Keeping your Data Safe

National Liturgical Dance Network UK (“us”, “our”, “we”, "NLDN UK”) is the controller of your personal data collected through the Website. NLDN UK is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. 

1. Introduction


This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) sets out the types of personal data we collect when you access and visit (the “Website”), and how we may manage and use that data. 


It is important that you read this Privacy Policy together with any other privacy notice or fair processing notices that we may provide on the Website at or around the time that we collect or process personal data about you so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using that data.  


This Privacy Policy supplements other notices on our Website and is not intended to override or replace them. 


By visiting or otherwise using our Website, you agree to its terms (including as amended from time to time) and this Privacy Policy.  If, for any reason, you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please stop using this Website.

We reserve the right to revise or amend this Privacy Policy at any time to reflect changes to our business or changes in the law.  Where these changes are significant, we will endeavour to let users of the Website know. However, it is your responsibility to check this Privacy Policy before each use of the Website.


The Website is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect personal data relating to children. 

2. What information can we collect? 


This Privacy Policy covers the collection and processing of your personal data. Where this Privacy Policy refers to ‘personal data’ it is referring to data about you from which you could be identified – such as your name, your date of birth, your contact details and even your IP address.

  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your fundamental rights do not override those interests; and

We will only provide service providers with the minimum amount of personal data they need to fulfil the services we request, and we stipulate that they protect this data and do not use it for any other purpose. We take these relationships seriously and oblige all of our data processors to sign contracts with us that clearly set out their commitment to respecting individual rights, and their commitments to assisting us to help you exercise your rights as a data subject.  The following is a list of the type of trusted service providers we use:


  • Website Developers

Links to third party sites 


This Website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you.

When you leave our Website, we encourage you to read the Privacy Policy of every website you visit.


5. For how long do we keep your personal data?


We will hold your personal information on our systems only for as long as required to provide you with the services you have requested, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements.  We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you. 


In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see ‘Your Rights’ below for further information.


In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.


6. Security


NLDN UK takes the protection of your information very seriously. Where we have given you a password that enables you to access certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. 



7. International Data Transfers


Whenever we do transfer your personal data outside of the United Kingdom and European Economic Area (together “UKEEA”), we ensure that a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring that in most cases at least one of the following safeguards is implemented: 


  • we will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission; 

  • we will only transfer data to the US, where the business we are transferring your personal data to is part of the Privacy Shield (which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US); and 

  • where you we use certain service providers, we will use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which gives personal data the same protection it has in Europe. 


By submitting your personal data, you understand the terms on which we may transfer your personal data outside of the UKEEA. If you would like more information about transfers outside of the UKEEA, please contact us.


8. Your Rights


Right of Access

You may, at any time, request access to the personal data we hold about you (you may have heard of this right being described as a "subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

Your Right to Rectification 

You may request that we correct personal data that we hold about you which you believe is incorrect or inaccurate, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Your Right to Erasure

You may ask us to erase personal data if you do not believe that we need to continue retaining it (you may have heard of this right described as the “right to be forgotten”).  If for any reason we believe that we have a good legal reason to continue processing personal data that you ask us to erase we will tell you what that reason is at the time we respond to your request. 


Your Right to Object to Processing

You may object to processing of your personal data where we rely on legitimate interest for processing that personal data. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. We will comply with your request unless we have a compelling overriding legitimate interest for processing or we need to continue processing your personal data to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim. 


Your Right to Restrict Processing

This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:

  • if you want us to establish the data's accuracy;

  • where our use of the data is unlawful, but you do not want us to erase it;

  • where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or

  • you have objected to our use of your data, but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.


Your Right to Portability

We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Your Right to object to automated decision making and profiling

You have the right to be informed about the existence of any automated decision making and profiling of your personal data, and where appropriate, be provided with meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing that affects you. 

Your right to withdraw consent at any time

You may withdraw your consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

Exercising your rights

When you write to us making a request to exercise your rights, we are entitled to ask you to prove that you are who you say you are. We may ask you to provide copies of relevant ID documents to help us to verify your identity. 


9. Contact Details

If you have any queries regarding this Privacy Policy, if you wish to exercise any of your rights set out above or if you think that the Privacy Policy has not been followed, please contact us by emailing at


You may also lodge a complaint with our lead supervisory authority, the Information Commissioner, or your local supervisory authority about any aspect of our handling or processing of your personal data.  We would, however, appreciate the chance to address your concerns before you approach any supervisory authority, so please contact us in the first instance.
