Roma Heroes Digital Collection may process your personal data because:

We need it to provide you with a service you’ve requested.

If you don’t provide us with the required personal data, we’ll try to provide the service, but it may be impossible. We’ll keep your data whilst it’s needed to deliver the service, and for an additional three months in case you have any further queries. 

We need it to identify problems or ways to make the service better

We’ll keep your personal data for up to six months after you use the service; after that, unless we need it for a particular investigation, we’ll delete it. Sometimes we use automated processing to detect and respond to problems more quickly: if you’re individually affected by this processing, you can ask us to review its results. If there are attacks on our services, or other criminal activity, we may share information with the police.

All these uses are checked to make sure they create a benefit, rather than a risk, for individuals. If you have circumstances that may increase your risk, you may contact our data protection officer (see below) to ask for a review of that assessment.

You’ve asked us to, for example by joining one of our research projects

We’ll keep your personal data until you ask us to change or delete it, or for at least three years after you last use the service.

Individual Roma Heroes Digital Collection services may have their own privacy notices with further information about how they use your personal data.

By law you have certain rights over your personal data that we hold: to receive a copy of the data, to ask us to correct any errors, or to delete it once we no longer need it. To contact us regarding those rights, or anything else in this privacy notice, please write to our data protection officer, Edina Szabados, by e-mail (edina.szabados@independenttheater.hu). If you don’t feel we’ve dealt with your request appropriately, you can appeal to the Information Commissioner’s Office: https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/
