Legal basis for processing personal information (EEA visitors only)
If you are a visitor from the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.
Stats Perform’s right and ability to process the personal information of athletes and other professional sportspeople is based on one (or all) of the following:
We may share your information with leagues, sports federations, coaching partners, the media and betting partners in order to enrich and facilitate the improvement of sport. Please also see the ‘Aggregated data’ section of this Privacy Notice for Athletes and Professional Sportspeople.
If you are an athlete or professional sportsperson you have certain rights granted to you under data protection laws. Please see the ‘Your Rights’ section for further information.
We may collect, use and share “aggregated data” such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. This aggregated data could be derived from your personal information but is anonymised and not considered personal information as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your usage data to calculate the percentage or possession your team has.
Special category information
We do not generally seek to collect sensitive (or “special category”) but may do so with regard to sporting injuries that may affect your participation in sport. The special categories of personal information are information relating to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership, health or sex life, sexual orientation, genetic or biometric information. When we do collect special category personal information we rely on the lawful basis that such processing relating to personal information is manifestly made public via the media. For further information please see our Special Category Data policy found here.
We understand that the security of your information is important to athletes and professional sportspeople. When handling information, security is paramount and we seek to ensure that information is adequately and appropriately protected. We use appropriate, technical and organisational measures to protect the information that we collect and process about you. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing information. Data is encrypted both in transit and at rest and data access is restricted to authorised roles within the company only. Our data processing/storage standards and access regularly reviewed.
International Data Transfers
We are a global business. This means that it may be necessary for us to transfer personal information outside of the country in which it was collected, or the jurisdiction of your residence, when transferring it to other entities or offices within Stats Perform and our service providers and business partners located in other countries. If you are based in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), personal information may be transferred to or accessed from outside the EEA in countries which are not governed by data protection laws equivalent to those in force within the European Union (“EU”).
Specifically, our Website servers are located in the UK, and our group companies and third party service providers and partners operate around the world. This means that when we collect your personal information we may process it in any of these countries.
However, we have taken appropriate safeguards to require that personal information will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Notice for Athletes and Professional Sportspeople. These include implementing the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of personal information between our group companies, which require all group companies to protect personal information they process from the EEA in accordance with European Union data protection law.
We have implemented similar appropriate safeguards with our third party service providers and partners and further details can be provided upon request.
How Long We Retain Your Information
We retain information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, providing historical statistical sports information).
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process information, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store the information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
To determine the appropriate retention period for information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your information, the purposes for which we process information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your personal information. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority.
