How will we use the information about you?

With respect to your registered Club Website Account, we collect information about you, from you, only to manage your website account and, if you agree, to send you emails concerning Club events, team selections, news and communication related to the Club.
We do not pass on your personal information to our partner associations and leagues without your permission in writing. Binfield Cricket Club will not share your information for marketing purposes with any companies.

With respect to your Membership Information Form, we collect this information directly from you to formally register you as a member of the Club. This information collected from you may be duplicated in some cases with the Website Account. However, the form does go further to collect emergency information, contact information of next of kin and medical information for the sole purpose of your health and safety.

In this Membership Information Form we ask that you give consent that in an emergency situation the club may act in your place if the need arises for the administration of emergency first aid and/or other medical treatment which in the opinion of a qualified medical practitioner may be necessary. We also ask for your consent that in such an occurrence all reasonable steps will be taken to contact your Next of Kin (entered in this form). 

We use live streams / photographs / recordings from capturing devices with the purpose of creating social media content themed around the Club. We may also use these media elements to create training programs, materials for publicity and use in marketing and advertising initiatives. Please read here for more information on consent of use of this information.

Live streams are intended to be made live on Youtube of cricket games played at the Club's ground(s). The camera will capture live stream of the action on the square for the most part. However, this does not mean that the camera will not change position from time-to-time to capture Live Stream of the games from different angles. Live streams also have an overlay graphic showing the score of each teams, the bowler's data including name and the batsmen's data including name (Names as they are entered into PlayCricket).

Highlights will be made for each wicket fallen and each boundary made. These can be replayed on PlayCricket's website for Binfield Cricket Club and made available for replay on Youtube indefinitely. These highlights may be captured into a post-production system where they will be processed before being published on social media platforms including Whatsapp, TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. The images will also be published on our website from time-to-time.

If you have opted-in to one of our official WhatsApp groups we will be able to view your mobile number, your profile name and your profile image. All members of the same group will be able to view the same information about you. Every member of that group will be able to see any information you post into that group. The Club will only use the information you post and your personal data to conduct Club business in your interest with the Club. By joining the WhatsApp community at the Club you agree that we cannot control or limit what is does with the information you post. Please read our WhatsApp Usage policy here.


The legal basis for obtaining / using / sharing the streams / photographs / recordings is based on individual consent. We will ask you for your consent verbally and written form. This applies to players over the age of 18 and parents of children under the age of 18.

Consequences of consent being withheld or withdrawn will require us to pause all live streaming during capture and to obscure/delete all images, recordings or any other media, of the individual without 'given consent'.

Live streams and all other media items are made publicly on the internet via our website TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. All countries that access these platforms may or may not be able to see your image and information.

As part of the Membership Pack we will also be asking for your consent to use your image in social media posts including video and audio materials.

Regarding WhatsApp, passive consent is not legal according to GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018. This means we will be asking for your direct consent to be part of the "Binfield Cricket" WhatsApp community which will include one or more topical official Club WhatsApp groups. Administrators are not to actively "add" members directly to WhatsApp groups they manage. They are to rather send you an invitation link where you can actively consent and opt-in to the Club's WhatsApp community.

As a precaution the Club from time to time will send a form to Members to requests to indicate their consent to being in the Binfield Cricket WhatsApp community.

At any point you are within your rights to withdraw your consent to all or specific consenting items. Please inform the Committee as soon as possible in this case.
