Who or what is Ben Moor?
For the purposes of this Data and Privacy Notice, Ben Moor is a sole trader business, providing units of entertainment services as an actor and writer, and retailing related products.
You may have seen or heard my work at the theatre, on TV, Film, or Radio.
I perform live shows, and sell merchandise online at the website http://www.spesh.com/ben.
I am not a limited company.
When might I collect your data?
In specific situations, I collect, process, and protect and maintain your data with your explicit consent.
I do this through a Mailing List and when a purchase is made in my Online Shop.
I do not collect any data when you engage with this website.
The main data I maintain is an Electronic Mailing List, which I use to inform interested members of the public about my upcoming projects, to provide them with discounts for my online shop, to provide an entertaining round-up of recent events, and to recommend works by other artists.
To join the Mailing List I always ask for, and receive, your explicit consent:
- At live performances I may invite audience members to join my Mailing List, if I remember. You are invited to write down your electronic mail address in a book that I administer. I do not share this data with the venue, but they may also have their own mailing list to which you may choose to sign-up. I will later send you an electronic mail message to confirm the subscription.
- I have “SUBSCRIBE” links on my website. You are invited to send an electronic mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will later send you an electronic mail message to confirm the subscription.
- When you make a purchase from my online shop, I send an electronic mail message confirming receipt of the purchase and invite the customer to join my Mailing List. If I receive a reply giving me your explicit consent to join, I then transfer the electronic mail address to my Mailing List. I will later send you an electronic mail message to confirm the subscription.
These are all OPT-IN options and are regarded as explicit consent to join the Mailing List, which you can choose to withdraw at any time.
I will not ask for your full name, your geographical location, or any personal details; these are not recorded, and are none of my business.
I never analyse the list to send targeted messages; my only communications are ever with the entire Mailing List as a whole.
I use Blind Carbon Copy addressing, so your address is never shared with any other member of the Mailing List.
The full Mailing List is maintained securely in a Password Protected document and never printed out.
The Online Shop
When you make a purchase from my online shop, your transaction is processed securely by PayPal, and certain data is then sent electronically to email@example.com.
I receive your name and postal address, the electronic mail address you used with PayPal, and a Transaction ID, along with the details of the items purchased, and any dedication you may have asked me to write in a book.
I use this data at the time to communicate with you to confirm your purchase, to inform you of any delivery problems, to create a printed receipt for your purchase, and to send you your items.
I retain a record of payments for tax and accountancy reasons (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) requires me to keep records of contracts, payments and invoices for 7 years), but I WILL NOT send any communications unrelated to your purchase without your explicit consent, and WILL NEVER send any postal communication except the purchased items, or replacement items if necessary.
The data regarding purchases from my online shop is maintained securely in a Password Protected account.
Sharing your data
I WILL NEVER SHARE YOUR DATA WITH ANY THIRD PARTY, FOR ANY COMMERCIAL REASON.
Withdrawal of consent
You always have the power to unsubscribe from the Mailing List, by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with “UNSUBSCRIBE” in the subject line, or by following the link included in the electronic mail message.
But please don't expect a message back confirming you have been unsubscribed, as I believe that you should have the last word.
None of this "Are you sure?" or "Sorry to see you go" or "Tell me why you unsubscribed."
That's really annoying.
It's always a bit sad when I lose someone, but I always erase their electronic mail address the moment I receive the message, and you will never hear from me again.
Website information / Metadata / Cookies
I DO NOT track users to my website.
I DO NOT analyse individual visits.
Frankly, I don't have the time and I'm not particularly nosy. And I think you should be able to do as you please.
I recommend using a VPN to protect your online security.
I believe that by joining my Mailing List you have shown an interest in my work, and are agreeing to be contacted occasionally with information regarding my professional projects.
Commercially, this is useful to me as I can let you know how to buy tickets for my live shows, inform you of my upcoming screen appearances, make recommendations, maybe make you smile a little, and offer you – as a valued customer – discounts on purchases, and previews of future works.
You can ask to see any data I maintain about you at any time, and have it erased should you so wish.
Simply write to email@example.com and I will respond in due course.
I reserve the right to amend this Data and Privacy Notice without notification.
Questions, comments and requests regarding this Data and Privacy Notice are welcome and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
