Privacy policy

Important points

  1. At times your personal data may be shared with third party verification providers.

    Our services are not intended for anyone under 16. We have checks to ensure that we do not knowingly offer our services to or collect personal information from anyone under 16 or anyone using a false identity. These checks involve passing the following information to a third party which verifies the information. If you commence the registration process then you do so on the strict understanding that your personal data will be transferred to that third party and processed accordingly. We reserve the right to change the third parties as and when necessary without reference to you.

    The data we can share with third parties for verification purposes is (Verification Data):

    • your full name;
    • your date of birth;
    • your (passport or other identification document number);
    • your address;
  2. We have various services based outside the European Union.

    When your personal data is transferred outside the EU you will lose the protection of GDPR. By registering, you agree to the transfer of your personal data to North America and Asia – these operations offer a customer service operation using an online portal and they will respond to the queries you have. So by definition, you will be aware of the personal data that they are processing because you will have contacted them with specific queries. They will not receive personal data per se but access our systems remotely. Although your personal data will not leave the EU the fact that it can be accessed and processed remotely from outside the EU constitutes a data transfer. We have conducted due diligence on their operations and are satisfied that their processing of your personal data is GDPR compliant.

    The provider of the portal is GDPR compliant.

    Please feel free to contact us if you require further information.

  3. Making or receiving payments involves the use of third parties who process payments.

    Please refer to Section 4 of our Terms and Conditions. Sporthy involves making payments to view User Content; receiving payments from Members who are viewing User Content or both. To that end you will deal with third party payment processors but will do so independently of your Sporthy membership.

  4. All content is monitored by third parties to ensure that the network is lawful and legal and not brought into disrepute.

    We are happy to share with you details of these service providers. We will always conduct due diligence because we will be sharing your personal data with them.

The privacy policy


Sporthy is a social network which enables Members to share their content; other Members to enjoy content and for some to do both. We refer to those Members who share content as “Instructors” and those Members who pay to view Instructors’ content as “Members”. Most of this policy relates to all Members but where necessary we differentiate between Members and Instructors.

Sporthy is a trading name of Halfday Tony BV (company number 65890523). When people become Members, they share some information with us. This policy sets out the information we collect, how we use it and who we share it with.

We confirm that the lawful basis for processing your data is that by participating with our social network you have contracted with us and the processing of data set out here is part of that contract. The contract is the Terms of Service to which all Members are a party. To the extent that we have to monitor and control use of our site which includes the content posted, the Instructor who posted it and the Members who accessed the content the basis for that processing is to Sporthy a legal obligation.

Payment providers

The volume of payments made by Members to access content, payments made to Instructors for their content and where Members reside means that we use third party payment providers. This involves the transfer of personal data being names and bank details.

When Members make payments these are processed through third party processors. You will contract with those third parties which will be the data controller of that data.

When we receive the payment, we remit the balance to the Instructors, minus management fees. The Instructor will either:

  • contract with the third party processor. We use a number of third party processors; or

  • be paid by us – if this happens the Instructor enters their banking information – each bank and jurisdiction has its own requirements onto our platform. We then arrange for payment.

Third-party content and integrations

At present we do not offer these.

Analytics and advertising services

We do not let other companies collect information about how you use our services.

How long we keep your content

Instructor content

We want you to be in control of your information. At any time a Instructor can delete any content the Instructor chooses to. To the extent content contains pictures or footage of you this is personal data.

Other personal data:

If any User closes the account the personal data that relates to your use of Sporthy and bank details we hold about you will be deleted after six months.

Sporthy has to retain financial information for 7 years This is a legal requirement as Revenue Services can investigate our financial records for that period and we need to retain details of payments made by you and to you.
