Data Deletion Policy


This document sets out our policy for responding to requests for deletion of data under UK data protection law. This document explains the rights of the data subject in relation to data deletion and the responsibilities of FanClips in responding to such a request.

Individual Rights

An individual has the right to erasure, also known as ‘the right to be forgotten. The principle underpinning this right is to enable an individual to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing.

When does the right to erasure apply?

As stipulated in US data protection law, individuals have a right to have personal data erased and to prevent processing in specific circumstances:

  • Where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected/processed;
  • When the individual withdraws consent;
  • When the individual objects to the processing and there is no other legal ground for the relevant processing activity;
  • When the personal data was unlawfully processed;
  • Where the personal data has to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation.


What information does FanClips retain?

The FanClips application stores data about individuals in order to create teams and associate an individual with other team members. We store the name, e-mail address, gender, weight, height (if provided), and league name. This data is stored and used in accordance with our Privacy Policy, which can be found at

This information is not stored on any other system.

How can data be deleted?

A FanClips user may have his/her account completely deleted from the system by emailing Data may still remain in the system’s backup files, which are deleted periodically. We undertake to perform the deletion within one month (30 calendar days) and will send you a confirmation once the information has been deleted. Wherever possible, we will aim to complete the request in advance of the deadline.
