External Sites

BlackMansFanClub (BMFC) is not responsible for the content of external internet sites. You are advised to read the privacy policy of external sites before disclosing any personal information.

Information We Collect

BMFC collects data that is both personally identifiable and unidentifiable either electronically or otherwise. Ways we collect information from you are by you voluntarily providing this on registration for use of our site or on signing up for an event. We also use cookies.

Cookies

A “cookie” is a small data text file that is placed in your browser and allows BMFC to recognize you each time you visit this site (customisation etc). Some cookies are necessary for the website to function properly and this is usually related to logging in into the members area. Cookies themselves do not contain any personal information, and BMFC does not use cookies to collect personal information. Cookies may also be used by 3rd party content providers such as newsfeeds.

BMFC use Google Analytics (just like virtually everybody else) which is a service provided by Google. They gather anonymous data of how people are using this site and then provide us with visitor statistics, details of page views etc etc. You can opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics here

You may obtain further information about “cookies” and how they function at http://www.cookiecentral.com

Use of Information

Personal information will never be sold, shared, or rented by BMFC without your prior consent. It should be noted that, because BMFC does not control the privacy practices of external links, we advise that you read and fully understand their privacy policies.

BMFC remains the sole owner of the information collected. Where information is volunteered and subsequently collected that can identify the respondent this is used to provide insights and information that will allow us to provide more events in line with what you want. No contact will be made to individual respondents unless specifically authorised by that respondent.

  • To notify you about changes to our service.

Competitions and Draws

To fully protect your privacy, we reserve the right to amend this policy at any time, and for any reason. We will post the amended terms on this website as they occur and encourage you to frequently check for updates. This Privacy Policy was last amended on 20 September 2012.

No Contract or Liability

Remember The Risks Whenever You Use The Internet

While we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you transmit to BlackMansFanClub (BMFC) and you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords or other account information. In addition other Internet sites or services that may be accessible through BlackMansFanClub (BMFC) have separate data and privacy practices independent of us, and therefore we disclaim any responsibility or liability for their policies or actions.
