Privacy Policy


  • If you sign up with us we take great care to keep your information safe.
  • We never share your data with 3rd parties except to help us deliver our own services.
  • We collect anonymous statistics about your visits to our websites, like which pages you viewed.
  • Some 3rd parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited our websites, if you use their services. We can't control them but we don't believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.


If you become a member of Keswick Film Club we will ask you for your consent to store and process the information you supply on the membership form and any alterations you ask us to make to this data.

We do not create supplementary data. Nor do we pass on this information to others except where they are specifically employed to help deliver our own services.

This means that Keswick Film Club has your explicit permission to store your data and use it to contact you by text, email or post with newsletters, the minutes of meetings, and other information and notices.

If the data is incorrect, we will correct it. If you wish to have your data removed we will comply with your request. However, if this happens, we will be unable to send you updates, newsletters or minutes of meetings.

Our Websites


Like many websites we place small files known as cookies on your computer to collect anonymous information about how you browse the site. Find out more about cookies.

Measuring our visitors

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous - so we don't know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.

Facebook, Twitter and other social networks

These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website - such as the "Like" and "Tweet" buttons.

To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you're logged in; for example Facebook use this to say "x of your friends like this". We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you're viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn't to say they do, but their policies may change).

Discussion comments

To allow visitors to discuss some of our web pages we use a discussion system called Disqus.

To do so we embed code that Disqus provide and we do not control ourselves. Disqus anonymously tracks visitors to pages like we do. They also remember who you are if you login to any Disqus service, so you can comment on any website using their tool.

Logging in to Disqus can be done in many ways, including via Facebook. If you login via social network, Disqus will be able to link your activity to that network. In this way, your Disqus activity may be personally identifiable.

Disqus will know what pages you viewed in our site and what you wrote on those comments.

See Disqus's Terms and Policies for more information.


Whilst we take great care to ensure any confidential information remains protected we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.

Policy Updates

We may update these policies from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version. We may also notify you of changes to policies by email.

Any questions?

If you have any questions about this privacy policy or your personal data, please write to us by email to or by post.
