We use Mailchimp to create and send our email newsletters.
If you request to receive our newsletter, we collect a first name, surname and an email address. This information is collected through one of the following methods;
- Through Mailchimp via our signup form
- Through a specified Newsletter signup column on a sign-in/registration form at one of our Portal events
- If directly requested through an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use Eventbrite for processing tickets for any of our Portal events including the Arts in Education Portal National Day. To purchase a ticket you are asked to provide a first name, surname and an email address. We process this data through Eventbrite for the sole purpose of providing an event ticket – it is not used for any other purpose and is not shared with any other third party.
We may contact you following an event to request some feedback through a survey link but this request will be sent via Eventbrite only. You can at any time ‘opt out’ from receiving communications from us via Eventbrite by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of these emails.
The personal data is held in our Organiser Eventbrite account for a maximum 3 months after the event and is then deleted. By purchasing a ticket you are NOT automatically added to our email newsletter.
