Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole custodians of the information collected on this site. We do not administer your data ourselves except where only low level technical resources are required.
We only collect and have access to information that you voluntarily give us or has been provided by an organisation representing you via online registration, email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information in association with sports matches you participate in; to send communication to you on behalf of 'Macoocoo Groups' and organisations you are associated with; or for important updates associated with your affiliation with the site. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organisation and your associated groups, other than as necessary to fulfil the services you agree to. This may include integration with the systems of 'groups' you join or are associated with. For example : an integration with your sporting club's internal membership system or a tournament organiser's security pass system.
"Group Administrators" and members with the role of "Member Administration" of the groups you join or are associated with within the site will have access to and be able to maintain a copy of your data. This is required to permit the groups you join to validate who you are, ascertain if you are eligible for their services and communicate with you. This may include tournament organisers informing you of future events, tournaments, products etc. At times, groups may maintain data about you which you did not provide. They will have gathered the data from outside this site and are maintaining it within. You may request at any time what data another group may be holding about you.
For clarity, in Macoocoo, a "Group" is a generic term for a body of people. This may be a sports union, tournament organiser, sports club, section within a club, company, supporters group, sports team etc. Group owners can create as many nested groups as they require. People can be associated with any group directly by requesting to join or being nominated to join. Groups of type 'team' cannot be 'joined'. Instead one is associated indirectly by being selected for a match as a player / reserve or providing supporting capacity such as manager, coach, physio etc.
In order to use this website, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the services on our site in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself, but it is not required unless you join organisations that require this (eg over 35s men's sports team). Some organisations require proof of identity and eligibility to participate in any capacity at their events. You will need to contact those organisations if you do not wish to provide the proof directly to the site.
