We promises to respect any personal data you share with us, or that we get from other organisations, and to keep it safe. We aim to be clear when we collect your data and not do anything you wouldn’t reasonably expect.

We will only contact you by email if you actively consent to this, unless we believe there is a legitimate interest to contact you. By consenting to our emails or opting in to email communications, you grant us permission to use your email address to send you email marketing communication. At any stage you may choose to opt out of such communications by unsubscribing from the relevant communication.
We will not sell your data. We will not share your data for marketing purposes unless you have actively consented to this. However, in some circumstances we may need to share your details with a third party for processing. This could be if we run an event in partnership with another organisation and they need your details in order to fulfil your tickets or experience. For example, if you are attending an event with us, we may need to share your details to add you to a guest list.
We rely on volunteers to manage this website and do sell advertising space or generate any income in any way. This website does have sponsors that cover the costs of hosting and domain name registrations. Details of these sponsors can be found in the footer of this website.
We may use profiling and screening techniques to ensure that the communications we send you are relevant to you. This allows us to provide an improved experience for our supporters.
When building a profile of our users we may analyse geographic and demographic information, as well as your online behaviour and activity history, to better understand your interests so we can contact you with relevant messages. An example of this would be looking at your location so we can share information about relevant events in your area.
You can opt out of your data being used in this way by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
