sell your data, and we allow you to review and change your marketing choices at any time.

Policy Statement


We hold personal data about our employees, clients, suppliers and other individuals for a variety of business purposes.
This policy sets out how we seek to protect that data and ensure that staff understand the rules governing their use of
personal data to which they have access during the course of their work.
This policy requires staff to ensure that the Data Protection Officer (DPO) be consulted before any new or significant
changes to data processing activity is initiated. This could be internally driven I.E. operational changes or externally

Sensitive Personal Data (EURO PRO FOOTBALL Staff primarily only) In most cases where we process sensitive personal
data we will require the data subject’s explicit consent to do this unless exceptional circumstances apply or we are
required to do this by law (e.g. to comply with legal obligations to ensure health and safety at work). Any such consent
will need to clearly identify what the relevant data is, why it is being processed and to whom it will be disclosed.
Personal data: We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that personal data we hold is accurate and updated as


Accuracy and Relevance


We will ensure that any personal data we process is accurate, adequate, relevant and not excessive, given the purpose
for which it was obtained. We will not process personal data obtained for one purpose for any unconnected purpose
unless the individual concerned has agreed to this or would otherwise reasonably expect this.
Individuals may ask that we correct inaccurate personal data relating to them. If they believe that information is
inaccurate, we will record the fact that the accuracy of the information is disputed and inform the DPO.


Data Security & Storage


All applicable staff must keep personal data secure against loss or misuse. Where other organisations process personal
data as a service on our behalf, the DPO will establish what, if any, additional specific data security arrangements need
to be implemented in contracts with those third-party organisations.


Storing Data Securely


In cases when data is stored on printed paper, it should be kept in a secure place where unauthorised personnel cannot
access it.
Printed data is to be securely shredded when it is no longer needed.
Data stored on a computer should be protected by strong passwords that are force changed regularly.
Data stored on CDs or memory sticks must be locked away securely when they are not being used.
The DPO must approve any cloud used to store data.
Servers containing personal data are kept in a secure location, away from general office space.
Data is regularly backed up in line with the company’s existing backup procedures.

All servers containing sensitive data are protected by security software and a strong firewall.


Data Retention


We must retain personal data for no longer than is necessary. What is necessary will depend on the circumstances of
each case, taking into account the reasons that the personal data was obtained, but should be determined in a manner
consistent with our data retention guidelines.


Subject Access Requests & Individuals Rights


Individuals are entitled by law, subject to certain exceptions or restrictions, to request access to information held about
them. If we do receive a subject access request, it will be referred immediately to the DPO. Response will be issued on

month from the initial request.
Staff should contact the DPO if they would like to correct or request information that we hold about you.

personal data for direct marketing purposes and notify the DPO about any such request.
We do not send direct marketing material to someone electronically (IE via email) unless they are deemed to have a
genuine interest i.e., we have an existing enquiry or business relationship with them, in relation to the products or
services being marketed.
The DPO should be consulted for advice on direct marketing before starting any new direct marketing activity.
Escalating to the CEO, where appropriate.
