TEDxBristol Limited (“TEDxBristol” / “we” / “our” / ‘us”) is a voluntary, non-profit organisation which exists to share great ideas through inspirational events, short talks and social media, and while doing so is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy if you decide to attend our events or opt into any communications with us.
Please read the notice below carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding how we will collect and process your personal data when you engage with us.
We will collect personal information from you when you engage with us via the following channels:
our website: contact forms and direct email links to @tedxbristol.com email addresses. This includes information provided at the time of requesting goods, services or information from us.
our e-newsletter (requires you to sign-up, is administered via Mailchimp)
our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Instagram, Flickr.)
our direct emails to you when you purchase tickets for a TEDxBristol event
your attendance at TEDxBristol events or other events / venues where we present or hold events and socials
your participation in volunteer activities in support of TEDxBristol
We will only collect and process data about you if there is a reason for doing so, and if that reason is permitted under data protection law.
In practice this means we collect and process information such as your contact details (your first name, surname and email address) in order to keep you informed about our events, projects, ticket sales and community news, and to ask for feedback about our events.
If you opt-in to receive our e-newsletter, the communications will include offers and discounts on our tickets, features on our speakers and events, the wider TED.com and TEDx community, topics we think you’ll be interested in, and information about the local and national partners who we work with to create TEDxBristol events. You can unsubscribe from the TEDxBristol e-newsletter at any time.
TEDxBristol does not collect any financial data about you. However when you purchase tickets through our external ticketing partners, you may be asked to provide information about yourself including your name, contact details, address, order details and payment information such as credit or debit card information. All payment details are handled by our ticketing partners, however other personal information may be passed back to us to help us understand our delegated better and improve our events.
We will not retain your personal data for any longer than we think is necessary. The information that we collect will be retained for as long as needed to fulfil the activities outlined above.
We will securely erase your information where we no longer require your information for the purposes it was collected, and/or if you ask us to erase it from our records (see contact information below).
TEDxBristol will not share your data with Third Parties except in these circumstances:
If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
TED.com grants our TEDxBristol operational licence and in doing so requests that all TEDx events send a short feedback form to their delegates after each TEDx event. If you attend a TEDxBristol event, we will share the basic contact details you provided (your first name, surname and email address) with TED.com for the purposes of sending out this feedback form. We will never share any sensitive data (such as ethnicity, DOB, gender or financial details) but TED.com may ask you to provide further details in order to research our audience profile.
Our Site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our suppliers, partner networks, advertisers, affiliates and other third parties. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites will have their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies or the content or operation of these websites. Please check these policies and the terms of the websites before you submit any personal data to these websites.
TEDxBristol Limited follows a strict data processing policy, in order to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. We do not use encryption (such as SSL) or firewalls to further protect the information as it travels across the Internet. We do not believe that the personal information we collect warrants this level of security.
The Data Protection Act 1998 gives you the right to access certain information held by us about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Please contact TEDxBristol at the address below if you would like to access the personal information that we hold about you.
