About Us

We are Women in Film and Television (UK) Limited of First Floor, 92/93 Great Russell Street, Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3PS (Company Number: 2488927) (“WFTV”, “we”, or “us”).

This policy (“Privacy Policy”) outlines how we treat any private information you provide about yourself to us.  It covers the information that we collect, what use is made of that information and your data protection rights that we observe in the running of our website, (wftv.org.uk the “Site”).

In using the Site, you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will be drawn to your attention on the Site, and your continued use of the Site shall be deemed to constitute your acceptance of such change.

We process personal data only in strict compliance with this Privacy Policy and all applicable data protection legislation. We are the controller of the information you provide to us and we are required under data protection legislation to notify you of the information contained in this privacy notice.

Please do contact us if you have any questions or complaints about this Privacy Policy or about how we handle your information via admin@wftv.org.uk.

This Privacy Policy was last updated on 5 July 2018.

What information do we hold

The information we hold on you and how we use it will vary depending on the nature of your relationship with us.

We will collect, process and store personal information about you, which may include your name, date of birth, address, contact details, occupation and gender, as well as details of our interactions and correspondence with you.

Most of the information described above comes directly from you either during the registration process when becoming a member of WFTV (a ”Member”), or by your direct submission of personal data to the Site. However we do obtain some information from third parties, for example from the external event booking agency Eventbrite and the online survey tool SurveyMonkey.

We require certain banking information from our Members in order to process membership payments. However we do not store customers’ card details – these details will be used for the sole purpose of completing a purchase/booking/subscription, and will not be stored either electronically or physically within WFTV.

How and why do we use your personal information?

We process your personal information in order that WFTV can perform its everyday functions. We only use this information for the purpose of legitimate interests being pursued by us in relation to the services that we provide. For example, we will use your information:

  • to assist us in setting up and managing your account and maintaining membership details;
  • to inform you about any services or products which WFTV may choose to offer Members from time to time;
  • to contact you to discuss our services (and any changes to them);
  • in order to make available to you promotional or other relevant information, products or services from WFTV, its affiliates and their marketing partners;
  • to respond to any questions or concerns you have raised;
  • to deal with administrative matters such as invoicing and membership renewal; and
  • to otherwise carry out our obligations arising under a contract and to enforce the same.

We will not use your information for any other purposes unless we are required to do so by law, in connection with any legal proceedings, or in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.

Who do we share your information with?

Your information will be shared internally amongst our staff but they will only use it to carry out their duties in line with the purposes set out above. We will need to share your personal information with others from time to time, including:

  • our group’s service providers and those who provide and support our management and data storage systems;
  • our professional advisers, such as our accounting and legal advisers where they require that information in order to provide advice to us; and
  • any other regulatory authority in accordance with our legal obligations.

Applicants for membership are required to complete a registration form on the Site. When this form is submitted by the applicant, only the forename, surname and occupation will be made available in the Member directory. All other information (including e-mail address and phone number) will remain private. Should you choose to do so, you may opt to make further information available for other WFTV members to view within the Member profile section. You may also opt out of having your name and occupation in the Member directory by logging in to your member profile and amending your account settings.

We will also disclose your personal information if we are required to do so by law or to a law enforcement agency.

Where is your information stored?

Your personal data will be stored locally by us but may also be stored and backed up on servers located outside of the European Economic Area. We ensure that your data is protected in these countries by requiring the recipients of your data to enter into standard contractual clauses which have been approved by the European Commission or by relying on an alternative safeguard in accordance with applicable data protection legislation.

How long will we keep your information?

We only keep your information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy and to fulfil our legal obligations.

Members’ data will be retained on our content management system (WordPress) for a period of one year from expiration of membership. Following this period, all data will be deleted.

Any materials received from job applicants, in the case where the application is unsuccessful, will not be retained beyond one year from point of application.

7.      Right to withdraw consent If you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal data with your consent up to that point is unlawful).
