This policy sets out how Kettle’s Yard looks after the personal data that you have shared with us.
In this policy, whenever you see the words ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’, it refers to Kettle’s Yard.
By using our website, social media pages, signing up to receive our emails and providing your information you consent to our collection and use of the information you provide in the way(s) set out in this policy. If you do not agree to this policy please do not use our website, social media pages or services.
We may make changes to this policy from time to time. If we do so, we will post the changes on this page and they will apply from the time we post them. This policy was last published in May 2018.
Personal data is information that can be used to help identify an individual, such as name, address, phone number or email address.
It’s important that you read the full policy to understand what information we hold, how we may use it, and what your rights are – but if you don’t have time to read it all now, here’s a quick summary:
This policy applies to the website, our use of emails for marketing purposes, and any other methods we use for collecting information. It covers what we collect and why, what we do with the information, what we won’t do with the information, and what rights you have.
We will only ever collect the information we need – including data that will be useful to help improve our services. We collect two kinds of information:
We collect this information in connection with specific activities, such as newsletter requests, ticket bookings, product purchases, feedback, donations etc. The information is either needed to fulfil your request or to enable us to provide you with requested information. You don’t have to disclose any of this information to browse the website.
We will use the information you provide to:
We only send marketing information to people who have specifically said that they agree to us doing this, and we will only do so in the way(s) they have agreed to.
If you want to receive this information but haven’t opted in, you can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by signing up to emails here: www.kettlesyard.co.uk/signup
If we contact you by email, marketing what we offer, every message we send will include a link to opt out of receiving future messages if you change your mind. If we contact you by other means and you want to change how – or if – you receive our communications, please email us on email@example.com or call us on 01223 748100.
We will only share your information if:
– abide by the requirements of the Data Protection Act
– treat your information as carefully as we would
– only use the information for the purposes it was supplied (and not for their own purposes or the purposes of any other organisation)
– allow us to carry out checks to ensure they are doing all these things.
Information is stored by us on computers located in the UK. We may transfer the information to other offices and to other reputable third-party organisations as explained above – they may be situated inside or outside the European Economic Area. We may also store information in paper files.
We place a great importance on the security of all personally identifiable information associated with our supporters, customers and users. We have security measures in place to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of personal data under our control. For example, only authorised personnel are authorised to access user information and we use secure server software (SSL) to encrypt financial and personal information you input before it is sent to us. While we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of data will not occur while it is under our control, we use our best efforts to try to prevent this.
Unfortunately, the transmission of data across the internet is not completely secure and whilst we do our best to try to protect the security of your information we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of data will not occur whilst data is being transferred.
Where you or we have provided a password enabling you to access parts of our websites or use our services, it is your responsibility to keep this password confidential. Please don’t share your password with anyone.
We will keep your information only for as long as we need it to provide you with the goods, services or information you have requested, to administer your relationship with us, to comply with the law, or to ensure we do not communicate with people that have asked us not to. When we no longer need information we will always dispose of it securely, using specialist companies if necessary to do this work for us.
We never sell or share your information to other organisations to use for their own purposes.
The Data Protection Act gives you certain rights over your data and how we use it. These include:
If you wish to exercise any of these rights please contact the Data Protection Officer in writing at Kettle’s Yard, Castle Street, Cambridge CB3 0AQ or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note it is our policy to charge the statutory maximum fee of £10 for a subject access request.
