Web Privacy:
INTRODUCTION

Protecting your privacy as a user of the Website is important to us and we strive to keep all information relating to you confidential in accordance with this statement. As part of the normal operation of our services you may voluntarily provide us with information about yourself (“Personal Data”). The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to explain what Personal Data we collect about you, how that Personal Data might be used and how we protect your Personal Data and privacy.

Archway Group (the company behind Treehouse Festival) is opposed to the increasing use of data to monitor and manipulate society. We consider it to be an invasion of our privacy in an increasingly commercially dominated world. Each person who gives us Personal Data, can be confident we see you as a creative individual, who has joined the community, and that we will adhere to the conditions as set out in this Statement with regard to keeping your personal information private.

We will be happy to answer any enquiries from you regarding this Privacy Statement, the Personal Data we hold about you or the use we make of it. If you have any queries or comments, or wish to correct, update, amend or remove any information we hold about you, drop us a line on info@treehousefestival.co.uk

WHAT DATA DO WE COLLECT AND HOW?

If you are merely visiting the public areas of the Website, we may automatically collect information about your visits, such as browsing patterns. Information collected in this way is limited to information about the system you use to browse the site and your activity on the site. This information is only used in aggregate form to analyse, manage and develop the Website and is not linked to any individual.  We do not know who you are personally!

If you are a member of the website in future iterations or on our newsletter mailing list, we will collect and hold certain Personal Data about you when you register. The Personal Data collected by us will include your name, password, and e-mail address. From time to time you may also provide other Personal Data which we need to provide you with the service you request, such as your credit card details, other information about yourself, your preferences or your experiences.

HOW DO WE USE MEMBERS’ PERSONAL DATA?

We will use all Personal Data for the purpose of providing you with the services you have requested in accordance with the Conditions. We take steps to limit the Personal Data we use in this way to what is necessary for the contract between us.

From time to time, we may use your Personal Data to let you know about other services, initiatives, products, and news about Treehouse Festival, though rather rarely. We may also use Personal Data in aggregate form to monitor and improve our services, including continuing development of this website. These uses of data are in our legitimate interests to continue to provide the community with excellent events and related services.

We will not give your details to any other third party for any reason other than is stated here.

We reserve the right to access and disclose Personal Data to comply with applicable laws and lawful government requests or requests by the police investigating suspected illegal activities, to operate our systems properly or to protect ourselves or other the Website users. We also reserve the right to disclose Personal Data to third parties if a complaint arises concerning your use of the Website, and that use is deemed by us to be inconsistent with the Conditions.
