Privacy Policy

Veg on the Edge are a group of local people working together in their spare time to support opportunities for community food growing in Saltaire, Shipley (UNESCO World Heritage Site). We look after five public growing spaces in the area and run regular growing sessions, events and fundraising activities throughout the year.

Veg on the Edge is a constituted community group and does not operate to make a profit (and as such does not share or sell any of your data), but this Privacy Policy explains what data we hold, and why we hold it.

Joining our Email Newsletter Mailing List
When you sign up to our mailing list we use a third-party provider, Mailchimp, to deliver emails to you. We may gather statistics around email opening and clicks to help improve our emails in the future. For more information see Mailchimp’s privacy policy. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails, or by emailing and asking to be removed from the mailing list.

Event bookings
When you book a place on an event run by Veg on the Edge we use a third-party provider, Eventbrite, to manage bookings. Please see their privacy policy. We will use your email address to keep in touch with you about the event you’ve booked and, occasionally, to let you know about future events that may be linked with what you have already booked. Let us know if that’s not okay by emailing us at

If you become a member of Veg on the Edge (for example, regularly joining our growing sessions, attending planning meetings or helping to run our fundraising activities) we will collect your email address with your consent. This data will be held by appointed Officers of Veg on the Edge who will use this to contact you directly with details of our group meetings and other relevant information.

Should you no longer wish to attend or receive this information please notify our Secretary and they will remove you from this circular list and delete your data.

Other people, not us, control these platforms. We are not responsible for this kind of sharing. We recommend you should review the terms and conditions and privacy policies of the social media platforms you use. That way, you will understand how they will use your information, what information relating to you they will place in the public domain, and how you can stop them from doing so if you wish.

Any posts or comments you make about us on our blog will be shared with all other members of that service and the public at large. Any comments you make on these services and on social media in general must be not offensive, insulting or defamatory.
