All Players who haven't updated their GMS Profile after the e-mail before Christmas, should have received the following over last weekend.
Please update your GMS Profile so we can improve the data provided on the Midlands Website.
|ACTION REQUIRED REMINDER GMS CONSENT
As one of our dedicated players, and as a registered GMS user, we want to let you know about other upcoming changes that are being applied to the GMS platform, and England Hockey websites.
Please see below for an urgent action you'll need to take.
Our teams have been working hard throughout the year to ensure the GMS platform is stable and is functional on match days. This season so far, we have been able to include new fixture and result tickers on the websites, and head-to-head comparisons against fixtures.
Moving forwards, we would like to share team sheets, scorers, and cards on our websites. For the best experience, this would include your name on the website too.
This will benefit both players and hockey volunteers, giving your club greater visibility and profile, and providing a match centre experience for all fixtures and competitions.
The website would only show your name, no other personal information.
We take the usage of data seriously and before your name is shared on our websites, we require you to provide consent – to ensure you are happy for your data to be handled in this way.
If you do not consent, your name will not be sent or shared on the website
If you do want to appear on the website (as shown above), you can provide consent quickly and easily through your GMS Profile.
What happens if I don't consent? If you opt-out, or leave the boxes unchecked, your name will not appear on the websites, and it will show as ‘Withheld’ in any team sheets that are made public.
Can I change my consent? You can opt-in or opt-out at any time, and the websites will reflect your preference at that time.
If you are happy to consent, please update GMS as soon as possible. We are aiming to start showing the new Match Centres on websites early in the new year.
Thank you for your support and wishing you a very happy holiday season!
