1.0 PRIVACY AND DATA PROTECTION PHILOSOPHY
The protection of personal data is a top priority for Spiral Studios. We care about the people whose data we collect. We will avoid unnecessary communications wherever possible and we will not collect or process your personal data unless absolutely required. We will never distribute, sell or make public your personal information.
2.0 GDPR COMPLIANCE
The General Data Protection Regulation issued by the European Union (“GDPR”) and effective 25 May 2018, is a further evolutionary step in the protection of the privacy rights of individuals. This includes but is not limited to tighter restrictions around consent, the right to be forgotten, the type and amount of personal data that can be utilised, data access and security. Many of these protections are in line the existing UK Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) with which we make every effort to comply. This website is designed to comply with both national and international legislation.
