The Depot Music and Arts Trust (TDAAMS) is dedicated to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of information entrusted to it. As part of this fundamental obligation, TDAAMS is committed to the appropriate protection and use of personal information (sometimes referred to as “personally identifiable information” or “PII”) that has been collected online.

We collect only the personal information that is provided voluntarily by visitors to Revolution Creative so members can effectively connect with each other. This information is then made publicly viewable for all logged in members.

Please review this Privacy Statement (“Privacy Statement”) to learn more about how we collect, use, share and protect the PII that we have obtained.

1. Collection and use of personal information

We obtain personal information about you if you choose to provide it – for example, to contact us or to register to use the Revolution Creative platform. By registering to use Revolution Creative, you are also agreeing to the use of this information in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Your personal information is not used for other purposes, unless we obtain your permission, or unless otherwise required or permitted by law. For example, if you send us an email message to enquire about Revolution Create, we will use your email address and other information you supply to respond to your request.

Or, if a Creative Seeker wishes to contact a Creative, they will be able to view their email or phone number (depending on which form of contact the user has made their default). Likewise if a Creative wishes to contact another Creative, their information will be visible.

We only collect the personal information necessary for registration. Where additional, optional information is sought, you will be notified of this at the point of collection.
