What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) & Registration forms

We collect personally identifiable information (“PII”) that is volunteered during the registration process. By becoming a member of Bournemouth Hockey Club, members must fill in the online registration form in order to facilitate the smooth running of the Club and efficient communications regarding teams, matches and events.

In the event that a player is injured, completion of the registration forms provides permission to the Club to arrange any necessary treatment, including calling Emergency Services if required.  Whilst coaches and club personnel will take every precaution, they cannot be held responsible for any loss, damage or injury suffered whilst a Bournemouth Sports Club.

Match Report Forms

For ladies and girls playing in the West Hockey Leagues, names of players are recorded on match report forms which are submitted electronically to the League and held in a secure environment for examination and investigation by League Secretaries as required.

This data is held until the end of the season to which it refers and will then be deleted. By registering as a member of Bournemouth Hockey Club, consent is given to allow this information to be shared with the League, as the business of the League cannot be conducted without it and the club would be in breach of the League rules if it was not supplied.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Who we share your data with

By becoming a member of Bournemouth Hockey Club, members must fill in the online registration form. This information will be shared with the Club’s coaches, team co-ordinators and Welfare Officer as and when required in order to facilitate the smooth running of the Club and efficient communications regarding teams, matches and events.

Should a member choose to provide their ethnicity as part of player registration, the member consents to this information being used to monitor diversity across the sport and could be shared with England Hockey should they request it.

We do not sell your data to any third party.

How long we retain your data

Member registration data is held for the lifetime of your membership. You may request the deletion of your information on cancellation of your membership by contacting bmthhockey@gmail.com.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics to help analyse how visitors use this site. Google Analytics uses cookies to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information in an anonymous form.

  • how long you spend on each bournemouthhc.co.uk page
  • how you got to the site
  • what you click on while you’re visiting the site

Google Analytics sets or updates cookies only to collect data required for the reports. Additionally, Google Analytics uses only first-party cookies. This means that all cookies set by Google Analytics for your domain send data only to the servers for your domain. This effectively makes Google Analytics cookies the personal property of this website domain, and the data cannot be altered or retrieved by any service on another domain.

Description

Expiration

__utma This cookie is typically written to the browser upon the first visit to your site from that web browser. If the cookie has been deleted by the browser operator, and the browser subsequently visits your site, a new __utma cookie is written with a different unique ID. This cookie is used to determine unique visitors to your site and it is updated with each page view. Additionally, this cookie is provided with a unique ID that Google Analytics uses to ensure both the validity and accessibility of the cookie as an extra security measure. 2 years from set/update.
__utmb This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with your site. When a user views a page on your site, the Google Analytics code attempts to update this cookie. If it does not find the cookie, a new one is written and a new session is established. Each time a user visits a different page on your site, this cookie is updated to expire in 30 minutes, thus continuing a single session for as long as user activity continues within 30-minute intervals. This cookie expires when a user pauses on a page on your site for longer than 30 minutes. You can modify the default length of a user session with the _setSessionCookieTimeout()method. 30 minutes from set/update.
__utmz This cookie stores the type of referral used by the visitor to reach your site, whether via a direct method, a referring link, a website search, or a campaign such as an ad or an email link. It is used to calculate search engine traffic, ad campaigns and page navigation within your own site. The cookie is updated with each page view to your site. 6 months from set/update.
__utmv This cookie is not normally present in a default configuration of the tracking code. The __utmv cookie passes the information provided via the _setVar()method, which you use to create a custom user segment. This string is then passed to the Analytics servers in the GIF request URL via the utmcc parameter. This cookie is only written if you have added the _setVar() method for the tracking code on your website page. 2 years from set/update.
__utmx This cookie is used by Website Optimizer and only set when the Website Optimizer tracking code is installed and correctly configured for your pages. When the optimizer script executes, this cookie stores the variation this visitor is assigned to for each experiment, so the visitor has a consistent experience on your site.  See the Website Optimizer Help Center for more information. 2 years from set/update.
