Information Sign Up

As part of the registration process for more information, we collect personal information (eg. name, phone number, email).
We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about what is happening at WILD BELFAST; and occasionally other news from other linked organisations that we feel is of interest, but principally to tell you about other events; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
At present we are building our records as a relatively new project, but in future we may use an established third-party provider (such as MailChimp or a box office system) to deliver our e-newsletter or to process ticket sales. We may gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our services. If we choose to use a third party provider in future we will publish their own privacy policy here and we will send you notification of this in advance if you are on our contact list.
