Where we process your personal information for our Legitimate Interests, we will carefully consider any impact on you and will not use your personal information where such impact overrides our interests.

Retaining your personal information

We will keep your data from phone calls, emails, social media messages and letters in line with our data retention policy, and no longer than is required for us to produce and manage the content for which we have collected your data. Your data will then be destroyed. The periods for which your data will be held can be obtained from the production team of the programme you have contacted.

Sharing your information

The information you provide will not be shared with anyone outside the production team of the programme you have contacted.
In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.

Your rights and more information

You can:

  • access and obtain a copy of your data on request;

  • object to the processing of your data where Somethin’ Else is relying on its legitimate interests as the legal ground for processing.

If you have any questions about how we handle your personal information, or if you would like to exercise any of these rights, or if you believe that Somethin’ Else has not complied with your data protection rights, please contact us at [email protected].

If you raise a complaint with Somethin’ Else about the way we have handled your personal information and you are dissatisfied with our response, you are entitled to lodge a concern with a supervisory authority.
