Your personal data – what is it?

“Personal data” is any information about a living individual which allows them to be identified from that data (for example a name, photographs, videos, email address, or address). Identification can be directly using the data itself or by combining it with other information which helps to identify a living individual. The processing of personal data is governed by legislation relating to personal data which applies in the United Kingdom including the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR) and other legislation relating to personal data and rights such as the Human Rights Act.

WWOD collects and uses information about people with whom it communicates.

This personal information must be dealt with properly and securely, however, it is collected, recorded and used – whether on paper, in a computer, or recorded on other material – and there are safeguards to ensure this in the GDPR.

WWOD regards the lawful and correct treatment of personal information as very important to the successful and efficient performance of its functions, and to maintain the confidence of those with whom it deals.

To this end WWOD fully endorses and adheres to the Principles of Data Protection, as set out in the GDPR.


The purpose of collecting and controlling your personal data is to communicate to you news, reviews, and updates from the WWOD on the dance industry, where it is deemed to be relevant and of legitimate interest to you.

Failure to adhere to GDPR is unlawful and could result in legal action being taken against WWOD.


GDPR regulates the processing of information relating to living and identifiable individuals (data subjects). This includes the obtaining, holding, using or disclosing of such information, and covers computerized records as well as manual filing systems and card indexes.

Data users must comply with the data protection principles of good practice which underpin GDPR. To comply with the law, information must be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed to any other person unlawfully.
