Ketso’s Privacy Policy (over and above for use of this website)

Brief summary

We collect, store and use identifiable information in order to deliver our products and services, including free services we offer as part of our mission as a social business.
We will treat your information with respect and will not share your information with other parties for any purposes not explicitly stated in this agreement.

How and when do we collect identifiable information?

When you:

  • Email us with a query about Ketso
  • Sign-up to email updates
  • Book a place on an event we are hosting or organising
  • Exchange information in person at an event
  • Submit a query through from our web form
  • Purchase a product from us
  • Visit this website (the specific privacy policy for the website is discussed in the first part of this policy above)


What information do we hold?

The information is likely to include: your name, job title, email address, organisation, organisation type, region, your sector and what interactions you have had with Ketso – e.g. are you a customer, have you attended an event that we hosted?

How will we use the information about you?

We collect information about you to process your request, such as sending you information about Ketso that is relevant to an order or an event booking, and, if you agree, emailing you about events, free resources and updates that we think may be of legitimate interest to you based upon the information you have shared with us.

You can update your mailing preferences and opt in or out at any time by clicking on the button that comes with our email updates, or by emailing us at office [at] with the subject line ‘No Ketso updates please’.


Who we share your data with

We will not share your information with other companies for marketing purposes.

We may share your data third party service providers who provide services to us which require the processing of personal data – for example, to fulfil your request if you have ordered a kit, we need to share your shipping address details with the supportive workplace (PaperWorks) that packages and sends Ketso kits they will not have the right to use this data for any other purpose

Data about participants for events we host

Any data we process that is about issues to do with disability would come from requests for access / venue or dietary requirements for events we have hosted. This has come from your act of filling in a booking form. We do not pass that data on to the venues or any other third party, nor do we process that information for any purpose other than to ensure access / adjustments at an event.

Given the nature of the professional, multi-sector cross-sectoral dialogues we occasionally host, we offer to participants the opportunity for us to share their data (usually limited to name, email, organisation, job role) amongst other participants for the purposes of networking. We always ask for explicit permission, both at the event and give an opportunity for you to change your mind by email before we share the data. We remove all data about you if you request not to share your data, before sharing the list.

The outcomes of participatory workshops

We also collect the ideas that participants come up with in the stakeholder events that we run. We have a policy of making these ideas publically available to further creative development of solutions and new ideas. We make it clear in workshops that we will be doing this, and offer the option for you to remove a particular idea before finishing the workshop. We will also respond to corrections and clarifications by email, and add these later.

This workshop data does not contain personally identifiable information apart from occasionally the name of the organiser and facilitator (with their consent) and a website for the host organisation.


The basis on which we process data

We process personally identifiable data on both the basis of consent and legitimate interest.

Consent – We have an opt-in (and easy opt-out) process for receiving occasional updates, which makes it clear what information you are receiving and gives an option for managing your preferences. You can opt in to receive information online through a subscribe button or in paper format (through sign-up sheets at events).

Legitimate interest– if we are running an event, or sending customers their products, we need personal data to know who is coming to the event, where to send information to for the purposes of the event and the transaction. On this basis we may also send product updates that we deem a customer might reasonably need to know about the product.

We work to keep our data up-to-date and accurate, and appreciate any corrections. We will respond to requests to remove personal data. We maintain a record of requests to opt-out of updates and further communication.

You have the right to object to this processing and be removed entirely from our system. Please bear in mind that if you do so, this may affect our ability to perform tasks for your benefit.

Accessing your data

You have the right to access your data. To find out more about how to do this effectively, see this ICO guidance.  We will comply within 40 days, and will charge a £5 fee for requests for computer records and £10 for requests for a combination of digital and paper information.

How is your information stored?

Personal data is stored and processed on Ketso’s behalf by a range of software packages, data stores and organisations, in accordance with this privacy policy. These providers cannot use your data for any other purpose, other than that set out in their contract with Ketso. Therefore, they cannot contact you or sell your data to others.


What data breach procedures we have in place

We take reasonable steps to protect the personal data collected against loss, misuse, unauthorised use, access, inadvertent disclosure, alteration and destruction. However, no network, server, database, Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us electronically and when disclosing personal information.
