Surrey Guild of Craftsmen recognises that privacy and security are major concerns and is committed to ensuring that your information is secure. We protect your personal information as described in this privacy policy.

Purpose of policy

We are committed to protecting your personal information and being transparent about what information we hold about you.

Your personal information helps us to understand our customers and provide you with relevant information about the work that we do and the information we share with you both online and at our events.

We use your information in accordance with all current laws concerning the protection of personal information and as these may change from time to time, so will this policy.

This policy explains: what information we may collect about you and how we use that information, the use of cookies and how we keep your personal information secure.

The information we gather & how it is used

If you have asked to join our mailing list we retain a note of the information you have given to us purely for this purpose – this is usually your name and email address, but may also include additional information such as your postal address and telephone number.

You may ask us to remove your details from our mailing list at any time.

We are required by law to keep a record of purchases in our gallery for accounting purposes.

We do not keep your contact details if you have merely made a one-off enquiry about the work of a member. However, we may share your contact details with one of our members if it is necessary to answer a query you have made for a service or purchase. You will be made aware of this at the time of enquiry.

Unless required to do so for legal reasons (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies), we will not share your details with any other person or business.
