New Zealand Cricket takes your privacy seriously and is committed to protecting your personal information.
The Privacy Statement outlines how we collect, use and disclose personal information in accordance with New Zealand privacy laws. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Collection of personal information
MyBLACKCAPS is the online members club for cricket fans in New Zealand. When you join Cricket Nation by signing up on NZC’s website, we collect your personal data such as your name and email address. You may also choose to provide us with additional information online at any point during your membership.
We also collect your data if you make a purchase from one of NZC’s official third party providers such as Ticketek or Mighty Ape (via the NZC online store). This includes your personal data along with details of what you have purchased. We do not collect or store personal financial information.
If you participate or are involved in delivering cricket at any level, your data will be collected by NZC, its Associations and Clubs as required to fulfil their administrative needs. This data may be subsequently used for statistical reporting and to contact you via email with relevant news and marketing content.
Community Player data
NZC collects personal data via cricHQ for the purposes of the general administration of the game, including statistical analysis and research; and the promotion of the game of cricket, including direct marketing communications. Your personal information will also be held by the cricket club for which you play and the District and Major Associations to which that club is affiliated, for similar purposes. Live scoring data may also be used for the purposes of coaching development, talent identification and development of the game of cricket in New Zealand.
Website cookie data

Cookies also assist us to analyse the profile of our visitors. Cookies do not identify the individual user (unless you are logged in to Cricket Nation whilst browsing), but only the computer that is being used to view the site. These can be session cookies which are deleted when you close your browser and/or persistent cookies which remain on your computer for a longer period of time.
Use of personal information
If you choose to provide us with any of the personal information outlined above, it will be used to deliver the information, products or services, communications, competition entries and offers you request or which we think may be of interest to you (subject to any preferences you have indicated). We may also disclose your personal information to organisations involved in cricket or sporting initiatives in New Zealand, such as the Major Associations or Districts or companies we have engaged to carry out activities on our behalf.
If you no longer wish to receive newsletters, offers or information, please contact us and we will remove you from our database.
The personal information we collect will be retained until you request for it to be removed.
Security and storage
