11 HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We will normally retain your personal data for as long as you use our services and for up to three years after your last use of our services or your last interaction with us (for example, the last time you opened an electronic communication from us, visited one of our websites, played for a local rugby club or purchased a ticket for an event at Principality Stadium). We may then destroy such personal data without further notice or liability.

However, in some circumstances we will retain your personal data for a different time period, including:

i) we will retain recorded CCTV footage at Principality Stadium in accordance with applicable legislation, unless we are required to retain it for longer (for example, if we are investigating an incident, or have been asked to retain specific CCTV footage for a longer period by government or law enforcement officials); and
ii) we will retain your personal data for longer if we believe we may need it in order to respond to any claims, to protect our rights or the rights of a third party, and we will retain your personal data for longer if we are required to retain them in order to comply with applicable laws;
iii) if any personal information is only useful for a short period (e.g. for a specific marketing campaign), we may delete it at the end of that period.

We will always retain your personal data in accordance with data protection law and never retain your personal data for longer than is necessary.

If you have opted out of receiving marketing communications from us, we will need to retain certain personal information indefinitely so that we know not to send you marketing communications again.
