Cookies & Privacy Policy

 

This website (www.modernmysteries.com) is owned and operated by Andy Green trading as Modern Mysteries.

 

1. Introduction

We’re committed to protecting and respecting your privacy in line with new EU-wide Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

This policy explains (hopefully in plain English) how and why we use information you have given us and how we keep it secure. GDPR also gives you new rights and much more control over your personal data. We’ll tell you about all this below  as well.

 

2. How we collect information from you

Obviously we collect information about you when you contact us about products and services. Typically you will provide us your name and address, an email address and phone number.  We also collect limited information when you visit our website via cookies. These help us improve and personalise our site. We've explained more about both in sections 3 and 4 below.

4. How we handle information collected when you contact us about products or services

GDPR requires all businesses to have a lawful basis to process personal data about a customer/prospective customer.  The law sets out six different lawful bases to choose from. Business owners have to explain to you how and when we process your data and the legal basis for each occurance. Currently our processing fits into three of the six available bases.

‘Contractual’ basis – this is when processing your data is obvious and necessary, for example you submit an enquiry and ask us to get back to you or you contact us to book a show.  Please be assured, we will only use this data for the purposes of offering relevant services to you.

 

‘ Legitimate Interests’ basis  - we may contact you again after we have provided our services. For example we might email you in the future to remind you about our services. The law says businesses cannot send marketing emails or texts to individuals without specific consent. However, there is a limited exception if you are a previous customer as long as we only contact you about the same or similar products. GDPR’s terminology for this is ‘soft opt-in’.  Rest assured, we will always give you the option of never hearing from us again.

 

 

‘ Legal Obligation’ basis  - some processing is necessary because we have to comply with the law. For example, when you hire our services. HMRC require us to keep records for at least 5 years.

 

5. Security of your data

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. We will absolutely not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

a) When you call, email or contact us via our website or social media, we are committed to processing any personal information you give us securely and safely.

b) When you book with us we also generate an invoice that we either email or post to you. GDPR doesn’t prohibit keeping personally identifiable information on paper but we must take all reasonable steps to make sure it’s stored securely. We confirm that we always adhere fully to the safe storage of your personal data be that electronic or paper.

c) We use 123 Reg Limited as our email providers. When you send us an email it is encrypted in transit to prevent other people reading it. 123 Reg email use secure mail servers with the same level of robustness as shopping sites.

d) Our website is hosted on 123 Reg Limited servers, Any information you send via our webform will be secure and communications between your browser and the website are encrypted (SSL).

e) We use PayPal as a third party payment portal online. PayPal use robust banking-standard security and protection to make sure your data is processed securely. Read more here

f) We use a third party database provider Mailchimp. This is a marketing automation platform which helps us to keep in touch with our customers. Mailchimp comply with the GDPR's new requirements. However, just to reassure you, we will not pass on your personal information to any third party for marketing purposes. Furthermore, we will always give you the opportunity to opt out and never hear from us again.

 

6. Access to your personal information

 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provides increased rights for individuals.

This is the full list of individual’s rights. They don’t apply in all circumstances. However,

if you wish to exercise any of these rights please contact us using the details below and we’ll be happy to help.

After receiving any request, we will tell you when we expect to provide you with the information, and whether we require any fee for providing it to you. Whilst we’re expected to provide you with a copy of the information free of charge, we can charge a ‘reasonable fee’ if your request is unwarranted.
