As part of offering these services we may at times be required to transfer some of your data to third parties for processing to enable fulfilment of product purchases or provision of services. This will be limited to that which they need to carry out their services and only in the way in which we instruct them as part of a contractual agreement. Your data will never be sold or shared with third parties for the purposes of marketing without seeking prior consent. This would be separate to the consent provided as part of registration to this site.
We may occasionally disclose your personal information as part of a legal process, for example, in response to a court order. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, non-compliance with of our Terms, or as otherwise permitted or required by law and consistent with legal requirements.
HOW WE WILL KEEP YOUR INFORMATION SECURE
Keeping your information secure is very important to us. Your data will be held within the European Union and all reasonable measures to protect and safeguard your data in accordance with applicable data protection law will be taken. Please note that we cannot guarantee that any data transmission over the internet is completely secure.
To help us provide you with information relating to products and services that we think you will be interested in your data may occasionally be processed and held by third parties outside the European Economic Area (EU). If this is the case we will put in place appropriate safeguards to ensure your data is secure and protected in accordance with applicable data protection law.
Please be aware that all open interactive areas (such as The Kop, Messages Board, comments etc) are accessible to all users and their contents effectively available in the public domain. Think carefully about the contents of your submissions and if you choose to make a submission containing your personal information you do so at your own risk.
Protecting the online privacy of children is especially important. If we reasonably believe a user of interactive area to be under 13 years of age, we may need to remove any personal details gathered from such a user and, where possible, all submissions.
You have the right to request that we don't send marketing material to you and this can be done by ensuring the correct consent boxes are ticked at the time of registration or making a purchase.
You can also change personal information and amend your consent using the 'My LFC' facilities when you are signed in to our website or shopping areas.
We also provide the opportunity to unsubscribe or amend your marketing preferences when we send you a marketing email. Please note that if you do unsubscribe or withdraw your consent we will be unable to keep you informed on issues that may be of interest to you such as ticketing availability.
At any time you can make a formal request to provide a copy of any information we hold about you. This should be done in writing (see How do I contact Liverpool Football Club for our contact information). We may charge a small fee up to the maximum allowable amount of £10.
