Hammerpuzzle Privacy Policy

With the changes to General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), we’re required to clarify what personal information we hold about you, why we store it and how we store it

Regarding reasons for processing, GDPR sets out 6 reasons why data may be processed. These are:

  • Legal obligation (where the law requires it)
  • Vital interests (to protect someone’s life)
  • Public task (to perform a task in the public interest or for official functions)
  • Legitimate interests (necessary for your legitimate interests unless there is a good reason to protect the individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests)

We collect data via these methods:

  • Through hard-copy evaluation forms at our events

We collect data for these purposes:

  • To keep audiences informed about Hammerpuzzle news
