Contaɪnər Projects Data Protection Policy 

The type of personal information we collect 

We currently collect and process the following information:

  • Name

  • Email

  • Contact Number


How we get your personal information and why we collect it

Most of the personal information we process is provided to us directly by you for one of the following reasons:

  • To inform mailing list subscribers of upcoming events, workshops and general programming.

  • To share information with workshop participants; including booking info, any changes to workshop scheduling or updates specifically relating to the workshops they are participating in.

  • The exhibition and attribution of work by participants in the space.


We use the information that you have given us in order to share information on Container Projects programming, events and workshops. We may also use this information to update you on changes to workshop programming that you are participating in or have registered your interest in. We will always write to request permission for the presentation of work made and the choice of whether you, the participant, would like to be named or remain anonymous in an exhibition context. 


Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are:


(a) Your consent. You are able to remove your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting the project directly by email.

(b) We have a legitimate interest.


How we store your personal information 

Your information is securely stored with appropriate technical and organisational measures. 

We keep the personal information of workshop participants for the duration of the workshop programme. We will then dispose of this information by erasing both/any digital and physical records.

We will review personal information provided for mailing list subscriptions every 18 months and will always comply with individuals’ requests for erasure under ‘the right to be forgotten’. In the event that Container Projects ceases to operate, we will dispose of this information by erasing both/any digital and physical records.
