Collection of Information
We provide an e-newsletter service and subscription service for members of this website. When you subscribe to the e-newsletter service we record the following data: Name, gender, address, email address, date of birth, your involvement in athletics and your athletics club.
When you buy a ticket to any of the Televised Athletics event, our ticket agent will ask you for personal details such as your name, email address, age, the region in which you live. This information is then used to:
- Notify you of any major changes to the event
- Notify you of other UK Athletics Televised Events
We will not share your data with any third parties unless you choose to opt-in via the question asked by our ticket agents on the phone or web.
