Offers and opportunities

Our commercial partner programme is designed to support the Club and also to bring customers, supporters and website users a diverse range of Manchester Phoenix associated and Manchester Phoenix branded offers at competitive prices.

Manchester Phoenix and/or these commercial partners would like to contact you to tell you more about the offers available to you and about a range of other Manchester Phoenix initiatives in a number of ways, including by post, telephone, text/picture/video message, digital television, fax or by e-mail. If you express an interest in an offer from one of our commercial partners, that partner may let us know.

This enables us to take your views and interests into account when choosing our commercial partners and developing the programme.

What to do if you do not want to receive details of offers?

Please be assured, you are under no obligation to buy anything or to participate in any Manchester Phoenix initiatives, however, if you prefer not to be contacted by us, you can opt out by clicking the relevant boxes on the screen upon which you provide information or by writing to us by mail or e-mail (see the section "Contact us"). You can change your mind at any time.

Please note, if you do opt out of receiving information, we and/or our commercial partners will be unable to keep you informed of new services, products, events or special offers that may interest you and our ability to inform you of ticketing opportunities may be affected.

Use of your information outside the European Union

Some of the organisations to which we may disclose your personal information may be situated outside of the European Union. In order to provide you with the products and services you require, we may need to transfer your personal information to these countries some of which do not have laws that protect privacy rights as extensively as in the United Kingdom. If we do transfer your personal information to other territories, we will take proper steps to ensure that your information is protected in accordance with this privacy policy.

Unfortunately the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to secure your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Web Site; any transmission is at your own risk.

Security of information

We take the security of your personal information seriously. When you submit your credit card details to us, we use industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to guard your information.

Monitoring

We may monitor or record telephone calls for security purposes and to improve the quality of services that we provide to you.
