Privacy Policy

(Last updated 1st November 2018)


This privacy policy sets out how IHRB collects and processes personal information through the Centre for Sport and Human Rights. IHRB handles a small amount of personal data and does so in compliance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2016 and the Data Protection Act 2018. (The GDPR applies to personal data of all citizens in the European Economic Area, regardless of where the data controller or data processor operates.) We will not use your data for any other than the purposes set out below.

What Data We Collect And How

IHRB may collect and process the following personal data:

  • Technical data (e.g.: IP address, geo-location)
  • Identity and contact data (e.g.: first and last name, professional role, address, phone, email, social media handle).

You may share your personal data with IHRB through: 

  • visiting our website (cookies);
  • completing online forms;
  • directly contacting the Centre or IHRB staff;
  • accessing our social media;
  • or otherwise communicating with us or having a professional connection with our work.

What We Do With The Data We Collect

Using Your Data To Contact You

IHRB largely uses personal data to enable communications with individuals and organisations that are interested or involved in human rights as part of the legitimate interests of the company (where those interests are not overridden by your fundamental rights), or where required by legal or regulatory obligations.

IHRB sends occasional invites, reports, updates and newsletters to its database of contacts, which we believe will be of relevance and interest to you (including to newsletter recipients who have expressed an interest in particular programme areas).

If you receive communication from IHRB and would like your details removed from our contacts list, please email privacy@ihrb.org and we will remove you immediately from all future communications.

Third Party Processors

We sometimes use third parties (data processers) to ‘process’ information collected or stored on our behalf. We explain below when and why we process data through third parties:

  • Google Analytics

IHRB uses Google Analytics (GA) to track site user interaction by means of cookies (see box). We use this data to determine the number of people using this site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website. Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google does not grant us access to this. 

  • Social Media

The IHRB website uses AddThis which facilitates social sharing of its content (via the ‘Connect with Us' buttons on our site). In order to deliver this service AddThis creates cookies, which may collect information from visitors, this information does not directly identify an individual and is instead designed to identify the devices used by visitors. You can opt out at any time using the AddThis opt out form: http://www.addthis.com/privacy/opt-out.

IHRB also has Twitter, Facebook, Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn accounts. Their privacy policies can be found on their websites.

  • Other Data Processors 

In the course of running our website and the charity, we use a number of other data processing organisations, such as event co-hosts, social media managers, web hosts and developers,web traffic analysers, and event invite software. For more information please contact us at privacy@ihrb.org.

There are certain other scenarios under which IHRB, its programmes, subsidiaries or other assets may share personal data:

  • if  IHRB (or one of its programmes or assets) changes governance, becomes independent, or becomes part of another organisation.
  • to protect IHRB from fraud, breach of confidence, theft of proprietary materials and other financial or business crimes, 
  • to comply with legal and regulatory obligations and bring and defend legal claims.This may ultimately involve disclosure of your information to competent regulatory, prosecuting and other law enforcement and governmental agencies and legal firms. 

Third Party Websites

The website may contain links to other websites which are outside our control and are not covered by this Privacy Policy. IHRB is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of these third party websites.

We will delete the information that we hold about you when we no longer need it. Specific information about our record retention policies is available on request. Please contact us at privacy@ihrb.org.
