Northamptonshire Sport Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes how and why Northamptonshire Sport obtains, stores and processes data which can identify users. We may update this policy from time to time and shall indicate on the website when changes have been made.

Information Collected

Information is collected from users when they register with us, or when they contribute to or use some of the advanced features of the software. The information we collect is clearly set out on the web page on which we collect it. In addition, we may also collect a user's IP address and use cookies unless they have configured their web browsers not to accept them.

We collect information so that we can personalise our user experience of the software, assist their use of the software and improve the software generally. Depending upon a user's selections for our data protection questions (such as newsletters, notifications and updates) we may arrange for information to be sent about related products and services from us and our partners. Users may update their answers to these questions at any time.

Who is Information Disclosed to?

We will only pass on information about individual users (as opposed to anonymous aggregate information) to our partners to enable us to perform services requested by users or with users' prior consent. Partners include other sport and physical activity organisations such as County Sport Partnerships and National Governing Bodies of Sport.

If users give their consent, we will pass contact details onto our partners who may then occasionally send communications to you to provide information, offers and services that may be of interest to you.

In certain circumstances we may need to disclose information about users if they breach this privacy policy or if they breach the terms of use. We may also disclose or access their account if required to do so by law or by any governmental body.

Web browser cookies

User may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If they do so, note that some parts of the Site may not function properly.

This site contains links to other sites. SportSuite is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these web sites.

Software Security

The SportSuite software has been built as a scalable platform using PHP 5, MySQL and Redis running on Linux (Centos). The site is hosted in London with Rackspace UK using their Cloud Servers product, allowing capacity to be resized depending on demand.

All the data is held in one central database, allowing users to move companies, sports clubs, or counties, whilst retaining their personal data. The software is encrypted with a 256-bit encryption. All logins are protected and passwords are stored in a way that cannot be retrieved (users must generate new ones).

The server will store nightly snapshots of the database for the past 7 days, and then the server is backed up using Rackspace Cloud backup and also nightly rsync to a NAS in the Cuttlefish main office for double redundancy.

The software has been designed as responsive, allowing users to access it from mobile and tablet devices as well as desktop computers.
