How do we collect information from you?

We obtain information about you when you contact us for information about our activity eg to sign up to our newsletter, to make a donation or book a place on a workshop or event. We may also collect information from you with your agreement when you take part in our community programmes or events. This will be collected as a part of evaluation purposes and as such we will have a contract with you outlining the nature of participation and evaluation processes.

We collect financial information of yours only when we are engaging you as a supplier or artist. Any payments made by you for our events or workshops are processed through a third party payment processor ( We do not harness any financial data through eventbrite.

What type of information is collected from you?

The personal information we collect might include your name, address, email address and age. If you make a donation online or purchase a ticket from us, your card information is not held by us, it is collected by our third party payment processors, who specialise in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions eg Eventbrite.

How is your information used?

We may use your information to;

• send you communications which you have requested and that may be of interest to you: these may include information about activities, projects, campaigns or other fundraising
• to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into by you and us – this can be for example if you are taking part in a dance and health project or a professional development workshop
• process orders that you have submitted
• seek your views or comments on the services we provide
• notify you of changes to our services
• process a grant or job application
• process a donation that you have made.

We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations (for example the collection of Gift Aid or for HR purposes). We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us, or until you request to stop receiving information from us.

Who has access to your information?

We will never sell or rent your information to third parties.
We will never share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf

We may pass your information to our third party providers for the purposes of shared projects and providing services to you on our behalf (eg Local Giving for fundraising or Mailchimp to send you mailings). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond the Dance in Devon core service network unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, for safeguarding purposes, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

Third Party Associates we work in association with

We occasionally work closely with third party associates to deliver our projects (eg NHS or other arts organisations). If you take part in one of our collaborative projects with multiple partners, the relevant third party may use your details to provide you with information and carry out their obligations arising from any contracts you have entered into with them. If they will be acting as a data controller of your information we advise you to also read their Privacy Policy. These third party partners will share your information with us which we will use in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This will always be outlined at the outset of your engagement with the project.

Your choices

You have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from us. If you are already signed up to our mailing list but change your mind about wanting to receive direct communications from us about the dance work we do for communities in Devon, then you can unsubscribe at any time. We will only send you information if you have requested it or there is legitimate interest in our activity and services eg you have attended an artist talk and we would like to send you booking information for our next artist talk.

How you can access and update your information

The accuracy of your information is important to us. We’re working on ways to make it easier for you to review and correct the information that we hold about you. In the meantime, if you change email address, or any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please email us at: or write to us at: Dance in Devon, Dartington SPACE, Totnes, Devon, TQ9 6EN.

You have the right to ask for a copy of the information Dance in Devon holds about you (we will charge £10 for information requests to cover our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you).


When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information. We will take reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of information you give us.

Communications in connection with our activities will usually be sent by e-mail. E-mail, unless encrypted, is not a fully secure means of communication.
