Privacy Policy

  1. We Respect Your Right To Privacy

If we ask you for any personal information, such as your email address, it is because we need it in order to be able this to contact you regarding Project: Great Interactions. We will never give or sell your information to anyone else. We value your trust in sharing your life experiences with us for this project, and we respect your right to control your personal data and digital content.

  1. We Are Transparent

We will not use your data or digital content for any hidden purpose. We strive to make our language clear and easy to understand, instead of using complex legal jargon that leaves you feeling confused. If you feel that we could do better at this, please email Lucy at and we’ll do everything we can to improve our service for you. You can also go to our Twitter feed @gr8interactions if you need to ask for help.

  1. Your Photographs Belong To You

For the purposes of this project, we are asking you to share photographs of your life with us. We will share this content on social media and on this blog, and we may use your photographs in newspaper stories about this project, or on the blogs run by the MacIntyre Charity or the National Media Museum, in order to illustrate the project. By participating in the project, you grant us the right to use your photographs in this way.

But you still own your photographs. This means that we cannot use your photographs to make money for us. And it means that we can’t use your photographs in any other way.

We will strive to make sure that any time we use your photographs we will include a credit naming you as the creator. If you do not wish to be known as the creator of the photograph, then please ask us not to use your name; we’ll understand.

  1. We Keep Our Messages Relevant

As part of the project, you have been asked whether you might like to subscribe to the National Media Museum and/or MacIntyre Charity mailing lists. If you choose to sign up to either of those lists, we want to engage with you. Our messages are not just marketing.

By entering the prize draw, you are consenting to be added to the mailing list for the National Media Museum.  We intend our emails to be useful to you in keeping up to date on news in the Arts and, specifically, in hearing about the latest exhibitions and events held at NMM.

If you sign up for the MacIntyre Charity mailing list, we intend for that to be useful to you in keeping up to date with the fantastic work MacIntyre does to support people with learning disabilities.

If you decide that our messages are not relevant to you, then you are welcome to opt-out of receiving them and we’ll respect that.

  1. We Are Careful In Only Partnering With Organisations We Can Trust

This project is a collaboration between several organisations and individuals. This is an important decision in order to make the project a success. But we have been careful to ensure that any individual or organisation working on this project is trustworthy and shares our commitment to the values listed in this Privacy Policy and in the Project’s Terms and Conditions. We don’t share data more than is absolutely necessary, and we’ll be just as careful in our decisions to share information with any other organisations, such as newspapers choosing to write about this project.

  1. Cookies – We Use Them As Little As Possible

Cookies are little pieces of code used to track visitors to websites. They can be really useful, but sometimes they are just used to place advertising. We have not installed any cookies on this blog. We have no reason to track your internet use.

But may use cookies in order to e.g. remember who you are if you visit this blog while signed in to WordPress. And the Rafflecopter widget that we have chosen to use for keeping a record of entries may also use cookies to remember who you are so that you can return to the Rafflecopter widget on a different day to enter the project again. We have no control over these cookies, but we feel they are reasonable and without using WordPress and Rafflecopter, it would not be possible for us to run this project.
