The purpose of this policy
To fulfil our aims and objectives we need to communicate with a range of people in a variety of ways: face to face, via post, telephone or electronic mail, on social media and through our website. To be effective, we need to collect and store data provided to us by donors, potential donors, supporters of our work, visitors to our website, guests at our events, conservation partners (grantees) and suppliers. This data will always and only be used to further our charitable aim enabling us to increase women’s representation and workplace safety within the fields of film, TV and theatre and advocate for industry change.
This policy explains the nature of the personal data we collect and why we collect it.
Our aim is to ensure that we are transparent and honest about the data we collect, and to give users better understanding and control over the data we maintain about them.
Changes to data protection laws for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are designed to better protect an individual’s privacy and rights regarding the use of their data. TIME’S UP UK is fully committed to protecting the privacy and security of everybody we communicate with.

- monitor usage of our website and social media output, evaluate and improve the content on our website;
- analysis: We may carry out analysis on our supporters and donors to determine the success of our fundraising and events to inform our approach and understand how we can improve our communications and fundraising strategy;
- maintain a list of people who we are in regular communication with;
- maintain a list of people who have opted out of any of our communications so we know not to contact them.
