Mr Kite Benefits handles the data provided when individuals subscribe to our
mailing lists. It reflects what we have done since we started in 1997 and is
provided for the purposes of clarity and was prompted by the introduction of the
EU General Data Protection Regulations of May 2018.
What we do
We send mailshots about our Benefit concerts to two groups of people. Firstly, to potential audience members for our Benefits and, secondly, to members of the media (press, radio, etc) who might choose to include details of our Benefits in their publications or programmes. In both cases, we hold the name and email address of the person who has subscribed to the mailing list. For some audience members, we have their addresses from the days when our mailshots went via the physical postal service. For some members of the media, we have the name of their employer (newspaper, radio station, etc).
Individuals have subscribed to these mailshots by signing up to the mailing list at a Benefit concert, mailing us via the Mr Kite Benefits website or by some other personal contact. This data is held on a password protected computer and, email address and name only, by a professional email marketing organisation (MailChimp). At any time, subscribers can mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to us to remove their data from these databases. Mailshots are sent out on a regular basis though we aim to avoid being a nuisance for the valued members of our mailing list. There is always the 'unsubscribe' option on the mailshot and we encourage subscribers to use this if their interest in our fundraising Benefits wanes.
What we don't do
As you might expect from an organisation that fundraises for charity, we behave in an ethical way as follows:
We don't gather data beyond that indicated above.
We don't pass the data mentioned above to any other third party.
We don't obtain personal data from any other third party.
