Session Photography

  • Please note that there may be video filming or photographs taken of your child / children at some sessions (images will not be accompanied with names, although on occasion first names may be used, such as in TV interviews). We may use any such recordings and images for our charitable-related activities where such use is in our legitimate interests, (so long as our interests are not overridden by the impact on you). Such activities may include Trust promotional and informative activities and marketing materials, e.g. leaflets, newsletters and social media posts and displaying such images on the Official Trust website in relation to any programme updates or competition / promotion operated by the Trust. From time to time, the Trust may be visited by the Press / Media, e.g. Club (Hull City Tigers), radio, newspaper, TV, who may record interviews.

  1. News Updates and Marketing Information

  • You may withdraw your consent to us using your information for the purposes mentioned in section 3.1 above at any time.  This can be done by E-mailing us at [email protected] or writing to us at Tigers Trust, Tigers Trust Arena, West Park, Walton Street, Hull, HU3 6GA.

  • Please note that if you withdraw (or do not provide) your consent to us sending you such information, this will mean that you will not be notified by us of any such news or marketing information.
  1. Children and Young People
  • Through our “Juniors” coaching course “Bookings” we collect limited personal data relating to children under the age of 16, i.e. identity data of attendees, as provided by either a parent, legal guardian or a third party with permission from the parent / legal guardian, e.g. grandparent. This personal information will be retained for no longer than is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which we collected it, i.e. the particular coaching course for which the attendee/s is booked on. If you are a parent / legal guardian of a child / children under the age of 18 (‘minors’) and think that we may have information relating to that child / children please contact us using the details provided at the end of this Privacy Policy. We will ask you to prove your relationship to the child / children but if you do so you may (subject to applicable law) request access to and deletion of that child’s personal data.


  • The Trust website is a general audience website. However, we understand that children and young people under 18 may visit the Site, or otherwise interact with us. As such, we would encourage all potential users under the age of 18 to talk with their parents / legal guardians before submitting any content or information to this website, or indeed any other website. Parents / legal guardians should supervise minors when online and we recommend parental control tools be put in place. Users of the Site who indicate they are a minor may be asked to provide a valid E-mail address for their parent / legal guardian so that we may verify parental consent, where required.


  • Any personal information actively collected from children and young people, e.g. programme attendees, will be carried out in compliance with the Data Protection Act 2018. It is our policy not to make a minor’s participation in our activity contingent on the minor disclosing any more personal information than is reasonably necessary in order to do so.


  • No information collected from anyone under the age of 18 will be used for any marketing or promotional purposes.


  • If, whilst attending a session or programme, a minor has an accident, we will keep a record of this to comply with our Health & Safety practices. We may also need to keep the records for legal reasons and may need to share this information with our Insurers, the Health & Safety Executive or any other relevant authority. Accident record information is then collated anonymously to help improve our service to you by identifying areas of improvement. Once anonymised this data is kept indefinitely. This applies to all adult visitors, customers, or clients, if during their visit to the Tigers Trust Arena they may have an accident.
