Data security protection
Forest Green Rovers complies with the Data Protection Act 1998. We collect, store and use personal data carefully, and ensure that it is kept secure. As a rule we do not, and will not, pass the information that you give us to any organisations other than to our agents and relevant industry service providers.
However, we may disclose personal information:
· as part of a legal process (i.e. in response to a court order);
· in response to a law enforcement agency’s request;
· where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the health and physical safety of any person;
· or as otherwise permitted or required by law and consistent with legal requirements

We may monitor and record communications with you (including phone conversations and e-mails) for quality assurance and to make sure that we are meeting our legal and regulatory requirements.

The Data Protection Officer, Unicorn House, Russell Street, Stroud, Gloucestershire, GL5 3AX.

What about e-mail?
As an environmentally-focused company we’re committed to taking steps to reduce our reliance on paper in our customer communications. Therefore we will strive to use email communications wherever possible. In the case of marketing communications we will always allow you to unsubscribe from this form of communication. 'Phishing' is a term which refers to the illegal collection of personal information over the internet by criminal organisations or individuals pretending to be official companies.
Frequently, this is by email. Rest assured we will never ask you to email us any personal information, such as payment/financial details or your address! If you are ever concerned or unsure, please contact us first.
We will update our policies on this page with the date of change.
From time to time we include hypertext links to sites which are created by individuals and companies outside Forest Green Rovers. We do this when there is a particular relevance to the topic you're reading about. And whilst we endeavour to check that the content of these sites is suitable, we unfortunately cannot take any responsibility for the practices of the companies who publish the sites that we link to, nor the integrity of the content contained within them.
