Privacy Policy

The Dance United Yorkshire website is owned and operated by Dance United Yorkshire. We are committed to safeguarding your privacy online and to this end have developed the following Privacy Policy to deal with issues which may concern you. Please read the Privacy Policy to understand how your personal information will be treated. This policy may change from time to time so please check it frequently. 
 
1. Personal Information
The details which you provide about yourself and any information which identifies you such as your name, address, email address, telephone number and country of residence ("Personal Information") will only be retained by us if you provide this information when using one of the services available on our website, such as registering your details, posting a message on the site, subscribing to one of our email lists or when purchasing goods or services.
Personal Information will be held on our system and used for operational purposes such as the processing of bookings and for mailing and email list subscriptions. In order to process a transaction (such as booking tickets), your Personal Information may be passed to third party service providers. Your details will only ever be used for the purpose for which you have provided them. (Copies of third party privacy policies are provided below)
 
The Personal Information you supply when you join one of our e-mail lists will be used by Dance United Yorkshire to keep you up-to-date with events and activities associated with our work. When purchasing items/making bookings you are given the opportunity to opt in to receiving news and information from Dance United Yorkshire and other arts organisations. Unless otherwise agreed upon, Dance United Yorkshire will not pass on your personal information to third party organisations. In the instances where this has been previously agreed upon, we supply your Personal Information for one-off use by the other arts organisation. Each e-newsletter we send you offers you the opportunity to unsubscribe, or you can ask us to do this, by e-mailing our General Manager and Executive Director, Duncan Bedson.
If you would like to revise the information provided to us at any time, or feel what we currently have on record is incorrect, you may update the information by e-mailing our General Manager and Executive Director, Duncan Bedson.
 
We may from time to time ask you for further information in order to update our records or for particular purposes. We will always tell you how we will use any further information received from you.
We will make readily available to website users information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.
 
2. Log files
Every time someone visits our web site a log file is generated on our computer.
The log file records the time and date of your visit, the files that were requested, your IP (Internet Protocol) address, the referrer URL (if provided) and the browser version. We collect this information to help us diagnose problems and administer our systems and to audit the geographical make-up of users and how they have arrived at our site; that is, from what other sites have visitors arrived - this information being obtained from the referrer URL.
We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that you remain anonymous even though we include your IP address in our aggregate information. However, we can and will attempt to use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our terms and conditions, or to protect our services and other users.
