Unless stated otherwise, in the relevant additional privacy terms shown, the ECB is the data controller in respect of all personal data collected on this Website which means that we are responsible for ensuring that we do so in full compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and all other related privacy laws.

This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect about you, how we use it, and the steps we take to ensure that it is kept secure. We also explain your rights and how to contact us.

Links to other websites

Please note, this Website may contains links to other websites that are not controlled by the ECB. These links are provided for your convenience. We are only responsible for the ECB’s privacy practices and the ECB’s security of the ECB Websites. We recommend that you check the privacy and security policies and procedures of each and every other website that you visit.

BY USING THIS WEBSITE AND GIVING PERSONAL INFORMATION TO US OR TO ANY CRICKET ORGANISATIONS THROUGH OTHER ECB WEBSITES, YOU INDICATE THAT YOU CONSENT TO THE ECB, THE CRICKET ORGANISATIONS AND ECB PARTNERS COLLECTING AND USING THIS PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS SET OUT IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY.
CHILDREN

If you are under 16, you will need the permission of your parent or guardian before registering on any ECB Website and we may require your parent or guardian to confirm that they have given permission. We may ask for their contact details so that we can check that they have done so and may carry out checks to confirm that the details you have given us are correct.

We normally only send newsletters and offers and opportunities to those under 16 where their parent or guardian has given consent to them being sent. Parents or guardians of those under 16 can change their mind at any time (see ‘Newsletters, Offers and Opportunities’ below).

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

In order to provide you with the services you require, the ECB will obtain personal information about you (and your parent or guardian if you are under 16) from ECB Websites, telephone conversations, emails and written and verbal communications. These will include, for example, your name, address, email address, phone number and details that are relevant to the service(s) in which you are interested. Occasionally we may ask for date of birth, for example, where the service you require has age related restrictions or ethnicity information to enable us to monitor and ensure compliance with anti-discrimination policies.

We may supplement the information that you provide with other information that we obtain from our dealings with you or which we receive from other organisations, such as Cricketing Organisations and ECB Partners.

Information about other people

If you provide information to us about any person other than yourself, you must ensure that they understand how their information will be used and that you are authorised to disclose it to us, and to consent to its use on their behalf, before doing so.

IP addresses

In order to understand how users use our website and services, we may collect IP addresses.

Cookies

In common with many other website operators, we may use standard technology called 'cookies' on ECB Websites. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive and they are used to record how you navigate this Website on each visit.

Our cookies are used to enable us to develop our websites and to enable you to properly navigate ECB Websites. We use cookies to collect personal information to enable us to reflect our customers interests and by noting who has seen which pages, properties and advertisements (including click through from emails), how frequently particular pages are visited and to enable us to determine the most popular areas of ECB Websites. We may use cookies to enrich your experience of using ECB Websites by allowing us to tailor what you see to what we have learned about your preferences during your visits to ECB Websites. Sometimes we may use services of third parties and they may use cookies on our behalf in order to provide their services.

The particular cookies we use will depend on which ECB Website you are accessing. You can find the cookie information you need by clicking on the link in the table below for the relevant ECB Website

All personal information that we obtain about you and/or any other person whose details you provide will be recorded, used, and protected by us in accordance with current data protection legislation, our Terms and Conditions and this Privacy Policy. We will primarily use the personal information:

  • for registration, membership and general administration (including verification, vetting, security checking, issuing passes and permits as appropriate)
  • to provide the services you request from us

Disclosing your personal information

In order to provide our products and services, we may, occasionally, appoint other organisations to carry out some of the processing activities on our behalf. These may include, for example, technology hosts, printing companies and mailing houses. In these circumstances, we will ensure that personal information is properly protected and that it is only used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We may also pass relevant personal information to County Cricket Boards, Clubs and Leagues for cricket administration and research purposes where we believe this is appropriate to the service you require or to enable them to understand player activity and develop cricket related services.

CRICKET ORGANISATIONS

As the national governing body for cricket, the ECB has relationships with other cricket related organisations such as County Cricket Boards, cricket clubs and cricket leagues (each a Cricket Organisation) and some of the goods and services available on or through ECB Websites are provided by those Cricket Organisations. Each Cricket Organisation has its own privacy practices and you should check that you are satisfied with them before you provide any personal information to them.

  • NatWest the ODI and International T20 sponsor, as well as grassroots sponsor of initiatives such as CricketForce

If we do transfer your personal information to other territories, we will take proper steps to ensure that the information is protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

Privacy laws and practice are constantly developing and we aim to meet high standards. Our policies and procedures are, therefore, under continual review.
