Images / Video:

We don’t have CCTV at Cartwheel Arts, although some of the venues that we hire for projects may do - we don’t have access to this.

We often take photos and/or video and sound recordings at our events and project sessions. We will ask for your consent to do this, if you refuse then we’ll ask you to wear a badge so that the photographer can see that you don’t want to be photographed. At larger events where it is not feasible to ask for individual consent, we will clearly indicate that photographs / video is being taken and how to withdraw consent. 



We collect personal information to fulfil legal and contractual requirements, or if we feel that there is a legitimate interest, or if you have given us consent to do so.

If you are taking part in a project then we need to hold your contact details so that we can keep you informed.

Often, our funders will require us to collect information about the projects that we are delivering. You will always be told what this is. Most of the data is statistical or anonymous so can’t be linked to an individual. We will get your express permission to use anything that is personally identifiable such as a case study.

Lots of our projects produce outputs such as video, print, art work or content for websites and press releases. We will always ask for your consent to use this.

We will only collect sensitive personal information, such as health, disability, economic situation if we are contractually obliged to, or is it is to help to keep you safe. For example, if you are coming on a trip with us then we would need to know if you are asthmatic or have a nut allergy etc.

  1. We’ll never provide any of your information to a third party without your permission
  2. You have the right to challenge us about any information that we hold relating to you
  3. You have the right for your details to be removed from our systems (database and newsletter)
  4. We may compile statistical data from time to time (for our Impact Report, to report to funders etc) but this will never include references to particular individuals
  5. We will never, ever sell or give our mailing lists to a third party
  6. We store any information as securely as possible. Anything stored digitally is password protected and paper records are stored in secure cabinets.

  2. We collect data for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes shall not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes (‘purpose limitation’)
  3. We only collect data that is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed (‘data minimisation’)

  6. We process data in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures (‘integrity and confidentiality’)
