We are certified which means we have the robust processes in place to keep your data 100% safe and secure.
This privacy statement tells you about the type of data we collect and how we use it.
We operate an ‘opt in only’ communication policy for marketing materials. This means we only send out marketing materials to people that have explicitly stated they would like some either by email or post.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07974 935105 to ask about the data we hold on you, make changes or ask us to stop using it.
How we collect data from you
When you give it to us DIRECTLY
You may give us your information when you sign up to our newsletter, book onto one of our programmes, email us or when we speak directly on the phone. During that first point of contact you will be asked if you want to opt in to our marketing communications database too so you can receive relevant marketing materials and updates.
When we meet at events, you may give us your business card so we can contact you with relevant information in the future. We will always send you a post event email that asks you to confirm you are happy to receive marketing materials from Get Out More. If we don’t get the confirmation you will not be added to our database.
We will hold your data for as long as you are interacting with the content we are sending you. If you stop interacting for 2 years or more or request to be removed, we will delete your contact details from our records.
When you give it to us INDIRECTLY

When you give permission to OTHER ORGANISATIONS to share or it is available publicly
We may combine information you provide to us with information available from external sources so we get a better understanding of your business, for example your business’ website. We do this to understand how we can help your business before we communicate with you. This ensures our marketing is targeted to your business needs so we don’t waste your time. This information can also help us improve our service offering and develop new products.
The information we get from other organisations may depend on your privacy settings or the responses you give, so you should regularly check them. This information comes from the following sources:

Building profiles of our prospects and targeting communications

We may use additional information from third party sources when it is available. Such information is compiled using publicly available data about your business, for example addresses, corporate turnover, marketing spend over a period of time.
