At The Fun Palaces Campaign we are committed to protecting your privacy. When you interact with us by phone, mail, in person or online, we sometimes receive personal information about you. This page, together with our website terms and conditions, tells you about how we collect, use and store your personal information.
How do we collect information about you?
We may collect information about you whenever you interact with us. For example, when you register as a Fun Palace, donate to us, ask about our activities, or otherwise give us any other personal information.
Who is collecting the information?
When you are on the Fun Palaces website and are asked for personal information by us you are sharing that information with The Fun Palaces Campaign team alone, for the purposes of the successful running of the event. Unless it is specifically stated otherwise – as in during the registration process, where there is an opt-out – we will not pass your name or email address to third parties, including organisations and companies that are partnering with or supporting us.
What information do we collect and how do we use it?
The Fun Palaces Campaign collects information in a variety of ways from different parts of the website. Some information is gathered when you register. During registration to organise a Fun Palace, we ask for your name, email address, contact telephone number and address. At this point we also ask you to fill in an Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form – this is entirely at your discretion and our interest in this information is for monitoring purposes only.
As stated at the point of registration, if you register to organise a Fun Palace you agree to receive emails from The Fun Palaces Campaign. We will email people who have registered on an ongoing basis, so that the team can help with the successful running of Fun Palaces events nationwide. However, if you do not wish to receive future mailings, you can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link included on all communications.
The Fun Palaces Campaign also occasionally asks users to complete surveys for research purposes. If you would like to opt out of receiving these emails at any time or report misuse please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When/if you contact The Fun Palaces Campaign, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
You can use our website anonymously without giving us any information and we won’t know who you are.
If you visit our site anonymously, we may still record information about
- the areas of the website you visit
- the amount of time you spend on the site
- whether you are new to the site, or have visited it before
- how you came to our website – for example, through an email link or a search engine
- the type of computer, browser, network location and internet connection you use.
