WRiTEON Privacy Policy

WRiTEON provides stage writing, acting, directing and producing opportunities for its members and others. To facilitate these activities, WRiTEON collects, processes and retains some personal data. WRiTEON is committed to protecting the privacy and security of this data.

WRiTEON maintains the following databases:

1. Newsletter Mailing List

We periodically send out a Newsletter, providing information on our activities, together with relevant announcements from sister organisations. You can sign up to the Newsletter online at www.writeon.org.uk/contact-us. By signing up, you consent to receiving our Newsletter, and to the storage of your name and email address for this sole purpose. Your details are stored by the MailChimp service, which manages the Mailing List for us. The MailChimp privacy policy can be viewed here: mailchimp.com/legal/privacy.

You can remove yourself from the Mailing List at any time, either by clicking the “unsubscribe from this list” link at the end of any Newsletter, or by contacting us via any of the methods listed in www.writeon.org.uk/contact-us.

2. Membership List

You have the option to join WRiTEON as a paid-up Member, which entitles you to submit scripts to our open calls, amongst other benefits. We keep a list of current paid-up Members in order to check eligibility for these benefits, and to provide timely renewal reminders. By joining WRiTEON as a paid-up member, you consent to your name and email address being stored by us for these purposes.

This list is held by the Membership Secretary, and is not shared with anyone else.

The names and email addresses of former paid-up members may be retained by WRiTEON for up to one year after the end of their membership, to enable us to send renewal reminders. If you do not wish your details to be retained after your membership has ceased, please contact info@writeon.org.uk.

For more information on joining WRiTEON, see www.writeon.org.uk/membership. If you have any queries about membership or the data we hold, please contact membership@writeon.org.uk.

3. Actors/Directors List

We maintain a database of people who have expressed an interest in acting or directing for WRiTEON, and have supplied us with personal details for this purpose. By supplying WRiTEON with your details, you consent to the details being stored in this database.

The data we hold comprises some or all of:

  • Name, email address, phone number
  • Interests – acting, directing, technical support
  • Additional skills, e.g. accents, singing
  • Year of birth
  • Gender
  • Physical description, for casting purposes

This data is shared with producers and directors as necessary so that roles in new stage productions and other events can be offered to suitable candidates. No data is shared beyond those who need it for this purpose, and any copies are removed once the event is over.

If you wish to review the data we hold on you, to modify your details, or to remove yourself from the database, please contact info@writeon.org.uk.
