East Grinstead Music & Arts Festival

Privacy, Personal Data and GDPR

East Grinstead Music & Arts Festival (EGMAF) is a member of the British and International Federation of Festivals (federationoffestivals.org.uk) and is registered with the Charity Commission (Charity Number 281201). It is run by volunteers. The festival takes place at Chequer Mead Community Arts Centre, De La Warr Rd, East Grinstead RH19 3BS (chequermead.org.uk).

EGMAF collects information about you when you apply to enter our festival, if you volunter as a steward or committee member, or if you are engaged as an adjudicator. We ask only for such information as is necessary in order to administer the festival. We do not collect sensitive personal data unless there is a legitimate reason, for example where an entrant requires particular support in order to participate.

Access to all data is restricted to the personnel who administer the festival. EGMAF does not pass on collected data to any third party unless required to do so by law or if it is necessary in order to fulfil the festival’s constitutional purpose. It should be noted that in the printed festival programme only the entrant’s name, age range and the name of their school or association will appear.

Privacy is extremely important and we do our utmost to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into force in May 2018. To this end we require your active consent to our use of your data and so our entry forms are now prefaced by an opt-in clause which must be agreed to (signed and dated) before an entry can be accepted.

Participants may contact us at any time to request sight of, an update to, or the complete removal of their data. EGMAF does not maintain a mailing list and does not send bulk emails.
