Privacy Policy

Oriel Colwyn Privacy Policy


Oriel Colwyn is committed to protecting your privacy.

From 25 May 2018, a new EU regulation, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) comes into force. This has been designed to update the existing Data Protection Directive.


What does this mean for you?


The information that you have supplied will be used by Oriel Colwyn to keep you up to date with news, exhibitions, events and opportunities.

You may unsubscribe at any time by using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email.


What Information do we collect about you?


We collect your name and email address when you subscribe to our mailing list or make contact with us.

We collect further information when you voluntarily complete customer surveys, provide feedback and participate in competitions.

When someone visits we use the third party services of Google Analytics and WordPress to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow these services to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.




Certain parts of the Website use "cookies" to keep track of your visit and to help you navigate between sections. A cookie is a small data file that certain websites store on your computer's hard-drive when you visit such websites. Cookies can contain information such as your user ID and the pages you have visited. The only personal information a cookie contains is information that you have personally supplied.

We use cookies on the Website to enable us to deliver content that is specific to your interests and gives us an idea of which parts of the Website you are visiting and to recognise you when you return to the Website. Reading cookies does not give us access to other data on your computer's hard-drive and our Website will not read cookies created by other websites that you have visited.

You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. If, however, you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of the Website. Unless you have adjusted your browser settings so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you access the Website.

Please note providers of third party content may also use cookies over which we have no control.


Embedded content from other websites


Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Where our website contains links to other websites, our privacy policy only applies to this website so when you link to other websites you should read their own privacy policies.


How will we use the information about you?


We collect information about you to email you about our exhibitions, events and programmes we think may be of interest to you. Unless otherwise disclosed, we will not share your details of information with anybody outside of the organisation without your consent.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.




We will not retain personal information longer than necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is processed, including the security of our processing complying with legal and regulatory obligations (e.g. audit, accounting and statutory retention terms), handling disputes and programming.




We would like to send you information about exhibitions, events of ours and other related organisations, which may be of interest to you. If you have consented to receive marketing, you may opt out at a later date. You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes.
