If you are a moron or, worse still, a civil servant, you may not be aware that every website you use collects your IP address. What’s more, if you are that stupid, you may not realise that when you enter your name and email address into a website, the owner of that website keeps your name and address.
Shutup! Yes, really.
So in an effort to keep civil servants to the high quality of salary, restaurants and pensions they have become accustomed, FieldsportsChannel.tv hereby offers this privacy and cookies policy notice in order to comply with GDPR. Legally, it’s about as watertight as a soft sponge, but if you feel the need to sue us, then hop out the handcart, you’re already in hell.

Please note that sometimes we will require you to provide additional personal information, and sometimes what a snowflake will consider is sensitive personal information.
Where we provide personalised services, we may ask your permission to review third-party data about you, for example, your Twitter or Facebook feeds, to get to know you better and to provide more effective personalisation. Some of our services enable you to sign-in via a third-party service, such as Facebook. If you choose to sign-in via a third-party app, you will be presented with a dialog box which will ask your permission to allow FieldsportsChannel.tv to access your personal information (e.g. your full name, date of birth, email address and any other information you have made publicly accessible). Please note that any information that is not required by the particular service you have opted to use will not be retained by FieldsportsChannel.tv.
4. How will FieldsportsChannel.tv use the information it collects about me?
FieldsportsChannel.tv will use your personal information for a number of purposes including the following:
• to provide our services, activities or online content, to provide you with information about them and to deal with your requests and enquiries;
• to provide you with the most user-friendly online navigation experience;
• where we provide personalised services, we may analyse the information you supply, as well as your activity on our (and other) services, so that we can offer a more relevant, tailored service.
• we may also show you relevant advertising on third-party sites, as set out in section 7;
• to use IP addresses and device identifiers to identify the location of users, to block disruptive use, to establish the number of visits from different countries, and to determine whether you are accessing the services from the UK or not.
• for analysis and research purposes so that we may improve the services offered by FieldsportsChannel.tv. This can include using geo-demographic information from external sources, where this helps us ensure we are making something for everyone;
• we may also use and disclose information in aggregate (so that no individuals are identified) for marketing and strategic development purposes; and
• a certain amount of our advertising is tailored to the individual, a common practice known as online behavioural advertising.
We will not use your information to start a war, increase Third World debt or hunger, nor rain down famine and pestilence. In short, we will only cause you First World problems.

7. Will I be contacted for marketing purposes?
FieldsportsChannel.tv will only send you marketing emails or contact you on FieldsportsChannel.tv platforms where you have agreed to this or you have had prior correspondence with Fieldsports Channel staff.
We offer regular emails, including a weekly update, to let you know about FieldsportsChannel.tv programmes and services. From time to time we may also contact you to ask your views on issues affecting FieldsportsChannel.tv.
We may personalise the message content based upon any information you have provided to us and your use of FieldsportsChannel.tv platforms. If you find ‘Hi <First Name>’ is creepy, let us know.
We may use information which we hold about you to show you relevant advertising on third-party sites (e.g. Facebook, Google, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter). This could involve showing you an advertising message where we know you have a FieldsportsChannel.tv account and have used FieldsportsChannel.tv products and services. If you don’t want to be shown targeted advertising messages from FieldsportsChannel.tv, some third-party sites allow you to request not to see messages from specific advertisers on that site in future. If you want to stop all personalised services from FieldsportsChannel.tv, including targeted advertising messages on third-party sites you can visit Your Account in Using FieldsportsChannel.tv and disable personalisation there.
8. Will FieldsportsChannel.tv share my personal information with anyone else?
We will keep your information within FieldsportsChannel.tv except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies, including for child protection reasons) or as described in this section and section 9.
Generally, we will use your information within FieldsportsChannel.tv and will only share it outside FieldsportsChannel.tv where you have requested it or given your consent. However, we may share with third-party sites (e.g. Facebook, Google, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter) some data, with appropriate security measures, to show you relevant advertising on third-party sites. And if we are waterboarded by the CIA, we will tell them everything.
Sometimes FieldsportsChannel.tv uses third parties to process your information on our behalf, for example to provide services or analysis. FieldsportsChannel.tv requires these third parties to comply strictly with its instructions and FieldsportsChannel.tv requires that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes, unless you have explicitly consented to the use of your personal information in this way.
We may share your personal information internally (i.e. with other FieldsportsChannel.tv divisions).
9. Offensive or inappropriate content on FieldsportsChannel.tv websites
If you post or send content which may reasonably be deemed to be offensive, inappropriate or objectionable anywhere on or to FieldsportsChannel.tv websites or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any FieldsportsChannel.tv service, FieldsportsChannel.tv may remove such content.
Where FieldsportsChannel.tv reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any applicable laws, for example on hate speech, FieldsportsChannel.tv may disclose your personal information to relevant third parties, including to law enforcement agencies or your internet provider. FieldsportsChannel.tv would only do so in circumstances where such disclosure is permitted under applicable laws, including data protection law.
10. What if I am a user aged under 18?
If you are aged 18 or under, you are supposed to get your parent/guardian’s permission before you provide any personal information to FieldsportsChannel.tv. Well you really do that? Yeah, right. So the civil servants reckon if we say ‘If you are aged 18 or under, please get your parent/guardian’s permission before you provide any personal information to FieldsportsChannel.tv’ you will go ‘Sure. Great idea. Mum! Dad! LGBTQ Parent Figure! Hurry here I need your consent!’. If they are dim enough to care, they can email it to us.
11. How long will FieldsportsChannel.tv keep my information?
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with FieldsportsChannel.tv. If you delete your FieldsportsChannel.tv account then your personal information is deleted immediately, and the remaining information is anonymised for analytical purposes. For further information about deleting your FieldsportsChannel.tv account, please see section 12 below.
Where you contribute content together with your personal information (User Generated Content or UGC), it’s going to be there for the rest of Western Civilisation. Get over it.
12. Can I delete my data?
Deleting your FieldsportsChannel.tv account will erase personal information in your account that we have about you and it will mean data we hold about how you have used FieldsportsChannel.tv will be made anonymous.
13. Can I find out what personal information FieldsportsChannel.tv holds about me?
Under the UK’s Data Protection Act you have the right to request a copy of the personal information FieldsportsChannel.tv holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected (we charge up to £10000000 for information requests and require you to prove your identity with as many as 200 pieces of approved identification. We will not tell you what is approved or not. You have to keep on guessing until you get it right. Are you building a picture here?). We will use reasonable efforts consistent with our legal duty to supply, correct or delete personal information about you on our files. If you are within the UK, please address requests and questions about this or any other question about this Privacy & Cookies Policy to email@example.com
14. What if I am accessing FieldsportsChannel.tv websites outside the UK?
Brilliant isn’t it, this internet thing.

Each website can send its own cookie to your web browser if your browser’s preferences allow it. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
