Why we are collecting your data?

Your personal data is being collected to enable us to carry out our function with regards to running events at the Centre.

We may also use it to contact you about invitations to showcases, surprise treats through the post as well as news and offers. Use of your data for this purpose will only be carried out on an opt-in basis.

Our legal basis for processing the data

Data protection legislation sets out when we are lawfully allowed to process your data. The lawful basis that applies to this processing is Article 6, section 1(b) of the GDPR which states that ‘processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract’.

Alternatively, for marketing data we use Article 6, section 1(a) of the GDPR which states that ‘the data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes’.

We may also have to hold certain types of data by law. This is covered under Article 6, section 1(c) of the GDPR which states that ‘processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject’.

With whom we will be sharing the data?

In order for us to provide services and equipment for events, it will occasionally be necessary to share information with our suppliers. We will ensure that only the minimum data required is shared and that each of our suppliers follows our strict instructions on the processing and security of the supplied data.

How long will we keep your data for?
Your personal data will be held for as long as you are an active customer. With regards to marketing data, this will be held until you request to opt-out from our mailing list.
