The following statement explains our policy regarding the personal information we collect about you.
By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable S4C and its service providers to provide you with the services you select. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. When using your personal information S4C will act in accordance with current legislation and aim to meet current Internet best practice.
When you supply personal information to any of S4C's websites (e.g. for competitions), we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use the data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it (see the privacy notices on particular webpages that let you know why we are requesting the information) and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.
In general, any information you provide to S4C will only be used within S4C and by its agents and service providers. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to S4C's websites or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on S4C's websites, S4C can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met, or, in the case of a club or website membership, you no longer wish to continue your registration as a member. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have taken part in other website services (e.g. competitions), that information will be held as long as is necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
If you are notified on an S4C website that your information may be used to allow S4C to contact you for "service administration purposes", this means that S4C may contact you for a number of purposes related to the service you have signed up for. For example, we may wish to provide you with password reminders or notify you that the particular service has been suspended for maintenance. We will not contact you for promotional purposes, unless you specifically agree to be contacted for such purposes at the time you submit your information on the site, or at a later time if you sign up specifically to receive such promotional information.
You have the right to request a copy of the personal information S4C holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We charge £10 for information requests.) Please address requests to the Data Protection Officer, S4C, Parc Ty Glas, Llanishen, Cardiff CF14 5DU.
If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian's permission beforehand whenever you provide personal information to S4C's websites. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information.
