If making a purchase for tickets, you may need to provide your debit/credit card details which are used in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). If you are purchasing tickets for a disabled supporter, we may require proof of disability (PIP forms) but this is for visual purposes only and is not copied or recorded at any point and is merely to confirm eligibility as necessary.

Why is this information collected?

The primary purposes of collecting this information is to allow us to complete the purchasing process, meaning we’re able to either post your ticket to your home address or to verify your purchase when collecting tickets from the Ticket Office.

Collecting this information also allows us to contact you in the event of a fixture/event being cancelled or postponed, whilst also providing a trace on your purchase should you require a replacement ticket or refund.

Information such as your date of birth or home address will never be shared with anyone other than Leigh Leopards (see below for more information about this), but may be used to analyse the age or location profile of ticket purchasers for a particular fixture/event.

We may also wish to contact you via e-mail to promote future fixtures/events at Leigh Sports Village that you may wish to attend. You will be given the option to opt-out of receiving these marketing e-mails at all times.

Where is this information stored?

Your information is stored securely within the systems of Advanced Computer Systems. You can view their privacy policy HERE. In order to provide our products and services, we appoint other organisations to carry out some of the data processing on our behalf, including but not limited to payment processing organisations.

Does anyone else receive this information?
