This website (Website) is operated by England and Wales Cricket Board Limited (the ECB), the UK governing body for cricket as part of its network of sites.
Unless stated otherwise, the ECB and Your Affiliated Cricket Organisations (which includes your Club) are each a data controller in respect of all personal data collected on this Website which means that we are responsible for ensuring that we do so in full compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and all other related privacy laws.
Links to other websites
Please note, this Website may contains links to other websites that are not controlled by us. These links are provided for your convenience. We are only responsible for our own privacy practices and our security of this Website. We recommend that you check the privacy and security policies and procedures of each and every other website that you visit.
If you are under 16, you will either need to ask your parent or guardian to register you for a course or event or will need the permission of your parent or guardian before the booking for you can be made. We may require your parent or guardian to confirm that they have given permission. We may ask for their contact details so that we can check that they have done so and may carry out checks to confirm that the details you have given us are correct.
We normally only send newsletters and offers and opportunities to those under 16 where their parent or guardian has given consent to them being sent. Parents or guardians of those under 16 can change their mind at any time (see ‘Newsletters, Offers and Opportunities’ below).
The information we collect
In order to provide you with the services you require, we will obtain personal information which will depend on your use of the service:
- for Clubs we will obtain details of the main administrator including contact details
- for instructors we will obtain contact details, the courses and events they apply to deliver and those for which they have been accredited and other details such as their qualifications to deliver the course / event
- for those booking courses or events we will obtain your details including contact details and those for each child who will attend the course / event and other information that is relevant to the particular course or event
The information will be obtained from this Website, telephone conversations, emails and written and verbal communications and from records of the course / event.
Occasionally we may ask for date of birth, for example, where the service you require has age related restrictions, disability information to keep under review equal opportunities within cricket or ethnicity information to enable us to monitor and ensure compliance with anti-discrimination policies or to comply with our obligations to Sport England.
We may supplement the information that you provide with other information that we obtain from our dealings with you (such as other events you or someone you book for have attended, achievements in cricket and details from other ECB services you use or have used such as play-cricket) or which we receive from other organisations, such as Cricket Organisations and Partners.

Disclosing your personal information
Club and instructor use of your personal information
In order to provide and administer courses and events, we will provide relevant details to the Club. Instructors will also be provided with contact details for each person who is booked for one of their courses / events and also the details of the attendee (if different). We only permit instructors to use this information to deal with the administration of the course or event and they are not permitted to use it for any other purpose.
The payment card information you provide will only be available to the payment provider (currently Stripe). This will not be available to the ECB, the Club or the instructor.
As the national governing body for cricket, the ECB has relationships with other cricket related organisations such as County Cricket Boards, cricket clubs and cricket leagues (each a Cricket Organisation) and some of the goods and services available on or through ECB Websites are provided by those Cricket Organisations. Each Cricket Organisation has its own privacy practices and you should check that you are satisfied with them before you provide any personal information to them.

The ECB and relevant Cricket Organisations team up with a selection of carefully chosen commercial partners to work with us on a range of projects and to bring you additional opportunities (Partners).
