Privacy Policy

Sportsnewsfirst is committed to respecting our user's privacy and security. However, we do collect and use various bits of information about you through your use of the site, to enhance your enjoyment of the

Sportsnewsfirst service:
Personal Data - (names and addresses etc) through which it is possible to identify you. You will always know when this data is being collected and it will only be used for the specific purposes to which you have consented.

Aggregated Statistical Data - all other non-personal information that relates purely to generic statistics such as traffic flow and demographics. It is not possible to identify you through this data.

Personal Data
Sportsnewsfirst will only collect, use and transfer your Personal Data if you have consented to that collection, use and transfer, except in circumstances where it is necessary to conform to legal requirements; protect and defend our rights or property; or to protect the interests of other users.

This data is collected through Registration Forms. On submitting the Registration Forms you give your consent to Sportsnewsfirst:

*collecting the information that is on the Registration Form, and information about your movements around and use of the site and other Sportsnewsfirst owned or managed sites;

*using that information to contact you with relevant material, for example about your use or potential use of the site and other Sportsnewsfirst owned or managed sites.

*transferring that information to other Sportsnewsfirst companies (subsidiaries or affiliates), and to those Sportsnewsfirst companies contacting you with other relevant material, for example about your use or potential use of other Sportsnewsfirst owned or managed sites.

*transferring the information to Sportsnewsfirst's site partner if the site is one which Sportsnewsfirst publishes and manages for a third party partner (e.g. a club or organisation), and to that partner contacting you with other relevant material.

By checking other boxes on the Registration Form, or giving your specific consent at other times, you can additionally choose to have your Personal Data passed on to specially selected Third Parties that Sportsnewsfirst believes will be able to supply you with useful information, and for those Third Parties to contact you with relevant marketing material.

You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting Sportsnewsfirst via the Feedback Contact Form

On occasion we may collect Personal Data in other ways e.g. through competition entry forms or other occasional services. Unless you have consented otherwise by having already submitted a Sportsnewsfirst Registration Form, we will only use that data to contact you about that particular service, unless we indicate otherwise.

Aggregated Data
Other non-personal information will be collected and used by Sportsnewsfirst and may be transferred to third parties. Any such statistical or demographic information will not include personal details through which you could be identified. In addition to non-personal information given on your Registration Form, information is automatically collected about traffic around the site. This is also only used in aggregate form and no individual user will be identified.
