Whenever you give us Data through this website, you are agreeing to its collection and for us to process it as explained at the time of collection and in this Policy, including our use of ‘cookies’ (see section ‘Cookies’).

We operate an integrated communications programme which means we use your Data to communicate with you through several different channels; including direct mail and email (see sections ‘What we use your data for’ and ‘Promotional activity’). Our aim is to keep you up-to-date with all the latest news of Printwithpride.com and the organising partners, however if you feel you no longer wish to receive direct mail or email communications from us, you are able to change your mailing preferences individually with each organisation at any time (see section ‘Opting Out’).

What personal data do we collect and how do we store it?

If you wish to sign up for an event, you will need to sign up through our website registration process or contact one of the organising partners outside of the website. Registering through our website will involve you providing us with Data about you such as your name, company name and email address.

After your registration for one of our events, we may collect other Data such as telephone numbers, etc. You may be contacted by any one of the organising partners in the lead up to or in the follow up/promotional activities of the events hosted for the purpose of administrating an event. You can opt out at any time of promotional activities, but if you intend to take part in one of our events, we will need to contact you in relation to the event.

Data is stored in for example CRM databases, excel spreadsheets, MailChimp/bulk email sending software and may also be stored on computer or mobile phone contact databases.
