At Hot Aire! we collect a limited amount of personal data as part of our ‘legitimate interest’ in running the bands. We will ask for your name and contact details  in order to update your subscription record and also your Gift Aid record if you are a UK taxpayer and you would like the band to claim Gift Aid on your subs. Membership and Gift Aid data are collected and stored using Google Workspace which is Google’s commercial service and is GDPR compliant.  Read about Google’s approach to the General Data Protection Regulation and Google Workspace security and compliance.

We maintain an email list, using MailChimp, to circulate information about concerts, rehearsals, meetings and social events. We ask you to subscribe to this yourself, through the website, and you can unsubscribe at any time. If you choose to unsubscribe then you will not receive emails from Hot Aire! or Fresh Aire!.  Read about MailChimp and GDPR compliance.

We will never pass your membership data to any other organisation (apart from the Inland Revenue for Gift Aid) and we will never use it for anything other than Hot Aire! or Fresh Aire! business.

When we organise residential events or tours then we will ask for additional data (such as passport details if we are travelling overseas) and also for information about diet and any health issues that you need to disclose. Some of this information will be passed to organisations such as the tour operator or to the hotel where we are staying. Hot Aire!  will not retain this data after the specific tour or residential for which it was provided.

We use photographs and videos of the band on our website and social media. Although we ask for your permission to do this, you may want a photo or video to be removed. Please use this form to contact the website manager.
