This privacy notice describes how we collect, use and store personal information about you during and after your business relationship with us, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU 2016/679) (GDPR).
Storymakers is a “data controller”. This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use and store personal information about you. We are required under the GDPR to notify you of the information contained in this privacy notice.
We may update this notice at any time. If relevant (and feasible), we will notify you.
It is important that you read this notice, together with any other privacy notices we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal information about you, so that you are aware of how and why we are using your personal information.
DATA PROTECTION PRINCIPLES
We will comply with all relevant data protection law (including the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018). This requires that the personal information we hold about you must be:
Used lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way.
Collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes.
Relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes.
Accurate and kept up to date.
Kept only as long as necessary for the purposes we have told you about.
THE KIND OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOLD ABOUT YOU
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified, whether directly or indirectly. It does not include data where an individual cannot be identified (anonymous data).
We collect personal data across the business – including full name, email address, mobile number of parent and name of children attending classes. We also collect contact details for venues where classes are held.
This personal data is collected through the contact form on our website (www.storymakerskids.com), on via social media channels and documents provided to us by parents.
This personal data is shared with external organisations who support our business
operation. These organisations include:
Happity – who handle customer bookings.
Stripe – who administer payments for bookings. We have no visibility of payment card data.
Personal data is stored on a secure laptop, access to which is permission-based. All personal data is retained within the EU.
HOW WE WILL USE INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
We will only use your personal information in the ways the law allows. Most commonly, we
will use your personal information in the following circumstances:
Where you have provided your data in a landing page form fill, or an enquiry. We will use legitimate interest to contact you off the back of this submission.
Where processing is required for the performance of a contract either party have entered – in this respect, where you have engaged with us and paid for our service to attend a class.
Where processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation – such as retainingrecords for HMRC or Inland Revenue purposes.
SITUATIONS IN WHICH WE WILL USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We need all the categories of information detailed above primarily to allow us to contact you following your enquiry on one of our landing pages.
If you are a customer or supplier, then we will need to process your data in line with our legal obligations. In some cases, we may use your personal information to pursue legitimate interests of our own or those of third parties, provided your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests. The situations in which we will process your personal information are listed below.
* Administration of a contract we have entered with you and providing our products and services to you.
* Business management and planning, including accounting and auditing. In these instances, we will share your personal data with our accountants.
* Dealing with legal disputes involving you, or any disputes that may arise under the contract that we have with you or the way in which we provide our products and services to you.
Some of the above grounds for processing will overlap and there may be several grounds which justify our use of your personal information.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we
collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting
If you stop attending our classes, we will only retain child data for a period of 3 months after last session
For HMRC purposes, we will retain any records of invoices or other financial records for a 7-year period.
