Who are we?
Disability Arts Cymru (DAC) is the lead organisation for disability and the arts in Wales. We support approximately 400 members across four regions, helping them to achieve their creative aspirations, develop new work and engage in creative practice. We also act as an advocacy agency and as a training specialist providing DET (Disability Equality Training) and MHFA (Mental Health First Aid) to a range of arts and third sector organisations.
We are collecting your data to keep you informed about the projects that we support; including DAC self produced work and that of our members and other arts organisations in Wales. We want to tell you what information we will be keeping about you, why we keep this information, how long we will keep it and what we will use it for – with your consent.
The information we collect is what you choose to provide to us. This can include:
- Your name
- Your address
- Your telephone number
- Your email address
- Social media handles;
- Your feedback and comments
- Any additional information you choose to provide
How information about you will be used
DAC complies with its obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by keeping your personal data up to date, by storing and destroying it securely, by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.
We do this by:
- Storing your data on a secure database which can only be accessed by appropriately trained staff.
- Keeping your personal data for no longer than reasonably necessary and only retaining your data for the period that you are subscribed.
- Removing your personal data from our database and erasing it from our records when you unsubscribe.
Will anyone else get to see your information?
If you have provided feedback at an event, this response may be reproduced, either in summary or verbatim, on our social media platforms or any research and impact case studies that are published on our website or in academic papers and journals. However, these responses will be anonymised, so that personal details will never be provided in conjunction with feedback responses.
DAC will not pass on your personal data to third parties without first obtaining your consent.
When will we contact you?
- The personal details you provide us may be used to keep you updated about projects that we are currently working on. We may do this by letter, telephone, social media channels or email.

If your data is to be used for something other than what we have already covered here.
If we wish to use your personal data for a new purpose, not covered by this Privacy Notice, then we will provide you with a new notice explaining this and how to opt in.
