What data do we collect?
GovCamp collects the following data:
- Attendee information (Name, email address, (optional: twitter username), gender, age, any special requirements for health or caring responsibilities)
- Sponsor information (Organisation name, contact name, email address, phone number, amount sponsored)
How do we collect your data?
You directly provide GovCamp with the data we collect via your application to attend and / or sponsor GovCamp.
How will we use your data?
- Attendee information will be used as part of the process of allocation of tickets to GovCamp
- If you have indicated that you are willing to be a camp-maker (on-the-day volunteer) we will contact you via the email address you provide
- Aggregate statistical data generated from individual applications will be used to monitor our allocation mechanism (e.g. for diversity)
- Sponsor information may be used to contact you before and after the event an organisation is sponsoring to discuss present and future sponsorships
We collect attendee data to help make GovCamp as inclusive as possible, understanding if there are particular demographics we are unable to reach and for what reason. We also use this data with event planning. For example, we collect the number of people that would find a creche helpful so that we can plan indicative numbers on the day and find sponsorship to cover this cost.
We will not share data about you with any third parties under any circumstances. Only GovCamp organisers have access to this data. A list of organisers can be found on our website.
How do we store your data?
GovCamp securely stores your data in the cloud using a combination of Google’s G-Suite tools (Docs, Sheets, Forms, etc).
As per Article 5 (e) of the GDPR, GovCamp will keep your data for no longer than the time we need to process it. In practice this means that attendee data is deleted after the event and sponsorship information kept while the conference is still running – so we can contact them again in future.
GovCamp will never send you any marketing materials.
What are your data protection rights?

- The right to access – You have the right to request GovCamp for a copy of your personal data

- The right to erasure – You have the right to request that GovCamp erase your personal data
- The right to restrict processing – You have the right to request that GovCamp restrict the processing of your personal data
- The right to object to processing – You have the right to object to GovCamp’s processing of your personal data (although this will obviously remove your ability to be chosen to attend)
- The right to data portability – You have the right to request that GovCamp transfer the data that we have collected to another organization, or directly to you.
