Sports Partners is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy and security online. Sports Partners recognises privacy and security as being a concern for most individuals accessing the Internet. Whether you're paying for a service or product, or just browsing our site, we want to make you comfortable with our privacy practices and the security measures we take to protect your personal information. While we've structured our web sites so that, in general, you can visit Sports Partners on the Web without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information, you may be required to provide personal information to access certain secured and detailed information and materials.
This privacy statement outlines our personal information handling practices. Once you choose to provide us personally identifiable information (any information by which you can be identified), you can be assured that it will only be used to support your customer relationship with Sports Partners.
Finally, by using our web site, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information by Sports Partners as set forth in the privacy statement currently in effect.

What Personal Information Do We Collect? On some Sports Partners web sites or pages, you may be able to order products or services, enter competitions, make requests for information and register to receive materials. When an order is placed with us, Sports Partners may collect personally identifiable information, including name, title, company, address, e-mail address, phone numbers, transaction, and credit card information. We do not require this information to obtain access to any part of our public site, but do require it if you wish to place an order.
In order to tailor our subsequent communications to you and continuously improve our products and services (including registration), we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your professional interests, experience with our services, and more detailed contact preferences.
In addition, our web server storage logs can collect the domain names of visitors to our Web sites.

Who is Collecting the Personal Information? When you are on a Sports Partners site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Sports Partners. Additionally, if you purchase products and/or services from Sports Partners, your personal information may be collected by a third party company working with Sports Partners. Sports Partners may also contract with third party companies to perform services for Sports Partners on its Web site that require these companies to collect personal information (e.g. hosting a Web site promotion or survey).
How Do We Use the Information We Get? Sports Partners may use your information to better understand your needs to provide you with personalized and customized service. With respect to transactions, Sports Partners' goal in collecting personal information is to facilitate order processing and to enable us to contact you if a problem arises with your order or inquiry. Providing such information when making a purchase is required. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, to communicate back to you, to update you on service and benefits, and to personalize our web sites for you, which includes interactive communications, and other services.
The Sports Partners site may also contain optional surveys and questionnaires asking for information, as well as several opportunities for visitors to ask questions. We use the information you provide to help us design and build better products, to customize your shopping experience, and to provide advice and purchase recommendations.
We may also use your information to contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest. Taking part in any of these segments is always optional. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or market research contact. For example, if you want to be removed from a mailing list, please contact us at contact@Sports Partners.co.uk. We will also follow local requirements, such as allowing you to opt in before receiving unsolicited contact, where applicable.
Who Can We Share the Personal Information With? Except as outlined in this policy or on our Web site, Sports Partners will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others without your consent. Thus, unless we have your permission or are required by law, we will only share the personal data you provide online with other Sports Partners entities and/or business partners who are acting on our behalf for the uses described in " How Do We Use the Information We Get". For example, Sports Partners may share aggregated user statistics with our current or prospective business partners, advertisers, and other third parties, which can include our users' demographics, interests, and behaviour based on the information provided to us when you are making a purchase, requesting information, or simply browsing.

Sports Partners may also disclose personal information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating this site's Terms or may be violating Sports Partners' or other's rights or causing injury to or interference with Sports Partners' or other's property. Sports Partners' may also disclose or access personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

As previously stated in "Who Can We Share the Personal Information With?", we will also provide you the opportunity to let us know if you do not wish to receive unsolicited direct marketing materials from us and we will do everything we can to honour such requests. For example, Sports Partners or its business partners may, from time to time, send you e-mail or direct mail regarding our products and services. If you do not want to receive such information, simply tell us when you give us your personal information, or follow the directions contained on it to remove your name from our mailing list.

If you ever have questions regarding an e-mail you receive from Sports Partners or one our business partners, or want to be removed from a mailing list, please contact Sports Partners Headquarters.
What Security Measures are Used by Sports Partners? We protect the personal information you share with us. For example, if you make an online purchase with us through use of a credit card, we encrypt your credit card number. As a result, access to your personal information is limited to people who need it to do their job.
Authorized third party agents may also need access to some of your personal information. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company. We only provide third party agents with the minimum amount of information needed to complete the requested service or transaction. We do not otherwise share your personal information with third parties, unless you have granted us permission to do so.
However, it should be understood that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Sports Partners cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our Web site, and therefore you use our site at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
