When you request information from Motionhouse, sign up to any of our services or buy things from us, we obtain information about you. This statement explains how we look after that information and what we do with it.
What information we hold
This can include any of the following, but is restricted to what you share with us:
- Your name
- Postal address
- Telephone number
- Email address
We have a legal duty under the Data Protection Act to prevent your information falling into the wrong hands. We try to ensure that the information we hold is accurate, up to date, adequate and relevant. Please let us know of any changes or discrepancies so we can update your information.
Normally the only information we hold comes directly from you. Whenever we collect information from you, we will make it clear which information is required in order to provide you with the information, service or goods you need. You do not have to provide us with any additional information unless you choose to.
How we store your information
We store your information securely on our computer system, we restrict access to those who have a need to know, and we train our staff in handling the information securely. The information you provide will be kept confidential and will be used to support your relationship with Motionhouse. It will not be shared with any third party without your consent, unless required by law.
How we use your information
We will use your data to tell you about our activities by email – either because you have signed up to receive this information, or because we think you will be interested in hearing about what we do in your professional capacity (e.g. you work in the arts, have worked with us before or might be interested in using some of our services such as booking our work, booking our education workshops, etc.) . Sometimes we might also contact you about the services we provide, which may include information on activities, touring, ways to support Motionhouse, fundraising campaigns, employment opportunities, training and classes. You have the right to ask us not to contact you in this way. We will always provide a clear method for you to opt out. You can also contact us directly at any time to tell us not to send you any future marketing material.
From time to time we may use the information we hold about you for analysis and research purposes (this might include, for instance, postcode mapping or future fundraising potential, etc.) This assists with strategic planning, helping us to make better business decisions and supporting our future growth as a company.
How long we keep your information
We will retain your data for a period of 5 years unless you tell us that you wish to be removed from our system before this. We will then contact you offering you the opportunity to unsubscribe if you are no longer interested. We have chosen a period of 5 years because as a touring company, it may be some time before we return to the area you live in and we want to let you know when we will be returning. If you are applying for a job with us, we will keep your information for a reasonable period relating to the recruitment process, after which your information will be removed from our system.
If you don’t want to hear from us
You always have an option to unsubscribe from all marketing emails via a link on our emails. Or you can also change any of your contact preferences and interests at any time by emailing [email protected].
Sharing your information with others
Very occasionally we carry out a joint mailing with carefully selected other organisations, in order to tell you about products and services we think you might be interested in. Again, you have the right to opt out of this.
We understand the importance of maintaining and protecting your privacy and will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to anyone.
Finding out what information we hold about you
You have the right to obtain a copy of all the information we hold about you (apart from a very few things which we may be obliged to withhold because they concern other people as well as you). To obtain a copy, either ask for an application form to be sent to you, or write to [email protected]. We aim to reply as promptly as we can and, in any case, within the legal maximum of 1 month.
