The Leamington Spa Competitive Festival is exempt from registration under the Data Protection Act as information recorded is limited to that for which exemption is available. However the Festival takes great care and responsibility over the information recorded for administrative purposes and its dealings with competitors and other parties.
If you complete any online forms on this site, the information that you send to us will be used only for the purposes you have requested and will not be retained for any other purpose or beyond the time required to fulfil your requirements unless we ask you specifically to allow us to do so.
We will not release any personal or other information submitted by competitors and others unless we have specific permission from the subject to do so, or we required to do so by the operation of law or any regulatory requirement.
All Festival Officers, Section Secretaries, Committee members and volunteers are required to maintain confidentiality over personal information.
We may, for publicity purposes, ask to take photographs of class/trophy winners and these may be included on the Festival website. We will always ask your permission, or as set out in the Festival's Child Protection Policy, those of a parent, guardian or other accompanying adult if the competitor is a minor, before taking and displaying any photographs. You may refuse your permission under any circumstances and this will be respected. You may alternatively wish to give permission for publicity in "hard copy" publications but not on the website. Other than a name and perhaps a general locality (as in the programme), no other personal details will be released which would identify more about yourself or any details of your address.
