WRiTEON Privacy Policy

WRiTEON provides script writing, acting, directing and producing opportunities for its members and affiliated artists. 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 purpose. We may also occasionally contact you about specific WRiTEON activities in which you have expressed an interest.

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 for our staged readings and other productions, plus some additional 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. Contact details will be shared with other members of the committee and with WRiTEON event organisers where needed, e.g. to verify eligibility for membership benefits.

The names and email addresses of former paid-up members may be retained by WRiTEON after the end of their membership, to enable us to send renewal reminders, and occasionally for research purposes.

For more information on joining WRiTEON as a paid-up member, see www.writeon.org.uk/membership. If you have any queries about membership or the data we hold, please email 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. This includes both paid-up members and affiliated artists. You can add yourself to this database by clicking here.

By supplying WRiTEON with your details, you consent to these 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
  • Age Range/Year of birth (optional)
  • Gender
  • Physical description, for casting purposes

This data is shared with producers and directors as required so that roles in 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 email database@writeon.org.uk.
