Arts Richmond is committed to protecting the personal data we hold in line with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018. We recognise that is it your data and we treat it with respect.
We collect personal data from members, volunteers, supporters and others involved or interested in our work. We use it to keep you informed about our events, as well as volunteering opportunities.
When you join Arts Richmond as a member or an affiliate you fill in a form to provide us with your contact details (name, email address, phone number and address). We hold these details in a secure database so that we can keep you informed about our events, by email and by sending you our monthly newsletter through the post if you would like us to.
If you decide to end your membership, or your membership has lapsed for any reason, we will delete all your data after a period of one (1) year.
If you volunteer with us we will ask for your contact details (name, email address, phone number and bank details - the latter if you are claiming expenses) so that we can let you know important information about your role, and so we can let you know about other events or volunteering opportunities you might be interested in. You are able to unsubscribe from updates not directly relevant to your volunteering role by contacting us directly via email at email@example.com at any time.
If you book an Arts Richmond event, including our Showcoach trips, your booking details (name, address, telephone number and email) will be kept so that we can let you know about other events and Arts Richmond news which may be of interest to you. You are able to unsubscribe from these updates at any time by contacting us directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Your payment information will be processed by a third party provider for the specified event, and will not be stored on Arts Richmond databases. If a refund is required for any reason as outlined via our Terms and Conditions for the event, this will be processed via the original payment method, and if this is not available we will request your preferred refund method for this purpose only.
For anyone signing up to our mailing list, either through our website or through a physical event, your Name and Email address will be imported into MailChimp, which manages our newsletter list(s). At any point you can choose to unsubscribe from our mailings, which means you will not receive any further mailings from us unless you choose to amend your preferences (please contact us at email@example.com to let us know your preferences).
If you make a donation to Arts Richmond, we are required to keep a record of your contact details so that we can claim Gift Aid when applicable. If you make no further donation, your contact details will be deleted from our databases after a six (6) year period.
Sharing your personal data
We will never share any of your information with any other third parties, unless we have your express, written permission to do so in conjunction with specific promotional activities and/or a competition in partnership with another organisation. This information will usually be gathered via specific forms via our website and/or at an event, (where this will be made very clear), and will only be stored by us for this purpose and for the period specified (usually no more than 30 days from the end of the promotion and/or competition).
We will never share your personal data with a third party for marketing purposes. We may however share your details if required to do so by the police, a regulatory or government authority in the course of an official investigation.
