  Lichfield Lions takes the confidentiality of personal data seriously. Our Privacy Policy sets out how we will process any personal data that you provide to us as a result of using this website. The information is written for the benefit of general visitors to the website - if you are one of our team (or become one) we process a wider range of personal data and deal with a broader range of privacy-related issues. Players and their parents are provided detailed information about this during the engagement process.

Personal Data You Provide

Your privacy is important to us. By providing personal information such as your name and e-mail address via the forms on this website, you agree to us contacting you with regard to the information provided.

Some forms on our website also include a check box asking you for permission to add you to our mailing list. This is an opt-in mailing list and your personal information will be used solely by us (and all such emails include a link for opt-out).

Visitors to our Website 

We collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We collect this information in a way which does not personally identify any visitors to our site. Personal information such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address or other information is only collected when it is voluntarily submitted to us via e-mail or an online form submission. In this case the information you have sent or submitted is only accessed by the member of Lichfield Lions to send you the information you have requested and to provide information that may be useful to you.

Your personal information will not be made available to any third parties.

Information we monitor about visitors

During the course of any visit to our site, the pages you see, along with a short text file called a 'cookie', are downloaded to your computer. Many websites do this, because cookies facilitate useful features such as the ability to identify whether a user has successfully logged into the site or to find out whether the computer (and probably its user) has visited the website before.

How We Use Your Personal Data

We use the data you provide via this website to:

  • communicate with you, for      example: we use contact details such as email address or phone number when      responding to enquiries made via online forms
  • operate our business more effectively, for      example: we seek feedback and use this to help improve our service

Our "Lawful Reasons" For Processing Your Personal Data

The "General Data Protection Regulation" (GDPR) is the primary piece of legislation defining your rights over our processing of your personal information. The GDPR requires us to declare which of six "lawful reasons" we are relying on when we are processing your personal data: we operate on the basis of "consent" when sending newsletters or email communication (you won't get sent a newsletter or email unless you have explicitly opted in to receive one).... and we operate on the basis of "legitimate interest" when communicating with you in other ways (e.g. when responding to your enquiry).

How Long We Keep Personal Data

Personal data may be stored for a period of up to 90 days after which time it is removed automatically unless you give your permission otherwise.
