At Scaffold, we value your privacy the way we do our own. We will only hold the minimal amount of personal data needed to conduct our work – in most cases this will be an email address and name – and we will never share that with anyone else, for any reason.
As part of the registration process for our newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.
We may share anonymised personal information with other organisations, particularly Arts Council England, who use this to analyse our work, and to support our case when we apply for public funding.
When you contact us, book a workshop, or sign up for the mailing list, we will collect your email address and name. These will be securely stored and never shared with outside parties. We will only use this data to send newsletters, or to contact you with specific information about a service you have requested (for example, extra information about a workshop you have booked for).
We may occasionally request that participants to workshops or other aspects of our work complete an Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form. The data collected here is anonymised, and only used to help us improve our services, such as when applying for funding, or helping us guide our diversity strategy.
