GDPR and Privacy Policy

From 25th May 2018 new regulations came into force which gives individuals greater control over the collection and use of their personal data. One of the key principles of the legislation is that data must be processed fairly and that consent must be given unconditionally, with the choice to opt-out if so wished.
Under this new regulation, the Exeter Dance Festival is the data controller and can be contacted by ringing or emailing Sue Bonnett or Kathryn Tayler. In order to run the organisation, we hold names, addresses, email contact details and telephone numbers. This information is held securely on the personal computers of the relevant secretaries and is password protected.
The records we have are used only for the general administration of the Festival and no third party will be given access to any information we hold without prior consent.
