In line with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) we are providing advice on how we use your information that we have stored through our databases and membership information records.
This document is correct as at May 2018
1. Keeping the information we hold up to date
It’s important that you let us know if there are any changes to your situation, contact or personal details. This is so that we can manage and protect your information, and communicate with you safely and quickly (for example, if we had to cancel an event you had booked on).
Please let us know straight away if your details change:. We will contact you using the most recent address, email or phone number you’ve given us. If you don’t tell us promptly about a change in your details, you may not receive information that could be important – or it could fall into the wrong hands.
2. How we use your information
We may use any information you give us about yourself and others to:
▪ Prevent and detect crime
▪ Develop, test and improve our products and services
▪ Conduct market research and product analysis
▪ Provide you with marketing material when we have your permission to do so
▪ Run events and promotional activities
We treat all information we hold about you as private and confidential. We will not reveal any personal details or details concerning your membership to anyone not connected with Carters Steam Fair, unless:
▪ You ask us to reveal the information, or we have your permission to do so
▪ We are required or permitted to do so by law
▪ It is required by law enforcement, fraud prevention or credit reference agencies
▪ There is a duty to the public to reveal the information, eg to other government bodies, tax authorities or regulatory bodies
These technologies enable you to navigate between web pages efficiently and to complete online application forms or surveys.
In emails (including our Mailchimp and other regular communications) they help us to understand whether you have opened the email and how you have interacted with it.
From time to time we may change the way we use customer information. Where we believe that our contacts may not reasonably expect such a change we will let you know by email.
If you do not object to the change within 60 days of us letting you know, we will consider you to have agreed to that change.
We would like to keep you up to date with information about Carters Steam Fair activities, products and services which we think might interest you.
If you do not want to receive this information, you can contact us using the details at the end of this document. You can also unsubscribe on our mailing lists and e-bulletins.
