Many people are concerned about the personal data that companies hold on them and how they're using it. Here at Reminisce we'd like to take a minute to explain what we do.
The EU's new Global Data Protection Regulation means that any company dealing with people's data in any way - even if they don't own the data and are just doing something with it for somebody else (such as storing it) - has to comply with some very strict rules and procedures.
So, to break it down...
The website also contains some third party cookies:
With all third-party cookies, we do not gain any magical access to your personal data. All we can see are general trends and habits of visitors to our site. Needless to say, we can't vouch for what Facebook, Google or Hotjar might be doing.
Reminisce Festival is owned and operated by Reminisce Festival Life Ltd. This is the company that legally owns any information you give us. A company called In Demand Events Ltd deals with event management, logistics and data management on behalf of the festival.
If you sign up to our mailing list or buy a ticket to the festival, In Demand Events collects and stores this data. We only hold the data you give us (ie we do not try and match you up with third party databases). We also do not share or sell the data we keep with anybody else.
For those interested in the technicalities, In Demand Events Ltd store the data on encrypted databases hosted on AWS RDS servers. All of our sites operate using SSL to ensure that any information you enter is encrytped as it travels over the internet. The data travels directly from the signup form to the servers and does not go via any other data storage facility. Subsets of our data may exist at any given time on our AWS servers and occasionally on Dropbox's servers when our staff are working with it. AWS and Dropbox are both fully compliant with the GDPR.
As mentioned, we don't sell or share you data with third parties. Reminisce Festival and In Demand Events use it in two ways:
The so-called "right to be forgotton" means that if someone wishes to have a company remove all traces of any data they hold on the person, then the company should be able to comply. We will glady remove anyone from our database should they wish to be removed. If you use our unsubscribe option on the mailing list you will stop receiving emails from the festival, but you will remain on the database and may recieve other messages in the future regarding other similar events. If you want to be removed completely then please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
