You have legal rights to access the personal data that we hold about you and to control how we use it which are also explained.
You can read, print and save this whole policy or click on the links below to see specific information about:
personal data that you provide to us. There are lots of ways in which you may share your personal data with us, for example, you may contact us via the website, by telephone, post or social media or in person in connection with hiring one of our hosts for your event, or in connection with a previous or upcoming booking, or with a general enquiry. The personal data that you provide to us may include your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, name of your business and your job title. If you make a booking we may also request your bank details, credit card information, VAT number and website address.

personal data that we receive from third parties. When we work with other businesses or use sub-contractors these parties may collect personal data about you which they will share with us.

When we need your consent to use your personal data
Whilst we always want you to be aware of how we are using your personal data, this does not necessarily mean that we are required to ask for your consent before we can use it. In the day to day running of our business we may use your personal data without asking for your consent because:
we are entering into and carrying out our obligations under a contract with you
we need to use your personal data for our own legitimate purposes (such as the administration and management of our business and the improvement of our services) and our doing so will not interfere with your privacy rights
In exceptional circumstances we may wish to use your personal data for a different purpose which does require your consent. In these circumstances we will contact you to explain how we wish to use your data and to ask for your consent. You are not required to give consent just because we ask for it. If you do give consent you can change your mind and withdraw it at a later date.
You are not under a legal obligation to provide us with any of your personal data but please note that if you elect not to provide us with your personal data we may be unable to provide our services to you or to respond to your query.
Your rights to know what personal data we hold and to control how we use it
You have a legal right to know what personal data we hold about you – this is called the right of subject access. You can exercise this right by sending us a written request at any time.

We share your data with the following people in the day to day running our business:
the host(s) who we provide for your event
any other business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors we work with to provide you with goods or services that you have requested from us
analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site
We may also share your personal information with third parties on a one-off basis, for example, if:
we sell or buy any business or assets (including our own), in which case we will disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets
How we keep your personal data safe
We take every care to ensure that your personal data is kept secure. The security measures we take include:
only storing your personal data on our secure servers
restricting access to personal data that we hold
keeping paper records to a minimum and ensuring that those we do have are stored in locked filing cabinets on our office premises
maintaining up to date firewalls and anti-virus software to minimise the risk of unauthorised access to our systems
enforcing a strict policy on the use of mobile devices and out of office working
Unfortunately, sending 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 personal data sent to our website; you send us personal data at your own risk. Once we have received your personal data, we will use strict procedures and security features (some of which are described above) to try to prevent unauthorised access.
How we use your personal data for marketing
We will add your details to our marketing database if:
you make an enquiry about our services and have opted in to receiving marketing communications from us

We may send you marketing communications by email, telephone, text message or post.
You can ask us to only send you marketing communications by particular methods (for example, you may be happy to receive emails from us but not telephone calls) or you may ask us not to send you any marketing communications at all.
We may ask you to indicate your marketing preferences when you first register an account on our website. You can check and update your current marketing preferences at any time by calling or emailing us using the details set out in the Who we are and how you can contact us section above.
