How We Use Your Data
We use your email as part of a Bulk Group/Distribution list to inform you of the following: Updates about Bristol Crossroads such as meeting reminders, special guests etc. Updates about other TG events locally and further afield by sending you the monthly What’s On listing and occasional one off emails about events that come to our notice too late to go on the list. Occasional we forward emails from third parties, such as media companies or research students requesting help with surveys, research, programmes/articles on TG matters. The Bulk Group/Distribution list is always blind copied on any email so that no one else can see the email addresses on the list. The third party emails are reviewed. Research projects are independently verified by contacting the researcher’s supervisor (via the institutions web site, not the contact provided by the student). They must confirm that the project has passed the ethical committee of the institute, that permission forms will be supplied and that all materials will be destroyed once the project is completed before being forwarded to the Bulk Group/Distribution list. The subject matter of any media requests is considered and rejected if it is felt it would lead to potential harm to the TG person or their family.

We Don’t...
Give or sell your data to any third party. Requests by individuals for another individuals email are dealt with by: Getting further permission of the requester to forward their mail on to the person they wish to contact. That person can then decide if they want to allow the contact by emailing the requester directly.

Data Subject Access Request
At any time you can request an update to your data we hold such as: - Why we hold your data and what we are doing with it - What type of data we hold on you - The third parties you have disclosed the data to - How long we will be keeping you data for and why. You can also ask for your data: - To be deleted or modified - To be passed on to a third party of your choice.

Unsubscribing
You can unsubscribe from the Bulk Group/Distribution list by sending an email to the address at the bottom of any group email.

Photographs
Before any photograph is taken at a Bristol Crossroads event, all attendees will be forewarned and given the opportunity to move out of shot, or turn their back on the photographer. If you appear in a photograph that is published on the Bristol Crossroads website you can request its removal by contacting us and we will remove it as soon as we can. Sometimes photos may be used to support articles in TG magazines, or on their websites. The same warnings will always be given before photos are taken for this purpose and an additional warning given that it may be used in third party publications (hard copy and/or websites).
