Campaigns

Occasionally we ask you to email us with your opinion on a particular subject, and may publish a selection of these comments on our web site. However, if you advise us that you do not wish to have your comment and name published, we will not do so.

Site tracking

In the future, we may use tracking software to monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the site to better meet the needs of visitors. This software does not enable us to capture any personally identifying information.

Security facts

As required by the UK Data Protection Acts of 1984 and 1998, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information that you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we are able to disclose information to you.

Disclosure to third parties

Merseyside Sport does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. Merseyside Sport may provide aggregate statistics about our members, traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.

We never disclose information about a member to any other person or organisation without your consent unless there is an emergency situation that requires it or we are legally required to do so.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and in what circumstances we disclose it.
