The Tennis Integrity Unit ("TIU", "we", "us") is the dedicated anti-corruption unit for professional tennis and is charged with enforcing the sport's zero tolerance policy towards gambling related corruption world-wide.
We are an unincorporated association established and funded by: the International Tennis Federation ("ITF"), the Association of Tennis Professionals ("ATP"), the Women's Tennis Association ("WTA") and the Grand Slam Committee (together referred to as the "Governing Bodies").
Preventing and detecting gambling-related corruption: We collect personal data about tennis players, courtsiders, gamblers and other individuals in the tennis community, including tournament officials, coaches, physiotherapists, match supervisors, umpires, media representatives and other individuals who have obtained accreditation for the purposes of attending a professional tennis match or other competition organised, sanctioned or recognised by any of the Governing Bodies as a player guest or as tournament support provider.
The personal data we collect is from a variety of sources and includes but is not limited to the following:
'No-credentials' list: TIU operates (on behalf of itself and the Governing Bodies) a 'no credentials' list of individuals who are subject to exclusion from tournaments sanctioned or recognised by the Governing Bodies. In doing so, it processes details such as:
Participation in TIPP: We process the following personal data in the context of administering TIPP:
We may use personal information:
We may share personal information with third parties, including but not limited to:
We also may share your information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; as otherwise required by law; when we believe it is appropriate to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal or suspected illegal activities otherwise than in the context of the Uniform Tennis Anti-Corruption Program; and to protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of TIU and others. If we are organised or restructured to another organisation, we may transfer personal information we hold to that organisation.
In order to determine whether an investigation should proceed to the hearing stage, we disclose the relevant investigation file to the Professional Tennis Integrity Officers representing each Governing Body, two of which (i.e. the ATP and the WTA) are established in the US. We also send personal data to the ATP and WTA in the context of the operation of the 'no-credentials' list. In addition, we send personal data to betting companies located outside Europe to ascertain whether individuals subject to the Uniform Tennis Anti-Corruption Program have betting accounts and to obtain further information where required.
The data protection and others laws of countries outside the European Economic Area may not be as comprehensive as those in the United Kingdom, but we will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal data is protected.
You have a right to access the personal information held about you. To obtain a copy of the personal information (for which we may charge a small fee) or to tell us about any inaccuracies in the personal data we hold about you, please contact us using the contact details provided below.
