2. What personal data we collect and how we use it
What we need
NG Culture Kids Ltd is what’s known as the ‘controller’ of the personal data you provide to us. We will usually collect basic personal data about you like your name, telephone number, and email address.
Why we need it
We collect your personal data in connection with specific activities, such as feedback, event registration, competition entries, information you provide on our sites and applications.
The information is either needed to fulfil your request or to enable us to provide you with a more personalised service. You don't have to disclose any of this information to browse our sites. However, if you choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with certain services.
Sometimes, with your consent, we will process your personal data to provide you with information about our work or our activities that you have requested or are expecting.
On other occasions, we may process personal data when we need to do this to fulfil a contract or where we are required to do this by law or other regulations.
We also process your data when it is in our legitimate interests to do this and when these interests do not override your rights. Those legitimate interests include providing you with information on our services, products, feedback, competitions and other activities and those of other carefully selected organisations.
How we obtain your details
We will also hold information about your details so that we can respect your preferences for being contacted by us.
We collect your personal information in a number of ways:
When you provide it to us directly.
When you provide permission to other organisations to share it with us (including Facebook or Twitter).
All the EEA data subject personal data we process is processed in the UK however for the purposes of IT hosting and maintenance your information may be situated outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). This will be done in accordance with guidance issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office.
If you would like to change the way you hear from us or no longer wish to receive direct marketing communications from then email HQ@nigerianculturekids.com.
3. Legitimate interests
We have a number of lawful reasons that mean we can use (or 'process') your personal information. One lawful reason is something called 'legitimate interests'. Broadly speaking Legitimate Interests means we can process your personal information if:
We have a genuine and legitimate reason.
We are not harming any of your rights and interests.
4. Sharing your information

If we merge with another organisation to form a new entity, information may be transferred to the new entity.
And, we will never sell or rent your personal information to other organisations.
5. Retaining your information
We hold your information only as long as necessary for each purpose we use it. If you would like a copy of our retention policy contact: HQ@nigerianculturekids.com.

How long do cookies last?
When a web server sends a cookie, it asks your browser to keep that particular cookie until a certain date and time. These dates can be:
Some date in the future – which might be a few minutes or a few hours from now (to track something like your shopping cart in an online store). The cookie might expire many years in the future, to keep track of your browser for a long time.
When you close your browser – this is called a session cookie, the next time you start your browser these will have vanished.
Some date in the past – this is how the server asks a browser to remove a previously-stored cookie.
Our own cookies
Remembering if you have accepted our terms and conditions.
Allowing you to add comments to our site.
Remembering if we have already asked you certain questions (e.g. you declined to use our app or take our survey).
There is no way to prevent these cookies being set other than to not use our site.
Site improvement cookies
We regularly test new designs or site features on our sites. We may do this by showing slightly different versions of our websites to different people and anonymously monitoring how our site visitors respond to these different versions. Ultimately this helps us to offer you a better website experience.
Anonymous visitor statistics cookies
Turning cookies off
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. Doing so, however, will likely limit the functionality of ours and a large proportion of the world's websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.
