General Privacy & Mailing
We are firmly committed to respecting the privacy of our clients. If you are on our mailing list you will only receive communications from us that we believe are relevant to your interests, In essence, this is our occasional Newsletter, distributed to Subscribers roughly six times each year. In addition, on rare occasions, we may advise Subscribers of very special news, such as the launch of a new fair or the unexpected cancellation of a scheduled event.
Subscribers can remove themselves at any time from our list either by sending us a message via our Contact us page, by sending a blank email with “Unsubscribe Mailing List” in the subject line, or by clicking the Unsubscribe link in any of our mailings. Subscribers may also update their preferences, and amend their contact details, through the similar link that appears at the foot of all our mailings.

The Valuation Roadshow
Appraisals and valuations offered by the Valuation Roadshow experts at one of Retro Ronnie’s events are offered in good faith, and to the best of their knowledge. Valuations are offered freely, and with no associated obligation. The value of collectibles can vary over time, and some may decline, while others appreciate. Such trends are beyond the control of anyone associated with Retro Ronnie Fairs, and should be taken into account when following up an appraisal. Valuations offered by the experts in the Valuation Roadshow may not be acceptable for insurance or probate purposes. The value of an item on the open “retail” market will not be the same as that offered under trade circumstances, and owners are asked to consider this should they decide to sell their collectible subsequently. The experts assisting at the Valuation Roadshow cannot be held responsible for errors or mistakes, and their valuations are in no way binding or guaranteed.

For the purposes of GDPR, Personal Data means any information capable of identifying you an individual. That may be a named specific email address, your postal address, order details for a service we may have provided, and so forth. We may process the following categories of personal data about you, depending upon what our relationship has been:
- Communication Data. This includes any communication that you send to us whether that be through the Contact page on our website, through email, text, social media messaging, social media posting or any other communication that you send us. We process this data for the purposes of communicating with you, for record keeping and for the establishment, pursuance or defence of legal claims. Our lawful ground for this processing is our Legitimate Interests, which in this case are to reply to communications sent to us, to keep records and to establish, pursue or defend legal claims.
- Customer Data. This includes data relating to any purchases of goods or services from Retro Ronnie, such as a booking a pitch at one of our Fairs, the purchase or sale of items etc. This may include name, title, billing address, email address, phone number, contact details, purchase details and payment details, where appropriate. We process this data to supply the goods and/or services that have been purchased from us and to keep records of such transactions. In addition, we also hold personal data associated with Subscribers to our Newsletter. This comprises email address, forename and surname only, and is only used for this purpose. Our lawful ground for this processing is the performance of a contract between you and us and/or taking steps at your request to enter into such a contract.

Our lawful ground for this processing is our Legitimate Interests, which in this case are to enable us to administer our website and our business correctly and efficiently, and to grow our business and to decide our marketing strategy.
- In theory, we could use Customer Data, User Data, Technical Data and Marketing Data to deliver relevant website content and advertisements to you (including Facebook adverts or other display advertisements) and to measure or understand the effectiveness of the advertising we serve you. However, we do not, in practice, employ this data for promotional or martketing purposes, and consider it unlikely that we ever shall. Our lawful ground for this is either Consent or Legitimate Interests (namely to grow our business)

If you don’t provide us with the requested data, we may have to cancel a product or service you have ordered but if we do, we will notify you at the time.
We will only use your personal data for the purpose for which it was collected, or for a reasonably compatible purpose if necessary. For more information on this please Contact us. In case we need to use your details for an unrelated new purpose we will let you know and explain the legal grounds for processing.

We may receive data from third parties such as analytics providers, including Google, based outside the EU, advertising networks such as Facebook based outside the EU, search information providers such as Google based outside the EU, providers of technical, payment and delivery services, such as data brokers or aggregators.
Disclosure of your Personal Data
Under normal circumstances, we will not disclose or share your Personal Data with anyone else. However, there may be rare occasions when this is either necessary, or our legal obligation. This may include:
- Other companies who provide services to us and facilitiate our provision of our services to you. This may, for example, include venue administrators or third parties offering services at one of our fairs.
- Service providers who provide IT and system administration services.
- Professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers.
- Government bodies that may require us to report processing activities.
We require all third parties to whom we transfer your data to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We only allow such third parties to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions. We would not transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area.
We have put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, altered, disclosed, or accessed without authorisation. We also allow access to your personal data only to those employees and partners who have a business need to know such data. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they must keep it confidential.
We have procedures in place to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach if we are legally required to.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. When deciding what is the correct period for keeping the data, we look at its amount, nature and sensitivity, potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure, the processing purposes, if these can be achieved by other means and legal requirements. For tax purposes the law requires us to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after they stop being customers. In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Your Legal Rights
Under data protection laws you have rights in relation to your personal data that include the right to request access, correction, erasure, restriction, transfer, to object to processing, to portability of data and (where the lawful ground of processing is consent) to withdraw consent. You can find out more about these rights on the ICO website. If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please email us. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive or refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you.
If you are not happy with any aspect of how we collect and use your data, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues. We should be grateful if you would contact us first if you do have a complaint so that we can try to resolve it for you.
