What Personal Data do we process for The Back Yourself Show and why?

When you register to receive our emails we will collect your email address. 

We will ask you for your consent to email you information all about Stakester’s products and news in the future. The data processed for this purpose will be your name and email address only.

When you register to present a pitch we will collect your full name, email address, company name and website, linkedin profile, year the business started operating, job title and elevator pitch.

We collect this data in order to understand if your pitch is suitable for the show and to determine your suitability to participate in it.

 Our lawful basis for processing this data is legitimate interest. 

If you are successful in being selected for the podcast then we process your video image and voice recording plus name and credentials and any personal data disclosed in the podcast.

Who else gets your data?

Like most companies, we use other companies as part of our data processing, for example cloud services and technology services. We have Data Processing Agreements in place with these providers. Where data is transferred outside of the UK or EEA, we ensure that appropriate protection and mechanisms are in place, for example Standard Contractual Clauses. If data is transferred from the UK to the EEA then it is done so on the basis of those countries having a comparable data protection regime to the UK or equivalent safeguards.. 

We do not sell your data to anybody.

How long do we hold the data for?

Data held for marketing purposes will be held until you ask to opt out of marketing.

We will hold the data regarding your pitch proposal until either a negative decision is reached, or if a positive decision is reached then we will hold that, along with the recording of your podcast for the life of the podcast.
