This assists with reporting to funders and strategic planning, helping us to make better business decisions. Your personal data is never used by them to contact you, nor passed or sold on to any other agencies or companies, and we have agreements in place to ensure this.

We use Counting What Counts as our Processor to power selected evaluations each year. We have signed a legally binding agreement with Arts Council England confirming CWC will only collect and store information about you according to our instructions, based on how we use their self-serve platform. CWC has taken steps to minimise the amount of personal data it can see or access when processing on our behalf and to make sure it’s appropriately secured. See the CWC Privacy Policy.

How we store your data

Your personal data will be securely held and processed on the Rambert systems or systems managed by suppliers on behalf of Rambert. We maintain a customer relationship management (CRM) system to hold contact details and a record of your interactions with us such as merchandise purchases, queries, complaints, and attendance at events etc. Where possible we aim to keep a single record for each donor/customer.

We will always seek to hold your data securely. Access to donor/customer information is strictly controlled and can only be accessed by people who need it in order to do their job. Certain data, for example sensitive information, is additionally controlled and is only made visible to members of staff who have a reason to work with it.

If you have provided credit card details, these will only be used for the purpose of handling an individual booking or order and will not be stored.

Any payment transactions will be encrypted.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

We may need to disclose your details if required to by the police, regulatory bodies, or legal advisors.

We will only ever share your data in other circumstances if we have your explicit and informed consent as detailed above.

All information received by us is retrieved using secure technology. In order to provide a safe and secure environment for your personal information we use up to date technology with a view to protecting that information against loss, misuse, or unauthorised alteration.

Data is held by us for as long as is legally or practically necessary for our business. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. You can find out more about our retention policy by contacting info[ATSIGN]rambert.org.uk

We will retain personal data of event attendees, donors and those who purchase merchandise from us, for two years without activity before anonymising it.

Once that necessity is past, we have a regular programme of data anonymisation. This ensures that your data is not held indefinitely on our systems.
