  • We collect your first name, last name and email address so that we can send you our newsletter.


  • We have signed a Data Agreement with Mailchimp to ensure all information is stored and used correctly, which you can read by clicking the PDF button below. Mailchimp stores their data in the USA but do so in line with EU General Data Protection Regulation regulations.​

  • We keep a record in a password protected document of when you signed up to the newsletter so that in 5 years after the sign up date we can contact you and check if you still want to receive updates from us.

  • You must register yourself to this newsletter and give the necessary permissions.

  • ​You have the right to unsubscribe and have your data removed at any time. 



  • Our hard-copy and digital evaluation forms are very important to the development of Tatwood Puppets and to our funders and sponsors. On our evaluation forms we will ask you a number of questions about our work and collect some of your data.

  • We collect your first name, last name and postcode through both our online and offline evaluation forms.

  • We do not sign you up to our online Mailchimp newsletter through this method - you must sign up yourself through our website. To be transparent about this we do not collect email addresses on our evaluations. 

  • We collect your postcode so that we can map our audience reach but do not publish individual postcodes anywhere online or offline. We use this data to present our audience reach in graphs or a map, which will be shared online and with our funders and sponsors. This presentation of information does not include your specific postcodes, but instead marks towns and cities where audiences have travelled from. 

  • Your first and last name is not published anywhere, but is kept in a password protected document for administration purposes only.
