Manchester 2002 privacy statement

Manchester 2002 Ltd takes the privacy of all its users and customers very seriously, and takes great care with user and customer information. This privacy statement outlines how your personal information is treated and forms part of the terms and conditions of this site. We may occasionally modify our privacy statement, and when this happens, we will notify you via our homepage.

In order to provide our users and customers with an individually tailored range of services, we may collect certain specific personal information from our websites, from telephone responses, or from written information sent to us. We may, for example, keep a record of your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, gender, and preferences. We may also use such data to communicate with you, for record keeping purposes, and in aggregate (and therefore anonymously) for market research purposes, to track activity on our web sites, to publish trends or to improve usefulness and content.

Any personal data relating to you will only be used and recorded by us in accordance with current data protection legislation and this privacy statement. We are registered in the United Kingdom under the Data Protection Act.

Unless you have voluntarily given us the information, or we have legally permitted reasons for processing it without your consent, we will always ask for your explicit consent if we need to process any data categorised as "sensitive" by the Data Protection Act, 1998.

Sharing information

We may wish from time to time to exchange, rent or trade your personal information to and with carefully selected third party companies in order to provide a wider range of offerings than would otherwise be possible. We will also share your information with our sponsors whose products or services may be of interest to you.

In addition, because the internet is an international medium, these companies may be both inside and outside the European Economic area. We will endeavour to ensure there is adequate and appropriate protection for any personal data transferred outside the United Kingdom or the European Economic area.

If you do not wish us to use your information in any of these ways, please see details of how you can unsubscribe below.

In the unlikely event that this website and the customer data relating to it are sold to another data controller, we will endeavour to ensure that your rights and freedoms in respect of the processing of your personal data are adequately and appropriately protected.

We reserve the right to pass on your personal information to any law enforcement agencies requesting it in connection with the commission of any offence, once we are reasonably satisfied as to the circumstances surrounding the request.


We will endeavour to take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information but cannot guarantee security of any data you disclose online. You accept the inherent security risks of providing information over the internet.


Your participation on our site may mean that we occasionally contact you with the opportunity to enter competitions. Entry to competitions is voluntary, and you are under no obligation to take up an invitation from us to enter. Should you choose to enter a competition, we will treat the information you provide with the same high standard of care as all other customer information, and use the information provided strictly within the entry terms of the competition and this privacy statement.


We hope that you will be delighted with the range of services you are offered. However, you may request that we cease contacting you at any time, by having your data removed from our database. This is called unsubscribing, and may be achieved by choosing the unsubscribe option on the subscription form and stating your email address in the box provided or alternatively send an e-mail to us at unsubscribe@manchester2002.co.uk. Please allow seven days for the unsubscribe process to be completed.
