In order for CentreStage to carry out our business functions and deliver our services, we rely on the following lawful conditions for processing personal data:

  • Consent – the individual has given their Consent to the processing of their personal data.

  • Legal Obligation – processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which CentreStage is subject.
  • Legitimate Interests – processing is necessary under the legitimate interests of CentreStage or associated third party, unless these interests are overridden by the individual’s interests or fundamental rights. Legitimate interests would be pursued in a way which might reasonably be expected and which does not impact your rights.

We will be clear and transparent with you about which lawful basis is used when processing your data.

We may collect the following information:

  • Name and job title.
  • Contact information including e-mail address.

  • Photographs – held on our contact database.
  • Passport information – in a very few cases we collect this information from associates to organise travel overseas with our clients.

What we do with the information we gather

We gather this information to understand your needs, provide you with a better service and in particular to:

  • Ensure accurate internal record keeping.
  • Provide you with services that you have requested from us and to perform our legal obligations to you.
  • Perform and administer the contract we enter into with you, in accordance with our Terms and Conditions of Business and our Associate Agreement with our freelance role-players and facilitators.
  • Process payments.
  • Improve our products and services.
  • Administer our website for internal operations and keep it safe and secure.

For the above we rely on Contractual, Legal Obligation and Legitimate Interests lawful conditions.

If you have provided your explicit consent we may also, from time to time:

  • Use your information to contact you for market research purposes by e-mail, phone or mail.
  • Periodically send promotional e-mail about new services, or other information which we think you may find interesting, using the e-mail address which you have provided.

We will never provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.  For the smooth running of our services we will on occasion share mobile numbers and/or e-mail to teams (both clients and associates) working together for the purposes of either briefing, or contacting in case of last minute emergency.

Security

CentreStage are committed to ensuring that your information is secure.  In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.

We retain your personal information for the appropriate period of time – neither too long nor too short.  We do not seek to retain data for any longer than necessary to carry out our service and fulfil our statutory and contractual obligations.  For clarity this means that we will need to keep certain information about clients, suppliers and other individuals or organisation we interact with over the course of business to carry out certain business functions for up to 7 years after completion of service for our records and to meet certain legal and compliance requirements.  For associates who have provided their CVs to us and are placed on our database, we will keep this information until you request it to be removed.

As with all electronic communications, when you give us personal data by that means, the data may be sent electronically to servers anywhere in the world and may be used, stored and processed anywhere in the world, including countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), many of whom do not have stringent data protection laws. If any data we collect is sent outside the EEA we take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy, including ensuring that the recipients to which it is sent are either “safe” countries with similar data protection regimes to ours or are covered by US Privacy Shield certification or equivalent protection where applicable, or are covered through undertakings under EU standard contractual clauses for transfers of data (also referred to as the model contract).  This would particularly apply to our contact database, project management system and accounting software.  We have checked the privacy policies of the owner organisations and confirm they are compliant.
