How is the personal data stored?

Where does the data come from?
The data we possess comes from clients themselves and the contact we have with them. When we begin the process of a booking, on the booking form you will be asked to fill in your email address and phone number.
Why do you need our email addresses and phone numbers?
The process of booking bespoke entertainment requires close contact between a client and the company so that details can be organised. It is important that the Manager is able to contact clients at will to organise details of the event. With dep musicians, it is important to have contact numbers in order to quickly contact musicians should one be required at last minute, as well as contacting the contracted musicians on the day of the performance should there be any need to.
How long do you hold on to the data?
Your details will be stored after the booking, but only for debriefing and reviewing purposes unless the client wishes to discuss further work. Musicians will be kept on file for any future work unless they ask to be removed from the list.
