Policies

Welcome to Gastronomicagency Privacy Policy

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet . The graphic and typographic operators know this well, in reality all the professions dealing with the universe of communication have a stable relationship with these words, but what is it? Lorem ipsum is a dummy text without any sense.

  • It is a sequence of Latin words that, as they are positioned, do not form sentences with a complete sense, but give life to a test text useful to fill spaces that will subsequently be occupied from ad hoc texts composed by communication professionals.
  • It is certainly the most famous placeholder text even if there are different versions distinguishable from the order in which the Latin words are repeated.

  • Lorem ipsum contains the typefaces more in use, an aspect that allows you to have an overview of the rendering of the text in terms of font choice and font size .

  • When referring to Lorem ipsum, different expressions are used, namely fill text fictitious text blind text or placeholder text : in short, its meaning can also be zero, but its usefulness is so clear as to go through the centuries and resist the ironic and modern versions that came with the arrival of the web.

3. MARKETING

Demos will ask for individuals to “opt-in” for most communications. This includes all our marketing communications (the term marketing is broadly defined and covers information shared in our newsletter.)

We use personal data to communicate with people, to promote Demos and to help with fundraising activities. This includes keeping you up to date with information from Demos on our research, events, news, job opportunities and other information relating to our work.

You can decide not to receive communications or change how we contact you at any time. If you wish to do so please contact us by emailing hello@demos.co.uk, writing to Demos, 76 Vincent Square, London SW1P 2PD or telephoning 020 3878 3955 (Lines open 9.30am – 6pm, Mon – Fri).

What does ‘marketing’ mean?

Marketing does not just mean offering things for sale, but also includes news and information about:

our research programme, including details of recent reports or blogs;
our events and activities; and
job opportunities.
When you receive a communication, we may collect information about how you respond to or interact with that communication, and this may affect how we communicate with you in future.

4. HOW WE PROTECT DATA

We employ a variety of physical and technical measures to keep your data safe and to prevent unauthorised access to, or use or disclosure of your personal information.

Electronic data and databases are stored on secure computer systems and we control who has access to information (using both physical and electronic means). Our staff receive data protection training and we have a set of detailed data protection procedures which personnel are required to follow when handling personal data.

Payment security

All electronic Demos forms that request financial data use pass your details to our payment provider (Stripe Payments Europe: https://stripe.com/gb/privacy; https://stripe.com/privacy-shield-policy). Demos complies with the payment card industry data security standard (PCI-DSS) published by the PCI Security Standards Council, and will never store card details. If you would rather make a payment through BACS or by cheque please contact us by emailing hello@demos.co.uk, writing to Unit 1, Lloyd’s Wharf, 2-3 Mill Street, London SE1 2BD or telephoning 020 3878 3955 (Lines open 9.30am – 6pm, Mon – Fri).

4.KEEPING YOU IN CONTROL

We want to ensure you remain in control of your personal data. Part of this is making sure you understand your legal rights, which are as follows:

  • the right to confirmation as to whether or not we have your personal data and, if we do, to obtain a copy of the personal information we hold (this is known as subject access request);
  • the right to have your data erased (though this will not apply where it is necessary for us to continue to use the data for a lawful reason);
  • the right to have inaccurate data rectified;
  • the right to object to your data being used for marketing or profiling; and
    where technically feasible, you have the right to personal data you have provided to us which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or the performance of a contract. This information will be provided in a common electronic format.

Please keep in mind that there are exceptions to the rights above and, though we will always try to respond to your satisfaction, there may be situations where we are unable to do so

If you would like further information on your rights or wish to exercise them, please write to Demos’ Head of External Affairs, 76 Vincent Square, London, SW1P 2PD or by email; hello@gastronomicagency.com
