Whistledown Productions are committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information. Please read this notice so that you are aware of how and why we might use your information.
What will we collect and how will we use it?
The personal information we collect from you when you contact us is your name, email and (when provided) phone number and physical address. The legal basis on which Whistledown processes your personal information is its Legitimate Interest in producing and developing content for our programmes as well as administering the production of that content.
Whistledown is the ‘data controller’ of this information. This means that Whistledown decides what your personal information is used for, and the ways in which it is processed. Where we process your personal information for our Legitimate Interests, we will carefully consider any impact on you and will not use your personal information where such impact overrides our interests.
Retaining your personal information
For editorial reasons and regulatory compliance, we will keep your data from phone calls, emails, social media messages and letters for 1 year.
Sharing your information
The information you provide will not be shared with anyone outside the production team of the programme you have contacted.
In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
Your rights and more information
If you have any questions about how we handle your personal information, or if you wish to contact us to exercise your rights in relation to your personal information, please contact us at email@example.com
If you raise a complaint with Whistledown about the way it has handled your personal information and you are dissatisfied with Whistledown’s response, you are entitled to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. In the UK, the supervisory authority is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), which can be contacted at https://ico.org.uk/concerns.
