your information. Third party processors of your information include

We share your information within the companies that make up the SPORTFIVE group of companies as well as with our parent company and their parent company. Where we share your information outside our group of companies you will be asked to consent to a third party sharing your information and if you choose to give your permission any interaction you have with a third party is governed by their privacy terms. The third party becomes a joint data controller of your information with us. This means that the third party can make decisions about how to use your information. Before we share your information we require third parties to enter into a data sharing agreement which stipulates that they must maintain appropriate security to protect your information from unauthorised access, processing or use. We will share your information with the following third parties: 

  • any prospective seller or buyer of businesses or assets, only in the event that we decide to acquire, transfer or sell any business or assets
  • any other third parties (including legal or other advisors, regulatory authorities, courts and government agencies) where necessary to enable us to enforce our legal rights, or to protect the rights, property or safety of our employees or where such disclosure may be permitted or required by law or where we have a legal obligation to do so.
