Updates to our Privacy Policy

Friday 03 Nov 2023

As part of our ongoing commitment to your privacy and data protection rights, we have reviewed and updated our Privacy Policy page to improve the user experience. In summary, these changes include:

Consolidation of a number of privacy policies into a single main policy, with specific ‘drop-downs’ related to your role in football or interaction with The FA

Increased transparency over how The FA uses your personal data, with more examples (and our legal basis) displayed in easy to navigate tables   

Removal of some older privacy policies for expired initiatives, or where the content is now otherwise covered by the updated policy 

Updates to our retention periods which are now displayed in a standalone section of our policy 

Please note that privacy polices related to certain FA products (e.g. Fulltime, Matchday, Whole Game System) remain unchanged and as before, can be found at the bottom of the page. In due course, these policies will also be updated and placed onto their relevant product page. We will provide a further update when this work has been completed. 

We hope you find these updates helpful and if you have any questions or feedback, please contact dataprotection@thefa.com
