When Do We Collect Personal Data About You?

We collect information about you when you book a ticket via our website. We also collect information when you make any other donation, and if you sign up to our Mailing List or complete a survey. If you visit our website we also collect information using cookies.

Why Do We Collect & Process Personal Data?

We collect Personal Data about you to:

  • process your ticket orders or other bookings and contracts with us;
  • manage your account and other customer records with us;
  • fundraise and promote the charitable interests of Chiddingfold Village Hall;
  • process donations, including Gift Aid;
  • manage our volunteers;
  • ensure the safety of our visitors and volunteers;
  • (if you agree) to send you information about Chiddingfold Cinema which we think may be of interest to you; and
  • comply with any legal obligations.

What Is The Basis For Collecting & Processing Personal Data?

To process your personal data, we rely on the following legal bases:

  • for the performance of a contract we have with you (such as booked tickets);
  • to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject (such as tax obligations); or
  • to further our legitimate business interests (such as tailoring your experience on our website), provided that such processing does not outweigh your rights and freedoms.

If there is another specific purpose where the above legal bases would not apply to the processing of your Personal Data by us (such as receiving marketing communications), we will seek your consent to do so.

How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Data?

We keep your Personal Data for no longer than is reasonably necessary to comply with our obligations to you and what the law requires (for example, safeguarding children), and to satisfy any accounting or reporting requirements. This means we will generally need to retain your details for a maximum of 24 months after your last transaction or other recorded interaction with us.

In determining the retention period of all Personal Data we take into account the amount, sensitivity and potential risk to you of any unauthorised disclosure and aim to minimise both the amount of Personal Data we hold and the duration we retain it. For example, if you have bought a ticket or booked a room with us we will need to keep your Personal Data at least until the accounts for that year have been audited and filed with the Charity Commission.

What If Do Not Want To Provide My Personal Data?

We need to collect a certain amount of information about you in order to provide the services we offer. If you decline to provide the Personal Data we require we will not be able to enter any contract with you and could not, for example, sell you a ticket.

Exercising Your Rights

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

  • What we may need from you

To make sure Personal Data is not disclosed to anyone without the right to access it we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of your other rights). We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

  • Time limit to respond

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.


If we are processing your Personal Data based solely on your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.
