In order to fulfil our newsletter emails we collect and store your; first name, last name, email address and company name (if given).
We use a third-party provider, Mailchimp, to deliver our newsletter emails. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies including clear gifs to help us monitor and improve our newsletters. For more information, please see Mailchimp’s privacy notice.
Controlling your personal information
At any time, you have the right to request removal of your data from our records. If making a request for your data to be removed, you should do so by email stating which piece(s) of data you wish to be removed (you do not have to say why). You should accept that if this is the only data we hold and therefore the only method of contacting you in relation to your listing, removal of the data (if there is no substitute) may make your listing or enquiry untenable and could result in a cancellation in accordance with the terms and conditions of The Big Gay Wedding Directory
The Big Gay Wedding Directory does not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others. The Directory may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.
Suppliers within the industries that we work in whether new to us or current customers are kept up to date with our marketing emails and offers allowing them to make an executive decision on whether they would like to take advantage of offers with us after reviewing the information that we provide.
Your Choices and Opt-Outs
Members and Visitors who have opted in to our marketing newsletters can opt out of receiving emails from us at any time by clicking the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of our newsletters.
Also, all opt-out requests can be made by emailing us using the contact details provided on the website. Please note that some communications (such as service messages, account notifications, billing information) are considered transactional and necessary for account management, and Members cannot opt out of these messages unless you cancel your subscription/ listing with The Big Gay Wedding Directory.
Retention of Data
We retain Personal Information where we have an ongoing legitimate business or legal need to do so. Our retention periods will vary depending on the type of data involved, but, generally, we'll refer to these criteria in order to determine retention period:
- Whether we have a legal or contractual need to retain the data.
- Whether the data is necessary to provide our Services.
- Whether our Members would reasonably expect that we would retain the data until their listing is inactive or terminated.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
Your personal information may also be used by us to occasionally notify you about important functionality changes to our website or new directory services we think you'll find valuable
