Protecting Your Privacy
Here we outline WHAT information we store, and HOW we use it. We accept how sensitive our lifestyle choice can be to some people, therefore we have tried to explain all our processes fully to you
Personal information will never be sold, shared, or rented by BMFC without your prior consent. It should be noted that, because BMFC does not control the privacy practices of external links, we advise that you read and fully understand their privacy policies.
Information We Collect And Why We Collect It
Places to a BMFC Party are allocated to BMFC members only and are secured by completing our online Booking In Form. Guests who are not yet BMFC members grant us permission to retain their personal information for our records by submitting this form.
The Booking In form requires your real name and your real address, your mobile number, email address and a recent face picture.
We require this information for Health & Safety purposes and will only ever share this information with Emergency Services.
We do not offer ‘Guest” entries at ANY of our events
Our Party ‘Booking In’ process asks for the following information – this is why we collect it
1) Are you a Couple, Single Male, or Single Female?
We ask this to maintain a good balance of guests within a party.
3) Your name(s)
We need this to match your ID, and it’s recorded in our membership database to allow us to find your information.
4) Your Mobile Phone Number(s)
We ask for this so we have an emergency way of contacting you or to query an invalid email address
5) Email address
We ask for this so we can respond to you, however it may then used for email marketing
6) Date of Birth
Obviously this is an over 18 only community, and we need to ensure everyone attending is 18+
7) Your Address
A legal requirement for H&S purposes
8) A Recent Face Picture (if you are asking for a COUPLES Place then we need a picture of you TOGETHER) – this is stored for H&S purposes and will be used to identify you should the need arise
9) Swinging Experience, Swinging Knowledge & Expectations for the evening
Here we are after the reasons why you’d like to join us at a BMFC Party. You can add whatever you wish that may further your case to join. We read it to ensure that guests have a good understanding of the swinging lifestyle, and have realistic expectations for the evening.
10) How did you hear about us?
This will assist our marketing team and helps drive future marketing strategies
11) Web Site User Name.
This is asking for any alias used on swinging web sites. “BMFC Parties” on Fab Swingers, for example will allow us to verify you as genuine when you join us at a party, if requested. It also gives us another way of contacting you in the future should the need ever arise.
We provide several tick boxes you must agree to before we accept your Booking Form.
What do we do with Membership Data?
1) We take non-attendance at our parties very seriously as this can and sometimes does affect the success of a party as it may skew the male:female ratio. We therefore record non-attendance and refer to it when processing future party requests
2) We send out regular E-Newsletters to our members. We like to inform you, or remind you of upcoming events, collaborations, special offers, competitions and specific changes to the BMFC. We always provide you with an opt-out “Unsubscribe” option at the foot of every email we ever send you.
We do not provide any third parties with our Data. We do have associations with many venues across the UK, however your data is NEVER given to them. We do not provide data to our own members regarding other members, nor do we provide data to people, claiming to have an association with a member.
On very rare occasions, members may be required to make payment in advance (for special events, holidays etc) This information is not stored or recorded in any way once the transaction has occurred.
