The Keats –Shelley Memorial Association is a registered charity and a registered not for profit company ( ‘’ KSMA ‘’). It promotes the memory of the Romantic Poets, particularly Keats, Shelley, Byron and their associates. The Poets spent a significant time in Italy so KSMA ‘s mission involves activity in the UK and in Italy.
We rely on volunteers who are active in carrying out its objectives and other people who take an interest in KSMA by contributing financial support and / or participate in its events. To maintain its objectives we need to store personal data on individuals involved with the Association so we can keep in touch with them. These individuals are called 'data subjects’.
This is so we can send out send out invitations to our poetry and essay prize events, collect subscriptions from Friends, share data between our in –house colleagues in the UK and Italy, and enable on-line sales of items such as books and journals.
We may also organise fundraising appeals and make enquiries about potential donors / sponsors, since as a charity we always have to look for new funding. We may need to keep statistics relating to our activities.
Our Policy for keeping personal data concerning data subjects is as follows :
David Leigh-Hunt, Hon. Company Secretary, Keats-Shelley Memorial Association, Registered Office 11 Staple Inn, London WC1V 7QH, firstname.lastname@example.org: keeps data of individuals interested in attending the Keats-Shelley Prize Awards and other London-based event.
