Who we are

Suggested text: Our website address is: https://first-friday.org. We are a volunteer-run networking group, started in 2000 and meeting 10-months a year until Covid curtailed our activity. We are now returning on a bi-monthly basis from 3 Dec 2021 and will respond to what our audience wants in the future.

Cookies & Data

We use minimal functional cookies and the only personal data we collect is given in the attendee booking forms

Who we share your data with

Your data will only be used to process your attendance at the meeting for which you book. Financial data is managed securely by Stripe and is not visible. You email or phone number may be used to contact you in relation to the meeting you have booked. 

We use mailchimp to manage our database of those who have shown an interest in attending. You can unsubscribe through the link at the footer of any broadcase email.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

You can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
