Website Privacy Policy of RugbyHow

Our aim is to protect your privacy.

We assume all users of our site want to know that their data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not fall into the hands of a third party.

Our policy is both specific and strict. If you think our policy falls short of your expectations or that we are failing to abide by our policy, do please tell us.

We are constantly vigilant for credit card or other fraud. We report all charge backs to a credit reference agency. If you have any reason to seek the return of money paid, please contact us rather than your credit card issuer.

Information may be unlawfully available to hackers and snoopers. We take no responsibility for this. The risk is no different from a similar risk in a bricks and mortar establishment.

Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site. If this policy should change in the future (most unlikely), then we shall provide notification in advance, and the opportunity for all users to indicate whether or not they would prefer that we do not provide the information to third parties as proposed.

We collect data on all visitors to the site as described below. We do not market to children and avoid collecting data from children by requiring that no person under the age of 13 registers for membership of the site.

Here is a list of the information we collect, and why it is necessary to collect it:

    Cookies and Web Beacons are used by third party vendors, including Facebook and Google (and its partners) to serve ads based on your visits to this and other sites on the internet. For example, Facebook may do this for Conversion Tracking and this is how Google ads work.

    We at the website also make use of the data gathered so that we know more about our visitors in general terms. For example relating to demographics or usage of a particular page or service. In this way we are able to enhance the site.

    There are steps you can take to be more informed about Cookies and Web Beacons and to affect how they are or are not used. Declining cookies may affect the ease-of-use of some websites.
