We protect user privacy through the appropriate use of the security technology. This means that we respect your privacy.
You should receive marketing emails only from Talking Rugby Union and, if you choose, from carefully chosen third parties. We may email you occasionally with information or queries about your registration, postings, and with reminders, warnings or copyright issues.
We collect and use individual visitor details only where we have legitimate business reasons and are legally entitled to do so.
We will be transparent in our dealings with you as to what information about you we will collect and how we will use your information.
We will use personal data only for the purpose(s) for which they were originally collected and we will ensure personal data are securely disposed of.
What information do we collect?
We collect information on our users through registration and use of the website, through cookies, where you choose to disclose data in postings, and when you enter sales promotions and competitions ("sales promotions").
Certain services that we provide may involve the collection by us of additional information, such as your geographic location from time to time, to enable the service to be provided as designed. In particular, this may apply to certain Apps that you download, or which we provide.
The minimum information we need to register a user is an email address and a password. We will ask further questions for different services, including sales promotions. Unless stated, all registration questions are compulsory.
We may also ask some further, voluntary questions during registration for certain services (for example, Professional Networks) so we can gain a clearer understanding of our users. This also enables us to personalise services for our users.
Following registration you may be sent regular editorial emails from Talking Rugby Union. You will be able to unsubscribe from these at any time.
Who we share data with
We will not share your personal information with others for marketing purposes unless you have given us your permission. With your permission we will share your information only with carefully chosen third parties.
Please note that we reserve the right to access and disclose personal data to comply with applicable laws and lawful government requests, to operate our systems properly and to protect both ourselves and our users.
Any third parties who access your data in the course of providing services on our behalf are subject to strict contractual restrictions to ensure that your data is protected, and in compliance with applicable data protection/privacy legislation. We may also independently audit these service providers to ensure that they meet our standards. We may use service providers to help us run these site or services available on the sites, some of whom may be based outside the EEA.
