Privacy Policy

We are Steph Graham, Adam Cooper and Dana Segal. Together, we are Adapt for Arts. Our Community Interest Company registration number is 09560985 and we are based at 152 Parkville Rd, Manchester M20 4TY (although we work all over the UK).

How we use your data

All three of us control the data we have. No one else gets their mitts on it. We collect your Name, Email Address, Contact Number (if you give it to us), and collect information about your work (such as Job Title or Organisation) if you contact us about doing some work with you.

We store this information in two places: on our newsletter software (Mailchimp) and in our financial operating system (QuickBooks). Both things are totally secure and have their own privacy terms and conditions.

We won’t do much with your data, other than:

  • Keep in touch with you via mailings related to general news and events

  • Email you personally about something we think is of specific interest to you

For anything else, we’ll contact you first to make sure you are happy.

We won’t share your data with any other parties. We will do some analysis on your data – like tracking statistics and effectiveness of communications, such as email newsletter opening rates. We may occasionally report back to funders or partners on that data – but it will never be individual – just larger numbers. So your personal data won’t be affected at all.

We review our privacy policy about once a year, and may make changes from time to time. If there are any massive ones, we’ll let you know.

We’ll keep your information for as long as is necessary to, and to protect or legal interests (like when HMRC or other bodies need us to report on it). We’ll archive it safely when we don’t need it anymore. 


Steph is gluten-free, so we tend to stay away from cookies generally, but we do use a few. These are detailed in our cookie policy.

Your Rights

According to the law you have the following rights:

• To be informed what personal data we hold about you and/or to obtain access to it;
• To require us not to send you emails;
• To require us to correct the personal data we hold about you if it is inaccurate;
• To require us (in certain circumstances) to erase your personal data;
• To object to any of our particular processing activities where you feel this has a disproportionate impact on your rights.

Please note that the above rights are not absolute, and we may be entitled to refuse requests where exceptions apply: for example if we have reason to believe the personal data we hold is accurate or we can show our processing is necessary for a lawful purpose.
