We may need to collect personal information by law under the terms of a contract with you. If you chose not to give us this personal information, it may delay or prevent us from fulfilling a contract to provide products and services and meeting our obligations. It may also mean that we cannot provide you with our products or services that you have purchased from us.

How we use your personal information
We process information about you and/or your business to enable us to provide our products and services to and to meet our legal or regulatory obligations. This may include sharing it outside of Sporting Phoenix Ltd (t/a Sportspages)
The reasons why we may process your personal information are:
When we send you information we think you might be interested in, you have the right to unsubscribe at any time by contacting us or by following the unsubscribe instructions in our communications.
Change of purpose
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

Transferring your personal data internationally
Personal information we hold about you may be transferred to other countries (which may include countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA)), in particular:

These providers and partners have their own privacy policies to protect your personal data.
Some countries may have less stringent privacy laws than we do, so any information they hold can become subject to their laws and disclosure requirements, including disclosure to governmental bodies, regulatory agencies and private persons.
