The Oxford Real Farming Conference (ORFC) is a project of The Real Farming Trust.
This Policy sets out how we, The Real Farming Trust (charity number 1061607, company number 3336839), collect and process data and your rights regarding how your personal information is used.
All questions regarding this Policy should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
This Policy covers our website and any communications or services that we offer.
We will post any changes and updates to this Policy on this page so please visit this page regularly to make sure you are aware of any updates. We will communicate significant changes in this Policy to you by contacting you through the format to which you have agreed.
This policy was last updated in April 2018.
We will always make clear to you at the time when we collect any personal data the legal basis on which we will process that data. We will process your data on the basis of:
- Your explicit consent eg when you sign up to a newsletter; or
- A contractual relationship eg when you buy tickets for an event, or where you are employed or volunteer for us; or
- Legitimate interest eg responding to enquiries, IT security, fraud prevention, maintaining “do not contact” lists; or
- A legal obligation eg if we are required to disclose the information to regulatory or government bodies eg HMRC, or when required to do so by the courts
We only collect the data that we need including data that will help us improve and administer our services. We collect two kinds of information:
Information such as IP addresses (the location of the computer on the internet), pages accessed and files downloaded. This helps us to analyse how people use our website. We will not link this to you individually.
Personal information such as your name, the organisation you work for, email and postal address, phone number, job description. You don’t have to disclose this information to browse our site, however you may not be able to access some of our services unless you disclose some or all of this information.
Very occasionally we may combine the personal information you have given us with information available in the public domain to create a profile of your interests and preferences where they are relevant to us. We may gather this information from publicly available sources such as Companies House, the electoral register and the media. You can opt-out of your personal information being used for profiling or analysis by contacting us at email@example.com
Use of Data
We use your data only to provide the service that you have requested and communicate with you in the way that you have agreed to eg we will specifically ask you to consent to us contacting you by a particular method eg email, phone.
We may use third party processors through which we send out our newsletter, sell tickets and process and analyse the data we collect.
We will only share data where we are required to do so by law or with our third party processors. Personal data will not be transferred outside of the European Economic Area unless the country or territory that it is transferred to is considered to have adequate protection for the rights and freedoms of data subjects in relation to the processing of data as detailed in the guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-data-protection/principle-8-international/
We will never sell or swap your information with other organisations to use for their marketing.

Where do we store your data?
We have measures in place to prevent the loss, destruction, misuse, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of or access to your personal information. Information we collect can only be accessed by authorised personel who agree to abide by this policy.
Unfortunately, the transmission of data across the internet is not completely secure and whilst we do our best to protect your information, we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of data will not occur whilst data is being transferred.
How long will we keep your data?
We will keep your information only for as long as we need it to provide you with the services and information you have requested from us. This means eg for newsletters we will periodically review the consent that you have given us and ask for re-consent, and for delegates to events we will only hold personal data beyond the event in order to enable us to analyse delegate engagement and to help us improve future events.
If you would like any further information about how we use and store your information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
