If you tell us that you do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact with you, we will respect your wishes.
  • Where you have consented to us sending you information we may also use your data for marketing purposes. This may be information that we think may be of interest to you or information about other organisations’ goods and services that we think may be of interest to you.

If you do not wish to receive marketing and promotional communications from us or our partners, sponsors and affiliates you can choose to opt out when providing your personal information to Blackburn Rovers Community Trust.

We recommend that you view the Privacy Policy posted on each website that you use to confirm that the policies of these third parties are acceptable to you.

We understand that the security of your personal information is important to you.

Blackburn Rovers Community Trust reserves the right to access and disclose personal information to comply with applicable laws and lawful government requests to operate its systems properly or to protect itself or others.

6. Children and young people
The Blackburn Rovers Community Trust website is a general audience website. However, we understand that children may visit ‘’ and as such, we would encourage all potential users under the age of 16 to talk with their parents or legal guardians before submitting any information to this website, or indeed any other website. Ultimately, Blackburn Rovers Community Trust believes that it is the responsibility of parents or legal guardians to supervise children when online and recommends that parental control tools be put in place.

No information collected from anyone under the age of 18 will be used for any marketing or promotional purposes. If, in the future, Blackburn Rovers Community Trust actively collects personal information from children, it will do so in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679.

7. Access to your information
Data protection law gives you various rights including the right to access the personal information that is held about you. In order to do this, please see our ‘Subject Access Request Procedure’ document, as found on the website.

Please note that in certain circumstances Blackburn Rovers Community Trust may withhold access to your information where it has the right to do so under current data protection legislation. You can also request at any time that the personal information we hold about you is updated, corrected or erased.

8. Changes to this Privacy Policy
We may need to change the terms of this Policy from time to time and changes will be posted on this page. Your continued use of the website will be deemed to be acceptance of amendments we make.

Any changes will take effect once the revised Privacy Policy is published on our website. We will, of course, notify you of any changes where we are required to do so. Please refer to this Privacy Policy each time you submit any personal information.

This policy will be reviewed in May 2019 or earlier if there are changes to the relevant course of business.
