Privacy


Gaymers iNC. aims to bring LGBT+ geeks and gamers in London together to make lasting friendships. To do this we sometimes need to process any personal data you choose to share with us. This page explains when we do that, why we do it and how we do it, so you can make privacy choices that are right for you.

Our guiding principle is that we never collect more data than necessary and we do everything we can to keep that data safe.

Joining our Facebook group

Gaymers iNC. does not keep a copy of your private data when you join the Facebook group. The group administrators will be able to see your join request, your public profile information, the date you joined the Facebook group, and the answers you provided to the ‘member request questions’. If you leave the Facebook group any posts you have made will remain on the group unless you delete them. Your interaction with the Facebook group is processed entirely by Facebook. For more information read the Facebook privacy guide.

While the Facebook group is a closed group so we can manually approve members, it is not a secret group. Other people may be able to see that you have joined the group.

Signing up for our newsletter with MailChimp

You can submit your email address on our events page to receive our events newsletter, which we usually send out every few weeks. You’ll be the first to know what events are coming up and when tickets will be available.

We will only use your email address to send you our newsletter and to invite you to share feedback with Gaymers iNC. and you can unsubscribe at any time by following the unsubscribe link in the emails you receive.

We will not use your email address for anything else.

The service is operated by MailChimp. When you enter your email address, it will be stored by MailChimp so that we can send you our newsletter. For more information check the MailChimp privacy policy.

Sending us event feedback

Occasionally we post a link to a feedback form so that members can help us improve our events. This service is operated by Typeform. We do not receive any information other than what you type into the form. For more information read the Typeform privacy guide.

Buying event tickets with Universe

We use our ticketing partner Universe to sell tickets to our events. Ticket sales made on gaymersinc.com are also processed by Universe. As part of the sale process, Universe collects personally identifiable information and payment information. For more details read the Universe privacy policy.

Gaymers iNC. never receives your payment information when you buy a ticket from Universe. We do see your email address so we can contact you about your order. We also see the names you have put on your tickets and the time and date you bought your tickets. This information is stored by Universe.
