Why do we collect and use personal data?
We collect data to run the Festival; primarily, this involves the distribution of the syllabus, the allocation of entrants to their chosen classes, communication with entrants in the lead up to the Festival, and the acceptance of payments. We do not collect ‘sensitive data’ unless there is a legitimate reason, e.g. where a participant may need support to enter the Festival.
We also hold data in respect of the Trustees, as required by the Charity Commission, as well as data for any person claiming expenses, e.g. adjudicators or accompanists. We do not hold data for any other purpose nor do we hold data that is not necessary for us to fulfil our obligations.
