If the new purpose is not compatible with the original purpose, we will ask for your specific consent for the new purpose. If the law changes so that we must process your data for a new purpose, we will inform you before making the change.

At the point when we collect your personal data, we will always remind you of why we need it and how we plan to use it.

  1. Automated decision-making and profiling

We do not conduct any automated decision-making such as profiling. If this changes, we will update this privacy notice and update you accordingly.

  1. Sharing your information with third parties

We may share your personal information with third parties as part of our service to you. The list below shows who we may share information with and the situations where we might do so.

  • Service providers: In order to provide our services effectively we may need to appoint data processors to carry out some of the data processing on our behalf. These include, for example, Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, who provide us with our IT service, and other software suppliers. We have agreements in place with our data processors which means they cannot do anything with your personal information unless we instruct them to do so.
  • Funding partners: We may share your personal data with the organisations we work in partnership to deliver our community activities. These include schools, local authorities and charities who are all also registered data controllers. We have agreements in place with them to acknowledge that we are both responsible for preserving your privacy and processing your data in accordance with the law. The data may or may not be shared anonymously, but we will let you know which is the case when you register.
  • Publicity and Media: From time to time we may wish to publicise the work we are doing through publications or the media, including social media. We may ask you to be a part of this but we will only disclose your personal information, such as your photograph, with your explicit consent, or that of your guardian if you are under 16.
  • Tottenham Hotspur Football Club: If you give your explicit consent, we will pass on your contact details to the Club so that they can inform you about their latest news, competitions, ticket and merchandise updates and offers. When you set up a user account with the Club you will have the opportunity to express your preferences for the way your data is used.
  • Legal and other obligations: We may also share your personal data with third parties in the following circumstances:
    • If we are under a legal or regulatory requirement to do so
    • To lawfully assist the police or security services with the prevention and detection of crime or terrorist activity
    • Where disclosure is necessary to protect the safety or security of any persons
  1. International Data Transfers

We do not currently transfer your personal information outside of the European Economic Area. If this changes in the future, we will update this Privacy Policy and put in place measures to ensure your information is given the appropriate level of protection.

  1. Keeping your information

We retain your personal information for the minimum reasonable time period to allow us to fulfil the purposes that we collected it for. Our retention schedule is as follows:

  • If you are a participant on a course, we will keep your personal data for the length of the programme you have signed up for and a limited period afterwards to allow follow-up. The follow-up period varies from course to course and we will let you know what it is when you sign up for the course.
  • If you apply for a job and are successful, personal data gathered during the recruitment process will be transferred to your personnel file and retained during your employment and for 7 years afterwards as required by law.
  • If you apply for a job and are unsuccessful, we will retain your personal details for a period of 6 months after your application. If you give us your explicit consent, we may hold your data on file for a further 6 months for consideration for future employment opportunities.
  • If you apply to be a volunteer and are successful, we will retain your personal data for as long as you remain a volunteer with us and for 6 months afterwards to enable us to deal with any queries that may arise. If you give us your explicit consent, we may hold your data on file for a further 6 months for consideration for future volunteering opportunities.
  • If you apply to be a volunteer and are unsuccessful, we will retain your personal data for 6 months after your application. If you give us your explicit consent, we may hold your data on file for a further 6 months for consideration for future volunteering opportunities.

At the end of the retention period we will delete or destroy your personal information except where we need to keep it to comply with our legal obligations, resolve ongoing disputes or defend ourselves against future legal claims, or enforce our agreements.

We may continue to use data without further notice to you to help us ensure the fairness of our services and activities. If we do this, we will anonymise the data first so that you cannot be identified as being associated with it.
