Here at The Pretty Events co. We believe your right to your privacy is indisputable. In this statement we will clearly outline why we collect data, how we use it and most importantly how it is stored.
Who is collecting the data and what information is being collected?
Our data is collected from a few sources. The first being wedding fairs.
If you’ve attended a wedding fair, upon entry they may ask you to fill in a form consisting of details all about your impending nuptials. Please remember you are under no obligation to give these details over, however if you choose to, these details are then collated into a database that is given to all suppliers who attend that particular fair.
If your information is relevant to our services we may contact you to inform you of any particular offers or promotions we have or even just generally to introduce ourselves if we didn’t manage to that day.
We may also take your details on our stand if you’ve asked for a quote for a particular service or product.
The second source of collecting would be our online platforms (social media) such as Facebook or Instagram.
These platforms help us to see who “likes” what and what times of day our page is interacted with the most. Whilst not giving away personal details to us, it still allows us to make the most of our page and helps us to decide what you, the public enjoy seeing from us the most.
Lastly, Our webpage. When you first land on our website, you should have been greeted by a pop up which will ask you whether you agree or disagree to us using “cookies”. If you accept, our server will collect information about your stay on the site. The information doesn’t tell us who the information I associated with, its purely to help us better understand what we can do better.
How will this data be stored and how long for?
Information collected from fairs or events are collated into a database which are then sent to us via email. These databases are downloaded and the email deleted. Each database requires a password to access them.
Once all events have passed the databases will also be deleted.
When you message us, we will keep these messages until we see fit, for example: We did not help with any of your planning, but we know your event date has passed - These messages will then be deleted.
Will information be shared with third parties?
We will never share your information with any third party without your consent. As a supplier within a large sector, we work alongside some really great companies, however, we will never mention or discuss any client details or share any data unless the client has asked specifically for his/her details to be passed on.
Your rights and how to complain
Please do inform us of you ever wish to have your details removed from our systems by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our Facebook page.
We do on occasions tag our clients in their event photos (but never before the event- we don’t want to spoil the surprise for the guests!) so again please do inform us if you wish to remain undisclosed!
If you are ever unhappy with our processes and feel we did not follow GDPR rules and regulations please do contact us at anytime on the above email and we will be more then happy to discuss your queries.
