Legitimate interest: If processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us – the data controller -, any interested third parties, except when those interest are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the you, the data subject.

Contract: If processing is necessary to complete terms of a contract with you, or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a legal contract.

Vital interests: Processing will be carried out if the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life.

All data is stored digitally on a cloud based-password protected system, within a secure facility which has limited access. The IT system is accessible only by employees who require the information in order to perform a specific job role. Every care will be taken to protect your personal data from being subject to loss, theft, misuse, unauthorised access or alteration.

Managing your data preferences

You have the right to control what happens to your data, and have full control over how you are contacted.

We keep contact information (such as mailing list information) until a user unsubscribes or requests that we delete that information. If you choose to unsubscribe from a mailing list, you will be deleted completely and will not receive any marketing correspondence from us, unless you choose to re-register.

Where we are legally required to obtain explicit consent to provide you with marketing materials, we will only provide you with such marketing materials if you have provided consent for us to do so.

If you register for any live events or into any subscriptions, you will receive important emails known as solicited marketing. These emails may include key information about the event you plan to attend, such as directions, or how to download your ticket. These are important for you to receive.

If you want to unsubscribe from mailing lists or any subscriptions, clear instructions on how to do so will be provided within the body of the email, or you can contact the Data Protection Officer directly at and request that communications cease. If at any point you wish to reactivate communications, the Data Protection Officer is also able to assist.
