The GDPR requires us to have a “legal basis” for processing and storing your personal information.

We will never give your information to another company without asking you first. We will always tell you in the unlikely event of your information being shared.

We try not to keep data for any longer than is needed. We will update our database list every 3 years, when you will have a chance to update your details if needed, or request to be removed.  If you would like to be removed at any other time, you can do so by contacting us – The Velcro Collective:  07876 773775 / [email protected]
