Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. This Analytics data is collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of our site and is not tied to personally identifiable information. We therefore do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.

These are cookies set on your machine by external websites whose services are used by Pavilion, including social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing on the internet, including on this website.

11. The legal basis for processing your personal data.
Article 6(1)(a) Consent: the individual has given clear consent for you to process their personal data for a specific purpose. E.g. joining Pavilion’s mailing list. Should you later wish to be removed from the Pavilion mailing list please use the unsubscribe link in any email that you receive. Alternatively, please contact and we will remove you from our contact list or change your mailing preferences accordingly.
Article 6 (1)(b) Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract we have with the individual. E.g. the processing is necessary to fulfil a contractual commitment between us and you relating to the delivery of a project you are participating in.
Article 6 (1)(c) Legal obligation: the processing is necessary for us to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations). E.g. processing personal data to comply with Pavilion’s legal obligation to HMRC.
Article 6 (1)(d) Vital interests: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life. Sometimes in extreme circumstances Pavilion will have to release information to protect your interests. E.g. in medical emergencies.
Article 6 (1)(f) Legitimate interest: processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child. E.g. contacting a journalist with Pavilion press information that they would expect to receive in their professional role (business to business activity).
It is recognised that some of the above grounds will overlap and that Pavilion could rely on multiple grounds justifying its lawful processing.

We may have to share some information with third parties who are working on our behalf for example companies who are processing payments on our behalf or who provide us with software we utilise to store data, such as accountancy information, our bank or our data systems. They are only provided with the information required in order to undertake their services to us and are not permitted to utilise any of this information to carry out their own marketing.
