Who we share your data with
We do not share your data with thirrd parties, however we do upload your personal details to other services;
We transfer your all booking related information (Name, Email, Mobile, Booking Reference number, Package, Price, Amount Paid, Attendees etc) to a password protected Google Drive spreadsheet in order to manage payments on your booking and send you important updates about any bookings you have made on this website. We need to transfer enough information to send you mail merged updates unique to the package you have booked. Three key members of staff will have access to this data. You can view the Google GDPR compliance policy here. These details will be held in the google drive spreadsheet for up to 1 year after the event, especially where an event takes place annually, in order to offer you tailored products and discounts based on previous purchases. Details will be deleted should you wish to opt out of being a member of this website.
2. Bulk SMS
1 week before an event we use BulkSMS in order to send you important updates during the event. We do not transfer your details to their database and only run mailmerged one off text messages using data from our database on Google Drive
How long we retain your data
We will store data of all your bookings made for as long as you are a member of this website. As soon as you opt out of being a member we will remove your account and all data related to your account. Once removed this data will be unrecoverable.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
