At Sober & Social, we value our personal privacy and we know you do too.
We wouldn’t want our personal information to be shared without our permission.
We expect companies and organisations that we deal with to treat our personal data with total respect and confidentiality.
For us, protecting your personal information is extremely important and forms part of our respectful relationship with you.
At Sober & Social, we treat your personal data how we expect ours to be treated.

- We will protect any personal data we hold.
- We are confident that third parties who may have access to your personal data (for example, website hosting companies, payment processing companies), have robust privacy policies which protect your data.
- We will always ask your permission if we need to share your information with a third party in order to fulfil a contract or service you have requested.
- We’re always happy to tell you what personal information we have about you.

Why we hold your personal data
We only collect personal data for legitimate business purposes.
We need your personal details if you’ve asked us to keep you informed about Sober & Social and the events we organise
We need to be able to get in touch with you to answer your queries, and provide any information you have requested.
We consider these to be legitimate consensual reasons for holding your personal data.
What personal data do we hold?
We usually contact people by phone or email and we may sometimes post information if this is convenient for you.
So, as well as your name, we may hold your email address, telephone number and postal address.
We will never sell your information to a third party.
We may need to pass your details to a third party, for example if you want us to arrange for something to be delivered, we may use a third party. We’ll ask your permission before we do this.
Your details may also be shared with third parties who carry out services on our behalf, for example, processing payments, booking venues etc., but we only work with reputable companies and venues who should never sell your data or use your data to contact you directly.
We may also be legally required to share your data if we are involved with any legal proceedings which include contracts with you.
Financial information – if you pay us by credit card or bank transfer, we will not keep your bank or card details once the transaction has been successfully processed.
Where we store your data
Sober & Social holds your personal data in files created by us and not accessible to anyone outside our organisation.
However, we do use some services and applications from third party suppliers which means some of your data may be stored outside the European Economic Area (EEA). The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.
Obviously, we only work with reputable companies and venues who have robust data security policies and procedures, and we take all reasonable steps to ensure you data is treated as safely and securely as it would be within the UK.
Staying in Touch
At Sober & Social, we want to build lasting relationships with you and we’re always keen to stay in touch.
We will always ask you if you’re happy for us to send you information and keep you posted on what we’re up too here at Sober & Social.
And, if you ever ask us to stop contacting you – we will!

Treating your personal information with respect and earning your trust is incredibly important to us at Sober & Social.
