WHERE YOUR INFORMATION IS STORED

Your information will be held at our offices and our website is hosted by Squarespace.  Where your information is transferred to countries outside the UK (e.g. to Squarespace servers in the US) it will always be done in compliance with Data Protection Laws to ensure that it is adequately protected (e.g. using the EU-US or Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks).

HOW WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION SAFE

We will safeguard your information in our custody.  We have developed and will maintain adequate security procedures to safeguard personal information against loss, theft, copying, and unauthorised disclosure, use or modification. Access to personal information is restricted to employees and authorised individuals and companies who need it to perform their work.  We also regularly review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorised access to systems.

RETENTION OF RECORDS

We will do our best not to keep your personal information for longer than necessary to facilitate your attendance at our workshops and ongoing relationship, other than as required by law.  We will regularly review the information that we hold and delete unnecessary information from our systems. 

Unless you request otherwise, we may retain information that will make providing our services to you more convenient and safer, such as your previous bookings, but you have the right to ask us to delete any information that we hold about you – see the Your Rights section below. 

When your personal information is no longer required, it will be destroyed either by shredding or other approved destruction methods to prevent unauthorised parties from gaining access to the information during and after the process.

YOUR RIGHTS

You have several rights as a data subject as summarised below:

·       Access: You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether your personal information is being processed by us and, if it is, to access your information and details of how we process it, as long as this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others. 

·       Rectification:  We will rectify any errors in the personal information we hold on request.

·       Erasure:  You may ask us to erase your personal information from our systems in the following situations:

o   The information is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was collected;

o   You withdraw your consent on which the processing is based and where there is no other legal ground for the processing;

o   You object to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing;

o   The information has been unlawfully processed;

o   The information has to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject.

·       Right to restrict processing:  You have the right to restrict our processing on specified grounds.

·       Notification:  Where you have asked us to rectify, erase or restrict processing of your information, we shall communicate the same to each recipient to whom your information has been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort, in which case we shall let you know. 

·       Data portability: You have the right in specific circumstances where processing is based on consent to receive your information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit the information to another controller without hindrance, provided that our processing is carried out by automated means.

·       Right to object:  In certain circumstances you have the right to object to our processing of your information, including in relation to profiling, direct marketing or scientific or historical research purposes.

·       Right to complain to a supervisory authority: You are entitled to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) at www.ico.org.uk in relation to our use of your personal data.

You also have the right to object to automated decision-making, including profiling, but we do not use your information for these purposes.

HOW TO EXERCISE YOUR RIGHTS

To exercise any of your other data subject rights, please contact us at info@dankennedyworkshops.com.

You may request a copy of information undergoing processing, subject to evidence of your identity (normally a certified copy of your passport plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address).  The first copy shall be provided without charge, but reasonable administration fees shall be charged for additional or subsequent copies.

We shall respond to your requests without undue delay and in any event within one month unless we need to extend such period by up to two further months in specific circumstances.  Please note that if you delete or restrict your account or required information, this may prevent you from making full use of our services or website.

WHAT HAPPENS IF A DATA BREACH OCCURS

Whilst we endeavour to keep your personal information safe, we have an internal investigation procedure in case of data protection security breaches.

In the event of data theft, we may suspend access to our servers, emails and online systems and take other urgent steps to prevent further unauthorised access to information.

If we believe that our data systems have been compromised, we will report the issue to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) at www.ico.org.uk.

We will notify you without delay if we believe a data breach is likely to result in a significant risk to your rights and freedoms.  Any notification will describe in clear and plain language the nature of the personal data breach and contain all required information.
