Why do we collect this information?

When we collect information from you directly we explain the reason for collecting that information at the time of collection.

To fulfil a contract with you:

  • to administer your account and to provide information and membership benefits to you, to notify you about changes to our membership benefits, products, facilities or services;
  • to provide you with any products and services that you request from us;
  • to register you as a qualification or credential holder;
  • to keep you up to date with certain information when this is required because you hold a particular qualification.

When it is in our legitimate interests, and our interests are not overridden by your own interests:

  • to notify you of any changes or proposed changes in any laws, regulations or best practice in relation to CricHIIT and other related activities which we feel may be of interest to you;
  • to ask questions for the purposes of market research;
  • to provide you, with information about goods or services we feel may interest you that are similar to those that you have already obtained, purchased or enquired about. If you are an existing customer, we will only contact you by electronic means (e-mail or text message) with information about goods and services similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale or negotiations of a sale to you;
  • to administer our awards programmes, when you may not be aware of your nomination for such award.

Where we use your information in pursuit of our legitimate interests, you have the right to object to us using your personal information for any of the above purposes. If you wish to object to any of the above processing, please contact us at

When we have obtained your consent to do so;

  • when you have opted in to receive email newsletters and other marketing materials

When we have obtained your explicit consent to do so:

  • when dealing with ‘special categories’ of information such as medical data, biometric or profiling data, passport data or similar as defined by data protection law, for instance medical information gathered to participate in an event, or to hold a particular qualification or licence.

When do we share your information?

We may share your information with certain third parties including:

  • cricket governing bodies, business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with you, or for any service provided to us;
  • event organisers of events held or managed by us who require the information in order to look after your welfare (and who may need to pass the same to emergency and medical services providers, who may be located outside of the EEA);
  • sporting regulatory bodies and law enforcement agencies both in the UK and overseas (including countries outside of the EEA) when it is necessary to comply with our legal obligations.

We may also disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal information in order to comply with any legal or regulatory obligation, or in order to enforce or apply any contract or terms in force between you and us; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Cricket Scotland, our customers, members or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of security, law enforcement, fraud protection and credit risk reduction;
  • if you ask, to provide any verification of your qualifications or experience or if you refer any person to us to obtain any verification of your qualifications or experience, we may use your information to provide the verification sought.

We will only disclose as much information as is required for the third party to fulfil the particular function and where required to do so we will have a contract in place with third parties requiring them to keep your information secure and not to use if for their own purposes.

We may choose to publish certain information in the public domain or the press:

  • We may ask for your consent to use your image or certain personal information for publicity purposes.

How long do we keep your information?

We may keep and process your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, or for as long it is necessary to do so for legal reasons.

We will review your personal information regularly to establish whether we are still entitled to process it. If we decided that we are not entitled to do so, we will stop processing your personal information to the extent that it is appropriate to do so and securely delete or anonymise it.

To determine the appropriate retention period, we will consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of that information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure, and whether we can achieve the purposes for which we process that personal information through other means.

In some cases you can ask us to delete the personal information we hold about you. Please see the section below titled your rights.
