We may receive information about you and your activities on and off the BFBS TV Player using third party analytics tools which may include use of third party cookies delivered to you.

From time to time we might wish to provide you with important information about other BFBS welfare services, such as BFBS Radio, BFBS TV, Forces Cinemas, Forces News and similar information we think is relevant to the welfare services we provide to the British Armed Forces, or we wish to communicate with you about any changes to the service, or if the MOD instructs us to communicate with you. We may send you such information by post or email.
We transfer certain information with our service provider partners who provide the BFBS TV Player service and infrastructure. This helps us analyse how our services are used, measure the effectiveness and popularity of programmes, channels and services, provide technical information on the reliability of the service and apps to help us improve and better meet the audience needs as far as practically possible. Our partners must adhere to strict confidentiality obligations in a way that is consistent with this Data Policy and the agreements we enter into with them.
We may also share your personal information if required to do so to enable providers of connectivity working for the MOD to deliver the BFBS TV Player service, for example where a secure connection is necessary.
In some circumstances, we may have to disclose your personal information by law, because a court or military or civilian police or other law enforcement agency has asked us for it.
You may request details of the personal information that we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. If you would like a copy of the information held about you please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
