Who we are

Our website address is: http://cultivatingcally.com.

Cultivating Cally is part of the Cally Festival, working in partnership with Islington Play Association. This privacy policy will explain how our organisation uses the personal data we collect from you when you use our website.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We collect the following data: Personal identification information (Name, email address, postcode, phone number, age); We will also collect your comments, submitted media and IP address.

The purpose of this is to understand our audience and open a dialogue with people who interact with this website.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

For the purposes of the project, we may pass on your comments to our third party partner organisations. Namely Islington Play Association, Islington Council, Copenhagen Youth Project, Global Generation. We may also use your comments in our social media or printed materials.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Your submitted designs will become the property of Cultivating Cally. We will display these on our social media and website, and may use in print and press publicity. By uploading images to this site or submitting via email or other means, you are consenting for us to use the submitted media for the purposes of promoting this project. That promotion may take the form of printed material or digital formats published on this website or our social media sites.

Contact forms

In the contact forms we may request your name, age, postcode, email address and telephone number. This is for the purposes of monitoring the response to our project by the community so we can make sure that local residents and businesses are getting involved in the conversation. By submitting your contact details (email and telephone number) you are agreeing to receive updates from us on the Cultivating Cally Project and related projects. By collecting your postcode only, we will use this data to map out approximate locations of respondents to the project, which will assist us in identifying gaps in our communications to residents, and make sure that news and information on the project is available within those areas.
