What personal data we collect and how we use itWe will usually collect basic personal data about you like your name, postal address, telephone number, email address and your bank details if you are a member. We will be very clear with you that we wished to collect such information, our reason for collecting such information, and we would only do so with your specific consent and permission.
How we use your dataWe collect your personal data in connection with specific activities, such as SAM Events, social events, workshop sessions, SAM News delivery, membership requests, feedback, donations, competition entries, information you provide in public forums on our site and applications. If applicable, we also use your information to apply for Tax Revenue through HMRC and reporting to OSCAR. The information is either needed to fulfil your request or to enable us to provide you with a more personalised service. You don't have to disclose any of this information to browse our sites. However, if you choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with certain services. Sometimes we will process your personal data to provide you with information about our work or our activities that you have requested or are expecting. On other occasions, we may process personal data when we need to do this to fulfil a contract (for example, if you have hired a film or films from our library) or where we are required to do this by law or other regulations. All data is processed only by staff and officers of the SAM. SAM also processes your data when it is in our legitimate interests to do this and when these interests do not override your rights. Those legitimate interests include providing you with information on our competitions, festivals, membership, services, merchandise, SAM News, feedback, competitions and any other activities.
