We use your information in accordance with all applicable laws concerning the protection of personal information. This policy explains:

  • Information collection

  • How your information is used

  • Who we share your information with

  • How we maintain your information

  • Websites

    If you have any queries about this policy, please contact: dataprotectionofficer@mayk.org.uk

Information collection

We collect information in a number of ways:

Information you give us

For example, when you register to receive our newsletter, we’ll store the personal information you give us such as your name and email address. Or, when you register to become a friend, we store personal information you give us such as name, address, email address.

Information about your interactions with us

For example, when you visit our website, we collect information about how you interact with our content. When we send you a mailing we store a record of this, and in the case of emails we keep a record of which ones you have opened and which links you have clicked on.

Information from third parties

We occasionally receive information about you from third parties. For example, we might receive information about you from a third-party box office provider if you have given consent.

Sensitive personal data

Data Protection law recognises that certain categories of personal information are more sensitive such as health information, race, religious beliefs and political opinions. We do not usually collect this type of information unless there is a clear reason for doing so.

Legal basis

There are three bases under which we may process your data:

Contract purposes

When you make a purchase from us, you are entering into a contract with us. In order to perform this contract we need to process and store your data. For example we may need to contact you by email or telephone in the case of problems with your payment or direct debit.

Legitimate business interests

In certain situations we collect and process your personal information for purposes that are in our legitimate organisational interests. However we only do this if there is no overriding prejudice to you by using your personal information in this way. We describe below all situations where we may use this basis for processing.

With your explicit consent

For any situations where the two bases above are not appropriate, we will instead ask for your explicit consent before using your personal information in that specific situation.

How Your Information is used

Email Marketing communications

We use our legitimate business interest as the legal basis for communications by email. In the case of email, we will provide you with an option to unsubscribe in every email that we send you, or alternatively you can use the contact details at the end of this policy.

Other processing activities

In addition to marketing communications, we also process personal information in the following ways that are within our legitimate organisational interests or for contract purposes:

  • In order to improve our website we may analyse information about how you use it and the content and ads that you interact with;

  • In order to collect payments from donors.

We will always keep your rights and interests at the forefront to ensure they are not overridden by our own interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. You have the right to object to any of this processing at any time. If you wish to do this, please use the contact details at the end of this policy. Please bear in mind that if you object this may affect our ability to carry out tasks above that are for your benefit.

Who do we share your information with?

We do not share your information with anyone.

Maintaining your personal information

We store your personal email information for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which it was collected. We will provide you with an option to unsubscribe in every email that we send you, or you can use the contact details at the end of this policy.

Security of your personal information

We will put in place appropriate safeguards (both in terms of our procedures and the technology we use) to keep your personal information as secure as possible.

Your rights to your personal information

You have a right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold about you and to have any inaccuracies in this data corrected. Please use the contact details at the end of this policy if you would like to exercise this right.
