On 25th May 2018 a new EU Regulation came into force concerning how an individual’s personal data is collected, accessed, processed and managed. If you provide information when you completed our online forms we need to advise you what we hold, who is responsible and what we do with this information.

Who we are

Our website address is:

When you contact us

The information you provide (e.g. personal information such as name, email address, phone number) will be processed and stored to enable us to contact you and respond to your correspondence, provide information and/or access our activities.

Information Security

Thame Art Crawl has a duty to ensure the security of personal data. We make sure that your information is protected from unauthorised access or unauthorised disclosure. This is done through normal IT Security and password protection.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We respect your privacy and do not collect identifiable information.  Data (like your email address) entered to receive updates on our programmes is held securely and is never shared to any third party except where absolutely necessary in conformance with the law.

How long we retain your data

We will only keep your data for the purpose it was collected for and only for as long as is necessary. 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.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
