Hello Dumbo Feather friends,
The content below is organised as follows:
What is personal information?
Personal information is any information or an opinion about an identified individual, or an individual who is reasonably identifiable, whether the information or opinion is true or not and whether the information or opinion is recorded in a material form or not.
Sensitive information is a form of personal information and it includes information about your race or ethnic origins, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, or details of health, disability or sexual activity or orientation. We will not generally collect sensitive information from you.

Dumbo Feather and its related entities are not responsible for any information you’ve provided in public areas of our site, which may then be collected by other users.

How We Use Your Information

Because most of the information is collected directly from you, you will normally be aware of the purpose of the collection. We take all reasonable steps to ensure the information held is accurate, up-to-date, complete, relevant and not misleading.
Sometimes we might use the personal information we collect for a secondary purpose that is, for use in a way that is different from the primary purpose. We will only do this where:

How We Protect the Information Collected
We take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, interference and loss and unauthorised modification, access or disclosure. The electronic database that holds the information is designed to restrict access to unauthorised persons.
The Internet is not secure and personal information you send to us via the Internet is done so at your own risk, so always be conscious of this.
Where we no longer require your personal information for a permitted purpose and it is not required to be retained by law, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify it.
We have internal processes in place to deal with any data breaches. Where there has been unauthorised access or disclosure of personal information and this access is likely to result in serious harm, we will, as soon as practicable possible, investigate the matter in an attempt to mitigate any harm caused.
We will take reasonable steps to notify you if your information has been affected in this way.

If the GDPR applies to us, we will comply with the data handling regime in respect of any personal data of data subjects (residents) in the European Union that we may obtain.

The types of information we may collect from European Union residents include:
