SPRITE+ Privacy Policy

We collect and store the minimum information necessary for us to carry out our functions and to enable you to participate in SPRITE+ activities. We keep your information until you tell us to remove it, or until the SPRITE+ grant ends (31 August 2023), whichever is earlier.

Joining SPRITE+

If you join SPRITE+ as a member, a Fellow, or a representative of a Project Partner, you will have the opportunity to join our email lists and to register on SPRITEHub.

If you request to join our information lists, we will use this information to sign you up to that group. In order to do this we necessarily have to share your details with the list server service: JiscMail. The information list is managed within the membership database; this list is used for providing details about SPRITE+ news and events.

As a member, you will be invited to create a profile on our SPRITEHub website. You can choose what information to share about yourself and your research, and with whom. You can edit or delete your profile or change your settings at any time by logging into SPRITEHub.

Our website (SPRITEHub) uses a number of plugins for functionality, and has its own Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy.

Attendance at SPRITE+ workshops and events

When SPRITE+ holds in-person events, such as workshops and lectures, we typically collect information on participants including:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Place of Work
  • Work sector
  • Interest and experience in the topic of the event.

The data may be processed using the online event management tool Eventbrite. The data is not shared with any other third parties. The information might be kept for post-event communications (e.g. the circulation of slides) but will be deleted within six months.

Emailing SPRITE+

The SPRITE+ email account admin@spritehub.org is hosted by Google and accessed only by the SPRITE+ Project Manager and Director. We retain emails as long as we need to in order to carry out our activities.

Legal basis for processing your personal data
