Some data is shared with the FA and The Leagues, who use your data to regulate, develop and manage the game.

Amongst the data we collect from you may be medical (including injury) information. We will hold this where you (or your parent if under 13) have given consent, so that we can ensure we are aware of your condition and can that you are supported appropriately.
Where you work in a particular role within the game, you may be required to undergo a Disclosure & Barring Service check using the DBS system. The result of this check will be held by the club in paper form.
What does this policy cover?
This policy describes how Walton Warriors Football Club (also referred to as “the Club”, “we” or “us”) will make use of the data we handle in relation to our members and players, including our use of the FA Whole Game.
It also describes your data protection rights, including a right to object to some of the processing which we carry out. More information about your rights, and how to exercise them, is set out in the “What rights do I have?” section.
What information do we collect?
We collect and process personal data from you or your parent when you join and when we carry out annual renewals of your membership. This includes:
- your name

Some information will be generated as part of your involvement with us, in particular data about your performance, involvement in particular matches in match reports and details of any disciplinary issues or incidents you may be involved in on and off the pitch, such as within health and safety records.
What information do we receive from third parties?
Sometimes, we receive information about you from third parties. For example, if you are a child, we may be given information about you by your parents.
We may receive information relating to your existing registrations with other clubs or football bodies. Additionally, for certain role holders or those working with children, we may receive information from the Disclosure and Barring Service on the status of any DBS check you have been required to take.
How do we use this information, and what is the legal basis for this use?
We process this personal data for the following purposes:
To fulfil a contract, or take steps linked to a contract: this is relevant where you make a payment for your membership and any merchandise or enter a competition. This includes:
- taking payments;
- communicating with you;
- providing and arranging the delivery or other provision of products, prizes or services;
As required by the Club to conduct our business and pursue our legitimate interests, in particular:
- we will use your information to manage and administer your membership and your involvement with its teams and club, and to keep in contact with you for these purposes;
- we will also use data to maintain records of our performances and history, including match reports, score lines and team sheets;
- we may choose to send you promotional materials and offers by email where we want to send you offers relating to similar products and services that you have already bought
Where you give us consent:
- we will send you direct marketing or promotional material by email;
- we may handle medical or disability information you or your parent provides to us, to ensure we support you appropriately;
- on other occasions where we ask you for consent, we will use the data for the purpose which we explain at that time.
For purposes which are required by law:
- we maintain records such as health and safety records and accounting records in order to meet specific legal requirements;
- we ensure, where you will work with children, that you have undergone an appropriate DBS check – this is also carried out with your consent.
- where you hold a role at the Club requiring us to check your right to work, we may process information to meet our statutory duties;
- we may respond to requests by government or law enforcement authorities conducting an investigation.
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 your 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 rely on our legitimate interests. You have an absolute right to opt-out of direct marketing, or profiling we carry out for direct marketing, at any time.
Who will we share this data with, where and when?
In addition to sharing data with the FA and Leagues, we will share you data with other clubs if you (or your child) is playing in a match or tournament when fixtures are taking place.
Some limited information may be shared with other stakeholders in football, such as other clubs, Constituent Bodies, referee societies, league organisers, so that they can maintain appropriate records and assist us in organising matches and administering the game.
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 or the FA/Leagues’ legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws.
Personal data will also be shared with third party service providers, who will process it on our behalf for the purposes identified above.
The only occasion when data will be transferred outside of the EEA, will pertain to other clubs if you (or your child) is playing in a match or tournament when fixtures are taking place. You will be informed of any type of data transfer prior to it taking place. Where information is transferred outside the EEA, and where this is to a stakeholder or vendor in a country that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission, data is adequately protected by EU Commission approved standard contractual clauses, an appropriate Privacy Shield certification or a vendor’s Processor Binding Corporate Rules. A copy of the relevant mechanism can be provided for your review on request.
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 other 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, or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping.
To exercise any of these rights, you can get in touch with us – or, as appropriate, the FA or League’s data protection officer – using the details set out below. If you have unresolved concerns, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office.
Much of the information listed above must be provided on a mandatory basis so that we can make the appropriate legal checks and register you as required by FA Rules and Regulations. We will inform you which information is mandatory when it is collected. Some information is optional, particularly information such as your medical information. If this is not provided, we may not be able to provide you with appropriate assistance, services or support.

How long will you retain my data?
We process the majority of your data for as long as you are an active member and for five years after this.
Where we process personal data for marketing purposes or with your consent, we process the data for that season unless you ask us to stop, when we will only process the data for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests). We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your data indefinitely so that we can respect your request in future.
Where we process personal data in connection with performing a contract or for a competition, we keep the data for 6 years from your last interaction with us.
We will retain information held to maintain statutory records in line with appropriate statutory requirements or guidance.
