Privacy Statement

Ayr Film Society respects your privacy. We are committed to protecting your personal information and being transparent about what information we hold about you.

What personal data we collect

We collect your data when you sign up to become a member of Ayr Film Society, attend a screening as a Guest or donate to us online. We collect your name, address, email address and telephone number. We will also store a record of your purchases and donations.

Why we are processing your personal data

We collect your personal data to keep you updated about the films and events that we programme and to keep you updated on the latest news about the society.

Who else has access to your personal data

Ayr Film Society uses your contact information only in relation to your membership of, attendance at, or support of the Society. Your data will never be shared with any other party without your explicit consent.

Security of your personal information

We have in place appropriate safeguards (both in terms of our procedures and the technology we use) to keep your personal information as secure as possible. We will ensure that any third parties we use for processing your personal information do the same. We will not transfer, process or store your data with any organization that does not comply with GDPR provisions.

Legal basis

The law only allows organisations to hold and process personal data for six reasons, and we use three of these:

1. Contract purposes
When you make a purchase from us or make a donation to us, you are entering into a contract with us. In order to perform this contract we need to process and store your data. For example we may need to contact you by email or telephone in the case of cancellation of a screening, or in the case of problems with your payment.

2. Legitimate business interests

In certain situations we collect and process your personal data for purposes that are in our legitimate organisational interests. However we only do this if there is no overriding disadvantage to you if we use your personal information in this way.

3. With your explicit consent

For any situations where the two bases above are not appropriate, we will instead ask for your explicit consent before using your personal information in that specific situation. For example we will ask for your consent before contacting you by email for marketing purposes.

Your rights to your personal information

You have the right to object to any of this processing at any time. You have a right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold about you and to have any inaccuracies in this data corrected. Please use the contact details at the start of this policy if you would like to exercise this right or speak to an Ayr Film Society Committee member before or after a screening.

Withdrawing consent

You have the legal right to withdraw consent for us to hold and/or process your data at any time. This can include withdrawing consent for some activities, but not others (for example, unsubscribing from our email newsletter, but continuing to receive season brochures in the post).

Please bear in mind that if you object this may affect our ability to carry out tasks above that are for your benefit. A withdrawal of consent will result in the full removal of your details and you will be unsubscribed from any future Ayr Film Society communications. You will no longer receive any information on Ayr Film Society’s activities.
