Privacy policy

For the: Festival Collection Limited; Trading as South Central Festival.

Last updated: 6th February 2019 

Approved by: Group Marketing Manager  

Introduction 

Festival Collection Limited, (‘we’) is a Limited organisation whose registered address is  PO Box 748, Fareham, Hampshire PO14.

These addresses are securely locked and alarmed when not occupied. 

Festival Collection Limited needs to gather and use certain information about individuals.

These can include customers, suppliers, business contacts, employees and other people the organisation has a relationship with or may need to contact. 

This policy describes how this personal data must be collected, handled and stored

to meet the company’s data protection standards — and to comply with the law 

Why this policy exists;

This data protection policy ensures Festival Collection Limited:

  • Complies with data protection law and follow good practice

  • Protects the rights of staff, customers and partners

  • Is open about how it stores and processes individuals’ data

  • Protects itself from the risks of a data breach

 

Data Protection Law

The Data Protection Act 1998 describes how organisations — including [Festival Collection Limited ]— must collect, handle and store personal information.

These rules apply regardless of whether data is stored electronically, on paper or on other materials.

To comply with the law, personal information must be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed unlawfully.

The Data Protection Act is underpinned by eight important principles. These say that personal data must:

  1. Be processed fairly and lawfully

  2. Be obtained only for specific, lawful purposes

  3. Be adequate, relevant and not excessive

  4. Be accurate and kept up to date

  5. Not be held for any longer than necessary

  6. Processed in accordance with the rights of data subjects

  7. Be protected in appropriate ways

  8. Not be transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA), unless that country or territory also ensures an adequate level of protection

 

People, Risks and Responsibilities

Policy Scope

This policy applies to:

  • The head office of Festival Collection Limited 

  • All branches of Festival Collection Limited including and not limited to South Central Festival

  • All staff and volunteers of Festival Collection Limited 

  • All contractors, suppliers and other people working on behalf of Festival Collection Limited.

It applies to all data that the company holds relating to identifiable individuals, even if that information technically falls outside of the Data Protection Act 1998. This can include:

  • Names of Individuals

  • Postal Addresses

  • Email Addresses

  • Telephone Numbers

  • Any other information relating to individuals

 

Data Protection Risks

This policy helps to protect Festival Collection Limited from some very real data security risks, including:

  • Breaches of confidentiality. 

For instance, information being given out inappropriately.

  • Failing to offer choice. 

For instance, all individuals should be free to choose how the company uses data relating to them.

  • Reputational damage. 

For instance, the company could suffer if hackers successfully gained access to sensitive data.

 

Responsibilities

Everyone who works or is a potential contractor for or with Festival Collection Limited has some responsibility for ensuring data is collected, stored and handled appropriately.

Each team that handles personal data must ensure that it is handled and processed in line with this policy and data protection principles.

However, these people have key areas of responsibility:

  • The Board of Directors is ultimately responsible for ensuring that Festival Collection Limited meets its legal obligations.

 

The [Data Protection Officer], Elliott Dalton (ED) is responsible for:

  • Keeping the board updated about data protection responsibilities, risks and issues.

  • Reviewing all data protection procedures and related policies, in line with an agreed schedule.

  • Arranging data protection training and advice for the people covered by this policy.

  • Handling data protection questions from staff and anyone else covered by this policy.

  • Dealing with requests from individuals to see the data Festival Collection Limited holds about them (also called ‘subject access requests’).

  • Checking and approving any contracts or agreements with third parties that may handle 
the company’s sensitive data.

The [IT Manager], Elliott Dalton, is responsible for:

  • Ensuring all systems, services and equipment used for storing data meet acceptable security standards.

  • Performing regular checks and scans to ensure security hardware and software is functioning properly.

  • Evaluating any third-party services the company is considering using to store or process data. For instance, cloud computing services.

  • The [Marketing Manager], Elliot Dalton, is responsible for:

  • Approving any data protection statements attached to communications such as emails and letters.

  • Addressing any data protection queries from journalists or media outlets such as newspapers.

  • Where necessary, working with other staff to ensure marketing initiatives abide by data protection principles.

 

General staff guidelines

  • The only people able to access data covered by this policy should be those who need it for their work.

  • Data should not be shared informally. When access to confidential information is required, employees can request it from their line managers.

  • ED will provide training to all employees to help them understand their responsibilities when handling data.

  • Employees should keep all data secure, by taking sensible precautions and following the guidelines below.

  • In particular, strong passwords must be used and they should never be shared.

  • Personal data should not be disclosed to unauthorised people, either within the company or externally.

  • Data should be regularly reviewed and updated if it is found to be out of date. If no longer required, it should be deleted and disposed of.

  • Employees should request help from their line manager or the data protection officer if they are unsure about any aspect of data protection.

 

Data Storage

These rules describe how and where data should be safely stored. Questions about storing data safely can be directed to the IT manager or data controller.

When data is stored on paper, it should be kept in a secure place where unauthorised people cannot see it.

These guidelines also apply to data that is usually stored electronically but has been printed out for some reason:

  • When not required, the paper or files should be kept in a locked drawer or filing cabinet.

  • Employees should make sure paper and printouts are not left where unauthorised people could see them, like on a printer.

  • Data printouts should be shredded and disposed of securely when no longer required.

  • When data is stored electronically, it must be protected from unauthorised access, accidental deletion and malicious hacking attempts:

  • Data should be protected by strong passwords that are changed regularly and never shared between employees.

  • If data is stored on removable media (like a CD or DVD), these should be kept locked away securely when not being used.

  • Data should only be stored on designated drives and servers, and should only be uploaded to an approved cloud computing services.

  • Servers containing personal data should be sited in a secure location, away from general office space.

  • Data should be backed up frequently. Those backups should be tested regularly, in line with the company’s standard backup procedures.

  • Data should never be saved directly to laptops or other mobile devices like tablets or smart phones.

  • All servers and computers containing data should be protected by approved security software and a firewall.

 

Data Use

Personal data is of no value to Festival Collection Limited unless the business can make use of it. However, it is when personal data is accessed and used that it can be at the greatest risk of loss, corruption or theft:

  • When working with personal data, employees should ensure the screens of their computers are always locked when left unattended.

  • Personal data should not be shared informally. In particular, it should never be sent by email, as this form of communication is not secure.

  • Data must be encrypted before being transferred electronically. The IT manager can explain how to send data to authorised external contacts.

  • Personal data should never be transferred outside of the European Economic Area.

  • Employees should not save copies of personal data to their own computers.

  • Always access and update the central copy of any data.

 

Data Accuracy

The law requires Festival Collection Limited to take reasonable steps to ensure data is kept accurate and up to date. 

  • The more important it is that the personal data is accurate, the greater the effort Festival Collection Limited should put into ensuring its accuracy.

  • It is the responsibility of all employees who work with data to take reasonable steps to ensure it is kept as accurate and up to date as possible.

  • Data will be held in as few places as necessary. Staff should not create any unnecessary additional data sets.

  • Staff should take every opportunity to ensure data is updated. For instance, by confirming a customer’s details when they call.

  • Festival Collection Limited will make it easy for data subjects to update the information Festival Collection Limited holds about them. For instance, via the company website.

  • Data should be updated as inaccuracies are discovered. For instance, if a customer can no longer be reached on their stored telephone number, it should be removed from the database.

  • It is the marketing manager’s responsibility to ensure marketing databases are checked against industry suppression files every six months.

Subject Access Requests

All individuals who are the subject of personal data held by Festival Collection Limited  are entitled to:

  • Ask what information the company holds about them and why.

  • Ask how to gain access to it.

  • Be informed how to keep it up to date.

  • Be informed how the company is meeting its data protection obligations.

If an individual contacts the company requesting this information, this is called a subject access request.

Subject access requests from individuals should be made by email, addressed to the data controller at info@livetourpromotions.co.uk . The data controller can supply a standard request form, although individuals do not have to use this.

Individuals will be charged £10 per subject access request. The data controller will aim to provide the relevant data within 14 days.

The data controller will always verify the identity of anyone making a subject access request before handing over any information.

 

Providing Information

 Festival Collection Limited aims to ensure that individuals are aware that their data is being processed, and that they understand:

  • How the data is being used

  • How to exercise their rights

To these ends, the company has a privacy statement, setting out how data relating to 
individuals is used by the company is available on this website and by contacting Festival Collections Limited on the details above.

All of the above are data processors to Festival Collection Limited as data controller. We have GDPR compliant processor contracts in place with all of the above named parties. All processors undertake to keep the data within the EEA or are compliant and certified under the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks. 

Policy Statement

1.     Festival Collection Limited intends to comply with GDPR or the same as subsequently enacted into UK domestic law at Brexit. 

2.     We will therefore: 

  1. Only process as much personal data as is necessary for the services we supply.

  2. Only hold such data for so long as necessary for those purposes. In this connection we have decided that ten years following the last contact with an individual is usually an appropriate period to hold data covering the legal limitation period (six years) and a moderate margin. As in most cases this is only archived data is not sensitive, not dangerous and will not be used. there will be little risk to data subjects.  

  3. Only process such data on grounds for lawful processing provided within GDPR Article 6. 

  4. Send or otherwise provide appropriate notices (GDPR Articles 13 and 14) to those whose personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”) is processed by us including our employees, and individuals or individuals within partners who supply us with goods or services. We will also send such notices to individuals within organisations, to whom generic marketing communications (eg newsletters) are sent. 

  • Not engage in direct marketing to clients or prospects otherwise than in accordance with the relevant legislation and guidance from the ICO. 

  • Utilise appropriate organisational and technical measures to ensure that Personal Data processed by us is kept secure. 

  • Where we use third party data processors, we will choose them carefully with a view to their data security and compliance with GDPR and have GDPR compliant contracts with them. 

  • Not transfer Personal Data (which includes giving third parties access to it within our IT system) to recipients located outside the European Economic Area and the UK without confirmation from our Data Protection Officer that such transfer is lawful. 

  • Update this document from time to time so that it remains an accurate record of our data processing activities and policies.

3.     We conclude that where we hold and process such personal data for the purposes of direct marketing to those individuals’ employers we should, unless guidance from the ICO says otherwise, either: 

1.     obtain consent to that direct marketing from the individuals and send the notices required by Articles 13 and 14 to the individuals; or 

2.     be satisfied that we have a legitimate interest in holding that Personal Data and using it for that purpose.

  • We hold GDPR compliant contracts with all data processors. 
      

6.     Consent 

We do not engage in direct marketing to individuals except in their capacity as a member of our Company or as a conduit for our company. 

Following consultation with the ICO and a review of the appropriate legislation, we have concluded that as our customers have purchased through Eventbrite, Fatsoma and other ticket sales platforms we do not need consent in communicating through digital means with our customers about our related products and services. We believe that as a customer there is a legitimate interest in receiving this information which is noted as a lawful reason for processing data in Recital 47. In all communications there is an opt-out and the customer will have received an article 13 or 14 notice prior to receiving any communications at all. 

We will keep the proposed replacement of The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 and guidance from the ICO under review. 

We are aware that consent under GDPR must be freely given, specific, informed and unambiguously given by a statement or a clear affirmative action and that we have to keep a record of each consent obtained for as long as we are using it. We do not currently believe that any of our processing of Personal Data, except for the sending of the commercial marketing, requires data subject consent. 

7.     Legitimate Interests 

Recital 47 of the GDPR reads: “The legitimate interests of a controller, including those of a controller to which the personal data may be disclosed, or of a third party, may provide a legal basis for processing, provided that the interests or the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overriding, taking into consideration the reasonable expectations of data subjects based on their relationship with the controller.” 

We rely on legitimate interest as justifying much of our processing of Personal Data as we have assessed that the majority of our processing activity would be in the reasonable expectations of those we process data about. Our activities reliant on legitimate interest are  as follows: 

 

  • Suppliers, and partners: Our suppliers and partners are not usually individuals so here we are dealing with the identifiable employees of our suppliers and clients who require us to deal with such individuals or self employed individuals. We require their personal data (email, office address, telephone numbers) to enable us to contact them in the context of their job. If an employee leaves a client or supplier, we remove their details from the CRM and other systems (or we would be communicating with the wrong person). They expect that we will hold their contact details for this purpose. 

  • Customers: When individuals purchase products or utilise services through our trading company we have access to process this data to administer our contracted duties and send them carefully selected information about our products and services.  

  • Affiliated Brands: We may AT time work with OR own ourselves, affiliated brands that maybe of interest to existing customers. Customers may from time to time receive information about these brands we work alongside with.  

In all the above cases we believe that we have a legitimate interest in carrying out that processing and that the processing has no significant risk to the rights and freedoms of the individuals concerned. 

8.     Notices 

As noted elsewhere we do not believe that GDPR should be interpreted as requiring an Article 13 or Article 14 notice to be sent to every data subject whose personal data we are processing. We do believe that such notices should be sent to:  

  • Suppliers and clients once engaged with Festival Collection Limited 

10.  Processors 

We have identified the following parties as data processors:  

  • Google - In the provision of One Drive applications 

  • Xero - In the provision of accounting software 

  • Eventbrite - In the provision of ticketing services 

  • Festicket - In the provision of ticketing services 

  • Fatsoma - In the provision of ticketing services 

  • Mailchimp - In the provision of Email Marketing Services

  • Shopify - In the provision of Email & Sales Marketing Services

The above parties either have a direct contract using Festival Collection Limited model contract or through GDPR compliant terms and conditions of use of service.  

 

11.  Communication & Data Policy

A customers privacy and right to not be spammed will always take priority over marketing preferences and targeted mailers.

Festival Collection Limited  will never compromise our privacy promise in return for up-front monetary compensation.

  • They have signed up with one of our ticketing agents and follow the specific brand.
