At Lakin McCarthy Entertainment Ltd. we take your privacy seriously and aim to ensure that any personal information we hold is accurate, relevant and safe.
We adhere to the first principle of data protection which is that personal data must be processed fairly and lawfully.
On the whole, the rights individuals will enjoy under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) are the same as those under the DPA (Data Protection Act) but with some significant enhancements.
We may ask you to provide all or some of the following personal information:
We collect this data in order to keep you informed about the work we do on your behalf, to ensure that payments to you can be made promptly, and to meet our company’s legal obligations.
We will take appropriate technical and organisational precautions to secure your personal data and to prevent loss, misuse or alteration. We will keep electronic data securely within Dropbox which is password protected and can only be accessed by our staff. Online data is kept on a server secured with a SHA-2 2048 bit encrypted SSL certificate issued by Starfield Technologies. Any paper copies of personal data will be stored securely on our premises.
We will only use your personal data in a way that you would reasonably expect for contractual and/or legitimate purposes, such as processing payments due to you or providing venues with your contact details where necessary.
Your personal data is only available to our staff and venues on a "need to know" basis for contractual and/or legitimate purposes. It will never be shared with any other third parties without your consent where necessary for the provision of services.
We will not hold your data for any longer than we need to. We will keep any company, including financial, information for 7 years in line with Government guidance.
When necessary, any paper copies of personal information will be destroyed so that they cannot be accessed by any unauthorised third parties. Any electronic data to be disposed of would be deleted from our Dropbox and/or email accounts.
We have no plans to make any significant changes to the ways in which we use your data. However, if we ever do make any major changes, we will contact you and ask for your consent to our new Data Privacy Notice.
The GDPR includes the following rights for individuals:
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies and to delete cookies. The methods for doing so vary from browser to browser, and from version to version. You can however obtain up-to-date information about blocking and deleting cookies via these links:
Blocking all cookies will have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites. If you block cookies, you will not be able to use all the features on our website.
If at any point you believe the information we process about you is incorrect you can request to see this information and have it corrected or deleted.
If you no longer want us to hold personal data about you, you have the "right to be forgotten" and can request that we delete any information that is no longer relevant.
If you wish to raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal data, you can contact us to have the matter investigated by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are not satisfied with our response or believe we are processing your personal data not in accordance with the law you can complain to the Information Commissioner's Office https://ico.org.uk/
