We take your privacy very seriously. This Privacy Notice sets out our duties to you when you use our website and when we provide services to you.

It is important that you read this Privacy Notice so that you are aware of how and why we are collecting and using your personal data. The Privacy Notice describes how we collect and use personal data about you during and after your relationship with us, in accordance with data protection law; the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA). 

Sharon Stacey trading as Sharon Stacey Music of info@sharonstaceymusic.com is the controller for the purposes of Data Protection compliance. In this Privacy Notice, references to ‘us’, ‘our’ or ‘we’ are to Sharon Stacey Music as controller. Everything that we do with your personal data – for example storing it, working with it, sharing it or deleting it – is referred to as “processing”.

We respect your right to privacy. Data Protection legislation requires us to follow security procedures regarding the collection, storage and disclosure of personal data in order to avoid unauthorised loss or access. As such we ensure both we and our third-party service providers have implemented industry-standard security systems and procedures to protect information from unauthorised disclosure, misuse or destruction. We have procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.


Sharon Stacey Music may collect and process the following data about you:

  • ACTIVE INFORMATION COLLECTION: Like many websites, this Website actively collects information from its visitors by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail and enquiry forms. Some of the information that you voluntarily submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, age, date of birth, equality and diversity information, place of work).  We also collect such personally identifiable information when you report a problem with this Website.

You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required, and what information is optional.
