Online shop, Catalogue and Archive

To be able to use the SPORTident SI-Card system we have to ask for and store some basic personal information about you. By using our online system to purchase an SI-Card or by registering an existing SI-Card for the unified UK database of SI-Card owners, you consent to the collection and use of this data in the manner described.

Buying a New SI-Card

When buying a new SI-Card we will ask you for your name, address, email address and telephone number. The address you give will be used to mail out your new SI-Card and the email address will be used to send out a confirmation of your purchase. The telephone number allows us to contact you if there are any problems with your purchase.

If you choose to pay by credit card we will also ask you for your credit/debit card details. These are only held by Global Payments (who process all credit and debit card transactions), not by SPORTident UK Ltd.

Registering an SI-Card

If you choose to register your SI-Card on the unified UK database of SI-Card owners we will ask you for your SI-Card number, name, date of birth and gender. This information is the minimum we require to add you to the database as it allows us to calculate your age category and class. We will also ask you for details of any sports you take part in and, where appropriate, the membership numbers and club names associated with these sports. This information about your sports is optional.

The reason for having a unified UK Database of SI-Card owners is to make this limited information available to event organisers and their sport's governing body for use with the SPORTident timing system. Therefore by registering an SI-Card on the database you accept that your data will be made available in this way. This includes allowing authorised event organisers to download this limited information directly from the internet. We do not use or provide this information to anyone for a commercial purpose and can reassure you that as we do not hold addresses or telephone numbers.

The SPORTident Email List.

When you register your SI-Card on the unified UK database you are also given the option to opt into the SPORTident mailing list. If you choose to do this we will use your email address to keep you informed of any developments to SPORTident and of any events that are using the SPORTident timing system. Any email address you supply for this purpose will only be used by SPORTident and will not be made available to any third parties.

If you have any questions or comments about our privacy policy please send them to Martin Stone at SPORTident UK.
