The RFU Injured Players Foundation is committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring a secure online experience. In general, you can view this site and all the latest news without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Sometimes, however, the RFU Injured Players Foundation needs to monitor website usage to help it to develop the website and our services.
Collection of Personal Information
The RFU Injured Players Foundation offers certain functions and services which, if you choose to use them, will require information from you in order to work, such as your name, email, address and mobile telephone number. The RFU Injured Players Foundation will endeavour to let you know before your personal information is collected from you on the internet.
Use of Personal Information
We use personal information for four primary purposes:
- To perform the services you have requested (such as administering your subscription to a free online service or to register you for a fundraising event)
- To help you find what you're looking for quickly
- To help us create and deliver content most relevant to you
- To alert you to new events or other news about the charity and other info, unless you have indicated otherwise
The RFU Injured Players Foundation is very much aware that some people will not want their information used other than for the purposes for which it was supplied; some will want to receive information from the RFU Injured Players Foundation about fundraising only and others will want to receive more information.
The RFU Injured Players Foundation will use your personal data for the administration of the charity, but will give you the choice as to what information if any you wish to receive by email.
The information the RFU Injured Players Foundation will contact you about has been split in to broad categories covering, but not limited to, the types of communications you will receive, namely:
- Fundraising events and initiatives organised by, in benefit of, or supported by the charity
- General updates on the charity’s work and programmes
The RFU Injured Players Foundation has decided that for both categories you should be able to ‘Opt Out’ of receiving the information.
The RFU Injured Players Foundation will not use (or pass to any third party) contact data on children under the age of 14 for any commercial mailing purposes.
Processing Your Data
If you choose to give us personal information to process an order or provide you with a subscription to a free service or to receive communications about the charity then this will be held and processed by the RFU Injured Players Foundation in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. The RFU Injured Players Foundation may also need to transfer your personal information to its agents or sub-contractors who will process it on the RFU Injured Players Foundation’s behalf.
Providing you with Information
The RFU Injured Players Foundation may use your personal information to supply you with information about the RFU Injured Players Foundation and/or its related organisations, and new (unless you have indicated otherwise) services offered to the game, as well as their respective activities and ranges of goods, services and opportunities (and otherwise where you have given your consent).
The RFU Injured Players Foundation may also use your personal information for general statistical purposes. We also keep track of the domains from which users visit and analyse this data:
- For trends and statistics and to evaluate the efficiency of our website and our internet infrastructure
- To ensure that services offered (such as, but not limited to, chat and forums) are not abused
We may also use your information for detection of fraud and market research purposes.
