 Withdrawing consent or otherwise objecting to direct marketing.

Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent, although we may have other legal grounds for processing data for other purposes, such as those set out above. In some cases, we are able to send you direct marketing without your consent, where we relay on our legitimate interests. You have an absolute right to opt out of direct marketing at any time. You can do this by following the instructions in the communication where this is an electronic message, or by contacting the club directly.

We will also share data with third parties holding events at our Tameside Stadium as necessary to ensure your attendance is appropriately managed.

Personal data may be shared with government authorities and/or law enforcement officials if required for the purposes above, if mandated by law or if required for the legal protection of our legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws.

 What rights do I have?

 You have the right to ask us for a copy of your personal data; to correct, delete or restrict (stop any active) processing of your personal data; and to obtain the personal data you provide to us for a contract or with your consent in a structured, machine-readable format. 

In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the data to meet a contractual or legal requirement, or where we are using the data for direct marketing). 

These rights may be limited, for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, where it would infringe the rights of a third party (including our rights) or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping.  Relevant exemptions are included in both the GDPR and in the Data Protection Act 2018. We will inform you of relevant exemptions we rely upon when responding to any request you make.

Data that is mandatory is indicated on relevant forms that you complete, where a provision of data is mandatory if relevant data is not provided, then we will not be able to fulfil your requests to register, or otherwise engage with the club. All other provision of your information is optional. 

 We hold information relating to visitors to our venue for a month.
