- c) Why we collect your personal data?
We use your personal data to keep in touch with you. We will only ever collect, store and use your personal data when we have an identified purpose and reason to do so. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) refers to this as a ‘lawful basis’. We may collect your personal data to:
administer your booking via phone, email or messages. The ICO define the lawful basis for processing your data for these purposes as ‘contractual’.
To keep in touch after your event via phone, email or messages either about the event or to market new products and services. Unless we hear from you directly, we will continue to keep in touch for up to 5 years to keep you up to date on relevant information. As defined by the ICO, we use two different lawful bases for processing your data for ‘direct marketing’ purposes:
LEGITIMATE INTEREST. This is where we have identified a genuine and legitimate reason for contacting you, which crucially does not override your rights or interests.
CONSENT. This is where you have given clear consent for us to process your personal data for a specific purpose.
We respect your right to update the way we get in touch with you at any time.
