How we use your information
The Bank of England (“we” or the “Bank”) processes your personal data to facilitate your participation in the event or to access a hosted online platform. This information includes your name, email address, age and the region of the UK you live in (if applicable). To attend certain events, we may collect identification or carry out security checks.
If you provide us with information that could be considered to belong to a particular category (for example, information to make special arrangements for access to the building), we will process this data with your explicit consent.
Photos may be taken at the event and then used for reasons of public interest to promote events in support of the Bank’s function. At events where photos will be taken, you will receive verbal or written notice and the opportunity to object to your photo being taken.
We will retain your personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes for which we collect it. When we have identified that it is no longer necessary, we have put in place measures to securely dispose of the personal data.
International transfers of personal data
We use third parties to provide event services to us and your personal data may be transferred outside of the UK. Where your personal data is transferred to a country which is not recognized as providing an adequate level of personal data protection, a valid transfer mechanism is in place to ensure appropriate safeguards for your personal data.
We use Eventbrite, based in the United States, to provide booking solutions for event registration. See their standard contractual clauses for the data transfer mechanism.
